    Using Your Love Language To Build A Self Care Plan

    Using Your Love Language To Build A Self Care Plan

    Everyone gives and receives love differently. And I’m not just talking about relationships…I’m talking about self love, too! Your love language can also translate into a self care love language, which helps us avoid burnout. 
    This theory came to me in a patient appointment, and I'm so excited about it. In short, your love language is the way that you receive love the best. There are five love languages: Words of affirmation, physical touch, quality time, gifts, and acts of service.
    How you receive love best can some into play for self care as well.
    Certain self care activities that make me feel relaxed and filled with self love might not have the same impact for you. So understanding how you receive love the best will help you create a self care plan that will work for you.
    This podcast outlines how you might want to think about that.

    066: This Is Your Pandemic Brain on Steroids with Dr. Dayna Lee Baggley, Ph.D., Registered Psychologist - Sponsored by the NS Government

    066: This Is Your Pandemic Brain on Steroids with Dr. Dayna Lee Baggley, Ph.D., Registered Psychologist - Sponsored by the NS Government

    Are you forgetting things? Stumbling over your words? Feeling exhausted? Not wanting to do anything but feeling wired all the same? 
    Turns out, your pandemic brain has been firing on all cylinders and this, right now, is the result. It's called languishing, and it's a form of Burnout. 
    Today on the podcast, I'm joined by Dr. Dayna Lee Baggley, Ph.D., Registered Psychologist, to discuss exactly why we're feeling how we're feeling and what we can do about it. 
    Plus, she let us in on a little forward information about her 6 week online course launching July 16th that is designed to help you go from languishing to flourishing. 
    This
    workshop uses evidence-based techniques to address pandemic fatigue, burnout and
    languishing and how to move forward successfully through the next stages of the pandemic
    (e.g., “post vaccine”). In particular it addresses the issue that the antidote to burnout isn't rest,
    it's re-igniting a sense of meaning and purpose (e.g., "value-based living"), re-connecting
    socially, and integrating our experiences from the pandemic into our understanding of
    ourselves. Participants will be introduced to some of the latest empirically based skills and
    techniques that have been shown to improve well-being and sense of purpose. The workshop
    provides real-life, applicable skills to move from languishing to flourishing.

    When you want to understand vaccines, you go straight to the woman in Nova Scotia, if not Canada, who understands their impact the most.

    On Exercise, Endorphins & Building a Community Online with Suzi Fevens

    On Exercise, Endorphins & Building a Community Online with Suzi Fevens

    I think Suzi Fevens may be one of my favourite people in the world. She's energetic, charasmatic, sarsastic, witty and obsessed with helping people move their bodies. She is a fitness, Zumba & yoga instructor living in the lovely Annapolis Valley, Canada. Her life revolves around yoga, tea, cats, lattes, her family and reading (not necessarily in that order!)
    Today on the podcast Suzi and I sat down and talked about her health journey, her passionate commitment to community, and how she is adapting to an online and in person world. 
    You can find Suzi online at www.confessionsofafitnessinstructor.com where you can connect with her work or any of the amazing links listed below. Plus, you might see me online at her next Monday night online themed night! I LOVE it.

    How To Talk To Your Doctor About All Your COVID-19 Questions with Dr. Sarah Fraser, MD - Sponsored by the NS Government

    How To Talk To Your Doctor About All Your COVID-19 Questions with Dr. Sarah Fraser, MD - Sponsored by the NS Government

    Have you ever wondered what it's like to have an informed conversation with your medical team about a public health choice?
    Dr. Sarah Fraser does. 
    She's a family doctor and hospitalist here in Nova Scotia who has been front line on the COVID-19 Ward in Antigonish and Halifax. She thoughtfully gave us some of her time today to help us understand what that has been like, what she has learned, and more importantly to explain what informed consent means. 
    She also breaks down the conversations you should be having with your doctor and medical team about how to gauge your risk of both contracting COVID and/or the vaccine. 
    I am so thankful to Sarah for this conversation, because it helped me understand so much better the conversations we truly should be having. I hope you get the chance to have these same conversations with your medical team too!

Say Do Gap!

This podcast changed my life. I encourage everyone I know to listen to it! It’s something we all need to hear and we aware of. Dr. Ashley is one of the actual best humans I know, she’s learning what she preaches and that makes her real. She’s such a safe space!

JennNeilson ,

Love Dr. Ashley

Great podcast with loads of info on a variety of health topics. I’ve learned so much listening.

Tikoschica ,

Love this podcast!

Ashely touches on such a wide variety of important and supportive topics. She’s a great speaker and much of what she touches on validates our need to feel human, authentic and balanced. We aren’t giving ourselves permission, as women to do what feels authentic and best for our individual selves. Ashely gets that and is guiding us to that permission.
