The Pill: The myths, the truth and our decisions

After 13 years of blind, dedicated devotion Alex quit the pill. Tory quickly followed suit. Why the abrupt turnaround? What did we discover? And was coming off the pill as bad as everyone said it would be?

We’re both about four years post pill and in that time we have learned A LOT about our bodies. We debunk the three big myths surrounding the pill (that we believed for over a decade), recount our individual experiences coming off the pill and more. If you’re a woman on OR off the pill, this is something you will want to hear. – Tory & Alex

So…should you go to law school?

There is a well worn path that many post-uni students have travelled: You’re done with your undergrad and uninspired by the entry level jobs available to you…so what do you do next? Well, why not go to law school?!

We talk about Tory’s experience becoming a lawyer and why immediately upon graduating she decided to move to Australia and leave the law world behind. Was law school worth it? Does she regret her experience? Will she ever return to the bar?!

Tnfld Podcast | Episode 13: Let’s talk about our worries

Or listen via iTunes
Or listen via Spotify

What are you worrying about right now? Is it really something that you can control?

We’ve all got worries and it’s easy to get swept up in them during uncertain times likes these. Talking about our worries is one of the best ways to work through them and to realise they’re probably not as bad as we think they are. We run through some of our recent anxieties and how we cope.

Tools for the anxious mind:

In 2013 I was stuck on a farm in a small town in Australia. I knew I was getting out soon and I knew that whatever I chose to do next would shape my entire life. I was terrified of making the wrong decision and my anxiety was running rampant. I decided to plot out my options as thoroughly as I could and create my own ‘crystal ball’ that would give me a glimpse at my possible futures. Here’s my chart below as an example. Hopefully it can help you too!


Tnfld Podcast | Episode 12: How we manifest

Or listen via iTunes

Our lives have been put on pause and where we are at right now is it (for the foreseeable future).

Your job, your home, your partner, your friends, etc., what you have now is what you’ve got. The question is…is it what you want?

Now is the time to plan for the future. It’s the time for us to manifest.

………………………….

When we first moved up to the Gold Coast, we did a huge manifestation session… we put on some great tunes (Jon & Roy), talked about the 4 pillars we wanted to focus on – Mind & Body, Love, Dharma (purpose) and Home – and then spent several hours pouring out our souls. Here’s some of what came out of that session (and a lot of it has come true already)!
