Self-discipline & self-compassion
vor 8 Stunden
35:11if you’ve been following me for a while you probably realized i do not function well in chaos - i thrive in my routines and try to take as best care of my mental and physical health as possible, whether through exercise, therapy, journaling or (yes) cleaning. as such, i’m not surprised it has gotten me the reputation of a very structured and productive (if not obsessive huh) person. so, in today’s episode, i talk all about self-discipline; why it matters and how it’s helping me stay afloat, but even more importantly, how i began to implement it from a place of genuiene self-compassion and self-love - because there’s nothing more fun and encouraging than being your own cheerleader !!! for updates, questions and eveything else, follow @heartfeltpod on instagram!
47:50In this very rambly episode, I dive into the concept of the future - how I used to think (or rather, obsess) about it vs how I do now and what has changed - but also get carried away and discuss all things metaphysical: existential dread, the meaning of life (or lack thereof) and death (and why I find it a comforting thought). So, in short, just your typical heartfelt episode x | for updates, questions and eveything else, follow @heartfeltpod on instagram!

Our relationship with physical exercise ft. Beji !
32:21Ladies n gentlemen, a warm welcome for heartfelt's first guest - my flatmate and best friend, Beji! In this casual episode, we talk about all things physical exercise and its effects on our body image + mental health. We discuss how this relationship evolved over years, our current fitness routines (a fancy way of saying what we do to keep fit), sports we'd love to try and how we're both fixated on learning how to handstand. I hope you'll enjoy it just as much as we did recording this and do let me know if you'd want more guest episodes in the future! xx for updates, questions and eveything else, follow @heartfeltpod on instagram!
How to deal with difficult emotions
43:05The constant cold, the lack of sun and just the overall emotional fatigue... yeah, some could say January has not been easy on me. While acknowledging difficult emotions and letting yourself experience these lows is very important, you also have to beware of indulging in negativity and sadness (as i'm sure all of us have at one point or another - and that's ok!!). And so, i'm coming with the hopes of shining some light on the dark corners of your psyche and helping you gain some (very much needed) perspective on what might've been weighing on your mind lately. sending you lots of love, as always x

IS honesty the best policy?
34:05over the past few months, i’ve truly come to appreciate the value of authenticity, honesty, and the courage to have the difficult conversation - even though it can be so uncomfortable and !! scary !! the truth is, i simply do not have the capacity to deal with bullshit anymore - if something’s on my mind, i may as well say it. it’s upsetting to observe how so many of us would rather let things build up (sometimes to the point of compromising the quality of your relationships) rather than own up to our emotions in an honest and upfront manner. so, since i’ve entered my cough honesty era cough, i decided to devote this episode to discussing the value of authenticity and sincerity and how practicing the two can bring more meaning into your life and close relationships. i hope u v much enjoy it <3 for updates, questions and eveything else, follow @heartfeltpod on instagram!
HoW dO yoU Do iT aLL?
44:50Those who know me know that I do not function well unless given a to-do list and five activities for the day. But being active and engaged - whether in academia, friendships, work, or sports - has usually come naturally to me; I simply cannot sit my ass down and do nothing because I feel like ten other things are demanding my attention at once. On priorities, running high on energy, boundaries and so much more - welcome to this little brain dump. For updates, questions and everything else, follow @heartfeltpod on instagram!
