Seize the Day with Natalie Miller-Snell

Guest Advice Compilation Show  

 

Hello everyone - today is show 40 so I thought I would celebrate with a compilation show.

I’ve had the great fortune to have some truly inspiring guests on - phenomenal women.  They have been gracious enough to share their stories and impart some invaluable advice for listeners.  In this show I have compiled that wonderful advice.

Each guest has offered their own unique and different take on how to Seize the Day; how to take advantage of opportunities presented to us.  It’s fabulous having them all together in one bite sized, inspiring piece of audio.

Enormous thanks to these incredible individuals: - 

AL Brooks

EJ Noyes

Melissa Brayden

Jennifer Brown

 

Seize the Day was inspired by my favourite latin expression, Carpe Diem. I’ve had some great mentors throughout my life who have offered me invaluable guidance. I'm hoping to do the same through these podcasts.  We have so many wonders at our fingertips; sometimes we just need a little help, or someone to help point us in the right direction. 

 

I hope you enjoy the show!

Find a Hobby You Love - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

It’s often through embracing a hobby that we find our passion. The point of a hobby is to have fun doing an activity that lowers our stress and allows us a break from watching the clock and checking off to-do items on our list. It’s a chance to be a kid again and approach life with that same spirited-adventure. When we embrace this side of life, we live it, and we live it with a smile on our face. We feel lighter and more excited about the moments ahead of us. 

Join me for this episode as we explore ways to find a hobby you will love.

How to Create Positive Change through Flexibility - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

The world is never going to fit our ideals. We will always live in a state of frustration if we expect life to go a certain way. The beauty of life is that it does challenge us and make us acutely aware that we are not one person living on an island with a magic button to turn things on and off as we wish. We are living in a complex system amongst others with differing, often competing goals, and if we wish to live in harmony with these differences, then we have to learn how to be more flexible.

Join me for this episode as we explore ways to become more flexible in life.

How to Thrive from Criticism - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

Let’s face it, receiving criticism can be stressful and deflating to your confidence depending on how it’s delivered, but more importantly, how you interpret it. See that’s the key right there. With anything that can potentially affect us, it’s our interpretation of information that can either make or break us. If we can learn to open up to critique, we can improve.

Join me for this episode to explore ways you can thrive through criticism.

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

From time to time we crave a reboot in life. We may be tired and in need of something new or perhaps we were tossed out into the wild by something outside of our control. Either one of these leads us to the same circumstance – we need to start fresh or else risk falling into the negative abyss of dissatisfaction and stunted growth.

Join me in this episode to explore ways to make a fresh start.

How to Deal with Empathy Fatigue - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

I’d describe myself as an empath. When someone is hurt, I’m hurt. When someone is sad, I’m sad. When someone is in a bad mood, I’m in a bad mood. I seem to absorb the energy of whatever is happening around me. This can be all consuming and detrimental to my well-being. I realized after a while that taking on the weight of the world’s problems would destroy me if I didn’t set some safety measures and boundaries into place.

Today I wanted to share some of those.

Why We Should Adopt a Growth Mindset

 

Seize the Day Podcast

 

Welcome to Seize the Day Podcast with Natalie Miller-Snell.

 

In todays show I talk about Growth Mindset

 

  • What is a Growth Mindset
  • Why is it a good to adopt a Growth Mindset

 

Growth Mindset is knowing that with continual learning and practise, you can get better at anything.  You can achieve ANYTHING.

 

Over 30 years ago, Stanford Psychologist, Carol Dweck, developed the terms fixed mindset and growth mindset - she used these terms to describe beliefs individuals have about learning and intelligence.

4 Ways to Help you Live a Life that Matters - Curves Welcome

Curves Welcome with Suzie Carr

I ran into a woman I used to work with at the university when out grocery shopping a few weeks ago. When I asked how she was doing, she began to cry. Not just cry, but sob. The tears rolled down her cheeks faster than she could swipe them away and she kept apologizing for getting so emotional.

This woman, I’ll name Mary for the sake of this podcast, lives a typical life. The truth is, most of us are overwhelmed by the enormity of tasks and obligations we agree to tackle.

In this episode I share 4 ways to help you stop overcommitting so you can live a life that holds more meaning.
