Les Talk About It Series: Relationships

Relationships are important for humans. We need them to survive, never mind thrive.

Seize the Day was inspired by my favourite latin expression, Carpe Diem. I’ve had some great mentors throughout my life who have offered me invaluable guidance. I'm hoping to do the same through these podcasts.  We have so many wonders at our fingertips; sometimes we just need a little help, or someone to point us in the right direction. 

 

I hope you enjoy the show!

I have welcomed a talented artist on today's show. We're going to chat about some of life's curves and how they helped shape the course of their life.

How to Deal with Creative Burnout - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

It is great to have goals and desires and a steady pulse on actions. But, it’s only great as long as you are not burning the wick on both ends. Because when you do that, that light, that energy will fizzle out.

Have you ever felt this way? Completely overwhelmed and unable to continue with projects, even those projects you absolutely love? You’re not alone. Even the most passionate of creative people can end up burning out from the pressure of always trying to keep up with an unrealistic pace.

Here's how to avoid it: 

  • Unplug
  • Find harmony in the work you do
  • Add wiggle room
  • Change your environment
  • Meditate with deep breathing

How to be More Assertive - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

To be able to clearly communicate your ideas assertively in a way that stabilizes a situation is a skill that is hard to learn. The key here for those of you who are not naturally assertive is that it’s a skill that can be learned. If you don’t learn it, the costs can be great to both personal and professional relationships and problems will continue to build until you take a step to neutralize them.

In this episode, we explore these tips to becoming more assertive: 

  • State the problem from your viewpoint
  • Validate and show empathy for the other person
  • State your needs and feelings
  • Be straightforward
  • Pay attention to body language

Doing the Right Thing

Seize the Day Podcast

 

 

Welcome to Seize the Day Podcast with Natalie Miller-Snell.

 

In todays show, I explore a very simple concept - ‘Doing the Right Thing’.  The show was inspired by a video I posted on social media (link below).  How often do we actually do the right thing?  It can mean coming out of your comfort zone, getting vulnerable and walking into the unknown.  It can also mean a bit of self reflection.  It’s a very interesting concept and question to ask ourselves.

 

Seize the Day was inspired by my favourite latin expression, Carpe Diem. I’ve had some great mentors throughout my life who have offered me invaluable guidance. I'm hoping to do the same through these podcasts.  We have so many wonders at our fingertips; sometimes we just need a little help, or someone to point us in the right direction. 

 

I hope you enjoy the show!

A Problem Shared is a Problem Halved

Seize the Day Podcast

 

 

Welcome to Seize the Day Podcast with Natalie Miller-Snell.

 

In todays show, I wanted to explore the basic concept of talking.  How a problem shared really is a problem halved.

 

We can often drive ourselves crazy and worry unnecessarily when we don’t share.  We can build things out of context in our mind until we are immobilised through fear.  So in this episode I talk about some of my experiences and some examples, to demonstrate why it’s good to talk.

 

Seize the Day was inspired by my favourite latin expression, Carpe Diem. I’ve had some great mentors throughout my life who have offered me invaluable guidance. I'm hoping to do the same through these podcasts.  We have so many wonders at our fingertips; sometimes we just need a little help, or someone to point us in the right direction.

How to Make Better Decisions

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

It can be hard to make a decision. Especially important ones where the risks are great. Sometimes deciding on something is a leap of faith. You’ll never know the outcome until the consequences and benefits of your decision begin to show. What this tells me is kind of comforting in one way. Here’s why. The outcome of the decision is not as important as the act of deciding.

In today's podcast, we take a look at: 

  • Avoid paralysis by analysis
  • 3 tips to make a better decision
  • What to do if the decision fails
