This week I am joined on the #FBLM podcast by Haemin Sunim, one of the most influential Zen Buddhist monks and teachers in South Korea, to talk about vulnerability, authenticity and finding out - and accepting - who we really are.
This is my first ever proper conversation with a Buddhist monk and in it Haemin shares a really unique perspective, talking about the need for us all to slow down, how intentional living is key to happiness and how difficult situations can be a blessing in disguise, allowing us to realise how precious life really is.
We also talk about the importance of fully accepting ourselves - our qualities and our flaws - in order to find happiness and calm.
Haemin shares so much actionable wisdom in this podcast and reveals what he does each day as a monk to bring about happiness and calm in his own life.

Kelly Harris, Nutritional Therapist- I loved this feel-good story. This school cook donated her February wages and received some grants so she could provide healthy, real food for every single student for the entire month.
Regardless of where you stand on meat vs no meat or dairy vs no dairy, eating real food (as opposed to processed stuff pulled out of a freezer bag and dumped in the deep fryer) is where children can start to develop a healthy relationship with eating which will last throughout their lives.
There are many reasons why children can have a poor diet or a poor relationship with food - family financial situation, a history of picky eating where parents have simply given up, peer pressure, emotional/control issues, neglect or even abuse. It is so easy to judge why a child's diet has ended up being less than ideal to meet their needs (and yes, my child had a chocolate croissant for lunch yesterday 😳) but I think it is more productive to look at solutions for how all children can be well-nourished and although it is just ONE MONTH in ONE SCHOOL in ONE PROVINCE in ONE COUNTRY 🇨🇦, I believe stories like this should be celebrated.
I'm lying on a bed tucked under a blanket in the basement of a Harley Street clinic at 10am on a Tuesday morning. When was the last time I lay down in the middle of the day, not asleep, but at rest? I can't remember, like most people I can't usually afford the luxury.
