Ep 15. The Business of Bread with Eoin Cluskey

This episode is a really interesting chat on how Eoin created the concept of Bread 41, which is a very popular bakery in Dublin. T hese are the conversations that inspired the Life Lessons podcast. We talk about his story in the food business but what I found really interesting is the culture he creates, alongside his sustainability efforts, and how he will keep hold up these ideals as the business expands. I have no experience in a bricks and mortar business, so I found the conversation really interesting, and I hope you do too. This is actually the final episode of the first season of Life Lessons, and I just want to thank you for listening, whether this is your first episode or if you have listened to them all.

Ep 14. Training in Pregnancy with Emma Dowling

In this week’s episode of Life Lessons, I am very excited to have Emma Dowling who is one of Ireland’s original prenatal and postnatal coaches. I wanted to talk about prenatal training in a long format, as I’m sure you will realise, it is quite nuanced and different for every body and every pregnancy. I hope you find it helpful, and if so, please do share it with your friends or family or anybody that might find it helpful too.

Ep 13. The Secrets of Healthy Skin with Corinna Tolan

Corinna is one of Ireland’s most respected skin and beauty experts, and also a good friend of mine. I have struggled hugely with my acne over the years, and we discuss that journey, but we also talk about other skin concerns like rosacea, wrinkles and sun damage. We talk about how to feed the skin what it needs, but also about running the successful family business Monica Tolan Beauty. monicatolan.com instagram.com/corinna_monicatolanbeauty Sponsors: join.whoop.com/siobhan flowstate.ie discount: LIFELESSONS30

Ep 12. Breathwork with Cathy Scanlon PhD

I am excited to talk about breathwork as it really was life changing for me. Cathy has a PhD in neuroscience and left academia to become a full time breath work coach. You might have heard of and tried “breathwork” but “breathwork” comes in lots of different forms. Think of it like “exercise”. You might have tried one type but never found a form that you found life changing or even effective. In this episode we talk about our experiences with breathwork and why we became breathwork facilitators. It really did change the path of my life, and I’m excited to bring it to more people. The breath is powerful for both exciting and de-exciting the nervous system. There is an excellent feature on the Whoop app, in collaboration with Dr. Andrew Huberman, that allows you to select which option you need given your current stress levels. Once again, this episode is kindly sponsored by Whoop. I’m sure you know by now that Whoop is a wearable fitness tracker that specializes in breaking down your recovery, sleep, and workouts, while also helping you to manage your overall health and wellbeing. So if you want to get tracking your fitness, but also your sleep and now your stress, you can get a free Whoop 4.0 and your first month free when you go to join.whoop.com/siobhan. @breathworkcoaching - Cathy’s instagram breathworkcoaching.com

Ep 11 . Feeding Your Baby - with Lydia

Lydia is officially a breastfeeding counsellor but this episode is about more than that. With the pressure to breastfeed felt by a lot of mothers, I wanted to create an episode so that women can feel prepared for birth and can make informed decisions about what is best for them and their baby. I’m sure this is a bit of a niche subject and won’t be applicable to all of my listeners but I will have another episode soon that might interest you. Once again, this episode is sponsored by Whoop. I’m sure you know by now that Whoop is a wearable fitness tracker that specializes in breaking down your recovery, sleep, and workouts, while also helping you to manage your overall health and wellbeing.

Ep 10. Influencer Marketing with Siobhan Murray

Siobhan Murray is the founder of 23 The Agency, which is the agency I work with, and one of the founders of Mantra Official. In this episode we speak about her really interesting career to date, as well as the best way to do influencer marketing e.g. how it can benefit the brand, the creator and the consumer. But I also wanted to learn more about creating a viable product-led business like Mantra, all while juggling family-life. Once again this episode is sponsored by Whoop.

Ep 9. Health and Fitness: Balancing it all

In this solo episode of Life Lessons, I try to define “healthy” and how that might look different for different people. I talk about finding a balance in all areas of your life including physical, mental, and even the health of your social life. Once again, this episode is sponsored by Whoop. I’m sure you know by now that Whoop is a wearable fitness tracker that specializes in breaking down your recovery, sleep, and workouts, while also helping you to manage your overall health and wellbeing. Whoop has really helped me find a healthy balance of physical and mental health. The graphs of recovery and strain is an excellent indicator of overtraining and helps me make decisions on training intensity - which is very important in pregnancy.

Ep 8. How to get pregnant? with Dr. Michelle Hone

Dr. Michelle Hone has a PhD in Nutrition and is the founder of The Fit Clinic, which is a team of registered nutritionists specialising in a range of different areas. Michelle has been sharing some really helpful information on her Instagram, but also through her Fertility Focus program, which helps couples struggling with fertility. Perhaps you have been on a fertility journey for some time, or are considering trying to conceive in the near future and want to prepare yourself with as much knowledge as possible. Maybe you have no interest in trying for a baby any time soon, but want to understand the importance of hormones on female health. I hope everyone will get something out of this episode.

Ep 7. Building a Social Media Empire with Sean Casey

Sean has built over 3 million followers from his famous simple but tasty recipes, no BS fat loss videos, and authentic content. He has recipe Books, his online fitness program “The Sean Casey Academy” but also The Social Circle, which is all about how to grow your social media. His methods work. I did his course when he first launched it last year and the one video I made using his specific blueprint, went viral. This is somebody who didn’t get famous for doing anything dramatic, but for showing up consistently, understanding the algorithms and genuinely wanting to help people.

Ep 6. Do diets work? w/ Sinead from Intuitive Eating Ireland

In today’s episode - I have Sinead Crowe who set up Intuitive Eating Ireland on instagram. It is a great resource for anybody who is looking to move away from dieting and learn to eat more intuitively. I thought this would be an interesting conversation to have on the podcast, because of course - I do believe there is a time and place for dieting. We actually recorded this late last year, but I just wanted to space out the episodes where we talk about nutrition so that the podcast isn’t too focused on that. We talk about eating disorders and disordered eating. If you feel like you would like more information on these, please check out bodywhys.ie, and the instagram accounts linked below. I hope you find this episode helpful and interesting!

Ep 5. Earthquake Aftermath & Changing Values with Diren Kartal

Today I am joined by Diren Kartal, who is a close friend of mine and also an online fitness coach. But today we are not talking about fitness. Diren and his family are Kurdish/Turkish and he is just back from a second trip to Turkey to help with with aftermath of the earthquake that affected millions of people in Turkey and Syria. Diren is passionate about helping people in all areas of life. We also talk about how our values have changed since we first met in Bali all those years ago. We tackle some controversial topics later on in the episode, but I think it is interesting to hear differing opinions. Myself and Diren would have conflict of opinions in a respectful way in real life and I think you will hear that throughout this episode.

In this episode, I speak to Grace Mannion (www.instagram.com/gracemannion_) who is a Female Body Composition & Prep Coach, as well as an IFBB Bikini Athlete.
