    Weight Training | The No Bullsh*t Guide to Weight Training

    Weight Training | The No Bullsh*t Guide to Weight Training

    Welcome to episode 27. For me, getting into weight training has had a huge impact on my physical strength but most importantly, it’s massively strengthened my mental health too. Join me for this episode as I explore the many benefits weight training can have on your body and your mind; the misconceptions (i.e Bullsh*t) people have around women who practice it and the mindset blocks that might be holding you back from giving it a try.
    In this episode:
    Why weight training is incredible for building not only your physical strength but your mental strength, confidence and resilience too. How our perception of women lifting weights is changing for all the right reasons. Taking up space – how weight lifting can empower us to reverse the narrative of believing we need to make ourselves smaller to be accepted. Special mention to my trainer, Nicola, who has helped me reach my training goals so far. Please go and check her out over on Instagram!

    Laughter Yoga | The No Bullsh*t Guide to Laughter Yoga

    Welcome to episode 26. Today I am exploring the benefits of Laughter Yoga!
    Tuning in to the many benefits on offer, I gave Laughter Yoga a go under the expert instruction of Sara Kay, yoga teacher at Serious Laughter.

    In this episode:
    How laughter is a great way to complete your stress cycles and release pent up tension. Why picking certain tools to match your anxiety levels or personality is a good thing to keep in mind when trying something new. How creating time to experience joy can bring cumulative mental health improvements. If you’d like to learn more or give it a go yourself, please take a look at Sarah’s e-books here.

    Meditation | The No Bullsh*t Guide to Meditation

    Meditation | The No Bullsh*t Guide to Meditation

    Welcome to episode 25 and my first episode in this new series where I focus on the different tools available to us as part of our ‘tool kit’ for living a happier life.
    Today I’m talking about meditation. I hear many people say they are ‘too busy’ or ‘too hectic’ to sit and meditate for ten minutes – and as a fast-paced person myself I can totally relate! But that admission alone can be the biggest indicator that meditation might be just the thing we need.
    Today I share my own experience of revisiting meditation for the purpose of this episode; the benefits it brought me when I committed to it for a certain period of time and the awareness and perspective I was able to apply to my daily life as a result.
    In this episode:
    A reminder that your meditation practice doesn’t have to be perfect to be beneficial How using meditation as a circuit breaker can be a great way to regain control when you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed The different ways you can fit meditation into your busy life and the apps that are available to help you. Some useful resources from today’s episode:
    Meditation playlist on YouTube
    Kate Brown's meditation page

Straight talking advice

Helen does exactly what she says she will do! Listening is like having a chat with a friend over a cuppa/glass of wine. She tells you what you know you need to hear but shy away from telling yourself.

No nonsense practical advice

Helen’s advice is practical, supportive and so compassionate, not only that but you get her calming, encouraging voice as a bonus!

Love it, love it, love it!

I adore this podcast. Helen’s voice and style is so soothing and calm - I feel instantly relaxed when listening to her. Humorous at times and so relatable with practical tips and just the right length to listen to a full episode on my lunch time walk. Thank you! Xx
