Dr. Heather McKee's Evidence Based Insights

Episode 12: How to live more positively

Despite all the time and energy Charlotte put into ‘fixing herself’ physically through diet and exercise she remained hounded by fatigue, food intolerances, repeated injuries and chronic stress.

Out of sheer desperation and at her doctor’s advice she decided to try meditation.

Interestingly, over the course of a few weeks of mediating she started to feel a whole lot better. This intrigued Charlotte, so she began investigating the science behind mediation to understand why and how these changes were occurring.

Through her organisation Step -inside charlotte shares the key inisghts from her own journey as well as the latest research from the world of positive psychology to help both individuals and workplaces thrive.

In this episode Charlotte details how, she turned a huge challenge into a possibility. She describes exactly how she developed her positive mental health habits and gives some actionable insights into the ways in which you can cultivate these habits in your life, starting today.


In this episode you will learn:

·      How your physical health habits may not be best thing for your mind

·      Why gratitude is a science not just hippie folklore

·      How if we focus on our individual character strengths we can improve everything from our income to our performance at work

·      You will also learn, Charlottes amazingly innovative way of cultivating gratitude every day


Key questions to ask yourself based on this episode:

  • How do you become more in tune with what your mind needs?
  • How can you experiment with ways to take care of your mind?
  • Can you write down 3 things a night that you are grateful for?
  • Or can you write down 3-character strengths that you possess that you are grateful for on a daily basis? For example, I had the courage to send that challenging email, I had the patience to not snap at my child

I’ve been lucky enough to attend one of Charlotte’s mindfulness course and experience first-hand her expert and insightful teaching. And so I was keen to have her come on and share her insights. And you are in for a real treat with this episode as it is full to the brim with actionable insights that not only enhance your mental health but also take no time at all to implement into your life.

What people are saying about The Habit Changer programme:

"You were put in my path for a reason. Over the course of our sessions a light bulb went off with me!!! That’s when it all changed for the better."
- Orla

"This programme is different from everything else you’ve ever done. It wasn’t just loads of advice. I liked learning and thinking about my goals – it wasn’t about someone else, it was about me specifically. We all know what we need to do, we need to exercise more and eat better but this was a different approach, it was empowering. Doing the programme was a light bulb moment for me, it became 100% obvious to me where I had failed in the past and what. I should do in the future. I feel so much more in control of my weight now but not only that I feel stronger, more relaxed and happier."
- Cathy

"It’s a different way of thinking a different perspective. All diets fail this isn’t a diet it’s different. It’s a lifestyle change it helps look at the behaviours behind why you eat rather than just solving the symptoms. It shows you if you take small but deliberate actions what the cumulative changes would be . I certainly feel positive I’m heading in the right direction. This isn’t a quick fix its looking at your motivation – changing your mindset and that helps change your behaviours."
- Colm
