    The Drop In: Isolation is making our skin break out!

    The Drop In: Isolation is making our skin break out!

    ICYMI isolation is resulting in some major skin breakouts. Last week, I woke up with a pimple underneath my eyebrow. Other girls on the Women’s Health team have had their skin play up since lockdown, too. So I asked Dr Ginni Mansberg, a Sydney-based GP and co-founder of Evidence Skin Care (ESK), to explain what’s going on with all this adult acne and how we can fix our #isoskin probs.

    Laura Geitz: Netball glory and navigating change

    Laura Geitz: Netball glory and navigating change

    Laura Geitz is an icon of Australian netball. An absolute force on the court, she was a fearless defender who captained her beloved Queensland Firebirds and the Aussie Diamonds to great success, including world championships and a gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
     
    Since retiring in 2018, the Rebel ambassador and mum of two is still making her mark on the game. She does media commentary, runs netball clinics, mentors other athletes and has even designed a netball clothing range. Last year, the Firebirds renamed their Most Valuable Player Award as the Laura Geitz medal, highlighting how Laura – or Geitzy – really is the ultimate MVP.
      
    In this episode, Laura joins us to chat about epic netball rivalries, the wonderful chaos of parenthood and how what we see as a weakness can actually turn out to be our biggest strength.
     
    Plus, we cover:
    - Laura's earliest (and favourite) memories on and off the netball court
    - What it’s like to play sport for your country
    - Why it’s important to look to the past as well as the future
    - The new workout she’s hooked on
    - What having kids has taught her about health, judgement and her village

    The Drop In: Your head needs a break from bad news

    Permission to have moments of feeling good - even when you’re also feeling anxious, shit scared and sad - granted. Dr Addie Wootten, clinical psychologist and CEO of Smiling Mind, and meditation junkie Caitlin Cady tell us why it’s more important than ever to appreciate the little things in life.

    Teresa Palmer: Embracing the chaos of life

    Teresa Palmer: Embracing the chaos of life

    The reason we’re chatting to Teresa Palmer today has nothing to do with her acting cred (see: Ride Like A Girl and A Discovery of Witches) but everything to do with making sure that as women, we are talking more about our shared experiences. Not just the fun stuff, which we tend to do anyway, but especially when those experiences are hard.


    She has a new book out right now, Zen Mamas: Finding Your Path Through Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond (Ebury Illustrated, $34.99), which she cowrote with her friend Sarah Wright Olsen. And just like in the book, in our Uninterrupted chat, the mum to six-year-old son Bodhi, three-year-old son Forest and one-year-old daughter Poet; and 12-year-old stepson, Isaac, gets raw and honest. She talks about her pregnancy loss, how she and her husband Mark got through his experience of postpartum anxiety, and the way she’s navigating life through the coronavirus pandemic.


    In this episode we also chat about:
    ·     What she’s learnt about herself from being forced to slow down during the COVID-19 lockdowns
    ·     The guided meditations she does with her kids
    ·     The journaling app she uses to do a daily brain dump
    ·     Why she thinks we need to move away from the term “miscarriage” and talk instead about “pregnancy loss”
    ·     Cultivating moments of self-care in her day (“They are fleeting!”, she laughs)
    ·     Tiger King (because, isn’t everyone?)
    ·     Letting go of our expectations of motherhood

    The Drop In: Isolation is making us hungry

    The Drop In: Isolation is making us hungry

    One thing we’ve noticed going on with you, because it’s going on with our team at Women’s Health as well, is that while most of the world is in lockdown, our appetites are definitely not. But in this anxiety-ridden time during the coronavirus pandemic, how can we make sure we’re giving ourselves the comfort we need while also looking after our health? We asked accredited practising dietitian Chloe McLeod for her tips.


    We hope you enjoy this new regular episode, The Drop In, which we'll be, uh, dropping in on the weeks between our regular chats.

Thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Great conversations with some very talented inspirational women. The only improvement I would make is diversifying the guests. So far there are a few too many athletes and not enough guests from different wellbeing backgrounds. I still appreciate their stories but would appreciate a broader wellbeing focus.

Maggy97 ,

Really insightful

Loving the chats and the new eps with experts.
