Episode 117 Podcast Being well with Lauren

Resilience, bullying & being happy

Today, we are going to talk about bullying and resilience.

Have you ever been bullied, intimidated, or called bad names?

I know I have. It is just not ok, is it? I know one thing for sure. I know that it is not ok to define yourself based on the opinion, words, or behavior of others. I know this as I allowed my sense of self to be affected by others as a child and it took a long time to work through this. Let’s take back our power and define our own sense of self. Today we are going to explore how to walk the line between resilience and bullying in the journey of life

Go and make yourself a nice cup of tea in your favorite cup and let’s have a lovely chat.

Topics covered
Bullying
Resilience
Parenting
Children’s bullying
letting go of the past

Episode 114 Being well with Lauren The art & practice of noticing happiness

 

Episode 114 Being well with Lauren

The art & practice of noticing happiness

Do you feel happy every day?
Do you notice truly notice where your thoughts are pointing and how your thoughts effect your happiness?

In other words, what you think about reflects how you feel. Today we talk about The ability to quieten your thoughts and to practice the art of noticing what is going on around you and how this directly affects your ability to feel happy.

Go and make yourself a nice cup of tea and let’s have a lovely chat.

Today I read from my book ‘Daily Rituals For Happiness’ available on Amazon

The art of noticing

‘Another important concept, which follows on from ways of seeing, is ‘the art of noticing’. This is about paying attention, observing and witnessing every detail of your life in order that is more fully experienced. I have personally found that the more I practice the art of noticing, the more positive and optimistic my way of seeing has become. Why don’t you take a moment right now to notice what is going on around you? What sights, sounds and aromas can you detect? How does it feel to breathe the air? Pay attention to your breath and notice the exhilarating gift of inhaling and exhaling.

Walk around the area you are in, whether it is your bedroom, the kitchen, your office or the garden. Touch things, feel their texture, and listen to what you can hear. Notice one sense at a time for several moments and then go on to another sense and notice this for several moments too. Listen to sounds, one at a time. Separate out the various aromas and observe them one by one, naming each of them in your mind. Notice how you feel about each sense and try not to let your mind wander or jump forward into the future. As soon as you let your mind leap into the future, you lose this precious moment. You are in charge here. You get to choose where you allow your mind to go. You have the power to keep your mind in the present, in the here and now.
The ability to quieten your thoughts and to practice the art of noticing what is going on around you lies within your mind, and the ability to change and modify your behaviour goes hand in hand with it. Throughout this book, we will complete a number exercises to help you practice the art noticing. For now, I just want you to register that ‘noticing’ is a skill. It is one we can consciously develop and it can help us feel happier.'(Daily Rituals For Happiness’ Lauren Ostrowski Fenton)

Episode 112 Where we choose to look is who we are as individuals, as a community & as a world

 

Podcast Being well with Lauren

Episode 112 Where we choose to look illustrates who we are as individuals, as a community & as a world. Where do you decide to look?

Hello, Lauren here. I am a mum of four incredibly awesome, amazing children including twins. I am a passionate blogger, podcaster, writer, personal trainer, and You Tuber. My podcast is about spiritual, physical, and emotional well-being. Welcome to my podcast Being well with Lauren.
How do you spend your time?
Where do your thoughts wander?
What are you searching for on the internet?

After all, we are where we choose to look, search, think and direct our attention. Our bodies eventually age, but it is our thoughts and our perceptions which give us meaning and make us who we are.

Today I look at the top trending search topics on Google and discuss What this says about us as individuals, as a community, and as a world. In the top, Google searches the trending topics today are Sports, Cosmetics, Social media, terrorism, politics, and celebrities. What we search for reflects not only our core values and who we are …

BUT what we teach our children.

Where are you directing your mind?

How do we spend our lives?
What are we thinking about?
What are we looking for?
What do we search for?

…Because that is who we inherently are. That is the meaning of our lives, and that is what we impart to those around us.

Go and make yourself a nice cup of tea and let’s have a lovely chat. Today the roads are wet, and it is cold; a great day to snuggle up with a cup of tea in the company of a friend.

Topics covered
compassion
Google trending topics
empathy
world peace
cognitive thinking
perception
the meaning of life

Episode 111 If you find yourself saying ‘I want to… ‘but’… STOP the excuses! Just make it happen.

Hello, Lauren here. I am a mum of four amazing children including twins. I am an avid blogger, podcaster, writer, personal trainer, and You Tuber. Welcome to my podcast Being well with Lauren.

Do you find yourself setting goals and not achieving them?
Do you ‘wish’ and ‘want’ to achieve goals?
Do find yourself dreaming about change?
Do you fear what others might say?
Do you find that life is just rushing past?

Let’s get rid of words such as ‘wish’ and ‘want’.
Lets stop giving others control over how we see ourselves.
Let’s stop reacting to the moment and start being in the moment.
And let’s make our goals happen.

Go and make yourself a nice cup of tea and let’s have a lovely chat. Today I have my oils burning( lavender). I am looking out to the street and have a cup of tea in hand. There are amazing patterns in the clouds, the dogs are barking, people are walking, prams are being pushed, the crows are cawing and the day has begun.

Topics covered
parenting
setting goals
journalling
decisions

Episode​ 110 True strength comes NOT from fighting or flighting BUT from sitting in the silence


Episode 110  of podcast Being well with Lauren

True strength comes NOT from fighting or flighting  BUT from sitting in the silence
As a single Mum, age 51, with four kids, life can be challenging. One of the challenges I continue to face is the precarious ever-changing balance between mothering and maintaining my sense of self.

How do you keep a sense of calm in the mayhem of your life?

It is Sunday morning. I have just got back from basketball practice, and I have tried( emphasis on the word tried) to clean the house. I have picked up banana peels and apple cores. I have cleaned out the garage. I have washed dishes, put a wash on, Put washing away, cooked food for the next three days( I hope the food lasts that long)cleaned the kitchen, vacuumed and somehow the house still looks pretty terrible. Yes, my life with four kids life can be quite challenging. One of the issues which keep coming back to test me is how to be a Mum( I love being a Mum) without it becoming my only label. After all, Mothering is one of the labels I wear among of so many labels. I am not one story I am many stories. Sometimes in life parenting can tend to dominate our sense of self and like a tsunami drown out everything else. Thats why It is important to find ways to always maintain a sense of self, but this is easier than it sounds.
How do you so it?
How do you define the balance?
How to plan around the mayhem of life without placing yourself under too much pressure?

And let’s face it Panic just doesn’t help but staying calm in the chaos of life is hard work.

How do you remain calm?
Let’s talk through these questions and more. Go and get your cup of tea and let’s have a friendly chat.

Topics touched on:

  • Living in the mayhem
    Work parenting balance
    Parenting
    Single parenting
    Stress
    Planning
    Journaling
    How to set and achieve goals
    How to manage stress and fear
    How to plan
