    Daring to Lead with Kaila Colbin

    Daring to Lead with Kaila Colbin

    Do you ever meet someone, or hear someone speak, and just feel completely enamoured with their brain capacity? I felt like this recently after I attended a Dare To Lead™ workshop facilitated by Kaila Colbin.

    Kaila completely embodies the work of Brene Brown and expresses it like it is her own. She presents with captivating storytelling, knowledge, and practicality. Following the talk, I discovered that this topic is just one of her many areas of expertise. See her incredibly impressive bio here https://simonedennywellness.com/daring-to-lead-with-kaila-colbin/.

    Kaila is also a leading futurist teaching people about exponential technologies and their impact on humanity, she is the curator of TEDx Christchurch and TEDx Antarctica, and has trained with Al Gore to be a Climate Change Ambassador.

    To me, Kaila is someone who is daring to lead in her own life. In our conversation, she shares with me how we can lead and rise in our own lives, whether that is within our own families, at work or in the community. We talk about courage, vulnerability, and shame. Kaila shares how to have courageous conversations and why belonging is so much more important than fitting in, plus so much more!

    If your ears are pricking up around this topic then I highly recommend joining Kaila for her upcoming 2-day workshop in Auckland (September) and Christchurch (November).

    She is kindly offering readers/listeners 10% off the workshop.

    Why Meaningful Connection is Our Lifeblood

    Why Meaningful Connection is Our Lifeblood

    Never before has it been so clear to me that meaningful connection is one of THE most important things you can do for your mental and physical health.

    If only, when we visited a doctor or a therapist, there was a question about your meaningful relationships; about how connected you are feeling to others or if you are feeling alone or isolated in certain parts of your life.

    These simple questions could add years to your life, could help you find new solutions to anxiety and depression and could provide valuable insights into things like inflammation in the body and heart disease. All of which are related to loneliness and not feeling connected. 

    Recent research has demonstrated loneliness can increase your likelihood of mortality by up to 25%! This is equivalent to smoking 15 cigarettes a day and is more of a threat than obesity. 

    In the podcast today I share about the importance of meaningful connection, the impact of loneliness and provide 6 research-backed ways to create more connection in your life. 

    In the words of Johann Hari, ’people need tribes like bees need hives’.

    Taming Your Digital Dependency with Dr. Kristy Goodwin

    Taming Your Digital Dependency with Dr. Kristy Goodwin

    It is no secret that our digital dependency has become a ‘thing’.

    Many of us have good intentions when it comes to how much we use our technology, but somehow our lives have become so interdependent that we feel we ‘need’ to have our devices tethered to us like another limb.

    Research tells us the average person checks their phone 80 times a day and that we own 3.2 digital devices each. Even if we are not on our phone we are often plugged into another device or multiple devices.

    I have noticed my own reliance on my phone increase in recent years and as a result, I have developed a love-hate relationship with it. As parents, we often focus on managing our children’s screen time but conveniently overlook our own digital dependency.

    I think we can all appreciate that we missing magic moments in life because our heads are buried in a screen. I have so many questions about how this dependency is impacting our lives. Questions such as:

    • How is technology impacting our mental and physical health?
    • Why can’t we just switch off? 
    • What is the cost of digital distraction? 
    • How is it impacting children’s brains?
    • How do we not feel overwhelmed by what innocent eyes are seeing online? 
    • How is our productivity being affected by constant distraction? 
    • How do we manage ourselves and our children when it comes to technology?

    I decided to bring in one of Australia’s leading experts in Digital Health and Wellbeing, Dr. Kristy Goodwin. Kristy shares her wealth of knowledge on the topic of taming our digital dependency and helped to answer some of my burning questions on the topic.

    Please do check out Kristy’s website – it has a wealth of free resources, courses and webinars to help manage your relationship with technology (and your children’s).

    Balancing Hustle vs Flow

    Balancing Hustle vs Flow

    Have you ever found yourself paralysed by busyness? You have so much to do that you have become completely unproductive because you feel overwhelmed. The pressure has caused your creative juices to dry up or you are sitting with writer’s block. On the flip side have you been out on run, at a gallery or in the car listening to your favourite song and suddenly you have a hit of inspired inspiration, the ideas are sparking, and you can’t wait to take action?

    Let’s talk hustle and flow

    From a very young age most of us are taught that to achieve in life you must work hard – in fact the harder you work the more you achieve (sound familiar). I have subscribed to this societal and family value for most of my life. That was until I hit 40 and someone introduced me to a new paradigm of living. This new paradigm is not just about working hard and hustling for results, it is about that tapping into creativity, inspiration and fulfillment.

    What if you could achieve more by doing less? Sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it! Well, I have been unlearning the old ways of productivity and discovering the joy and effectiveness of working in a flow state. This is not to say there aren’t times to hustle, to dig deep and to work hard but I believe this must be balanced with flow.

    Want to know what a flow state is?

    Understand the benefits of a flow state?

    Would you like to know how to get in a flow state?

    Take a listen to today’s podcast – I share my insights on this topic in this short 20-minute episode.
