    Unplugging from Social Media for Dry July

    Unplugging from Social Media for Dry July

    When Brooke McAlary's latest book, CARE: The Radical Art of Taking Time - landed at my local post office, I was honestly overjoyed.


     


    But little did I know the impact this beautifully designed book would have on my social media addiction.


     


    Running a start-up online business and webinars “requires” you to be online. Yet there's a fine line between focused social media scheduling, 'networking' and procrastiscrolling. The latter infiltrated my daily rhythm more than I cared to admit.


     


    In recent weeks, my screen time was about 5 hours a day and I was horrified when I saw this data. That’s the equivalent of a part-time job.


     


    This made me stop and think:


     


    💭 Why am I using socials so much? 


    💭 What need is it serving? 


    💭 What could I be doing instead?" 


     


    And I've chosen to do a digital detox for Dry July.


     


    In previous experiments, I’ve replaced the social media check with incessant email checking.


     


    So this time I’m trying a two-stage process to encourage a steep reduction in screen time, which is discussed in more detail in this episode.


     


    1)  A week before the detox, delete all apps from the phone and only use desktop to check once or twice a day


     


    2) Set strict limits when checking the platforms


     


    3) View the digital detox as an experiment and have self-compassion

    Living in Alignment with your Energy with Ilana Kosakiewicz

    Living in Alignment with your Energy with Ilana Kosakiewicz

    Ilana Kosakiewicz one of Australia’s leading kinesiologists, energy coaches, and yoga and meditation teachers.


     


    She is a wholefood lover, entrepreneur with a past life spent working in the corporate world as a CPA accountant.


     


    Ilana’s own health journey with chronic fatigue and auto-immune disease taught her that slowing down, finding moments of stillness, living in the now and listening to your body’s inner wisdom and intuition are not just important – they are essential.


     


    Ilana is passionate about teaching women to live in alignment with their innate cyclical energy, menstrual cycle and the moon.


     


    She helps women shift their energy and take back their inner power and self-care rights by making themselves the number one priority. 


     


    Ilana also works with children (& some men) to assist in shifting their essence, energy and zest so they can live authentic, content and happy lives.


     


    Originally from Gippsland Australia, Ilana now lives in Bayside Melbourne and spends her days with her clients, teaching yoga and meditation, writing, dancing, cooking in her kitchen and spending as much time at the beach as she can.


     


    In this episode we discuss:


    How a health crisis sparked a transformation in Ilana's career

    Why energy is so important and how kinesiology helps you live in alignment with your energy

    How connecting with the hormonal cycle changed Ilana's life

    Things that can help women live in alignment with their energy

    The Impact of Stress

    The Impact of Stress

    In this episode we share few fundamentals we teach in the BREATHE Program:


    We are all bio-individual – one woman’s pleasure is another’s poison.

    The energy we give to nourishing things ‘off the plate’ override what we’re actually eating:
    Relationships

    Career

    Spirituality

    Physical Exercise





    We can’t avoid stress altogether.


    But we can incorporate daily practices into our lives that will not only help to cope with our current stress levels, but also prevent long-term effects on our health and wellbeing, such as:


    Eating clean wholefoods

    Getting adequate sleep

    Reducing the intake of ultra-processed foods and caffeine

    Leaning into the yin of self-care


    If you would like to unpack ways to support yourself through self-care activities, we’ve included in the show notes a tool we walk our clients through in the BREATHE Program.


     


    It’s called “The Yin and Yang of Self-Compassion” and helps you map actions you can take to nurture masculine and feminine aspects of yourself in times of stress.


     


    It's a free download, no need to add your email address, just hit the button and enjoy understanding this method of self-care at a deeper level.

    Prioritising Yourself Without Feeling Guilty with Jen Parker

    Prioritising Yourself Without Feeling Guilty with Jen Parker

    Jen Parker is an empowerment life coach who helps big-hearted women prioritise time for themselves without compromising what’s important or sounding like a nag.


     


    In a previous career life, Jen was a social worker who had to deal with tough and emotionally draining situations. This caused her to compromise her own self-care, and learn the importance of knowing her values and living in alignment with them.


     


    In this episode, we dive deep into:


    Jen's journey from social worker to empowerment life coach,

    Common mindset myths when it comes to self-care,

    Ways empathic women can say, "No" without feeling guilty, and 

    Tools and strategies that busy women can use to prioritise your own wellbeing.
