An example of ABZ framework for goal setting: https…

If there's one task that makes life feel tedious (besides cleaning the toot), it's making dinner. From finding ways to jazz up tired recipes, to cooking on a budget, it's just an exhausting, frustrating process that we're frankly over, big time. But unless you're J.Lo and can afford a private chef (please, god) it's a huge part of life - and annoyi…

Nothing is more contagious than comparison syndrome (or as Mel calls it in this ep, comparison-itis) - you basically catch it every time you go on Instagram. Mel and Josie chat about the type of content that sees them falling deep into the comparison trap and share some methods they use to snap out of it. Join our community, sweetie! Find us on Ins…
 
In lockdown it feels like everyone is either a) attempting to do it sober or b) drinking more to get through it, so in this ep we chat about our own changing relationships with alcohol over the years, changes we've made to our habits during locky d, and reflect on Australian drinking culture as a whole (and how it can be tough to cut out booze comp…
 
Oh my god, we're already at a sex episode! This ep, we're chatting all things libido - normalising the ebbs and flows, the weird pressure we put on ourselves to be having sex all the time, how a bowl of buttery mash potato and a new season on Bridgerton is kinda better than (most) sex anyway, and getting back in the sack after pushing a child out o…
