In this episode you’ll hear me talking to Karen DiMarco about how to take the weight of our bodies off our minds.
This post popped up on my facebook feed yesterday from 6 years ago. Honestly.
6 25 years of thinking about what to eat, how to exercise, whether this is a ‘good’ meal or a ‘bad’ meal, just f@cking do it, this time it will work, I’ll start on Monday.
Not. Any. More. Since this conversation with Karen.
You’ll hear me sounding slightly insane talking about the amount of thinking I have had about food and how much I weigh without even realising it and how so many of us are literally thinking ourselves fat.
So if you, like me, are fed up of white-knuckling through the latest diet fad and beating yourself up about not going to the gym, you’ll find this refreshingly insightful.
She also shares details of her new upcoming Weightless program right at the end of the episode so make a note to listen to this one sooner rather than later.

PS. I don’t get a commission for recommending Karen’s product by the way – I just think it sounds awesome!
In today’s podcast, Shannon Cooper, our Head Coach at A Little Peace of Mind answers the following questions. Beautiful.
- Can other people make you feel stressed and anxious?
- What about repetitive, intrusive thoughts?
- What about avoiding things I’m scared of?
- Can Mind ever abandon us?
- What do I DO when I’m having a bad day?
- Is it my common sense and wisdom that’s telling me to avoid the thing I’m scared of so I should listen to it? Or is it just thought so I should ignore it?
- How do we change our thoughts so we can have better ones and therefore a better life?
One of the things about anxiety is that we can become scared of uncertainty.
We want to KNOW what’s going to happen so we can plan for any contingency – we need our surroundings to be reliable and just so in order that we can have any chance of relaxing.
The result? We turn into control freaks.
One of my colleagues joked last week that she could tell how well she was doing by how control-freaky she felt on any given day – and I would say that’s probably true for all of us.
This is taken from the upcoming Little Peace of Mind 12 Week Program and here’s where I started to see something more deeply true that impacted on my ability to get comfortable with the uncertainties of life.
