There is one of two things that happen when you come out of your doctor’s office and are given a diagnosis. You can either, a) blindly follow their suggestions and mindlessly take the prescribed medication for your aches and pain or, b) you can sit back and ask yourself the most empowering question possible:

 

“What is it that I can actually do to actively move the needle on my own health?”

 

My guest today, Bonnie Flemington, is a holistic nutritionist and a passionate advocate for the management of osteoarthritis — she is also someone who has had to deal with this same question for herself. With her years of experience as a holistic nutritionist, Bonnie has so much practical advice as to how we can decrease inflammation, manage chronic disease, and best of all: do it all from within our own homes while simultaneously managing a busy lifestyle as entrepreneurs or go-getters.

 

In this episode, you will learn Bonnie’s five hacks for decreasing the burden of inflammation in your system, how you can begin to shift your lifestyle and diet to decrease inflammation and pain, her go-to tips for staying on a healthy diet (even if you hate to cook), and the biggest lessons she has learned when it comes to managing a chronic condition and taking control of her health.

My guest today, Mary Hyatt, is a life and business coach. She helps her clients become awake to their feelings; aware of their thoughts, patterns, and habits; anchored in feeling confident in who they are; and aligned with identifying their voice and desires.

 

What I loved most about the conversation Mary and I had today were her teachings and insights around how we, as women, can harness the power of our emotions in the work that we do as parents, entrepreneurs, and go-getters in this world. Mary shows through the work that she does that we do not need to numb out, suppress, or deny our emotions in order to work harder, better, or more efficiently. The real power comes from harnessing our emotions and leveraging them in what we do.

 

In this episode, Mary shares her personal journey with understanding her emotions and the beautiful transformation she experienced once she understood and acknowledged her emotions and how they showed up in her body. She shares how we can tap into our emotional body, how we can understand and recognize the warning signs before getting to a place of burnout, how we can begin to cultivate self-awareness around checking in with ourselves and our emotions, and how we can learn how to become truly present and true to ourselves.

 

Mary’s words are profound and her insight is incredible. It is truly my pleasure to introduce you all to Mary Hyatt!

[19:47] Mary shares why she thinks some people are afraid of experiencing the full spectrum of emotions that we all experience as humans. She also shares how we can begin to expand our emotional vocabulary and become more in tune with it.

CALL TO ACTION

Experiencing the full spectrum of emotions is part of the human experience. We are more empowered when we can accept and understand our emotions rather than deny them or numb ourselves out. A key tool in taking the first steps to better understanding our emotions is to expand our emotional vocabulary. We are more than just ‘sad,’ ‘happy,’ or ‘mad.’ Mary and I would love for all of you to try and expand your emotional vocabulary by spending time reflecting on the nuances of the emotions you feel throughout your day and journaling them down. Take the time to identify their complexities and acknowledge their existence. And be sure to let us know how this exercise goes for you by following up with us on The Entrepology Collective — because when you’re accountable, you’re helpable!

Jul 7, 2020

The story of my guest today is so compelling and such a beautiful example of how our bodies have the capacity to not only heal physically but heal us on an emotional level as well.


When Amanda Campbell was in her 20s, she had found herself in a hospital bed nearly crippled with multiple sclerosis. Having arrived at that state, she recognized that she had spent the few years previous in denial of her symptoms and the messages that were coming through her body.

 

In this episode, Amanda shares with us the shift in mindset that she had and how she got there, how to access your resilience (regardless of facing adversity), and how she’s been able to leverage these two pieces (mindset plus resilience) in moving forward to build a successful business and help other people overcome difficult situations to live their lives on their terms.

 

It was truly a pleasure having this conversation and I cannot wait for you all to learn more about resilience, how a flexible mindset impacts everything that matters (from our body’s ability to repair to how happy and resilient we are to how connected we feel), and how we can live a balanced life that allows for incredible health and growth both physically and mentally.

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:30] About today’s episode.

[2:35] Welcoming Amanda Campbell to the podcast!

[3:05] Amanda shares her beautiful story and the compelling turn of events with her health and the work that she is now doing in the world.

[14:29] Amanda speaks about what shifted in her beliefs as a result of what she went through.

[16:48] The evolution of how Amanda has come to view the role of her body as a communicator and partner in the work that she does in this world. She also speaks about the evolution of her mindset and the respect she has for her body.

[19:39] How the concept of resilience has penetrated the work that Amanda does when she’s helping other people with respect to their health.

[21:16] Amanda shares her formula for resilience.

[24:25] Is it possible for us to develop resilience and to refine the skills of resilience without necessarily facing adversity?

[26:30] How do we, as parents, instill resilience in our children without putting them through trauma? Is resilience a gift to those who have gone through adversity? How do we make it accessible?

[28:44] How going through adversity has impacted Amanda as a business person as well as accelerate her growth and the work that she’s currently doing in the world.

[31:20] What does Amanda do for self-care now so that she stays mindful of health?

[35:22] When Amanda is working with a client that is going through both physical and emotional ailments, where does she start? Is it always the same place? Or does she prioritize one over the other?

More About Amanda Campbell

As the founder of Bend Like Bamboo, Amanda is one of Australia’s leading experts on resilience, running a leadership program with quarterly exposure to some of the fresh thinking and novel insights into the world of resilience.

 

Amanda believes that flexibility builds resilience. Overcoming adversity, Amanda discovered that a flexible mindset impacts everything that matters — our body’s ability to repair, how happy and resilient we are, and how connected we feel.

 

“How we think and feel and believe is a mirror image of how we perceive our environment, how we will show up when tested, and the health of our body.” — Amanda Campbell

 

With a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis at age 24 and a paralysis at just 29 years old, Amanda was faced with never walking again. She was stretched to her limit, emotionally and physically. With no choice but to succeed and the odds stacked against her, Amanda had to change her mind about what could be possible to create new results.

 

Embracing a balanced approach, Amanda had to embrace uncertainty and change to discover what she was made of. Learning how to walk and run again led to her transforming her mind, body, and life. Now a decade on, Amanda’s passion is to inspire others to embrace their obstacles as an opportunity to awaken their potential whilst maximizing health.

 

Amanda truly believes when given the right environment, the mind and body are capable of producing incredible results. Amanda founded her private practice Bend Like Bamboo in 2013. A year later she co-founded her second startup Nourissh that received funding from VinoMofo with a focus on nutrition. As a proud MS Ambassador, Amanda has built a career speaking about resilience, promoting wellbeing, and potential.
