Todays' show was a revisit to an earlier show I did with Mount St Benedict students Future Problem Solving Team talking about the language used around Asylum Seekers and Refugees. Since seeing them they have been interviewed by UN Youth, they have presented their projected at the Beecroft Forum Dinner where they met Matt Tinkler CEO of Save the Children and Ben Doherty from the Guardian. They have so much to share and this interview gives a snapshot of their infectious passion. How do they keep their passion and do they have a self care routine to support themselves to maintain their dedication to advocacy?
The end of Mental Health Week and the start of Carers Week was the perfect combination for a show about sleep. My guests was Rachel Mascord who works as a dentist as well as studying for a masters. Rachel had insomnia from the age of 7 years old and struggled with it for the next 25 years or more. Now 7 years into a much more stable evening and sleep routine, Rachel is keen to share her experience so that it can support others.
I would love to encapsulate all I spoke about with my guest Rachel Mascord but there was just so much I could never do it justice so you will simply have to listen!
My guests today are Sarah Carman from Sponge Education, a tutor and mentor for young people going through HSC and their parents and Jason Prior from Turramurra Chiropractic who is also a presenter on Body Brain and Mind on Tuesdays on TripleHfm as well as a trained nurse. As it is the start of Mental Health Awareness Week we spoke about the connection of self care in the body and its effect on the mind. The correlation of mental and physical stress and stress and physical ill-health. We cover HSC stress as well as life skills around anxiety and how to build a way of living that supports you when you most need it. We also talk about Supermoons and their affect on our bodies.
