I’ve been doing YouTube videos every week since January 2013.  They’re a personal highlight for me because we cover such a wide range of problem zapping topics from How To Create Great Habits, to How To Start Living a Perfect Day Right Now to Loving (yep, I said ‘Loving”) The Skin We’re In. I always aim so that they’re topical and all videos are researched for social impact. And I walk my talk. I take you into my life and share personal stuff like how I handle perimenopause and what it’s like to take the plunge and grow my hair out gray.

Here’s a quick video that gives you an idea of some of the subjects I cover.

One thought on “vlogs

  1. Hey Janne

    Oh you bring up a gazillion awesome topics so thank you first of all for inspiring me. I will have a think and do something, and when I do, I’ll let you know!

    In the meantime, the whole “good girl” thing is really common because so many of our generation had to be “good girls”. Being a “good girl” might’ve given rewards, kept us safe, or kept whole family’s on track – there’s a whole range and of course, this is going to play out in our life as we get older. I think what happens is that when we get to midlife and we see all these things that don’t work, have never worked but we continue to cycle through, we might see it’s because we’re still trying to be a “good girl” and it gets us really pissed off. We see that maybe if we would’ve been truer to ourselves we might’ve had different outcomes, etc. So my first thought is just to look and see how entrenched the ‘good girl” thing is in your life. If it’s really deep and maybe feels beyond what you can untangle, it could be awesome to work with a therapist.

    But if you feel like you can embark on your own, I say start with physical to begin releasing and working with anger. The life coach Cheryl Richardson describes an awesome technique of smashing old lightbulbs with a hammer (and of course protective eyewear) or you can do the ol’ wack a towel against a wall. On a practical level, it might be fun to go to some kick boxing cardio classes or beginning boxing to literally take your stuff out on a bag. But that’s where I would start this time of discovery, by going straight to my body and finding a way to release these feelings in a dynamic way. Besides the physical benefits and besides releasing anger, I think that it’s going to give you clarity and self esteem and help you start connecting with who you really are, the stuff that will help you begin the next chapter of your life.

    I hope that gives you a little idea for a start. Let me know….A fascinating topic and awesome that you’re at a point where you’re ready to explore!
