Big G, Hadrian & The 5 ways to well-being

Season 4 Episode 9

Welcome P-Soupers. This episode is a surprise interlude, it's a bit of slow radio with an important message about well-being too. Hear me chat with my Dad, Big G, on one of his daily walks, where he's recreating his previous walk along Hadrian's Wall, to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Here's Dad's introduction

"I thoroughly enjoyed walking to remember Lou throughout May. Now that I am addicted I am going to emulate my 2005 challenge when I walked the Hadrians Wall Path for Cancer Research.
At 86 years old I can't manage the rugged terrain of the Hadrian's Wall Path - so I'm going to walk the same distance, bit by bit, on my regular morning walks.
I estimate that I walk approximately one mile a day on my morning walks. So the challenge is to complete 84 morning walks for Cancer Research. Your support would be most appreciated, thank you."

In the conversation, Dad also provides a live and brilliant example of the five ways to well-being.

Thanks for Asking

Season 4 Episode 7 

Hi P-Soupers, thanks for tuning in –this week it’s another cup-a-soup called Thanks for Asking. I want to build upon last week’s episode - GETTING CURIOUS - where I suggested one way we could ask colleagues about their experience of work - so in this episode - I’m going to answer that very same question based upon my personal experience.
My suggested conversation openers were:
“I’m curious how you experience this workplace, would you be willing to share?”
OR
“What’s it like to be you in this workplace?”

Getting Curious

Season 4 Episode 6


P-Soupers – thanks for tuning in –this week it’s another cup a soup with me called 'Getting Curious' - I want to build upon last week’s episode - perspectacles - and really consider how we can get curious about how other people experience the workplace. As I said in perspectacles - we’re can’t hear each other’s internal soundtracks - we don’t know our colleagues work song - and I’m going to draw upon evidence from psychologist, Sarah Bonner and an organisation called Blueprint for All.
