WWC – Improving Brain Health

Episode #76 – Looking After Your Brain as You Age

Many women are afraid of deteriorating brain health as they age, this is particularly significant for women who have had a parent with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. This week is Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness week so I thought I would talk about what you an do to improve your brain health and reduce your risk of neuro-cognitive diseases.

I share with you 10 things that you can do to reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia. The earlier that you address these 10 things the more likely you will remain healthy and alert as you grow older. It is believed that there is a window of opportunity between 40 and 50 where women can prevent the progression of neuro-degeneration.

We know that women are more likely to experience neuro-degeneration than men and now there is research being done to see the role that menopause plays as well. This research is showing that there is a hormonal switch that occurs as oestrogen starts to drop that increases the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease. That doesn’t mean that there is nothing that you an do to protect your brain.

Listen to the entire episode to learn the 10 steps that you can take, you will find that they are very similar to the steps that I often talk about when it comes to navigating menopause with ease.
Please share this episode with another women who you think would benefit from learning more about improving her brain health as she ages. Also let me know in the comments what you are going to do to improve your brain health or ask me any questions that you might have.

WWC – Stepping into Midlife with Confidence

Episode #75 – Stepping into Midlife

In this week’s episode of Wise Women Conversations I am honoured to welcome Deb Johnstone as my guest. A few weeks ago shared an interview that I did with Deb for her Re-Inventing Midlife Summit so I thought it was time for me to have her as a guest to share her wisdom.
As a Life Coach who works with women as they reach their midlife, Deb has a lot of wisdom to share. Deb helps women who are feeling lost and confused to get clarity and confidence to step into the next phase of their life. She also shares the importance of feeling the emotions that might come up for you rather than trying to bury them.

Deb is running a second free Re-Inventing Midlife Summit in early November, if you want to be a part of this fantastic event you can register at www.womenreinventingmidlife.com/summit2

WWC – Time to Sleep

Episode #74 Time to Sleep

Sleep is one of the most common issues that concerns women as the move through menopause. As your progesterone levels drop you can find yourself having problems with your sleep but it is not only progesterone that can cause issues with your sleep. Your sleep habits play a very big role and many people have unhealthy sleep habits.

This week’s episode of the Wise Women Conversations Podcast is a recording of a facebook live that I did during the recent 7 Day Hormone reset that I ran. In this recording I provide an overview about sleep cycles and what impacts them plus I also share some simple things you can do to support healthy sleep cycles so that you wake refreshed.

WWC – Creating Calm with Horses

Episode #73 Creating Calm with Horses

In this week’s episode of Wise Women Conversations I am chatting with Lynn Jenkin from Horsanity. Lynn has lived a varied life in many countries and had many different careers but the one constant in her life has been horses. Now Lynn combines her love of horses into her coaching business.

Lynn shares that the horses don’t do anything except “be” horses but it is within this beingness that we can learn to connect to ourselves and to the horses. We talk a lot about energy, the energy we give out and the energy that horses can give us. Lynn also shares some of the stories that she has seen played out when different people experience the energy of the horses.

This was a very calming conversation, Lynn has obviously learned how to use energy like a horse with all of her years living with them. Have a listen to the entire episode to learn about the role that horses can play in helping us re-write our stories and to connect with ourselves.

For more information about Lynn and her horses visit www.horsanity.com.au or follow her on facebook or instagram, she also has a facebook group called Horsanity Herd.
