The Power of Play

The Power of Play

In this episode I have the pleasure of chatting with the lovely Colette Reilly. Colette is a personal and business coach, a Director of Potential in Me, a ponder of big questions and a tea Jenny.

We talk about the power of play, both in our personal and professional life. When people are relaxed and happy they are more productive, creative and the work environment is much healthier. The power of play is undervalued in today’s society. Taking time to do things that are fun, relaxing and nurture your soul is never a bad thing. It has a ripple effect in our personal and professional lives.

Here are a few thought bomb takeaways:

  • Let’s take life a little less seriously. Play makes life and your career more enjoyable and more so it makes us more resourceful, it makes us show up better in every aspect of our lives;
  • Life is not that hard, making good stuff happen is not that hard. You need to decide what you want and take some action. Everything else is overthinking; and finally
  • At the end of the day we are not our thinking, we do not have to believe every thought that we think – this is also at the heart of my coaching. You will hear through these podcasts myself and my guests refer to the 3P or the 3 principles. In a nutshell, we are always and only living in the experience of our thoughts in the moment. We’ll be diving more into that in future episodes.

Until next time: Be well. Be inspired. Be You.

You Are More Than…

You Are More Than…

I’m excited to release episode #2 of The CPR of Life Podcast.

In this episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with Rosalind Main. Rosalind is an artist, a body positivist activist, and a model. I came across Rosalind and her co-founder of I Am More Than on Instagram. Two Scottish models celebrating diversity in ALL its forms. I was inspired by their message and more so their passion. I think if we cultivate the passion in our youth there is the potential to create massive change.

Some highlights from this conversation include:

– the power of knowing when opportunities are not right for us when we listen to and follow our intuition bigger and better things happen;

– the size label on clothing has no reflection on who you really are as a person; and

– when you believe in something, you have the power to make a difference.

I hope you enjoy the show. And please feel free to reach out with any feedback.

Much love,

Jessie-Lynn

Here are a few thought bomb takeaways:

  • You are more than a first impression, your age, size, ethnicity, anything that could be seen as an obstacle. Owning it and being more than what that obstacle is. The obstacle is only in your own mind. Celebrate and own it.
  • When you realize you have nothing to hide and nothing to be ashamed about the world is such a brighter place;
  • There are many young people who are using their talent and voice to stand for what they believe in – they are the voice of our future; and finally
  • Just do what you feel is right at the end of the day, it’s the most important thing.

You can find Rosalind’s details as well as links to the BBC video and her art page below.  

Until next time: Be well. Be inspired. Be You.

The Power and Art of Perception

The Power and Art of Perception

I’m excited to release the first episode of The CPR of Life Podcast.

In this first episode, I had the honour and pleasure of chatting with Robin Lockhart. We went through coach training together and have a variety of common interests in our work. Among many other things, Robin is a professional youth and community worker, co-founder of Catalyst in the Community and Director of The Griffin Research Community.

Some highlights from this conversation include:

– the power of meeting people where they are. In particular the youth of today, who are the future of tomorrow;

– the power of showing up with no masks, just human to human; and

– the fact that solutions come from within.

I hope you enjoy the show. And please feel free to reach out with any feedback.

Much love,

Jessie-Lynn

Episode Notes:

Here are a few thought bomb takeaways:

– Young people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

– Solutions to the problems have to come from within, whether that be the person, the community, etc. You can’t impose solutions.

– When we have conversations one human to another human, instead of one mask to another, we get places.

Be well. Be inspired. Be You.
