During this episode you will meet the delightful Meredith Rawlings who is based in North Carolina in the US.  Meredith is a Transformation Coach who works with female entrepreneurs and helps them better understand themselves, their purpose and helps them to live a more effortless and easier life. She talks honestly about her journey and how, having gone through a rough time in her life and a breakdown, she discovered Human Design; a system that combines astrology, quantum mechanics, the I Ching, Kabala, and Genetics.  She explains how the system creates a dynamic, detailed, and energetic blueprint of how you are designed to work, the characteristics that will play to your strengths and indicates what conditions you are susceptible to better understand yourself.  Meredith herself was a perfectionist (she still is but is now aware of her behaviour and manages this mindfully) and had multiple eating disorders when she was in college, she also suffered from insecurities from the age of ten whereby, she constantly compared herself to others.  Today she celebrates her differences and ‘imperfections’, and states that imperfections make you who you are! Together Sarah and Meredith discuss balance, overdone strengths, reframing, seeing the positives and gifts that we all have once we view our characteristics from a different perspective.  This truly is a fascinating discussion around energetics, behaviour, being aware of the self, observing patterns and how by understand yourself more fully you can live a happier and easier life.

061:  Celebrating Imperfection and Progress over Perfection (The ‘Happy Clappy‘ Soundbite)060: Lots of Laughter, Career Insights & More with Harnessing Happiness Podcast Producer Pete - Sarah chats to Pete Allen
Harnessing Happiness with Sarah J Naylor is an upbeat, energetic, and inspiring podcast filled with joy and laughter, wisdom, philosophies, and positive psychology. During this upbeat episode you will get to meet Pete Allen, founder of Carrot Cruncher Media and the fab producer of Harnessing Happiness (he didn’t write this section – honestly!) and you will get to know more about him, his passions, love for production and creating great content for his ever-growing client base. Pete shares details of his life / career to date, that has included 25 years working as a radio presenter and producer, and how although his first love was production he was ‘shoved’ into presenting radio shows instead due to his naturally upbeat personality and great sense of humour. NB / repeat note, Pete didn’t write this section, or pay for it to be written, honestly!  That was until a few short years ago when the local breakfast show he was presenting for Capital FM disappeared, due to its centralisation in London where it is now hosted by Roman Kemp, and Pete took the opportunity to return to his first love of producing quality content instead.  This also enabled him to be himself, and, as you will discover, that involves talking about garden centres, cats and nana naps instead of the latest music trends!  Passionate as he is about podcasts, Pete talks about the personal development journey he has enjoyed indirectly whilst working on the episodes that he produces, not only for Sarah, but his other amazing clients too, as he listens so closely to the conversations between hosts and guests and monologues too. Together they laugh and banter their way through this lively episode which will without a doubt leave you on a high.  Tune in today or download for tomorrow and join in the fun and laughter and have some aha moments along the way! Sarah is naturally engaging, her energy infectious, and whether she is sharing her musings and ramblings about life in general, or having insightful discussions with her guests, as you tune in and listen, your energy levels will rise, a smile will spread across your face as your inner happiness is harnessed.

059: Digging Deep Generates Metaphorical Inspiration  (The ‘Happy Clappy‘ Soundbite)
Harnessing Happiness with Sarah J Naylor is an upbeat, energetic, and inspiring podcast filled with joy and laughter, wisdom, philosophies, and positive psychology. During this upbeat episode Sarah talks about finding inspiration to record these short soundbites and, on this occasion, she references her gardening activities, and uses the clearing and digging as a metaphor for life. Whilst she talks enthusiastically about being outside and the satisfaction that comes from clearing the weeds, she shares how you can apply this approach more generally.  For example, preparing the ground in readiness for planting vegetables and then nurturing and taking care of them is very much the approach we need to take before embarking on anything new – that involves getting rid of the stuff that no longer serves us or will hamper things moving forwards.  And, once we’ve put things into action, taking care of them, be they projects, people, pets, activities, the list is endless with a nurturing and positive approach. It might be gardening related but there is a strong message within to inspire you so grab 10 minutes today, get curious and start thinking about how you can apply this thought process to the things you would like to achieve. Sarah is naturally engaging, her energy infectious, and whether she is sharing her musings and ramblings about life in general, or having insightful discussions with her guests, as you tune in and listen, your energy levels will rise, a smile will spread across your face as your inner happiness is harnessed.

Harnessing Happiness with Sarah J Naylor is an upbeat, energetic, and inspiring podcast filled with joy and laughter, wisdom, philosophies, and positive psychology. Tune in to hear Sarah talk about building rapport, generating conversations, making connections and networking.  She talks about how she discovered, 10 years ago whilst training and qualifying as a performance coach, that she had naturally, and intuitively, been building rapport throughout her years in recruitment.  She highlights the late 1980s when CVs were virtually non-existent, and she had to spend a lot of time building relationships whilst interviewing candidates to obtain detailed information about their jobs, what they wanted to achieve in making a career move and how she applied a similar approach to drawing up job descriptions from clients and a full understanding of their requirements when recruiting too.  In short, both involved finding common ground, being curious, learning about people, their jobs, businesses etc., and obtaining information to enable her to do the job to the best of her abilities.  Tune in and take note as Sarah encourages you to be curious, to ask questions and naturally develop conversation with others to build rapport and great relationships as a result.  Sarah is naturally engaging, her energy infectious, and whether she is sharing her musings and ramblings about life in general, or having insightful discussions with her guests, as you tune in and listen, your energy levels will rise, a smile will spread across your face as your inner happiness is harnessed.

