    10: Fun

    10: Fun

    We tried not to unleash our inner Cyndi Lauper on you and blast out Girls Just Want to Have fun at full volume on this podcast but this week, we are all about the fun…
    Remember a carefree, fun and more courageous you?
    All too often we get caught up with the kids, house, job, chores, parents, dog and life - and we forget to have fun.
    We get all responsible and sensible AND stuck in a rut and we often lose that sense of fun we had when we were younger!
    This week we talk about why that happens and more importantly, how can you inject more fun (and joy) into your life every day…

    9: Battling the Body Image Battering

    9: Battling the Body Image Battering

    By the time we get to the prime of life at mid-age, we've more than likely been battling body image for decades.  It's hard to feel comfortable in our own skin, when some faraway fashionista is dictating what size our skin should be.  We forget that our bodies are an ever evolving, changing creation. In this episode we talk big buts, wine bellies and fashion freedom and why embracing our bodies is the best accessory we can wear.

    8: Conversations in a time of, but not about, Covid-19

    8: Conversations in a time of, but not about, Covid-19

    We were torn between not adding to the onslaught of Covid-conversations that are pelting us from the airwaves and social media, but not ignoring the socially-distanced elephant in the room. 
    We opted for a well washed hand-wringing in the middle. 
    In this episode we discuss the ways in which we can stay sane as well as safe during these strangest of times.

    7: Learning to Get Comfortable with Discomfort

    7: Learning to Get Comfortable with Discomfort

    While this podcast was recorded just prior to the current (very uncomfortable, for most) Covid challenges, it couldn't be more relevant.  Most of us are all now feeling discomfort on many levels, and there just may not be enough wine left in the house to deal with them. Thankfully, we have a better (and healthier) option than sucking the dregs of the cooking Sherry bottle. 
    We think that uncomfortable feelings are something we should avoid, ignore or gloss over, when in fact if we learn to acknowledge them, accept them and even try to understand them, we are far more likely to deal with them effectively. 
    Discomfort is an emotion, and often we feel that we are our emotions. In this episode, we tell you why this isn't true at all, and we give you practical advice and tips on how to become comfortable with discomfort, so that you can spend more time getting comfortable with the things we really want to enjoy in life.  Cooking Sherry optional.

    6: What to do when it all goes to s**t

    6: What to do when it all goes to s**t

    As if any of us need reminding right now that for all the best laid plans in the world, life can throw you a curve ball. 
    In this podcast, we explore how to handle situations that didn't go according to plan, and explain useful techniques to help you catch those curveballs, rather than stand frozen in fear as it hurtles towards you, knocking you to the ground.

    5: International Women's Day

    5: International Women's Day

    We think every day should be a day to celebrate women, but this Sunday, the whole world joins in to recognise what still needs to be done to achieve gender equality, but also to recognise women's wonderfulness.
    This episode is a personal perusal of some of the women who have inspired us, role-modelled for us and reminded us that bravery and courage is part of our female DNA.
