    Intimacy, Pleasure & Sexual Empowerment with Bibi Brzozka

    Intimacy, Pleasure & Sexual Empowerment with Bibi Brzozka

    How empowered do you feel when it comes to your pleasure?

    In this week’s episode of the #LiveWellBeWell podcast, we’re speaking to Bibi Brzozka.  She’s a VITA certified Love, Sex and Relationship Coach, Holistic Sexuality International Speaker and Energetic Lovemaking Guide. After 15 years in Finance and Banking, she took the leap and embarked on a personal growth journey into sexuality and experienced her first full-body orgasm at age 35.

    We loved this episode as it’s all about empowering ourselves to tap into intimacy, teaching us how to improve our relationships as well as our pleasure - whether solo or partnered.

    This episode as well as Bibi’s courses on her website are focussed on opening your heart and mind on this topic, connecting them to the experiences we have and want to have and also, to our pleasure. It’s also about changing our sometimes skewed mindsets from the social narratives we’re fed and instead, encouraging conversations around these topics which are often seen as “taboo” or “awkward” even when between close friends and partners. Bibi shares advice and tips around recognising and undoing any shame you might feel around this topic – a common issue for a lot of us.

    We discuss conscious sexuality, what it is, how to explore it and also reframe what sex is. We’ll also discuss orgasms, the different types there are, tips to help you achieve full-body orgasms, and the pleasure and intimacy that goes beyond orgasms.

    Do you have self-love practice? Great if you do, but if you don’t, don’t worry as we’ll also discuss how we can create those practices - we’ve got you! It all starts with the self, right?

    Finally, we also learn how we can improve connections with our partners, tips for bringing up what can sometimes feel like awkward conversations with partners, and how to articulate wants and desires to them, as we go through some exercises with Bibi.

    After this episode, you will definitely have tools that will help you to take control and feel empowered when it comes to your pleasure.

    Happy listening!

    The Stress Solution: The Science & Techniques for Coping with Life’s Challenges with Mithu Storoni

    The Stress Solution: The Science & Techniques for Coping with Life’s Challenges with Mithu Storoni

    How stressed are you right now? It’s January so chances are you’ve been stressed about something already. Do you know what your stress triggers are or do you just know when you’ve reached your peak stress levels? Don’t worry, chances are you’re not alone in that.

    We’ve brought back a guest from a previous episode on our series to talk about the s-word.

    Mithu Storoni is an eye surgeon and brain researcher-turned author. She is interested in how the brain responds to uncertainty and performs under pressure. Her first book,  "Stress-Proof", is a science-based guide to optimising brain health and mental resilience and she’s currently working on her second book, ‘Hyperefficient’ due in 2024.

    In this episode we discuss what stress is, how to recognise it in yourself, how to know what your stress triggers are and we also discuss how some people’s personalities are better suited to stress. Regardless if that’s you or not, stress affects each of us differently and we all have different tolerance levels. However, what is common for everyone is that it  can take a toll on our physical and mental health, and we now know it can contribute to the development of chronic health conditions.

    Hopefully after this episode you’ll feel less stressed after learning some tips and advice on how to understand, recognise and manage your own stress.

    Happy New Year! Welcome to the first episode of the #LiveWellBeWell podcast in 2023 and what better way to kick start it than by exploring what financial health looks like?

    What even is financial health? If you are yet to explore this, then this podcast is for you.

    Today, Sarah Ann speaks to Melanie Eusebe MBE, author of ‘Financial Wellness and How to find it.’

    In this episode Melanie shares her journey of how she took control of her finances to set up Money Moves - her programme that allows you to maximise your career success and wealth potential, ultimately giving you financial freedom.

    We discuss what financial wellness is, and how to get it with tips and advice on how to start, which let’s be honest, is probably one of the biggest obstacles for most of us.

    We also discuss reframing mindset around money, budgeting and breaking down shame and guilt around money, and the importance of normalising talking about finances. We explore how to have conversations with your partner around finances, how to set and enforce boundaries around finances and finally, Mel shares resources on how to help you feel empowered around all things money.

    Tune in for practical tips and actionable advice on achieving financial freedom and living your best life in 2023.

Live Well Be Well podcast- 5 stars!!

I love this podcast series because there’s such a diversity of information and personal stories. The language used is easy to follow along with even when talking about complex topics. Each conversation between Sarah Ann and her guests provides factual based information as well as relatable situations around mental health.

The Gift of “The Be Well” Podcast

I have immensely enjoyed listening to the “Be Well Collective” podcast! It is so refreshing to hear a science based conversation surrounding nutrition and mental health. Thank you for starting this collective to help educate young women, like myself, on the importance of health as it pertains to so much more than one’s physical appearance. Now, more than ever, people are interested in nutrition for the long term benefits and for mental health purposes. I have two questions for you that I would love to hear addressed in your upcoming podcasts. 1.) What are your thoughts on “eating for your blood type?” And what does research show about this? It seemed as though Dr. Aseem was going to touch on this, but I think time was of the essence. 2.) Can you expand more on how nutrition affects the chemical processes in the brain to support mental health? In your interview with Kimberly Wilson, you beautifully highlighted how the brain is an organ which is responsible for all of the chemical processes in your body. This basic truth has been a monumental turning point for me in the way I view nutrition because in order for our brain to function properly we must nourish it with the right foods. Can you expand more on the chemical processes in the brain as it relates to nutrition and how nutrition aids in neurotransmitters, serotonin transfers, etc? As someone you manages my own mental heath issues I think it is so important to combat it from all angles, especially nutrition. Thank you so much for creating such a lovely podcast that is incredibly relevant in these times. Sincerely, Lily (Dallas, TX)
