  • Episode 13 – The Secret to Getting Real Happy with Ange Simson

    · The Wellness Collective Radio Show

    Two nights ago I posted this on Instagram... "We travel because we need to, because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity.  When we get home, home is still the same, but something in our minds has changed, and that changes everything" How true this is for me a least, especially!  But why is it, we can wait so long to do something that helps fill us up?  Today's episode is all about getting happy.  It's not necessarily about taking a holiday either, but our guest, the ever gorgeous Angela Simson from The Gratitude Project totally has some amazing pointers that are going to help take you closer to that inner happiness.  As you'll learn, it's not at all about the grand gesture but about the little things that add up to a lot! This is a favourite episode of mine.     Listen right here by hitting the play button or on demand or via iTunes and PLEASE don't forget to rate this podcast!  We are so GRATEFUL (hehe) that you keep the love alive with the five stars ;) Here's where it's all at; 4:06 - Grateful, grateful, grateful... is it a new concept, does it really change the way you live your life? 5:30 - Why we are experiencing all time anxiety and overwhelm. 7:00 - The awakening - what makes us ready to change. 9:58 - The power of manifestation - if we don't know what we want or we want life to be like, if we don't think of these things, how can we never make them happen... 10:39 - The 'gentle smack-down' - do we need one? 14:33 - How Ange told us we were ridiculous to suggest there was a magic bullet BUT profound words with  5 very simple questions to bring self awareness. 15:51 - Grief.  We are lost as a society and a bit stuck when it comes to dealing with it.  Often it is at the core of our health and mind issues. 16:33 - How grief actually physically manifests and how we can better embody it. 18:30 - Self love - what we do.  Looking into the 8 x 8 x 8 rule and making time for ourselves. 21:30 - How everybody benefits from your own self care. 24:00 - Self care isn't necessarily a grand event, it could be having a shower!  It's about focusing on our own needs.

  • Episode 12 – Babies, Post Natal Depression & What Comes Next… with Terri Psiakis

    · The Wellness Collective Radio Show

    There's nothing funny about Post Natal Depression and for comedian Terri Psiakis this reality became an internal nightmare - on the outside everything was peachy, but as you'll learn in this podcast today, inside her world was quickly crashing down.  Like many new mothers may experience, Post Natal Depression (PND) pulls women apart and for Terri, she explains how her post natal depression was "ball-tearing" (we giggle), certainly not the introduction to motherhood she had planned or hoped for; doubled with a diagnosis of Post Natal Traumatic Stress (PNTS).  Ouch. But we do not need to experience such pain alone, which is why we've opened the mic to Terri today.  Not only is Terri a comedian, she is a writer, a performer, a broadcaster a mum and her newest 'baby,' Hello Baby where she provides her expertise as infant massage instructor and she's got some amazing insights as to the why and how of PND & PNTS.... and how massage helped her recover.  You're going to need to press play below OR listen via iTunes, because this is one episode for every woman, expecting or not!   In this episode you’ll learn; Straight up - we announce the lucky person who is taking home 1 year of treatments at my clinic as we draw the birthday giveaway!  “Marty Farty Party” if you could please email us - wendy@natkringoudis.com.au.  That's not even a joke. + Terri shares her Post Natal Depression (PND) diagnosis and she talks about in the course of her recovery she investigated Infant Massage and how it helps mothers bond to their babies. + How her sense of humour helped her even when things were at their worst. + We talk about managing expectations and how important it is to know when things aren’t ‘normal’ not just post-partum but at anytime. + The reason why the birth experience may contribute to PND + How in fear, there is a primal drive that kicks in.  It can affect the labour - which isn’t necessarily considered in the modern birthing model. + How Terri’s second birth was considerably different and how she took control - by making each step ‘ok’ with her. + How sleep effects EVERYTHING - not only how you function but relationships, how you see yourself in the world… + In the moment of birth a woman is the most vulnerable and the most powerful she will ever be.  It is an extremely sensitive time and validating birth is essential. + How essential the birth ‘debrief’ is. + There are mechanisms in place to set you up to be looked after in an instant and we should never be too proud to ask for help. We'd love to open up the conversation below - if you have any questions or comments, please let's get talking we'd love to hear from you.

  • Episode 11 – Getting Your Period Back When It’s Been AWOL – With Claire Baker

    · The Wellness Collective Radio Show

    Periods.  There, we said it.  Cecelia's most unfavorite topic - we're going there in this episode.  She admits, she doesn't really like talking about it (at all which makes for a very interesting podcast!).  As personal as the topic is, we either have one or we are waiting for one (or it's gone awol) and for a lot of women, periods aren't something you've necessarily been able to take for granted. Since IT'S OUR BIRTHDAY (I can hear you singing in your best voice.. "Happy Birthday To You!") we've dedicated this month to our most talked about topic, periods, PCOS and hormones!  Something for everybody. Listen on demand via iTunes or clock on the bar below. In this special episode with the ever gorgeous Claire Baker - an inspirational woman on a mission to help educate us all about how we can love our menstrual cycle that little bit more.  Her own experience of not having a period, etched out her path to where she is today - inspiring and educating women to 'adoring their cycle.'  In this episode we dig into the nitty gritty of menstruation, PCOS and more.  Here's the low down; 6:12 Claire shares of her experiencing of coming of the pill and nothing happening - periods didn't return and Claire waited and waited... it took an entire year of so much learning for her body to begin cycling again. 7:00 The Period Party Podcast with my gal Nicole Jardim - how we get caught out without 'supplies' during the period time - nobody is exempt! 7:47 As part of The Wellness Collective (exclusive) Radio Show, we talk to Fiona McCulloch about how long it should take for the period to return.  To access this and learn about the Membership here.  It's important to learn why it can take such a long time to make a comeback. 8:44 How Claire was terrified that she had 'screwed' up her body and that her body had maybe forgotten how to ovulate and cycle and how the personal work she did in this time counted most. 11:05 "A lot of young women bypass the early stages of PCOS (as in they don't show symptoms even though they have it) when they are very active as teenagers."  This is a common issue with miss diagnosis with PCOS. 12:00 The emotions were a huge deal for Claire to deal with during the time where she didn't have a period.  All the while how her health was on the up which keep her knowing things were 'ok.' 13:20 If the pill may be directly related to skin issues.  We discuss. 15:00 How teenagers may be envious of others on the pill - education needed!!  Why I wanted to be on the pill when I was younger because my periods were so terrible and my KFC addiction. (confession time!) 18:00 Did you know - the pill hasn't actually changed in decades, unlike many other medical advances. 19:27 I told Claire that Cecelia didn't want to talk about periods (hehe I'm nasty aren't I!?).
