Today's episode shares a wonderful conversation I had this Summer with personal trainer and fellow writer, Angela Bailey. Angela is the author of the magical fantasy book Believe, which was a finalist in three categories of the Readers' Choice Awards, (Best Children’s Book, Best Teen Book, & Best Adult Book) & was also awarded the Literary Titan silver book award.
Angela talks about how rediscovering writing at a very challenging time of her life helped her to regain her self-confidence, reconnect with her body and allowed her to prioritise herself again.
In our conversation today, you'll discover: - The surprising similarities between writing and exercise - How creativity can provide a personal space for reflection - The small daily habit that kick starts her day with achievement - How ditching one emotion became a fundamental part of her new routine - The link between realistic expectations, habits and success - Angie's own end of day gratitude practice
Angela also talks about how she didn't feel she was good enough to be a writer and how she overcame that imposter syndrome - if you've ever wanted to write a book, this episode might just give you the inspiration to get started!
