Break Free from Your Comfort Zone

In this episode of Live the 8Wise™ Way we continue to look at the internal dimension and explore the concept of intellectual wellness. Intellectual wellness is making sure your brain is stimulated, to ensure you keep developing and growing as a person. It ensures we continue to learn and thrive, but at a really basic level it also ensures our survival as a species. During this episode I am going to explore the different aspects of intellectual wellness. We explore how our comfort zone safeguards us from the unknown, but in doing so it limits us from exploring our potential. We also look at the different intelligence types, and how the modern education system is often too linear which can cause many of us to feel not good enough or not smart enough. Ultimately I help you understand how you can manage your intellectual wellness so that you can prevent anxiety, stress, depression and other mental health issues.

Who Am I and Why Does It Matter?

In previous episodes we have covered emotional and physical wellness, as we explore the first dimension of the 8Wise™ model. In this episode we are moving on to the next dimension – your internal dimension, and your inner world and your spiritual wellness. Now this doesn’t necessarily mean anything religious or faith-based. In fact, I think we spend a lot of time externalising our spiritual wellness and look for something divine, when spiritual wellness is about self-reflection and connecting with yourself. Who are you? What do you want to do with your life? Are you happy?

Know Your Body, Know Your Mind

Do you find yourself neglecting your physical wellbeing when you’re in a rut? It’s common for us to become less active and get into poor routines when we’re feeling down, but as the old trope goes, a healthy body really can make a healthy mind. In this episode I explore some of the ways you can improve your physical wellbeing to help you live a happier, healthier life. I give you a practical breathing exercise you can use to tackle sleep problems including insomnia, and I also talk through some of the things you can do to improve your nutrition and exercise plans to embed long-term healthier habits. There is such a strong link between your physical and emotional wellness, and it’s so important you listen to this podcast and put some of my 8Wise™ model into practice to support your mental health prevention journey.

How to Break Down the Mental Chaos

In this episode I will be outlining the 8Wise™ process and showing you how it can be used to break down the mental chaos. You might be thinking how do I know this works? Well, I have had a long battle with mental health myself, and it’s actually the reason why I studied psychotherapy and developed the 8Wise™ program. Having studied criminology at University, I recognised the psychological signs when I was spiralling from stress to anxiety to depression, and then to agoraphobia. When I was too scared to even get off my sofa, I knew something had to change, and so I created 8Wise™ and I used it for my own recovery. It works. And if you follow the steps in this podcast, you can start to break down your own mental chaos and make it work for you too.
