Join Kathryn as she takes a deeper look at some of the aspects of wellbeing that we often neglect and asks the ultimate question; will our lives really improve if we paid more attention to our mental health? Each week Kathryn will be joined by a wellbeing specialist to unpick the value of sleep, nutrition, kindness and so much more.

Episode One

Trigger Warning: this recording mentions the terms obse/obsity, eating disorders/disordered eating, weight and BMI. The word ‘fat’ is used as a neutral descriptor and very much in the spirit of fat positivity and fat acceptance.

We're here with Season 2! Kicking it off we spoke to Jessica Cadbury who is a Certified Intuitive Eating Counsellor & HAES Nutritional Therapist. She gave us the rundown on how harmful diets really are, what it means to be healthy at every size, and how inaccurate the BMI scale really is. Not to be missed!

Episode Two

Trigger Warning: this episode discusses death and dying

The topic we try to avoid more than most; our demise. Why do we find it so difficult to discuss? In this episode, we chat with Sue Rabbich, a Soul Midwife and Death Cafe facilitator, who shares her uplifting views on this uncomfortable subject. Is there a way to reframe death so we can learn to make peace with it?

Episode Three

What do you do when you get the most devastating news of your life? Do you give up? Do you fight? Or do you turn to an ancient Roman philosophy for guidance? Amy Tindale was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in her 30s and found that the teachings of the Stoic philosophy were the perfect antidote to her toughest days. In this episode, Amy discusses her diagnosis and how she chose to take a more holistic approach to cancer recovery that ultimately helped save her life.

We chatted with Australian psychologist, coach and author Laura Louise Love about what it really means to have values. How can we allow our values to influence our life?
