Being human w/ Natalie Lee @stylemesunday
Natalie Lee’s blog (Style Me Sunday) and Instagram profile read like a journal. She shares her daily thoughts, her looks, and her concerns, all with honesty, self-reflection, and humour. Natalie is an inspiring and uplifting reminder that the way we speak to ourselves affects how we feel. In this episode, she shares how she reframed how she thought about her post-birth body and how she uses social media as a powerful source of inspiration by curating her feed. Natalie is a wonderful example of how empowering motherhood can be. By trying to be a good role model and teaching her children to love themselves and to listen to their feelings, she has learned to appreciate herself and to remind herself of everything she achieves on a daily basis, however big or small.

Being human w/ Andy Torres @stylescrapbook
Andy Torres (from the blog Style Scrapbook) has spent the past 10+ years building a successful career in fashion by using the power of the internet. She was one of the first successful bloggers and now has a large and steady Instagram following. Andy has managed to remain successful in an ever-evolving industry thanks to a multitude of qualities including resilience and authenticity, but the ones that stand out most in this episode are her ability to think positively, listen to her body and stay true to her values. A few years ago, Andy had what felt like asthma on a business trip – it turned out to be anxiety. Andy was shocked, but instead of pushing it aside as an inconvenience, she used it as an opportunity to stop and consider which parts of her job fit into her long-term goals. This ability to work and act mindfully, combined with visualisations and daily affirmations, helps Andy to resist FOMO and to stay true to what she really wants from life. You can find Andy on her blog at www.stlyescrapbook.com and on Instagram at @stylescrapbook. NOTE: This episode is recorded over the phone but it’s worth it!

Being Human Trailer
Tune in Feb 14th Social media can be an incredible way to connect with people like us and to share important messages. However, it can also make us feel deeply inadequate and like we’re missing out. Many of us follow Instagram influencers for a daily dose of inspiration, but inspiration can sometimes turn into comparison. Next thing we know, we are left wondering why we’re lying on the couch while the rest of Instagram seems glammed up for some event we’re not invited to. Throughout the five episodes in this season, we will speak to some wonderful women who have built successful careers on Instagram. They will share their journeys behind the Instagram grid, tell us what they do to look after their mental health and how they have dealt with all kinds of things including worrying, FOMO, loneliness, body image, and impostor syndrome. Listen as we hear what life is like behind the Instagram grid and get great tips on how to deal with many aspects of our mental health.
