    Let's Talk About... Stuff

    24:28

    How much stuff do we really need? The answer to that will be different for everyone, but the point here is that there is a massive difference between genuine need versus wants, and much of the stuff we own (or are encouraged to buy) falls into the ‘want’ category… which is fine, until it has negative effects on your life in terms of clutter, financial challenges and even, potentially, hoarding (or just an inability to let go of stuff). How do you deal with stuff in a healthy way? Well, that’s what I’m covering this week in this week’s episode. So, let’s talk about mental health!

    Let's Talk About... Yes

    25:01

    Saying yes to new opportunities, and looking for possibilities rather than problems, is an invitation to yourself to grow. However, bearing in mind that last week I talked about saying ‘no’, it’s important to be thoughtful and considered about what you choose to say ‘yes’ to… and that’s what I’m covering this week in this week’s episode.

    Let's Talk About... No

    25:12

    The word ‘no’ is (in my opinion) the second-greatest word in the English language (and next week I’ll tell you what the greatest is!) because it enables you to set and maintain healthy boundaries… however it can be tough to know how to say it with kindness… and that’s what I’m covering this week in this week’s episode.

    Let's Talk About... Self Doubt

    25:01

    If we let self doubt hold us back from being the best we can be, then we are stealing our own happiness and life satisfaction from ourselves — which is why something must be done to deal with self doubt head on… and that’s what I’m covering this week in this week’s episode.

    Let's Talk About... The Future

    25:35

    Finding the right balance between hope for the future and living for today takes work, and it’s about controlling what you can (i.e. Yourself) and letting go of what you cannot (i.e. Everything else!)… and that’s what I’m exploring in this episode.

    Let's Talk About... Avoidance

    26:02

    Avoidance might seem like a way to escape issues or difficult situations, however it’s rarely effective because problems don’t just go away!

    Let's Talk About... Perfectionism

    28:00

    Perfectionism might seem like a great idea in theory (who doesn’t want to be the best at things and always deliver 100%?) however in practice it’s impossible to achieve, because nothing and nobody is perfect… so that means that perfectionist tendencies can lead to a lot of self-inflicted challenges that can have a negative impact on your wellbeing. This week I’m talking about how to manage perfectionism in a healthy way. So, let’s talk about mental health!
