    122: How raising your vibration can help you manifest with Mandy Morris

    122: How raising your vibration can help you manifest with Mandy Morris

    On today's podcast, I am joined by the international best selling author and teacher, Mandy Morris. Her first book, Love "It's How I Manifest" was a global success. Since then she's been featured all around the world, teaching millions how to create the life they want and shift out of limiting patterns. Mandy's science and love based methods for creating instant and lasting change has been researched, studied and taught by therapists and coaches in the Netherlands, Sweden, Ireland, UK and the US. Mandy began her career counseling, studying psychology and also working in Norway, researching how psychosomatic health issues are created by thoughts, not environmental factors, and how individuals brain patterns can change through her communicative therapy methodology.
    She has just released her latest book, Eight Secrets to Powerful Manifesting: How to Create the Reality of Your Dreams which focuses on the tiny actions we can all do to help us co-create the lives that make us feel really excited. Manifesting has become a bit of a buzzword and I've definitely started to find the conversation around it a bit fluffy, sometimes disingenuous, and oftentimes quite self-indulgent but Mandy's approach I found different. I'm so looking forward to diving into Mandy secrets and finding out how to live the most joyful and authentic life.

    Think like an inventor: Meet the record breaking FOREO founder Filip Sedic

    Think like an inventor: Meet the record breaking FOREO founder Filip Sedic

    On today's Pop of Wisdom episode, I am interviewing one of the best beauty inventors in the world and of our generation, Filip Sedic. Filip is a Bosnian born Swedish inventor with more than 200 patents assigned to his name. He is the founder and CEO of FOREO, the record breaking Swedish brand reinventing beauty and wellness for better. FOREO's beauty tech designs deliver professional level treatments at home to build self-confidence. Filip's designs at FOREO have won over 100 design and industry awards and he's broken records with a FOREO product being sold every 3 seconds in 2017.
    I am not surprised the quality FOREO upholds and everything they do is obvious. You may have heard about the Luna range of facial cleansing devices. The naturally clean 99.5% of impurities from the skin fully. As a serial entrepreneur, he started his career in the car technology industry and moved into the telecom world. Eight years later, he transitioned into the beauty world, setting up his first company, LELO, in Stockholm. Filip went on to develop his second company that focused on pharmaceutical grade feminine care products, and in 2013, he founded FOREO. Filip has changed the beauty world, democratized access to tools ten years ago, only the top beauty professionals could use. And as a consequence, I felt honoured to have him on the show today to admire his innovation and entrepreneurship.

    121: Master your ego and change your life with Marcus Weston

    121: Master your ego and change your life with Marcus Weston

    Today, I am joined by a very special guest, someone who actually changed my life about 11 years ago. That is the spiritual teacher, Marcus Weston. He started his career in finance number crunching for Goldman Sachs until about 20 years ago when he realised his mission was to support pioneering leaders to be better and to create real change. 
    This world desperately needs teachers like Marcus, and he has previously taught some of the most successful humans in the world, from business leaders to Heads of State to sports athletes. He draws from the ancient wisdom of Kabbalah to help expand consciousness, challenge thinking patterns and break open egos so that everyone can live the life they were meant to and deserve.

    120: Why movement is key to keeping your brain healthy with Caroline Williams

    120: Why movement is key to keeping your brain healthy with Caroline Williams

    A huge thank you to our podcast sponsor FOREO who have partnered with Current Body, the beauty device experts, to offer Not Perfect listeners an exclusive 20% off all FOREO products for the month of July. To claim your discount, head to Currentbody.com/notperfect. Thanks again to FOREO!
    Today's interview is Caroline Williams, a best selling author, a science writer and writes for many leading publications globally, from the New Scientist to the BBC to The Times, Telegraph, Boston Globe and many more. Her first hit book, Override, looks at rewiring the brain, and her latest book, Move, delves into why we need to move our body to look after our brain. This book had me glued to it and it is genuinely a must read for every single person. I had no idea how much of a disastrous affect our sedentary lives are having on IQ, mental health and of course, physical health as we've become addicted to our screens. Research suggests our intelligence and creativity has taken a hit and our anxious thoughts have multiplied as a result. I can't wait for you all to hear this conversation with Caroline, who writes in such a witty, fascinating and heavily researched backed way about why we need to move our legs and perhaps dance more too. I think we can all get on board with that!

    119: A new approach to managing anxiety with Dr Ellen Vora

    119: A new approach to managing anxiety with Dr Ellen Vora

    A huge thank you to our podcast sponsor FOREO who have partnered with Current Body, the beauty device experts, to offer Not Perfect listeners an exclusive 20% off all FOREO products for the month of July. To claim your discount, head to Currentbody.com/notperfect. Thanks again to FOREO!
    On today's podcast, I am interviewing Dr. Ellen Vora, a holistic psychiatrist who is on a mission to break open old ways of treating mental health and instead offer an approach that considers the whole person and address the root cause. She spent nine years in medical school and then took it upon herself to research other methods of addressing mental health struggles that didn't seem to be getting fixed. Ellen learnt that there were more effective ways of thinking about the mind away from reflexively prescribing medication to suppress symptoms. She now takes a 360 approach when looking after patients, focusing on everything from physical health, sleep, nutrition, digestion, thought patterns, relationships and community to our connection with nature, creativity and purpose.
    Not only this, but Dr. Ellen is an acupuncturist, a yoga teacher, and received her B.A. from Yale University and her M.D. from Columbia University. And she is board certified in psychiatry and integrative holistic medicine. I feel deeply passionate about Ellen's work because I fully agree the mind cannot fix the mind often. We can't talk about mental health as this separate thing. Luckily, Dr. Vora's new book, The Anatomy of Anxiety, is bursting with research and roads for where to understand mental health and anxiety in a new way, a way that truly gets to the heart of the problem and has the power to make a real significant change.

Inspiring and so interesting!

You can tell Poppy takes the time to really research her guests. The conversations are so deep and inspiring. Her episode with Helen Russell was fascinating and just what I needed to hear during this strange time. We should never feel the need to hide our feelings! I can’t wait for what Poppy produces in 2022!

My favourite podcast

Absolutely love this podcast, amazing guests and Poppy has an incredible outlook towards life. A must listen!

J Cameron very banal

What a disappointment was J Cameron I’m sorry to say. So painfully banal it was cringing at times.
I’ll say this again, maybe the podcast needs to be slightly longer to allow for some depth. Or maybe you haven’t dived enough into your life experience to go deeper with your guests. Guests are rarely asked interesting and compelling questions. Unfortunately the podcast comes across very flat. Sorry.
