Confessions of an Overthinking Mind (podcast)

For a few weeks, I've felt a little off. Not bad, just off. An ickiness has settled into my body and I've needed a shift in energy to get rid of it.

Today I wanted to talk about our beliefs and our faith. Capital F, Faith! Now, I am not a religious person. I don't follow the practices of any religion. I have family members who are Christians. I have friends who are Christian. I have had friends who are Muslim and Hindu, too. I do not… Continue reading What Do You Believe In? Beliefs & The Importance of Faith

“Self-help” books I’ve read and enjoyed

These books aren’t all categorised as self-help and I think I agree with Leena Norms on YouTube who said that the genre “self-help” is a little confusing anyway. It’s not really self-help, it’s getting advice and help from someone else!

But for many of us, taking care of ourselves is something we want (hopefully that’s all of us!) but we don’t take it seriously enough.  First things first I'm writing this as a 25-year-old, diagnosed with social… Continue reading How to Take Taking Care of Yourself Seriously

Your Insecurities Aren’t Special (podcast)

We all have insecurities, that much has always been clear; but what if I said we all have the same ones in common, it's just they manifest in different ways? Today I'm rambling and ranting about insecurities, emotional triggers, and our fear that we don't stake up.

Inspired by playing The Sims (lol), I am talking about our basic needs and how they can affect us in life… Continue reading Attending to Your Basic Needs (podcast)
