COURAGE CHAT #3 You’ve Got What it Takes – – you’re going to discover if you’ve got what it takes to do tricky things (I already know you have!).
COURAGE CHAT #2 Getting Ready – – you’re going to find out if you’re really ready to get tricky and feel prepared to face anything that comes your way.
COURAGE CHAT #1 Getting Tricky With It – – let’s talk about all things tricky. Whether that’s making it through Corona Craziness, doing hard homework, sitting a test, public speaking, staying away from home for the first time, joining a new club, learning a new sport, speaking up in class…whatever it is that feels tricky to you (and we all have tricky things).
You can do anything even when life gets tricky. Tricky times (hello Coronavirus), tricky things (starting something new or doing something for the first time) and I guess we could probably add tricky people into the mix. Life is full of trickiness, but when we believe in ourselves and we believe that we can handle anything life throws our way, it feels less scary and more peaceful. As the drama of the Corona Crazy unfolds, I want to help you feel as peaceful as possible.
What happens outside of your comfort zone? All the good stuff – this is where all the exciting parts of life are, This is where we grow our confidence and learn more about the world and our place in it. This is where our dreams come true and how we reach our full potential. It’s why we are all here! So why then, do only 2% of the population step outside of their comfort zone and live their best life?
What would your life feel like without all those worries? Wouldn’t it be lighter, freer and feel so much easier! Of course, it would! In today’s episode, I’m going to share with you some things that I think everybody needs to understand about their worries so that they don’t take over your life.
This is workshop for podcast backstage pass holders. The workbook is in your downloads.
It’s a full moon in Aquarius which means it’s time for a little ritual. We won’t do the moonwalk like Michael Jackson! We’re going to let go fo the drama in our lives and the people who make it.

It’s been a funny old year, so I think it’s about time we had some fun around here. Welcome to Smiley’s Big Summer Quiz. Are you ready?
Conflict resolution is an essential life skill. Conflict can be helpful as long as everybody fights fair. When people talk about things that upset or bother them openly, honestly and with kindness, they learn more about each other. This strengthens their bond. We want to improve our relationships, not hurt, hate or upset one another. Most conflicts are not meant to hurt on purpose and many are simply power struggles. Today, I’m going to talk to you about healthy conflict and how you can make that a sure thing in your homes and schools.
During the summer, families have more free quality time together. This can be a blessing or a curse depending on how you look it or what being together as a family means. Quite naturally, there can be lots of conflict, boredom and less time for you to decompress. In this mini-training I want to help you feel confident and prepared for the summer holidays, so you can really make the most of them.
What happens in your family when people disagree? Do you respect and calmly discuss your differing thoughts, feelings, opinions and ideas? Or do things often get to boiling point. Is there a big power struggle about who is right or wrong? Do people get told off and punished? Does anybody get hurt? Conflict is an important part of all human relationships. Not all disagreements have to be angry, sulky or scary. Let’s talk about that some more.
Words are powerful! They carry energy and they can build us up or they can bring us down. Grow your empathy and learn to think before you speak! Play a fun game and learn how your brain assigns meanings and memories to words. Become a scientist and discover this amazing experiment where you’ll get real proof that words can really have an effect on us.
The way you start your day really sets the tone for what’s to come. Do you start slow and feel ready for the day ahead?
Or are you rushing about stressed – not able to enjoy it for fear of being late or forgetting something?
Today I’m going to share with you how you can make mornings more enjoyable and less stressful. I want you to start your day with a smile! Not one on your face – that would be nice, but even if you’re grumpy in the morning, you have an inner smile that you can activate.
This one is a really exciting episode. We’re going to talk about the force. That’s your energy field or aura. We all have one and we have the power to change it. Want to learn more? You’ll need a piece of paper, some coloured pens. Find a quiet place to get comfy and listen in.
Br-ring-ring! ‘Hello, this is the boredom hotline, Smiley speaking how can I help you?’ If you’re sick and tired of being at home, or feel like you might be going a little cray cray, why not call the boredom hotline. Smiley wants to help you with that. So if you’re fighting with each other, or feel fed up and don’t know what to do with yourself, we can use that as a chance to dig a bit deeper and see what’s going on.
As part of my new daily Coronavirus routine, I can only go outside to exercise once a day. Have you been moving your body and getting out in nature? We’re so lucky in the UK that it’s sunny here right now.
I’m going to take you with me – let’s enjoy a sunny walk and a talk together! I also wanted to check in and see how you’re getting on. I’m not going to tell you too much as I don’t want to spoil our adventure together. I hope you enjoy it!
The Coronavirus has become a global pandemic and changed our daily life as we know it. The planet has slowed down, the schools are shut and people are being asked to stay at home. With all this time on our hands, can we turn this to our advantage or are we drowning in a sea of worry and feeling stuck with nothing to do. Let’s have a chat about that.
Life is full of unknowns and uncertainty. It really helps to know how to navigate unchartered territory without letting fear overwhelm you. It’s true to say that we all suffer with a little self-doubt sometimes. What if it doesn’t turn out okay? Am I making the right decision? What if I get it wrong?
What if there was a secret sign language that could help us find our own way without having to ask 100 people on social media or all our friends in the playground? In this episode, I’m going to show you a little Smiley trick that helps you tune in to your inner voice and find your way.
