    2020: Recovering from stress, anxiety and heartbreak

    2020: Recovering from stress, anxiety and heartbreak

    On today's show I interview Dr Soph! She is a fantastic Clinical Psycologist, therapist and speaker on all things emotional. In this episode we dive into the science and studies behind heartbreak and explore "why it hurts so much!'. We break-down anxiety, limiting beliefs and touch upon perfectionism. I hope you enjoy the episode and find lots of nuggets that can help you have a better 2020!


    A little bit about the NOT PERFECT podcast. Thank you for reading this and thank you for being here. The intention for this podcast is to share conversations on the subjects that can nurture our life from the inside. Just like physical exercise takes work and commitment, I believe our emotional health requires the same attention. Life throws curve balls unexpectedly and these can feel much more manageable when we know more about our mind. I hope these episodes are helpful in sharing tools, tips and insights into our brilliant hardware that can feel faulty but always fixable. I would love to hear from you if you have any feedback or guest suggestions, please find me on instagram @poppyjamie and @happynotperfect.

    The science behind how to feel happier

    This weeks guest is Alex Korb, the neuroscientist and author of 'The Upward Spiral: Using neuroscience to reverse the course of depression'. Alex's book was a huge inspiration in the creation of the Happy Not Perfect app, he breaks down the science behind happiness in a way that everyone can understand and apply to their life. In this episode we talk about the science behind gratitude and how research has proven we can ALL change our brain to feel happier and more fulfilled.

    How can hypnotherapy and past-life regression help?

    How can hypnotherapy and past-life regression help?

    In this episode I interview Daniel Ryan, second generation hypnotherapist and co-director at The Center for Integrative Hypnosis. We explore what hypnosis is, the benefits of past life regression (as well as clear up some myths) and break down what a hypnotherapy session might be like. Being a daughter of a hypnotherapist myself, I love this therapy and have always found tremendous benefit from it. I hope this conversation might open up your desire to try it out.


    Please find Daniel Ryan @danielryancrt on instagram and online www.danielryancrt.com to learn more.


    Lastly, would greatly appreciate any ratings or comments! Excited for all the chats coming in 2020 and thank you for being on the journey with me! For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    From guns and gangs to Buddhism and peace of mind

    From guns and gangs to Buddhism and peace of mind

    I met Hakim, a thought-leader, Ti Chi master and Vegan Buddhist in the summer and he blew me away. In this episode, Hakim shares his story that meanders through gangs in London, New York and Texas, attempted suicide, deteriorating health but finishes with him discovering Buddhism, Taoism and Ti Chi. He explores how suffering is our greatest friend and we finish the interview focusing on divine masculinity, a term that's not used enough. This is a soulful interview that touches upon many ideas I hope will resonate and inspire.
