With the world feeling increasingly uncertain and scary, finding the humour in life can often be a struggle but in this week's episode, Ella talks to author Naomi Bagdonas about why it's more important than ever. Despite seeming like a frivolous thing, they explore how humour has the power to actually connect us more as humans as well as the science on why it can impact our physical and mental health and ultimately our wellbeing.

How To Set Goals When the World is a Mess
It’s natural, at this time of year, to think about what we want to do, achieve and be. Whether in our workouts, our work lives - or just regarding our relationship with ourselves. But with so much uncertainty, national lockdowns and a news cycle that’s enough to make anyone want to retreat back under the duvet, making plans, plotting goals and actually achieving them is tougher than ever. When we polled our audience on Instagram, over half of people said the sheer mental load of 2021 had sapped their motivation to set and strive for their health goals. If you’ve got no time or energy for self-improvement right now, that’s totally understandable. But, if you do, committing to small changes in your own little world could be of real benefit during this wild moment we're living through. But how do you choose goals that you love too much bail on? What can you do to ensure you’re striving for improvement in as kind a way as possible? And how do you keep yourself focused and on-mission, in the midst of…*all this*? These are among the questions we grapple with in today’s conversation, with help from Dr Anita Aitsi-Selmi, a medical doctor and public health expert-turned-transformational coach to leaders in medicine, law and business, and author of The Success Trap. Along with Dr Heather McKee, a psychologist and behaviour change specialist who helps companies and individuals make healthy changes, and make them last, with her Bite Sized Habits course. Topics: Don't set goals until you've done a mental declutter  How to do an energy audit to work out what you need The case for setting intrinsic goals Don’t love goals? Try rituals instead Why self-kindness leads to more success Like what you’re hearing?

Bullet Points | Need a good night's sleep?
Bullet Points • Need a good night’s sleep? In this mid-week episode I share some tips for helping you get a better night’s sleep since it’s something, based on the DMs, messages and emails I’ve been receiving, that seems to be bothering a lot of people right now. I can relate, I’ve suffered with insomnia in the past and stress is often the thing that causes the most disruption to my ability to fall asleep, stay sleeping and sleep well. As we’re all under added stress right now it’s no surprise that for a lot of people sleep is becoming harder and harder. In the episode, I share the five strategies that have worked for me and that I recommend to try to get sleep back on track, even with the added stresses and strains: - Make a list of everything that’s on your mind before your head hits the pillow. The act of writing out any worries can compartmentalise them and minimise the stress attached to them. - If you’re working from home and are tempted to have a quick nap when you’d normally run out for your afternoon coffee then, well, don’t. - Create the perfect environment for sleep; a comfortable bed, the right kind of lighting, the right temperature - it all helps. - Create a sleep schedule - and stick to it. - Take a look and what you’re eating and when you’re eating it. A small tweak such as eating dinner an hour earlier could make all the difference when it comes to sleep quality. To find the full, unedited episode simply click the link in my bio or type ‘The Emma Guns Show’ into your preferred podcast platform. As ever, I’d love to know what you think whether that’s in the comments below, on DM or via email. I make this podcast for YOU and if there’s anything you’d like to hear on this subject, or any other, please feel free to let me know. #podcast #selfhelp #loneliness #lonely #health #mentalhealth #wellness   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
