045 - Dr Jane Foster - What Does It Mean To "Take Emotional Responsibility Now"?

In this interview, we talk to Dr Jane Foster, educator and creator of MYTERN - a program designed to help people change their language around emotion and regain control! TERN = Take Emotional Responsibility Now. As an educator, she was concerned about the false narratives that were, and still are, embedded in our culture, disrupting people's lives and even ending them. She wanted to create a simple, every day language that could be used by everyone to build new positive narratives, eradicating stigma and judgement, enabling people to regain control of their mental and emotional state. A language that could replace blame, judgement and retaliation with empathy, compassion and responsibility. The culture of having to be happy and positive all the time is unrealistic and almost impossible to maintain - especially now. In this interview, Dr Foster talks about- her PhD project where she sent one text message per day to university students over a ten week period. She had astonishingly pos...

043 - Inemesit Graham - What does the #BlackLivesMatter movement have to do with diastasis, body image and women's health?

In this interview, we talk to Inemesit Graham, fitness professional (and all-round incredible woman!) based in Yellowknife, Canada.
