The Couragemakers Podcast | Encouragement, Inspiration & Rebel Rousing for Mission Driven Doers, Makers & Shakers |

Couragemakers is the weekly podcast for creative and multi-passionate women. Because building the life you want and putting stuff in the world takes a boatload of courage, but you don’t have to do it alone. Couragemakers is designed to encourage and rebel-rouse mission-driven doers, makers and world-shakers to spark a movement of women who are choosing themselves. Every Monday, Meg chats to unconventional couragemakers all over the world who share their stories, their advice and their dreams as we have honest conversations about everyday courage, living a wholehearted life and dream chasing. We’ve figured out what we don’t want in life, now we’re figuring out what we do want. And we talk about the things that make us feel on fire as well as the monsters that hide under our beds. Couragemakers is brought to you by Meg Kissack of That Hummingbird Life. Because everything changes when you believe you matter. Let’s shake things up together. Warning: This podcast contains courage, vulnerability and a desire to leave the world a brighter place than how we found it.

Hello Couragemakers!

It's good to be back! This week I've got a special episode for you as I've teamed up with the mental health charity CALM and CALM ambassador Shareefa J to mark Mental Health Awareness Week. We're diving into all things mental health, self-kindness and how courage is courageous. 

Shareefa J is a London based presenter and plus size model. She is at the forefront of promoting body/race diversity and mental health awareness within fashion and advertising. She’s an ambassador for the mental health charity CALM.

Her last campaign was featured in Marie Claire & Buzzfeed.

If you struggle with your mental health, and find it hard to talk about, if you ever feel alone or like you’re a burden and if you simply need a dose of self-kindness, this is the episode for you.

Heads up that in this episode we do briefly discuss suicide, so if you need to skip this episode, please do. Look after you first.
