    Podcast Episode 08: Prioritising Joy

    Podcast Episode 08: Prioritising Joy

    As we grow up and enter into adulthood we are told to put away childish things - to de-prioritise joy. We are taught that our joy is not important anymore.

    Moreover, when we do experience moments of joy, we allow our thoughts to thieve them from us - immediately imagining the worst. Something Brene Brown refers to as foreboding joy.

    But cultivating joy in our lives is important for our own strength and resilience. Without joy we have no antidote to sadness. We have no anchor in darkness - no way to turn on the light internally.

    In this episode we explore what brings us joy, what steals our joy, why the dance of light and darkness are important, and how we might deepen our connection to our own unique versions of joy.

    007 Podcast Episode - What Is Rewilding?

    007 Podcast Episode - What Is Rewilding?

    Short but sweet!

    In this episode I talk about the importance of reconnecting with ourselves, our communities and the planet - why we feel so disconnected in the first place, and what we can do about it.

    We can be happier without winning the lottery! We just have to start walking the path and rewilding. As Ram Dass said: “We are all just walking each other home.”

    “Practice listening to your intuition, your inner voice; ask questions; be curious; see what you see; hear what you hear; and then act upon what you know to be true. These intuitive powers were given to your soul at birth.” - Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run with the Wolves.

    :: The Howl & Blossom Podcast ::

    My name is Sian, and I’m a wild woman! I love deep connections, soul deep nourishment, and wild authenticity. I’ll always speak truthfully and I appreciate it when other people do the same with me. I’m kind, compassionate, and open. I talk a lot about mental health, wellbeing, feminism in various forms, the cycle of the moon, and the cycles we go through as human beings and women.

    My Howl & Blossom Community space offers explorations via guided meditations and journaling prompts every New Moon and Full Moon. It’s an authentic, safe space in which we journey home to ourselves, connect deeper with our communities, and nurture our relationship with nature.

    In addition to this podcast, I send out Moon Musings via email every New Moon and Full Moon (every two weeks) in which I muse about my latest life lessons and experiences, pour my heart out and generally share authentic writing with you.

    Podcast Episode 06: My Anxiety is Trying to Kill Me :: World Mental Health Day

    Podcast Episode 06: My Anxiety is Trying to Kill Me :: World Mental Health Day

    It's World Mental Health Day! And I've been riding the most serious wave of anxiety that I've experienced in years.

    This podcast episode is a raw, unedited account of my experiences over the past week. I talk about how I turned up to work and lasted 10 minutes, 7 of which I was crying. I describe how my anxiety meltdown felt, what I'm doing about it, and what I've learnt as a result.

    I've not edited myself at all. There are pauses, and a lot of fumbling and erm-ing, and I wanted to keep that in there to give you a true reflection on where I am at at the moment. Some of those pauses were due to me catching my breath while I tried not to cry.

    I hope this episode is relatable, and I hope it goes some way to combat the constant highlight reel we are exposed to with social media.

    If you're struggling right now, you are not alone. We're in this together. And there are thousands of us, millions even, who are managing our mental health in the best ways we know how.

    The more we share, the less stigma we face, and the more we learn.

    I'd love to hear about your mental health journey, and the tools you use to cope. Use the links below to get in touch.

    Podcast Episode 05: Body Positivity and Fatphobia

    Podcast Episode 05: Body Positivity and Fatphobia

    We are taught that thin is beautiful. That small is sexy. That we had better not take up too much space in the world because we will be unloveable if we do.

    I call BS on that.

    This fatphobia needs to stop. It’s making us all sick.

    **Disclaimer** This is an insight into my experience only. It is not representative of the entire population. Nor is it an in-depth and complete study of everything to do with body positivity and fatphobia - not by a long shot! But I had to start somewhere.

    Podcast Episode 03: Reframing Success and How We Feel About Achievement

    Podcast Episode 03: Reframing Success and How We Feel About Achievement

    We have the markers of success all wrong - we prioritise these external markers of success, instead of internal ones. And we’ve been brought up believing that the only way we can be successful in life is by hitting the external markers, as if life was a tick box exercise. In this podcast, I reframe the idea of success, and suggest alternative internal markers that I believe will ultimately lead to more fulfilled lives, happier people, and a more purposeful existence.  “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” - Albert Einstein
