    Bullet Points | 5 ways to be a more positive person.

    Bullet Points | 5 ways to be a more positive person.

    In a brand new episode of the podcast I discuss the five tactics that can help you become a more positive person.
    Not only are these great habits to incorporate into your life, they are also proven to reduce physical stress, strengthen coping mechanisms and encourage an overall feeling of calm.
    Positive thinking and being more positive are frequently cited as being helpful, especially when experiencing depression and anxiety, but it’s easier said than done. And someone telling you to ‘be more positive’ can be as effective as telling someone to ‘calm down’. 
    Hopefully what this episode does is offer a little more insight into the ‘how’ to be more positive. All the tactics are free and none take more than a few minutes.
    This podcast was inspired by the feedback I had from you for the last few Bullet Points episodes where we’ve discussed overwhelm, mental health and burnout so I hope you find it helpful.

    Alice Liveing returns to the podcast to share her feel-good habits, the strategies she uses and recommends to make sure every day is a good day.
    During our conversation @aliceliveing reveals how the key to her feel-good habits is finding things that are achievable every single day and these include:

    - Why she takes a book to bed with her.
    - The value of a morning routine that sets you up for the day ahead.
    - The benefits she feels from exercise and why there’s no right or wrong way to train.
    - The value to be found in ‘downloading’ your day when you get home/log-off.

    Making your strengths stronger with Renée Rouleau

    Making your strengths stronger with Renée Rouleau

    Renée Rouleau is a celebrity aesthetician and skincare expert who joins me on the podcast to share the story of her incredible career in beauty.
    From small beginnings Renée has become a household name not least because of her hugely popular blog, A-list client list and her habit of taking big risks and not fearing change.
    She has famously categorised skin into nine different types, that’s right, skin isn’t just dry, combination, normal or oily, and has a product for everything from long-term anti-ageing results to on-the-spot treatments that’ll deal with an unwanted blemish in no time.
    In this conversation @reneerouleau and I discuss:
    - How she came to really ‘understand’ skin.
    - Where business and beauty meet.
    - The importance of mentors in guiding you towards your goals.
    - Why knowing who you are and what you stand for is key.
    - The 13 questions she asks herself to make decision making not only quick but efficient.
    - Her nine skin types and why personalised skincare is so important.
    - Being an early-adopter to e-commerce and why big decisions and taking risks have always worked in her favour.

    Bullet Points | It's ok to not be ok.

    Bullet Points | It's ok to not be ok.

    It’s ok not to be ok.
    In a brand new episode of the podcast I discuss my mental health diagnosis of severe depression and anxiety back in 2016 and why it was so helpful.
    I’d always feared this kind of diagnosis would signpost me as a failure, but it actually signposted my way out of a lifetime of negative thinking, self-sabotaging behaviour and unhappiness.
    When I look back and ask myself if there’s anything I wish I’d done differently, it’s that I’d have asked for help earlier. Instead I spent years powering through, pushing it away and minimising how bad things were until eventually it all caught up with me and I had no choice but to address it.
    This podcast was prompted by the response to the video I posted on #IGTV about my mental health and as not everyone who follows me on social listens to the show - and vice versa - I wanted to share that audio again as the second half of the episode. It also contains the five books that I have found most helpful in understanding my own mental health issues but also understanding other people and what they may be going through too.
    The books featured are: 
    Lost Connections by @johann.hari
    The Four Tendencies by @gretchenrubin
    You Are a Badass by @jensincero
    First, We Make the Beast Beautiful by @_sarahwilson_
    How to Survive the End of the World by @technicallyron

Laughter and advice what is not to love!

The effort and commitment that goes into this podcast to deliver how quality advice and entertainment is crystal clear. So many episodes that I love - several that I have listened to more than once. Great guests that know the topic they are talking about well, helped by being asked great questions not just the obvious. Feel good habits was a gift in lock down, I laughed out loud at some and cried through others. Thank you!
