  • Episode 17: Busting other people’s opinions

    How important are other people’s opinions to you? Seeking advice and support is one thing, but sometimes placing too much value on someone else’s opinion can have the opposite effect and limit us instead. It’s easy to become sensitive to or obsessed with what other people think, and worrying about it is something that can be hard to stop once that train has left the station. Keeping ourselves mentally durable or tough helps bring the stability we need to meet our goals, so taking a lead from people who have tapped into this mindset seems like a great place to start. In this episode, Andy and Louise deconstruct some old beliefs they once held, busting the impact of other people’s opinions as the draw from the perspective of guests who have overcome extreme events, and others who have used this mindset to their advantage in other, more common contexts. Why is Louise not fond of straws, and how accomplished did Andy become at playing saxophone? The mental health journey isn’t always traumatic, but if there’s trauma to be unpacked, you know they’ll go there.

  • Episode 16: Who is Teisha Rose?

    Has anyone ever told you to ‘just think positive’? That’s toxic positivity talking, and it invalidates another person’s emotions and their lived reality. Especially if they live with a chronic illness. Teisha Rose was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at age 22 and has been living with chronic illness for decades. Podcast hosts, Louise & Andy have been discussing the concept of reframing our experiences to help get through difficult situations in recent episodes of Reframe of Mind, but no amount of reframing will cure Teisha’s MS. So how does a change in perspective play a part when dealing with chronic illness? And how do you look after your mental health when you live with an illness like MS?

  • Episode 15: Breaking Our Habits and Addictions

    Have you ever felt motivated to Google “Am I addicted to alcohol?” or “Am I Addicted to sugar?” Addictions come in all shapes and forms, and it’s generally the things like nicotine or hard drugs we think of that need to be kicked for good health, but what about if through peer pressure when you were younger, or through some other coping mechanism,  you’ve developed a habit over time that you need to change or break? Professor Maree Teesson AC from the Matilda Centre for Research in Mental Health and Substance Use, has developed a range of resources to help with addiction and depression and had a long chat with Louise and Andy in the previous episode about mental health and substance use. In this episode, Andy and Louise unpack some of the points Maree highlighted, sharing some of their own experiences with addiction on their mental health journey as they navigated all the regular social norms younger people face.
