Episode 4// Becoming Your Own Hero with Yasmin Sykes

In this episode, you’ll hear from local Newcastle babe, Yas Sykes. We unravel her life struggles and celebrate where she finds herself today.

“If I had just given up, I wouldn’t have realised, even at 38, I can change and become a better version of me”.

Key obstacles we discuss;

  • Exercise feeling like a ‘chore’.

  • Doing what you’re good at, not what you love to do.

  • Shutting down out of fear of rejection.

  • Moving through bouts of anxiety and depression.

  • Self-harm.

  • Filling up the cups of others first.

  • Mom guilt.

  • Worry and over-analysing big emotions and feelings.

  • Perfectionism and the all or nothing approach (fear of failure).

  • Body Image.

Key wins we discuss;

  • Opening to life and love, with trust.

  • Creating a better ‘her’ for ‘them’.

  • Becoming an avid strength-training lover.

  • A profound willingness to create change.

  • Losing weight doesn’t fix life’s problems.

  • Meditation, as a work in progress.

  • Self-kindness.

  • Taking responsibility for where you are.

  • Never giving up.
