    Lysander Bickham: The 16 year old CEO

    Lysander Bickham: The 16 year old CEO

    My guest for today's episode is the amazing 16 year old entrepreneur Lysander Bickham. Lysander is the founder of Leo’s Box - and eco friendly subscription box that’s filled with either home or beauty products and is delivered monthly to your door.
     
    Concerned with the plight of our planet, Lysander decided to start a business that offers a more sustainable choice to consumers. I was lucky enough to try one of the beauty boxes and had some lovely natural soaps, a biodegradable sponge, natural coconut oil make-up remover and some natural deodorant.
     
    I think it’s amazing that Lysander has taken something he’s really concerned about and turned it into a business at the tender age of 16. In this episode we talk a lot about why he’s done it, his concerns for the future, the school system and sustainability and how he naively thought that starting a business would be easy.
     
    He chooses what products go into his subscription boxes extremely carefully and if you’re at all interested in giving one a go then please do check out leosbox.co.uk

    Ben Bidwell: Let's talk about sex, baby!

    Ben Bidwell: Let's talk about sex, baby!

    In today’s episode I’m talking to Ben Bidwell. You may know Ben as @thenakedprofessor, and you may not know his face at, just his naked bum! The clue is in the name, Ben really does pose naked in his Instagram photos and as you’ll find out in this episode there is sound reasoning as to why he does this.
     
    I heard Ben on another podcast and something he said really stuck out for me and I contacted him right away to ask if he’d like to discuss it further on STATE OF MIND. He said that the last piece in his healing journey was resolving the issue he has around sex.
     
    This really resonated with me and in our discussion on this episode I found that my eyes were being opened to the fact that sex isn’t always easy for men. For so long I’ve just thought that it’s us women that have the hang ups, the reservations, the lack of self-confidence but my eyes were truly opened talking to Ben and I’m very grateful to him for that.
     
    For more details on Ben and to learn about his life coaching practice go find him on instagram @thenakedprofessor As ever, if you enjoy this episode I would be beyond grateful if you could help me to spread the word about state of mind by sharing the episode to your instagram stories and subscribing to the podcast via the Apple Podcasts App.

    The White Death (sugar) with Nutritionist Liv Kaplan

    The White Death (sugar) with Nutritionist Liv Kaplan

    Liv Kaplan is a Sydney based Nutritionist and foodie with a huge passion for baking. In this episode Liv explains why she lives a low sugar lifestyle and the surprising effects it can have on our mood and our happiness levels, in fact, her journey to health began when she noticed a difference in her incidence of depression when she switched up her diet. We also discuss why Liv doesn't agree with the typical definition of depression...
    The topic of mood, depression and anxiety is one that we touch on a lot in this episode. So many people are suffering with anxiety these days and it can often be linked to poor blood sugar regulation and not having the correct nutrients to fuel our brains properly - namely omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, something that's hard to come by on a vegan diet or an omnivorous diet lacking in nutrients. 
     
    As ever, if you enjoy this episode I would be beyond grateful if you could help me to spread the word about STATE OF MIND by sharing the episode to your Instagram stories and writing me a rave review on the apple podcasts app.

    Ftoxins: Why our cosmetics are killing us with Ariane Chui

    Ftoxins: Why our cosmetics are killing us with Ariane Chui

    Today I’m talking to the wonderful Ariane from Ftoxins, a polite abbreviation for something we should all be doing - putting our middle fingers up at the sources of toxicity in our lives.
     
    One of these main sources is in our cosmetic products, and that’s what Ariane and her sister Delphine focus on with their blog and Instagram page, but they are also incredibly knowledgeable about the dangers surrounding EMFs (as emitted by our electronic devices), air quality, supplements and materials we commonly use in our kitchens like aluminium and plastic.
     
    The girls provide safer swaps for their followers which is, I think, why they are so successful at what they do. They aren’t just explaining what the chemicals in your kitchen cleanser do they’re giving you a healthier alternative that’s priced similarly and easy to use.
     
    I absolutely love the concept behind Ftoxins and in this episode we talk a lot about cosmetics, moisturisers, what you should and can use on your skin safely and why it’s so important not to rub petroleum all over your body!! Yes, most moisturisers are made from petroleum which comes form petrol.
     
    As ever if you enjoy this episode then you can support me and my little podcast by sharing it to your instagram stories and also by leaving a rave review on the apple podcasts app! Thank you in advance…

    Cait Mizzi: The pitfalls of a vegan diet, Game Changers, and why Keto is not a fad

    Cait Mizzi: The pitfalls of a vegan diet, Game Changers, and why Keto is not a fad

    Cait Mizzi CNP is a Certified Nutritional Practitioner and she works functionally, which is a term you may have heard me throw around a lot on this podcast before. Essentially, she works with an evidence-based, yet natural approach to obtaining and maintaining good health. Instead of focusing on a singular system or body part, or even a single approach or cure, Cait will evaluate your complete health history, current lifestyle, emotional state and dietary habits to get to the root cause of your health concerns. As you’ll hear from this episode, Cait is an incredibly knowledgeable practitioner and we do go quite in depth on a number of topics like veganism and the ketogenic diet.
    One thing we do talk a lot about in this episode is vegan diets and the Game Changers film, and if you watched that film and immediately reevaluated the way you eat then I urge you to listen through to the end of this episode because it’s incredibly important.
    As ever, if you enjoy this episode I would be beyond grateful if you could help me to spread the word about state of mind by sharing the episode to your instagram stories and writing me a rave review on the apple podcasts app.

    Tony Riddle: The ECO system, not the EGO system

    Tony Riddle: The ECO system, not the EGO system

    Tony Riddle, or the Natural Lifestylist as he goes by on Instagram, is a man on a mission to re-wild your feet and lifestyle and connect us humans back to our true essence, to empower us to take control of our environments and to get back into nature in a BIG way. At the tail end of last year he ran from Land's End to John O'Groats barefoot, as you do, in a bid to raise awareness for environmental charities - and he certainly achieved that goal. It was also an exercise in showing us all just what the human body is capable of and, probably more so actually, what the mind is capable of.
     
    We talk a lot in this episode about the way in which Tony raises his children, the fact that he doesn’t send them to a conventional school, and we of course talk about his epic run, our mutual love for cold water and a few other insightful anecdotes along the way.

Human, easy to listen too. Very real.. believable, and bringing out a real view/feel from people. Definitely not fake or trying to be anything she is not( in a lovely way)! Fantastic accent too! Informative and warm. Really enjoy listening to Grace.

Intelligent and thought provoking listening!

Love this podcast! Grace is an articulate and intelligent host serving up laid back yet informed chats with subjects who are as interesting as they are varied - makes for easy, if thought provoking listening! My Wednesday mornings would be incomplete with this!
