Farah’s take home tips on how to start a conversation

  • Be aware of the environment you are creating 

have you eaten or had enough water. The types of conversations can be intense and use up a lot of energy so best be prepared mentally and physically. 

  • Know the intention

Really get to know what the intention is of the conversation, as the other person may not know what you have been through or what you are feeling. Being vulnerable is a way of showing authenticity and honesty.

  • Ask yourself is this the right time

Reassure that this is what you want, and it is the right time to start and be part of the conversation.

In this episode it’s all about ‘Breaks’ and the importance of breaks, and how breaks can make you more productive, efficient and have health benefits. There is a lot of research that supports taking a break throughout a working day that doesn’t involve any work, or personal tasking can improve one’s mood and support wellbeing and reduce stress.  There is also research that supports that multitasking is not as efficient and productive as when focusing on one single task at a time. So spend the next 15 mins solely focussing on the episode.
