Feeling energized takes a complete holistic approach. Getting the best nutrition into our bodies is definitely key, however if stress is overwhelming us all the time which is pretty common for many people, especially parents, the associated release of hormones will essentially suppress our ability to absorb all the healing and energizing nutrients from foods that we consume.

So exploring non-nutrition related things that play a role in how we function is very very important although personally I find it can be hard to crack my shell sometimes to open up and start to dive in deep to untangle or let go of the plethora of thoughts and emotions stored inside me. A way to make this process easier I’ve found, can be by using tools like the “cube personality test” developed by a couple of Japanese psychologists called Tadahiko Nagao and Isamu Saito which I run through in this episode. These fun questions are not to be taken seriously and can be interpreted in different ways, but they get you thinking about your deeper self a little more which is key to feeling more energized.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • The fun questions surrounding the “cube personality test”
  • How you perceive yourself and those close to you
  • How different symbols can be used to symbolise personal traits
  • Triggers in your life that may unknowingly be causing you stress
  • A better understanding of your personal relationships

The journey to feeling energized, to get that zest for life like you had in your twenties and to just feel good again is much more than just eating fresh nutrient dense foods. This was the approach I first took as it was a less vulnerable way to get me started on my journey back to Holistic Health rather than diving into deeper issues like my inner voice. But this stuff is huge in so many ways and it doesn’t matter how much healthy food you eat, if you’re stressed because of low self esteem or frustration with life or your relationship, the resulting stress hormones that your body will produce won't allow you to digest food properly, reduce inflammation or heal effectively. It really is so important for us to address issues surrounding how we truly and vulnerably think of ourselves and the thoughts that fill our mind day to day and in this episode of TheEdTalks executive coach and motivational speaker Angus Nelson shares with us ways of becoming a better you.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • A simple method for positively changing what you think about
  • The technique Angus used for turning his life around
  • How you can empower your children with self worth
  • Why filling your mind with positive affirmations may not help you
  • How to deal with negative thoughts
  • How to influence an internal change that will lead to a better version of yourself
  • What may guide you to finding happiness
  • Four common mistakes that people make that wastes internal energy
  • Four tips to feeling energized again

In this episode I’m going to discuss something that has really frustrated me in the past and that is what is the safest and healthiest oils we should be using for cooking. And it’s pretty important to know as it can have a dramatic effect on our health especially as we age through continued exposure. Especially reading and hearing that olive oil is not what you should be using for cooking got me thinking as I grew up in a household where olive oil was used for everything and I’m a big consumer of olive oil myself. So it was a great episode to research for, empowering me with the knowledge to now make a healthy choice in regards to the cooking oils I choose to use.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Things to consider when choosing cooking oils
  • Why you should avoid inhaling smoking oil
  • Why you should throw away oil that begins to smoke
  • How to determine an oil’s resistance to becoming rancid
  • The difference between saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats
  • Why high polyunsaturated oils are not recommended for cooking
  • Which oils to avoid and not use for cooking
  • Why cold pressed oils are beneficial
  • Why hydrogenated coconut oil known as copha is harmful
  • Why Palm oil is not a good choice of oil to use
  • The Best and healthiest oils to use for cooking
  • Which country consumes the most olive oil
  • Why refined coconut oil may be unhealthy
  • The importance of using pasture-raised or grass-fed animal products
  • How to store oils to stop them from going rancid quickly.
