Ep 28: How to Develop Self Trust
You are the kind of person who can trust yourself. You are the kind of person who follows through with your plans. How does it feel to say those statements out loud? If you're like me you didn't even realise that your self trust was being broken every time you missed an exercise session or you had in your calendar to complete something and you ignored it. Trusting yourself and your decisions is the key to success in life, because when you trust yourself you are listening to your unconscious, which is always protecting you. Tune into this episode where I talk about the ways that helped me develop Self Trust.

Ep 27: What is your response to perceived threats?
What does your mind do when it perceives danger/threats Vs when there is an actual threat? Did you know that you mind cannot tell the difference between what is real and what is perceived? No matter the situation, whether you are interpreting something as a danger or there is actually one, your mind will still go into a Fight or Flight Response. Our emotions and beliefs will determine how we respond to events and people, and whether we feel safe or threatened. Tune into this episode where I talk about situations where you might perceive a threat based on an internal insecurity. The following episodes are helpful in understanding some of the content I mention: - Episode 19 (out of proportion emotions) - Episode 21 (our values and beliefs) - Episode 23 (comfort zone)

Sabotage occurs anytime you want to achieve something and then your actions, or lack of action, prevent you from being, doing or having what you want in your life.

Ep 20: How the words you use can determine your reality
Our words are a vehicle for expressing and sharing our experiences with others. How you speak to yourself and others directly influences how you experience things in life. If your internal self talk is negative, chances are are that your external experiences will be negative as well. By simply changing the words you habitually use (the words you consistently use to describe emotions) you can immediately change how you think, how you feel and how you live. Make your internal vocabulary more positive, and you might be pleasantly surprised at the positive external experiences you'll discover. Think about your reaction if someone said to you: " I am infuriated with you" vs " I am really annoyed" vs "I am a little peeved at this situation" Notice how they get lower in their intensity. How would you react if someone said the first one vs the last? Do you think you would be a bit calmer and handle the situation differently? I imagine your heart rate would be quite different! By using less emotionally charged words in your conversations to others you can create a whole different outcome. If you want to learn more about changing your language listen to this episode.

Ep 19: Are your emotions controlling you?
Emotions are feelings and our way of knowing that something feels comfortable or uncomfortable for us. Research demonstrates that feelings are caused by chemical reactions in our body and brain. Our feelings are therefore real rather than imagined - paying attention to our emotions is very important! Are you in control of your emotions, or are your emotions controlling you? Do you feel like your emotions are in proportion to most situations? In today's episode, I talk about how your emotions are holding you back, and most importantly, what to do about it! I also give you an activity to assist with understanding your emotions. For any questions send me a DM @insideouthealthwellness or an email [email protected] I hope you enjoy this episode:)

Ep 10: Lessons learnt from not following through with plans
Why do we have the best intentions and then not follow through with our plans? This week I talk about 3 lessons I learnt from not following through with my plan.
