The Politics of Everything

In current times, with all the challenges of a global pandemic and what that means for us as we navigate work, family, isolation, sickness, and sanity (and in lockdown for some of us), the notion of kindness must be an anecdote for some of that which we struggle with. I am speaking today to Hugh Mackay, a highly regarded social psychologist and researcher, and the bestselling author of 22 books, including eight novels. His latest book, The Kindness Revolution, was published in 2021.

Body image is a topic rife with expectations, taboo, nuance and even debate. Nikki Parkinson is here today to discuss just that! Her career path of journalism, fashion writing and design makes her an ideal expert for this topic. That is because at the core of everything that former journalist Nikki Parkinson has done in her "second life" as a blogger, author and now fashion designer has been aimed at helping women find their confidence through the clothes that they wear and the life they lead.

Bronwen Sciortino is here today to discuss The Politics of Resilience. She is an author and self-professed ‘Simplicity Expert’ who spent almost two decades as a high powered, award winning executive before experiencing a life changing event that forced her to stop and ask the question ‘What if there’s a better way to live?’

Today, through corporate programs, conference platforms, retreats, professional mentoring and in the online environment, Bronwen teaches other people how easy it is to live life differently.

You will hear in the podcast:

  1. How to define real resilience, in an era where it has become a ‘buzz word’?
  2. The idea we need added resilience is because we’re more stressed and exhausted than ever before, and why actually, instead of being more resilient, we need to learn to be more connected with ourselves and simplify our lives.
  3. Where do many people go wrong when they try to be more resilient, in your own experience?
