Some people find it hard at the best of times to find their creativity or keep up producing work at a high quality level. Imagine doing it with a condition that makes you feel like your body is on fire.

In this episode we have a chat with Cornel about how he handles his auto-immune condition – Ankylosing spondylitis and lives his life to its fullest and what happens between his plans that has been the most important factor.

Some little pearls from our chat:

The importance of movement

Mixing up your movement to help keeping the inflammation at bay

  • Walking
  • Cycling
  • Pilates
  • Yoga
  • Even fun things like skipping, trampolining and hula hooping.

Even though it sounds counterintuitive when flared up and all Cornel wanted to was rest. The only thing that would help his inflammation was to move.

Never give up on trying to make yourself feel better

Doesn’t mean you need to find that river bullet.

Gut health

Finding what foods would flare up his condition was also key to helping

Ep. 022 – Knowing your worth – The Self-Worth Movement w/ Farah Mak The Let me take a Selfie Podcast

Initially the self-wort moment was created from a poem Farah wrote called she shines which was love letter to herself and a call to arms. Farah even had a vision to turn the poem into a short film, knowing she could touch and change many lives. After years, her vison came to light with the short film now in pre-production as well as a feature film around multiple stories to be released in 2022. Self-worth can be stifled by many things; trauma, abandonment, bullying, sickness, grief and so much more. Through Farah’s road to self-validation was not easy. Regaining her self-worth was transformational. It helped her achieve hopes and dreams, and she wants to share this with women and girls around the world and to empower and understand their true worth.   For show notes, visit: https://benjaminrashleigh.com/ep-022-knowing-your-worth-the-self-worth-movement/
