So you need a little Pep Talk on... Health & Wellness
This quick Pep Talk is perfect to give you the boost you need on looking after your health and wellbeing, from physical health, nutrition and exercise, to mental health, stress and sleep.
But best of all, it's all about balance - listening to your body and your self and finding the best version of wellness for you personally.
As well as a few tips from me, this episode features a top notch chat with Sarah Percy, a registered dietitian who runs TEA retreats (Think, Eat, Act) to provide holistic health services. Sarah is a wealth of information and tips on this topic, and Ilove how balanced and realistic she is - it's so refreshing.
You can find out more about Sarah and how you can work with her at https://tea-retreats.co.nz and also on Instagram where she shares lots of good tips @sarah.percy.9. Don't forget to follow Pep Talk too while you're there - @peptalkwithgrace!
So you need a little Pep Talk on... Finding Your Why
For my latest Pep Talk, I've joined forces with Xero to take a deep dive into a topic that's a bit of a reoccurring theme on Pep Talk – finding and knowing your “why”.
This applies in all areas of life, but especially in business. As we know, business can be satisfying, rewarding and fun, but it can also be hard! When we get bogged down in the day-to-day grind and admin and long hours, it can be hard to remember why we started in the first place.
Today's new episode digs into what gets in the way of our “why”, and some tips on how to get back to it. Plus I've snuck in a really fun chat with Stacia, who founded LilyBee Wrap, all about how and why she started her business over 5 years ago, and some of the challenges she's faced along the way.
Make sure you head to Xero's Why We're In It Hub, which has a huge wealth of FREE information and resources to help business owners reconnect with their why.
So you need a little Pep Talk on... Hobbies
This time on Pep Talk we're talking all things hobbies and finding time for a little joy. Science tells us that having activities in your life that you enjoy doing for fun is a really important element of mental health and good emotional well-being. But in reality, it's really hard to actually do these things. Just surviving as an adult (especially right now!) is really hard! It's hard to imagine also living a fulfilled and happy life around that sometimes.
So even though we know this is something we'd like to do more of, and maybe have found the time to make it happen, it can be hard to know what to do or how to find the time. This quick 20 minute pod has some tips and ideas on fitting a little more fun into life and exploring hobbies, and also an awesome chat with Lauren Keenan who wrote 'The 52 Week Project', where she tried 52 new activities every week for a year to help get her our of the downward spiral of suck. Who better to shed some light on this for us?!
So you need a little Pep Talk on... Body Image
For episode 2, we're exploring the weird old world of Body Image. It's a goodie!
This quick 20min pod is packed full of the background to my body acceptance journey (warning I may get a little emo!), and a bunch of practical techniques I've learned along the way in my journey with body image.
I've also snuck in some experience and tips from radio DJ on The Edge and one of my body acceptance role models, Meg Mansell.
Give me 20mins of your day and in return I'll give you some insight and practical tips so you don't waste another second of your wild and precious life worrying about the shape and size of your body. Let's do this!
So you need a little Pep Talk on... Imposter Syndrome
Welcome to Season 2 of Pep Talk, where we're going back to the dictionary definition of Pep Talk – a short speech intended to encourage someone to feel more courageous, enthusiastic and positive. Each time we dive into a new area of life, business or career – something that we could all do with a little Pep Talk on.
For episode 1, we're diving into Imposter Syndrome with expert guest Jess Stuart. Since that's the number one thing that stops most people trying something new, it feels like a timely place to start!
