088 Weave Your Own Wellbeing Parachute
Welcome to the final epsiode of the Switch Off Sessions on The Good Life Well Lived podcast. In this episode we are going to pull together everything that we have learned throughout the series and use it to weave our own bespoke wellbeing parachute. Jon Kabat Zinn refers to 'weaving your parachute' in terms of mindfulness. By which he means, create the habit of a daily practice so that it is there to support you when you need it i.e. when you jump out of the airplane. In this episode I take the analogy further and encourage us all to create our own wellbeing plan to support us in all aspects of life so that we are best able to support ourselves in difficult times.

087 The Power of Being Kind to Ourselves
Welcome to the ninth Switch Off Session on The Good Life Well Lived podcast. In this episode, I talk about the power of showing ourselves kindness and self-compassion to help quieten our busy mind. Often we would not talk to our worst enemy the way that way talk to ourselves. Our constant internal narrative makes it difficult to switch off and give ourselves some breathing space. In this episode I share tips to help you give yourself a break and switch off that voice in your head.

086 Relaxation Techniques That Match Your Personality Preferences
Welcome to the eighth of the Switch Off Sessions on The Good Life Well Lived podcast. In this episode we are going to explore how you can identify relaxation techniques based on your own Myers Briggs Personality Preferences. For a lot of people, traditional relaxation techniques don't work and can often have the opposite effect. I share an anecdote about a friend who repeatedly went on spa days and would leave feeling more stressed than she started. By understanding our personality preferences (e.g. if you are an extrovert and get your energy from other people then don't expect to feel refreshed after a day of solitude) we can best create situations and experiences that we will find truly relaxing.

084 Switch Off From Your Mobile Phone
Welcome to the sixth of our Switch Off Sessions on The Good Life Well Lived Podcast. I call our mobile phone the modern day pocket knife, incredibly useful but potentially dangerous in the wrong hands! In this episode we are talking about how we can learn to switch off from our mobile phones. I don't believe that it is helpful to or indeed necessary to switch off from our phones entirely but I do believe that we can use them in a more intentional and mindful way so that they add value rather than take over our life.
