Welcome to The Citrine Room Podcast.
With Monita Rajpal, former CNN anchor now a news & lifestyle blogger at The Citrine Room. The focus of this podcast is to share news commentary, life lessons, ideas, & stories that expand the way we think and challenge the way we feel. All with a goal to help us find our way towards living our most authentic life.
Dolce Far Niente
The sweetness of doing nothing. A concept with which we aren't expected to be familiar or even comfortable. Yet cultivating space in time to just be, and not feel the need to always be productive, is important for our physical, mental, and emotional health.
The Mixed Emotions of Motherhood
Motherhood is a torrent of emotions swirling around. Love, guilt, fear, joy. All of which occur at the same time. What I would come to realise in the midst of postpartum depression is that at the core of motherhood isn't expectation of what I should be, but more an appreciation for what I am.
What is Normal?
What I would consider normal, someone else wouldn't. So why do we even keep thinking there is a level, a standard that we should all we be trying to live up to? Why is normal, the way it is currently defined, considered gospel?
Do you ever feel like your life is stuck at a red light? Or just at yellow? Ready to go but still not moving? Learn to make the most of life's traffic lights.
Post Traumatic Growth Opportunity
Post Traumatic Growth Opportunity is a tool we can use to understand what we are capable of, what is possible, after going through difficult times; recognising the opportunity that can only come from having endured what was seemingly unbearable. From rising out of the ashes after disaster to using "revolutionary", redefining power by changing our narratives, and finding hope as a way forward out of darkness.
And Breathe: My Life through Yoga
Yoga is about the process, not about perfection. It is about recognising we're all a work in progress and that nobody is perfect.
