    Brains

    Brains

    Hello and welcome to the first episode in a series about brains; specifically how amazing they are. How often do you actually think about your brain and all it can do? What's weird if you think about it, this episode is essentially my brain talking about itself. There's much to discover and discuss when it comes to brains but understanding how brains work is fundamental to ensuring we live our best lives possible. I'm not sure exactly how any episodes there are going to be about the brain, but as I gather new research and information, I'll release sporadic episodes. Of course if you have something to add, please contact me. Here's all the links I mention in the podcast; 1) The Female Brain by Louann Brizendine 2) Evolve Your Brain by Dr Joe Dispenza 3) Dr Joe Dispenza website 3) ASMR Videos You Tube 4) Human Navigation Experiment 5) Music Memory Experiment in Berlin 6) UK Car Crash Victim Speaks French 7) Australian Car Crash Victim Speaks Mandarin 8)Jade Talks Poetry 9) Compass by Jade Jackson 10) Jade Talks Travel.

    Jade Talks Loss and Love

    Jade Talks Loss and Love

    Apologies I didn’t post a Jade Talks Stuff podcast episode last month. I lost two friends, who both lived overseas. Jennifer Olsen was 42 (Chicago), and Chris Dawson was 39 (Wellington). This episode explains my biggest fear, how I found out, and the story of Jen and I. I’m in the middle of recording a full Jade Talks Stuff Episode about Orcas, which you can expect within a day or so. Say hi on twitter @jadekinsjackson or head to my website https://jadejackson.com.au To view Jennifer’s memorial website, visit https://jenniferkolsen.wordpress.com If you’d like to support the podcast, then check out this page.

    Alcohol Free

    Alcohol Free

    How is it possible to stop drinking alcohol? Contrary to popular beliefs, it’s entirely possible to live without alcohol. You can celebrate, watch sports, relax, be romantic and even enjoy New Years without an alcoholic drink. How? and more importantly why stop drinking alcohol? In this podcast episode I talk about how I have been almost six years alcohol-free (and counting) and the joys and benefits that has brought to my life. You don’t have to hit rock bottom to remove alcohol, you just have to have a desire to sleep better, enjoy longer weekends, and increased productivity in life. No gimmicks, no tricks and certainly no sales pitches. It’s all in the brain.







    For a list of alcohol free activities, check my blog post here.







    In this episode I mention a video ‘How to change your brain’ by Dr Joe Dispenza.







    You can also find his books here. thanks in advance :-)

    House Fire

    House Fire

    In 2013 my parent’s house burnt down and we lost everything. Even though I was living in New Zealand, before I moved, I stored everything I owned in their attic. So 30+ years of stuff, was now all gone. Despite the initial tragedy, and thankfully all my family was fine; however there was an unexpected positive outcome from it.



    Losing all my stuff meant I came to realise that stuff doesn’t really matter. It doesn’t define us, it doesn’t make us a better person. Sure it was devastating to lose all my travel photos, but I still have the memories, (which I share in my podcast, Travelosophy). In this episode you’ll hear how the events of that day unfolded, what it was like to walk through the rubble, and how things transpired, years later.



    With the recent devastating bushfires in California, it’s a timely reminder that losing stuff isn’t the end of the world, because you can always buy more stuff. As long as people are safe, that’s all that truly matters.



    Thanks for listening! If you know someone who may be interested in this episode, please feel free to share it with them. You can use this link.



    With Christmas coming up, it’s a timely reminder that stuff doesn’t make a better Christmas. If you’d like more ideas, then check out my article on medium about Alternative Christmas Traditions.
