This is part 2 of a mini-series I thought I would run all about 'how she did it'. Because it is easy to chat about all things health, for me to give you tips and changes but HOW do you begin? what is it like and what do you eat instead? So today we are getting to the nitty gritty of how my sister made a huge transition over a year ago to help support her body to heal.
So whether you're thinking of trying out eliminating some foods for health purposes or maybe just trying to implement another habit (like sleeping more, drinking more water, talking nicely to yourself) then this will give you some insight into what LIFESTYLE shifts actually look like...

This week I am talking about something that I have found to be incredibly helpful for my health but also SO HARD to implement. Meditation was something I implemented after reading so much about the benefits and learning that my adrenals were 'shot' and I needed to support my nervous system. But it has taken me time to get to grips with it.
In this episode, I share with you the in and out's to meditation. It is also a super PRACTICAL no-nonsense approach. And trust me, your body, your hormones, your digestion, your skin and your energy will thank you for implementing this practice.
I also included a FREE 3 min meditation at the end of the podcast to be a little sample!
I thought I would kick off a mini-series asking 'how she did it'.
And this week we are talking about WEIGHT LOSS. How did this week's awesome guest drop a ton of weight (we don't actually know how much as she never weighed herself but see the pictures below) without even focusing that much on it? Without daily weigh-ins, scales, counting calories or feeling crap?

There are a couple of things that I do every day that make a BIG difference to my energy, well being and sense of JOY. They are all pretty simple, not particularly time-consuming but I really notice the difference and decline when I get out of the habit.
So this week on the podcast I am sharing with you my morning routines (pre-baby of course!!), how I sleep, what I make sure I eat and a few other secret weapons that help my body to be strong and resilient. All of them are actionable and easy for you to implement so I highly recommend taking on board ONE THING to help you feel your best.

This is something I see A LOT in women. They feel crap. Exhausted, depressed, cold and just not quite right. They get some blood test done at the Dr's and it all comes back 'normal'. They think it is maybe in their heads, or they get told it is because they're getting older, have kids or are actually depressed.
But for so many women it can be that their third is not working optimally and the test most commonly done does not provide a thorough picture of thyroid function at all.
So in this episode, I equip you to be your own thyroid NINJA! So that you or friends or family members of your don't have to suffer the average 8-9 years of suffering before they get the diagnosis they need (!!!!).