In doing so, she has created a whole new life for herself, one that sees her aligned with her purpose and potential and, of course, being happy. Serena talks about breathwork and spending time breathing in deeply to bring in oxygen to our system – a reset for the lungs, brain, and blood.  As she explains, breathwork patterns are great on so many different levels and that it is having a surge of popularity right now due to it’s benefits and of course once taught, it’s FREE! Together they discuss the benefits of breathing that can be both invigorating and calming depending upon the patterns that are used during exercises, and how and breath work, in conjunction with changes to the mindset work can help improve health and wellbeing.

052: Life, Passions, Purpose, Motivation and SO much more - Sarah chats to Julie Creffield
Harnessing Happiness with Sarah J Naylor is an upbeat, energetic, and inspiring podcast filled with joy and laughter, wisdom, philosophies, and positive psychology. During this inspiring episode you will meet Julie Creffield, an “activator of people” who works as a business growth strategist helping clients grow audiences and build impactful, mission-led businesses.  She also runs, and has done for around 11 years, a plus size fitness business call Too Fat to Run. As you will discover, Julie is down to earth, honest, and authentic in her approach.  She talks passionately about all that she does. In fact, in discussing the variety of work they both undertake Sarah and Julie agree that neither of them wants to be ‘niched’ and put in a box.  They are their own niche! As this episode unfolds you will hear how Julie came to write her book ‘Leading from the Back’ following the most challenging time of her life during the pandemic.  And how when she arrived in Rhodes, giving herself some time out to do so, she burst into tears when she first walked into the sea - her role as a leader in business had seen her holding space for 1000s of business owners and plus size women, including key workers, during the crazy months when the UK was in full lockdown.  It had an impact on her wellbeing too.  Julie talks about leadership, leading from the back and we can all play our part and the social anxieties that have arisen as a result of the pandemic and how even she has struggled going out again socially.  She had ‘forgotten’ how do it! In fact, together they discuss the impact that the pandemic has had on mental health, and fear that has been fed into everyone.  The impact of social media and burn out is covered … Julie shares her back story, growing up in the East End, in a large family with a history of poverty and how wanting to break this cycle motivates and drives her to create a completely different message to her daughter.  You may be surprised to learn that Julie admits that she is not a naturally happy person, she is motivated and driven, is recognised for being funny and humorous but her default, due to her upbringing, is more in alignment with pessimism. That said, she explains how she works to overcome this to live the life she has today.  And for those plus size women out there who enjoy running – Julie has your back! This truly is an insightful episode that covers a wide range of subject matter neatly packed into a 40-minute burst that is guaranteed to inspire you in one way or another.  What are you waiting for?  Tune in and listen now or download for later!!

048: Parkrun Passions, Challenges, and PR Prowess aka Lockdown Success Story - Sarah chats to Eileen Jones
Harnessing Happiness with Sarah J Naylor is an upbeat, energetic, and inspiring podcast filled with joy and laughter, wisdom, philosophies, and positive psychology. During this lively episode you’ll meet Eileen Jones, a journalist with a PR business in The Lake District (UK) and author of How parkrun Changed Our Lives. As you will discover Eileen has been a runner since her early 30s when she used to run and enter fell races all over The Lake District.  That was until she found herself slowing down and no longer competing against anyone, to the point she was the last one back to be checked in by a waiting timekeeper when all other contestants had gone home.  It was around this time that her sister introduced her to parkrun which was a revelation to her – she was a part of something again.  And whilst it isn’t a race she could compete against others if she chose too. She then discovered the excitement / motivation of being a parkrun tourist and went on to set up Fell Foot parkrun and then helped get a team together to run another in Ambleside. Eileen extols the benefits of travelling the country and other parts of the world as part of the various parkrun challenges that are there to motivate and inspire via the 5K app that gathers data from parkrun results.  In fact, Eileen herself was instrumental in suggesting one of the challenges which sees you entering a parkrun with every letter of your name i.e., Sarah would need to run at an event starting with the letter S, 3 different ones with the letter A (you take surnames into account) and so on until you have completed them all, which of course is different for everyone.  Together they discuss the wide variety of challenges, milestones and fun that can be had from this, free to take part in, weekly event that takes place every Saturday. You can hear both Eileen’s and Sarah’s natural enthusiasm bursting out during this episode.  As you listen you will discover how Eileen went about launching her book during lockdown when all the bookshops were closed.  She wanted to get the book to Bushey Park where it all started – she subsequently managed to arrange a relay of over 100 runners over 370 miles to get the book there within 7 days and extols the joy she felt in making these arrangements and seeing it all come together – in fact she states that it was one of the happiest days of her life when she was able to present the book to Paul Sinton-Hewitt and his wife at the end of the relay.    This is a truly inspiring episode that will make you want to reach for your trainers and head off to your local parkrun, get hooked and become a tourist completing the wide variety of challenges that are out there to inspire and motivate you.
