    Sophie Dillman: Living with endometriosis

    Sophie Dillman: Living with endometriosis

    When we recorded this podcast, our guest Sophie Dillman was holding a hot water bottle to her stomach. The Home and Away actress is one of approximately 176 million women around the world who have endometriosis.


    This condition occurs where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus is found in other parts of the body, most often in the pelvis, and it can affect the reproductive organs. Symptoms can include bloating, bleeding, tiredness and pain around periods, during sex and going to the bathroom. Some women have no symptoms at all; others struggle all the time. Many suffer in silence, because of the misunderstanding, misdiagnosis and lack of awareness around this complex condition that affects one in 10 women.


    That’s why Sophie became an ambassador for Endometriosis Australia, to try and help women just like her. We sat down, hot water bottle and all, to talk about her endo journey, the Summer Bay sisterhood and the power of a good workout. 
     
    In our chat, Sophie also covers:
    - Her surprising career before joining Home and Away
    - The strategies that help her manage her endometriosis
    - How she works to cultivate self-love and a positive body image
    - Why she wants us all to talk more about female health

    Caitlin Cady: Can meditation cure perfectionism?

    Caitlin Cady: Can meditation cure perfectionism?

    Caitlin Cady is a recovering perfectionist-turned-meditation teacher, who admits her own obsession with overachieving was making her “more burned out than a roach in Snoop Dogg’s ashtray”. Yeah, she might live in Byron Bay but she’s not your usual meditation teacher. For one, she loves hip hop as much as she does Tibetan singing bowls. She also owns a bar in Byron and a street mag, and the reason we’re speaking to her today, she has a new book, Heavily Meditated: Your Down-to-Earth Guide To Learning Meditation and Getting High on Life (Hardie Grant, $29.99) out now, where she proves “Meditation doesn’t have to be boring as s**t or narrated by an annoying looooong draaaaawn ouuuuut meditation voice”. And she’s done all this while raising three kids under the age of six. “It’s a straight up circus at my house!” she tells us.


    So how does she do it all without letting her perfectionist and overachieving sides take over? Well, you’ll have to listen to the episode to find out.


    In this chat, Caitlin covers:
    ·     How living imperfectly leads to a much cooler life
    ·     Why “change happens when you get fed up with your own b******t”
    ·     How she healed herself after suffering from eating disorders, depression and Lyme disease
    ·     A simple breathing meditation you can try
    ·     How to get into a flow state


    Great sources she mentions in the chat:
    ·     Insight timer for guided meditations and timers
    ·     Be Focused pomodoro timer to get s**t done
    ·     Caitlin’s website, caitlincady.com, for more meditation resources

Not to mention the author of two books: Can you die of a broken heart? as well as her new one, Pretty Unhealthy: Why our obsession with looking healthy is making us sick, which investigates why, despite our love of all things wellness, our health as a society is declining.


    She’s here to talk about all this and more, including why we need to show our tickers some love.


    Plus:
    ·     The reality of life as a surgeon (you’ll never believe the TV show it’s actually like)
    ·     How to set goals in a healthy way
    ·     Simple strategies for taking care of your heart

    Elsa Pataky: On life, love and the power of exercise

    Elsa Pataky: On life, love and the power of exercise

    Want to feel physically and mentally strong? Learn to genuinely love exercise? And see mistakes as precious learning opportunities, rather than something to fear? We talk about all this and more with our latest guest, actor, mother of three and all-round superwoman slaying in the wellness space, Elsa Pataky. From growing up as an only child in Barcelona, to getting her big acting break on the Spanish version of Beverley Hills 90210, this serious yoga-lover (who also speaks five languages) has always valued freedom and creativity over living life inside a safety net. After moving to Santa Monica to follow her career dreams, she struggled with loneliness and used exercise as a powerful tool to cope with some of her lowest moments. But when she met her now mega-star husband Chris Hemsworth, her dream of living a wild life surrounded by nature was finally realised. And, since swapping the bright lights of Hollywood for the chilled vibes of Byron, she hasn’t looked back. In this episode, the self-confessed fitness junkie chats to us about pretty much everything, including her secret to a happy marriage, the 80/20 rule that guides her health, and why she’ll never feel guilty for smashing three donuts in one go. She also reveals why she believes nourishing your body (rather than dieting and deprivation) the only way forward for a happy life. And how actually embracing failure can lead to life-changing personal growth. As she says in this candid chat: “You need to live every moment, including the ups and downs, and learn from them. The mistakes I’ve made in life got me to where I am today.”

