    Broken to beautiful, healing, health and human connection

    Broken to beautiful, healing, health and human connection

    Todays episode features Shawn Wells MPH, LDN, RD, CISSN, FISSN and is a humdinging top to toe neuronal frazzle of delight.

    Which may sound like a fangirling overload, however sometimes there are some people who speak in such an eloquent way that all I can say is this is a must listen/watch for you!

    Shawn is balanced, critical, and speaks about his journey from the deepest places of what he calls his brokenness to his place of beauty which is a genuine well intentioned place of helping others heal. We talk positivity, finding your purpose, passion and tribe for longevity. We look at health indicators and how to sift through the plethora of information relating to diet and nutrition. Most importantly Shawn reiterates purpose and mindset and how happiness might just be the key to fulfilment and those extra few years on your life!

    Shawn is a Nutritional Biochemist, Registered Dietician, Certified Sports Nutritionist and Chief Clinical Dietician and Worlds Greatest Formulator, ..basically I think he is a wizard of all things from research to the mitochondria, "now thats what I call science!" (which will be the name of the next episode when I get chance to speak with him in the future)

    He is on Insta and Twitter as the same name so go follow him quick sharp!

    Top down-Bottom Up? Learning about who you really are, heuristics of Education, Work, Life and Flow.

    Top down-Bottom Up? Learning about who you really are, heuristics of Education, Work, Life and Flow.

    This episode is a fantastic start to 2020 for anyone who still might not know who they are, thinks they have to have all the qualifications and skills by the age of 21 and who may need a reassuring reflection as we head into the new year new you rhetoric.

    Im joined by Sagar Doshi today and this is a super jam packed top to bottom episode of zippy one line motivational assurances that you are doing just fine as you are, for example Sagar quotes  "where you study or work is not the sum of your life" (I love this by the way)

    We talk how tests/exams/assessments are carried out to 'measure your output' and how this is often seen as the reflection of the entire picture and how this affects young people and adults and yet course correction and progress are a part of life.

    Sagar is a product manager at Imbellus who are a games/assessment studio that seeks to measure abstract skills—and ultimately, human potential—using game-based assessments. So this episode travels over technology and human domains and the conversation is packed with the all important discussion of reaching your potential.



    I loved this episode so much, I have listened back to it (which is unheard of), its that good, IMHO.

    See you next time

    I refer to Daniel Kahneman's book "thinking fast and slow" so this is your check in on the show notes for it.

    Self- improvements and health, how deep learning about you can improve who you are

    Self- improvements and health, how deep learning about you can improve who you are

    Today i'm joined by Tony Wrighton; he is the presenter of the podcast Zestology (link below), Sky sports presenter, author and fairly new Father to a 9 month old.

    This is an episode that transitions over a number of subjects and is one about being human, having flaws, attempting to rid ourselves of these parts we don't like. A fascinating set of topics for those of you interested in human beingness, self development, and personal growth. 

    We talk about Tony's journey into health and wellbeing, which takes us into Emotional Freedom technique (EFT) also known as trapping. Tony talks about his self confessed addictive personality and how this ties in with tech, we look at digital hygiene, morning routines and modelling of behaviours to children (whether they are 9 months old or in their 20's). 

    We even get into therapy, NLP, relationships and what having a baby does to sleep (and more). We talk red wine and resveratrol, oura rings and spreadsheets for tracking health, quite the jam packed episode!

    Tony's website and link to his podcast are below is his histamine site that he refers to; so go ahead and get some more energy and vitality from his time and effort, its another good recommendation to top up your knowledge!

    **For those of you who are body trained/aware or perhaps a therapist see if you can hear the moment that the synchrony of attunement occurs between Tony and I and feel the energy shift, its quite remarkable and very lovely and as always, its about heart not head.

    Light - a therapy all of/in it's own

    Light - a therapy all of/in it's own

    Todays episode is part one of a conversation I'll be coming back to at a later date with my friend Mads Juhl Christensen, whom I met whilst volunteering at the biohackers Summit that took place in September this year in London and was the most awesome beginning of a new health movement thats going to be the way we all (hopefully) turn towards taking a step to a longer, happier and healthier life!

    SO I asked Mads to come on the podcast as he is a font on knowledge and similarly like my other guests he also has a story to tell about his health journey. We fill this hour with so much information that you'll likely need to go back and listen to it again. I make no apologies for our enthusiasm and occasional tangents around topics. 

    We talk light and how your cells rely on this at differing times of the day and what this actually does at a cellular level, we talk hormones and the process of support through light in order to carry out this function and why getting outside is probably the best free hack/gift there is on the planet for mental health and wellbeing.



    Way too much to describe on the show notes, so go ahead and dive in on this subject, theres so much to know that we wil be back to visit this alongside the EMF issues we allude to in the episode



    Take care and see you soon

    Distracted Driving- When smartphones may result in not so smart decisions behind the wheel

    Distracted Driving- When smartphones may result in not so smart decisions behind the wheel

    Todays episode is aimed at the Christmas season which begins now and beyond. Todays message is based on a podcast episode with Neil from over two years ago; the message still needs to be shared and to create a discussion.
    What is interesting about this message is it you the listener that we are asking to share and to begin the conversation.
    Questions such as: Do you really drive safely at all times and do you take phone calls whilst you drive? Listen to Neil and discuss why this is actually an issue and how we are not capable of doing this with the level of concentration that we think we have. (Its neuroscience!!) nCognitive bias on this topic matter si what we address in this episode. Neil reflects "just because you can and its' not 'illegal' doesn't make it safe", so consider whats going on in the cars around you and if the driver, that stranger truly believes that they can multitask and keep other road users safe including you and your family?

    This may seem like a fact that you are already mentally disputing, I mean not many of us like to think we have flaws and many of us don't want to think our driving may be under par or indeed that we are unable to carry out a task due to a limitation of our brains functioning; surely we are intelligent and what about the fact we have been driving for so long? Listen to Neil and I in this episode and please feed back and share this epsidie to begin this conversation.

    Let's see this issue as important as Driving Under the Influence. Let's make a difference to our driving and perhaps that will be enough to model the behaviour for another.

    Why email security? Why?

    Today im joined by Donald Allen a cybersecurity writer, cybersecurity evangelist. This means Donald likes to explain how cybercriminals can exploit, hurt and hack.

    Donald helps you understand how to create passwords that you can remember, why you need to keep your webcam covered when not in use and why you need to protect your emails as a priority. How criminals socially engineer their emails to phish you and why these are getting much more sophisticated. Why public wifi is an issue and what you need to know about these hotspots!

    Why if you won or run a business you need to ensure your staff are aware of these issues, How emails work, why you need to know about servers, 





    Here is Donalds website in case you didn't catch it the show so you can get his book.

Thank you

I’d like to thank Kath for her informative podcasts. I’m a year 4 counselling student and they have learnt me a lot. More than just that, she’s affirmed to me what cyber world is really like for our children. I think raising awareness, creating an education to help teenagers have open dialogue with their parents/careers is nothing but positive. Many children suffer in silence, many parents and loved ones are unaware of what teens/children face too. Creating a space to help both parties is great. Well done for doing this as I have not come across anybody else highlighting this either. There is definitely a need for this. Life can be tough in a cyber world. Especially on children. Any way to help is a huge bonus in my eyes.
