— Bev Roberts -

I am celebrating the completion of my book, 'Hope in a Dark Tunnel: Your roadmap to well-being when navigating chronic illness so I decided to re-broadcast 3 lessons to show that it is possible to make step changes and you don’t need to wait until you fall off a health cliff.

Inspire yourself with these essential insights from your host Bev Roberts

I spoke about

  • Resilience to stress being a complete myth

  • Being forced to slow down

  • Not letting go of your passion and dreams

  • Was it the glass ceiling?

  • The impact of not having an off switch

  • Giving myself permission

  • Making better choices about priorities

  • Learning to relax and meditate

  • The value of quality sleep

  • Three ways to change your sleep story

Value Quotes

“Today my life cannot be compared to what it was for all the right reasons”

“Being forced to slow down is not an easy task for an A type personality”

“There’s no time like now to stop, put yourself first and make a choice to live fabulously”

“I woke up to the fact that my body is my vehicle for life and when it doesn’t work optimally nothing else is possible or enjoyable”

“The challenge when you are sleep-deprived is that you fall asleep from sheer exhaustion but you don’t sleep deeply or stay asleep”

“I was amazed that putting in place simple rituals could have such a profound effect as a wind down to sleep”

“I’ve made it my mission is to shift entrepreneurs and professionals from being tired but wired to refreshed and energised every day”

055 No more starting over on Mondays | Melissa Costello

We’re in this diet mindset that keeps us stuck in the vicious circle instead of living more from a place of what is nourishing, what’s going to fuel me, what feels good for me
— Melissa Costello -

I feel so privileged that I get to connect with and interview people like the talented and inspirational Melissa Costello.  She shares her difficult journey with body image that has her supporting so many people in her work as a Transformational Eating Coach, Certified Clinical Nutritionist, Certified Spiritual Psychologist, Plant-Based Chef, Speaker and Author.  Melissa shares that eating well does not exclude a challenge with body image and inappropriate relationship with food.

Inspire yourself with these essential insights from Melissa Costello

We spoke about 

  • A difficult body image journey

  • The rise of chronic illness

  • Healing the relationship with food

  • The many benefits of clean eating

  • Finding balance and consistency in our relationship with food

  • One meal at a time mindset

  • Types of reasons why people eat

  • Melissa’s tips for Living Fabulously

Value Quotes 

“When I started to transform my diet, all my childhood illnesses went away”

“I thought that the healthier I ate and the more that I controlled my food, that would bring my body to a place that I felt good about”

“I basically healed my relationship to food and my body because I really saw the connection of how my eating was linked to my body image”

“As much as eating healthy and eating clean is important a lot of people struggle with the consistency”

“We’re overwhelmed, overloaded, people are not getting enough sleep”

“We are constantly being bogged down by electronics, phones and all these distractions and people aren’t getting the quality of time alone or the quality of sleep that they need”

“It’s become a world of convenience and what is convenient is not always healthy”

“I’ve finally felt that sense of freedom where I can really enjoy my body and feel good”

“Clean eating is not eating from a bag, box or a can but eating food as close to nature as you can”

“We’re in this diet mindset that keeps us stuck in the vicious circle instead of living more from a place of what is nourishing, what’s going to fuel me, what feels good for me”

“What I found for myself in my journey is that the healthier I ate, the better I felt and the more I wanted to do it”

“Each choice we make is either going to compound the problem or create solutions for us”
