Here are some articles, books & podcasts that may be of interest. I am a big believer in learning, it is good for our brains and our mental health. I love listening to podcasts while doing my yard jobs and also in the car.

If You Must Worry, Do It In Paper

Writing down our worries also helps to interrupt the worry cycle, says Sarah Neustadter, Psy.D, a clinical and spiritual psychologist. It helps us see more clearly, and to reconnect to the present moment.’ 

A really interesting article which supports the suggestion of taking regular breaks to be more productive & why scheduling time to worry is a helpful activity.

I contributed to (& I’m featured in) this blog post about how changing your relationship with alcohol can improve your business

 

One of my favourite parts of this article says “a life without a daily routine or structure is so much more draining mentally, physically, and emotionally than you can ever imagine.”

More evidence that good habits create great lives.

During the Corona virus lockdown I spoke to Louise Dando from The Equestrian Pulse Podcast about how to protect your mindset at this difficult time.

Although this is an equestrian podcast the content is relevant to anyone and not just at a time of a lockdown:

 

This book is FANTASTIC! Marie’s style is so inspiring, it’s an easy read and makes you accountable for making things happen. If you want to make a change in your life then this book is for you! A roadmap for making change and dealing with obstacles. I read this book in a few days, I was hooked. This book addresses everyday issues, dealing with haters online for example, she is very authentic and this is a bible for a real life & making the most of ourselves.

There is also great content on her podcast too:

Reading this article Mind coach plans more suicide support events after ‘saving young dad’s life’ gave me the impetus that I needed to train as a Certified Practitioner of NLP.

It outlines how a Mind Coach is helping people suffering from depression (one having attempted suicide) to turn their lives around.

I strongly believe that far too many people are struggling with mental health and in most cases medication isn’t the answer, or at least it doesn’t need to be.

I absolutely love Jay Shetty’s On Purpose podcast.

 

He has great guests and shares so much wisdom in a really relatable way. If you haven’t heard of him yet then where have you been?!
