    Checking in on our 2022 Goals with Jo Tindling

    On this week’s episode of Transformations with Jayne I am joined by Jo Tindling, podcast manager, as we discuss how our years are going so far. At the end of 2021 Jo and I recorded an episode talking about what we wanted to make happen in 2022, and seeing as how we are at the halfway point of the year I thought it would be a good time to do a bit of a review.
    Join us as we recap where we were at the end of 2021, what our ambitions were for 2022, and how we think we are doing so far in achieving those goals. And check out the 2021 episode here: https://transformationswithjayne.captivate.fm/episode/2021-year-in-review (https://transformationswithjayne.captivate.fm/episode/2021-year-in-review)

    Disaster Preparedness with Beth Yokohara

    Disaster Preparedness with Beth Yokohara

    Note: This episode’s interview was recorded before the earthquake on the 16th of March, and our conversation about disaster preparedness does not talk about this latest big earthquake. I thought that would sound a bit weird for listeners so I spent a few minutes in the beginning of this episode discussing my family’s experience of this latest big earthquake. We were lucky to not experience any major damage or injury, and thank you to everyone who reached out to check and see if we were all ok.
    As we pass the 11th anniversary of the 3-11 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown, it’s a great time of year to refresh your memory of what to do when disaster strikes as well as check your preparations and have discussions with family about what actions you will take. Beth and Jayne have a fun but important discussion about this and how it has helped them to feel less anxious and more in control despite the sheer number of natural disasters that happen in Japan.
    If you enjoyed this episode and it inspired you in some way, we’d love to hear about it and know your biggest takeaway. Take a screenshot of yourself listening to the episode on your device, post it to your Instagram Stories, and tag me and Beth, https://www.instagram.com/transformationswithjayne/?hl=ja (@transformationswithjayne) and http://www.instagram.com/wanavijapan2011/ (@wanavijapan2011) or https://www.speakpipe.com/TransformationswithJayne (send us a message here.)


    In this episode you’ll hear:
    How Beth has transitioned back to living in Australia after 14 years in Japan
    What is WaNavi and why you should know about what they do
    Why preparing for disasters actually helps you to feel more relaxed
    Some of Beth’s top tips for preparing for a natural disaster wherever you are in the world



    About Beth:
    Beth is an Australian who lived in Japan for 14 years. After experiencing the 3.11 Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011 as a first-time mother, Beth attended WaNavi Japan’s first charity Earthquake Preparedness Workshop and was inspired to join WaNavi. Beth has been on the Board of Directors since its establishment in 2011. She has a BA in Psychology and a Dip Ed in Primary Education and has worked in Primary school settings in Australia and Japan. She is currently studying Emergency and Disaster Management at Charles Darwin University and working as Primary Teacher whilst residing in Adelaide, Australia. Beth uses her expertise to work with schools, embassies, community groups, and companies in Japan, providing Earthquake Preparedness, Life-skills and Bilingual Cultural Workshops.

Pheldda ,

Only on episode 8 and Im hooked

Im an American living in Japan. I just started living here and Im feeling a little alone.

This is a great podcast about women, not just in Japan, but all over the world. It will be Japan focused. I feel nice to hear what people are doing.

Super! I'm already taking some of these ideas to heart.
Instead of "waiting for some day", fit smaller or quicker projects into my life.