    Summer series: Canna Campbell on manifesting money

    Summer series: Canna Campbell on manifesting money

    For the next few episodes of Uninterrupted we’re harking back to some of our favourite conversations of 2019. Like this chat on manifesting money and slaying debt with Canna Campbell. We’ll be back with new episodes in February. Until then, enjoy this throwback!


    Does the thought of your financial situation make you anxious? It’s not just you. More than half of women under the age of 35 find dealing with money stressful. It’s bad for our bank accounts but worse for our health with Danish researchers finding financial stress can lead to the early onset of poor cognitive function and increased inflammation, which contributes to chronic conditions. 


    Not great, huh?


    That’s why we asked Canna Campbell to be our latest podcast guest for Women’sHealth Uninterrupted. Canna is a financial advisor and the author of a new book Mindful Money (Viking, $34.99). She’s famous for making vids for her YouTube channel, SugarMamma.tv, encouraging women to find financial independence and practise what she calls ‘money mindfulness’.


    In this episode, Canna covers:


    ·     What you can do to manifest money
    ·     How you can make more money with the money you currently have
    ·     Why you don’t need to give up your activewear budget to get control of your finances (it’s called “sanity money”)
    ·     What you can do to get rid of debt
    ·     The link between minimalism, mindful spending and mental health
    ·     How she had to let go of being the “perfect mum” with all the right stuff
    ·     How she built herself back up financially, as a single mum, after her divorce
    ·     Why you don’t need a heap of money to start investing. It’s less than you think!


    For Canna, getting your finances into shape all starts with mindset. It can’t be forced.


    “It's like me saying to you, ‘You’ve got to go on a diet or you've got to run a marathon.’ Unless you are genuinely connected to wanting to run a marathon, it’s going to be the most meaningless, soulless, boring, dull, depressing experience.


    “When you look at your mindset, and look at ‘Why am I doing this? What's important? What are the things I'm going to gain? How's this going to help me?’, that’s when you start feeling really connected, and committed, and motivated, and inspired to make this shift happen.”

    Summer series: Tiffiny Hall on body love

    Summer series: Tiffiny Hall on body love

    For the next few episodes of Uninterrupted we’re harking back to some of our favourite conversations of 2019. Like this chat about body love with February cover star and mega-trainer Tiffiny Hall. We’ll be back with new episodes soon. Until then, enjoy this throwback!


    Author. Mega-trainer. Body image advocate. Tiffiny Hall has been part of the Aussie fitness scene for over a decade. But, as you’ll discover in this raw, emotional and truly inspiring chat, there’s so much more to this ground-breaking powerhouse than just her black belt in Taekwondo. From battling it out on TV show Gladiators to helping people change their lives on The Biggest Loser, the founder of health and fitness program TIFFXO has long been known for her straight-talking, honest and warm approach. But when her first child, Arnold, was born almost two years ago, it led to an unexpected epiphany about the insane pressure society places on women to “bounce back” after pregnancy, and led to the kind of joy and strength she’d only ever dreamed on. Now, she’s on a brand new mission: Helping other women accept and love their bodies (and be a little kinder to themselves) every single day. In this episode, she shares the private health challenge that’s turned her into the fighter she is today. And talks openly about success, self-love, motherhood, motivation and how learning to exercise your “no” muscle could actually change your life.
