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

Hi there, Today let’s have a candid chat about forgiveness & fear. Let’s explore how these emotions affect us. And what they bring to our lives… After all, we are social animals and part of a global flock. Putting all our values, attitudes, and beliefs to one side for a moment…I ask you ‘what unites us?’
What unites us as all people? Would your answer be ‘forgiveness’? I know mine is.

If you had the megaphone to the world and you could say anything at all, what would you say to change the world? Waleed Aly(Australian much loved new presenter) said last night:

‘Instead of sending hatred viral, let’s send forgiveness viral.’

What do you think?

Get yourself a cup of tea and let’s have a friendly chat.

Topics touched upon:

veganism

bullying

racism

fear

Episode 106 Compassion – Does action speak louder than words?

13701000_10201823057295708_933247369637769995_o

Hi there. It’s Lauren here and I’m seated at my favourite comfy chair, cup of tea in hand. Today we discuss compassion. Just as there is no love without compassion so there is no compassion without practicing  kindness…every single day.

What do you think? Do you agree or do you feel differently? Are our very feelings of compassion definitively compassionate if there is no ensuring compassionate action? Is the feeling of compassion enough in itself?…or is more required? And what is the purpose fo feelings if we are not going to act on the virtuous ones? Let’s explore compassion over a cup of tea.

xx Lauren ( the whispering mother)
