SHOW DESCRIPTION: Curiosity is so important because challenging your beliefs is how the mind-brain connection is structured to work, which is neuroplasticity. So we should be constantly looking at ourselves deeply, really thinking about the why behind what we believe, say, and do, and working on questioning this and growing- this is mind management in action. So, when you find something is wrong with the beliefs you have held for so long, and that has basically defined you, how do you find the strength and direction to make these changes, how do you forgive yourself and not let the shame and guilt destroy you, how do deal with the loss of friends and family when you change. In today’s podcast, I talk with Josh Harris, former pastor and unpublished author of the book about purity culture, How to Kiss Dating Goodbye, about exactly this- and about the 100% change he made in his life. Just a note to the listeners, we experienced some tech issues toward the end of this podcast, so you might notice a shift in audio quality. 💡OFFERS FROM OUR SPONSORS: -Neurohacker: If you’re in your late 20’s or older, adding Qualia Senolytic to your diet can play a CRUCIAL role in combating negative aging symptoms.

We dive into what the “self” really is, using practical analogies and metaphors. But more importantly, we talk about how you can change your “self” in this moment through taking responsibility and recognizing that our degree of freedom to grow our self will always match our degree of responsibility.

Jameela Jamil is such a person and on today’s podcast we have a brilliant discussion on so many important mental health issues like body dysmorphia, her own more than 20-year struggle with anorexia, the energy draining and joy stealing this focus has, the pressure on women to live up to patriarchal standards, the influence of social media on our youth and so much more. Jameela is a British actress, model, and activist and BBC radio host. She gained widespread recognition in the TV series "The Good Place." In addition to her acting career, Jameela is known for her body positivity advocacy and campaigns against beauty standards and body shaming. She co-founded the "I Weigh" movement and podcast, promoting self-worth beyond physical appearance, which she recently interviewed recently on. Jameela has been an outspoken advocate for inclusivity, mental health awareness, and LGBTQ+ rights and is an active voice in the fight against online bullying and misinformation.

This is part 2 of my series on parenting, boundaries, and mental health. Part one can be found here. Whenever you, as a parent or caregiver, set a boundary, make sure that you always explain why in a way that your child will understand. Use the moment to model healthy boundaries for your child and teach them what a healthy boundary looks like, using language that encourages your child to think about the situation and what it means. Avoid using language that shuts them down such as saying “because I said so”, which will make the boundary feel more like a punishment than a teaching opportunity.  Read the blog here: ⁠https://drleaf.com/blogs/news/how-to-set-boundaries-while-still-respecting-validating-emotions OFFERS FROM OUR SPONSORS:  -AquaTru: 20% OFF any AquaTru purifier!

This is part 1 of a 2-part series on parenting, boundaries, and mental health.   From the moment children are born, they are tied to their environment and the people within their environment. They are born into a community which they both shape and are shaped by.    A child’s identity is closely tied to their community – their family, friends, and other acquaintances. Children develop a sense of who they are in relation to who they are with. This has both a huge potential for growth and connection and a huge potential for harm, which is why teaching your child how to have healthy relationships from a young age is so important for their mental and physical wellbeing.   Read the blog here: https://drleaf.com/blogs/news/the-importance-of-teaching-children-boundaries Sign up to Patreon to get access to full AD-FREE episodes, exclusive downloads, live Q&As, and more: https://www.patreon.com/drcarolineleaf  OFFERS FROM OUR SPONSORS:  -Qualia Senolytic: If you’re in your late 20’s or older, adding Qualia Senolytic to your diet can play a CRUCIAL role in combating negative aging symptoms.

Has this podcast been sped up? it was unusually fast speech. may just be my devise but I'm wondering if it was a recording fault. only mentioning because it made it very difficult to listen to. 🤔

thank God for the fast forward! basically a giant infomercial with a few bits of somewhat useful information. geeze. almost not worth listening to. Definitely not worth it if you cannot fast forward.

How wonderful that I can now see what I've learned from you in practise! I listen with more deliberation and I can actually visualise the process of thinking, feeling and choosing. I am still an infant in this process so I am so excited at how much more enriched and stronger I will be as I become more practiced at neurocycling. Thank you so much, from me, my family and my friends because we are all gaining from me learning. ❤

Power is internal, silent inner knowing and claiming self. People will not be treated by you unless they have an issue in themselves. They will be drawn to you instead.

I was in an emotionally abusive relationship during my college years. In the beginning I also thought well he has never hit me physically but, that's the insidious nature of such relationships, they manipulate you, make you feel guilty and sudden outbursts of anger and breaking objects. It was a very traumatic experience of my life, I lost my self esteem and confidence. I'm on a healing journey.

the information provided on this podcast is so valuable, some people do not have access to mental health services at least not at such depth and understanding. It's very helpful, thank you

Thank you for your wise words. Your honest, knowledgeable and heartfelt approach to managing the mind is the most helpful guide I have happened across in my years of trying to understand myself, my family and friends. Jacqui 😊

Thank you Caroline and Nicole. I have just discovered both of you after listening to Dr Will Cole's podcast. I have purchased Nicole's book and have just started to do the work. I have witnessed how the brain can change when you nurture your mind by consistently practising gratitude and focused breath work (that I started during covid restrictions in 2020 that left me open and vulnerable to 'stuff' that came up). I am so hopeful that by continuing my personal work I will be able to lead my fullest life and be the parent I need to be rather than the parent who, despite trying really hard, has become a version of her own parents (good and bad!). I think your approaches share commonalities and are complimentary. I can't wait to work through both books and am excited for being able to report back to you. Thank you for YOUR work. 😊 Jacqui
