    335. Compassion, Compliments & Sex Parties: Exploring Masculinity & Shame with James Walsham

    335. Compassion, Compliments & Sex Parties: Exploring Masculinity & Shame with James Walsham

    “What’s hard about being a man?” This is a question I’ve been asking a lot of (those who identify as) men lately. And while so many of our modern conversations are rightfully focused on helping marginalized communities heal and be supported after generations of oppression, men are often under-supported in the realm of mental and emotional health, and the results impact the entire collective.
     
    This is why people like James Walsham “The Compassionate Man” and others have begun creating platforms to help men shake off generations of outdated and toxic paradigms around masculinity and societal expectations to have somewhere to do the work of self-discovery, expanding their worldviews, opening up emotionally, strengthening their relationships and growing as humans.
     
    In this episode, James and I are talking about:
     
    Why men often struggle to open up emotionally Why men often don’t give compliments to other men How women can better understand and support men How to deal with sexual shame and guilt Exploring sexual fantasies, how sex parties work and the safety measures involved Why social media is a great tool for learning and joining conversations  Where men can find men’s groups, men’s circles and men’s communities

    The One Question To Ask Next Time You’re In An Argument

    The One Question To Ask Next Time You’re In An Argument

    The root cause of every argument or disagreement in a relationship almost always goes deeper than what triggers the argument in the first place. For instance, if there’s a breakdown over the dishes not being done or a messy house, it’s never really about chores. 
     
    In this quick episode, I’m going to explain how to get to the root cause by using one simple question to ask both yourself and them. 
     
    You’ll be shocked at what arises and how it helps you solve problems and open up communication.
     
    Have a listen, try it out and please let me know how it works for your relationship!

    The REAL & Underrated Love Languages

    The REAL & Underrated Love Languages

    A love language is how one expresses and receives love through actions or words. The term was popularly coined in the book “The 5 Love Languages” by Gary Chapman.
     
    But I want to take that list way deeper.
     
    Because to me, how we express love also includes some even smaller, but vastly underrated actions, inactions (I’ll explain) and levels of vulnerability and openness that are necessary for building better relationships. 
     
    So in this episode, I’m running down my list of “12 Underrated Love Languages That Go A Long Way” and why we need to pay attention to these small, yet massive things:
     
    Ask genuine questions with curiosity Active listening & slowing down speech “I was thinking of you.” Laughter and playfulness Loyalty  Presence Open, honest communication Choose people who choose you back Protective instincts Warmth, sweetness and sense of ease Take your “armour” off  Create openings  
     
    I’ll explain each in detail - these will completely revolutionize your relationships! 
     
    Also, I’d love to hear any love languages you would add to this list. How do YOU show and receive love? DM me or email me (contacts below).

    Your Cycle is Your Superpower & Building Strong Ass Women with Claire Falconer

    Your Cycle is Your Superpower & Building Strong Ass Women with Claire Falconer

    My dear friend Claire Falconer is a literal ray of sunshine and one of the most knowledgeable humans I've come across when it comes to helping women (and couples) get the most out of their hormones and menstrual cycles. Once we deeply understand the phases and signals of a woman’s cycle, we can then leverage it not just for conception and pregnancy, but for every aspect of women’s daily lives, health and relationships. 

    It starts with busting the modern myths and stigmas around a woman’s cycle, and instead working with it to vastly improve physical health, emotional health, fitness & weight loss, sleep quality, energy level, and of course, everything to do with preconception, pregnancy and postpartum health.

    Claire Falconer is a personal trainer, yoga teacher and health coach who has worked with hundreds of clients all over the world, specializing in women's health, especially hormonal health, preconception, pregnancy and post natal women.

    In this episode, we’re talking about: 

    How men’s and women’s hormonal cycles are different How a woman’s cycle is an indicator of good or poor health The importance of hormone balance How to work with your hormones The phases of a woman’s cycle and how to embrace its energetic highs and lows How menstrual cycles affect energy levels, weight loss and sleep quality How to increase chance of conception and pregnancy Tips for a healthier pregnancy  How to plan workouts and diet around your cycle Effects of birth control Facts about premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and how to better control symptoms
    I would love to know your takeaways from this one - a lot of information here about something so common, yet so often misunderstood. Reach out with comments via DM or email (contacts below).

    How to Gain Respect

    How to Gain Respect

    The deepest foundational layer of any relationship is respect. Respect means honouring someone’s most genuine self, despite imperfections or differences. Respect provides the base for which feelings of trust, safety and well-being grow upon.
     
    But gaining someone’s respect can feel like a massive challenge. When we get caught in the trap of people pleasing and perfectionism, we’re not our authentic selves. We then compromise our values, boundaries and energy - all innate qualities that people ultimately respect in us, whether they like us or not.
     
    In this episode, we’re talking about:



    Why admitting your mistakes can benefit your relationship The importance of honesty, integrity and constantly striving to be congruent Why mastering your craft is an important element of respect How to be your most genuine, authentic self How to set better boundaries with yourself and others How gaining respect starts with self respect Why gaining respect is (in my opinion) even more important than gaining trust, and how the two are closely interwoven  
    On that note, a question I’ve been asking many people lately: “What’s worse, losing trust in someone or losing respect?” 
     
    What are your thoughts? Let me know your response - DM or email me (info below). Would love to know your thoughts on this question or the topic of respect. Please reach out & share this episode!

    Managing Your Energetic Capacity & Clearing Space for the Life & Relationships You Want

    Managing Your Energetic Capacity & Clearing Space for the Life & Relationships You Want

    We talk a lot about managing our time, but not managing our energy. Truth is, energy is a far more valuable resource than time. Energy propels us toward the life and relationships we truly want. 
     
    But we only have so much of it.
     
    So how do we stop giving our energy to things that are draining us and holding us back? It starts by recognizing what you may not even realize is depleting your energy and letting go of it. In many cases, this could mean letting go of huge, longstanding anchors in your life - including people. 
     
    In this episode, we’re talking about:
     
    The most common energy-draining areas of your life  How to boost your energy with kindness Why you need to let go let go of some relationships - even long ones How different people, work and habits can increase your energy A helpful 3-step Energy Audit to help identify exactly where you should be putting your energy and where to stop.

The best friend advice you didn’t know you needed!

Emily approaches hard topics with one priority in mind, you!

I found this podcast at the exact right time - carrying messages and lessons I have desperately needed. I have a new relationship to MYSELF! I have had uncomfortable conversations that I have been avoiding, I have put up boundaries that I was seeking and finding my truth that I had been squashing. Forever grateful.

Invest some time in these podcasts - you won’t regret it!

Emily is an old soul in her thoughts and the things she shares. I always look forward to the next release for learning, for the occasional guffaw and for the wisdom. Thanks Emily! Jann
