Welcome to Episode Number 5: Gratitude in Lockdown
Today's episode will be especially interesting if you are experiencing a difficult season. You'll hear me break down my gratitude list from 2020, after spending almost a year in lockdown. I believe the lessons are applicable for any challenging season of life.

The photo below is a fun self portrait I took in the middle of the lockdown. I hadn't been able to visit a hairdresser for months, and wanted to capture the emotions that I knew a lot of people around the world were experiencing.
This is EPISODE NUMBER 4 of the podcast, and today I’m so excited to bring you my very first interview. It’s my special joy to introduce you to one of Australia’s most influential Life Coaches, Jeamin Frazer.
Jaemin has just published his latest book, Unhindered: the Seven Essential Practises for Overcoming Insecurity.
He’s a TEDx speaker, has a popular radio segment called the One Minute Coach, that’s on stations all over Australia.
He’s a global leader on the subject of personal insecurity, and the founder of The Insecurity Project. If you haven't listened to his podcast, I can definitely recommend it.
I first met Jaemin in Germany about 4 years ago, and have since had the privilege of being interviewed by him, so it was really special to be on the other end of the conversation. To hear that interview, click here.

Episode 3: Overcoming Negativity Bias.
A bias is a preference for one particular thing, when we’re given the choice between two or more things of equal value.
A Negativity Bias means that even if we’re exposed to both negative and positive experiences, the negative experience has a greater impact on us.
Here’s a few practical examples:
Welcome to episode number 2 of the podcast. Today’s topic is: How to Create a Lifestyle of Gratitude.
Today, I will be sharing a process you can use to create a lifestyle of gratitude. You will be able to identify and journal special moments that you can celebrate for years to come.
In contrast to goal setting, which is future focused, Gratitude Hunting is a reflective process that focuses on the past. It's the opposite of goals setting. However, Gratitude Hunting also creates awareness, of what you can celebrate in the present moment.
Photos mentioned in today's show are found below.

Welcome to the very first episode of my new podcast. I’m so excited to share about the topics of goals and gratitude, which I am really passionate about. In today’s show, I’ll be sharing my own personal story, and I’ve called this episode: My Personal Gratitude Journey.
The aim of this podcast is to promote the benefits of gratitude, and help you set and achieve goals that really matter. I’m currently writing a book around this topic, and have decided that a podcast would be an excellent way to share some of the content along the way.
