How to get out of a funk

Podcast cover
Read more

Been in a weird funk lately.. 

In this episode, sharing what's been happening. Not a very organized episode tbh. But just my thoughts on what to do when you're in a funk. 

I usually start by taking into account of what's been happening - cleaning up my physical space, mental clutter and just daily habits. 

Letting go of things that you're resisting to change and asking yourself big picture questions. 

Lastly, I talk about surrender and going with the flow.

Hope you find it helpful x

Podcast cover

It's been a while. But recently got inspired for a topic. One of my clients and bff's dad passed away in the same week and that really made me ponder on the shortness of life. 

I made a list of things that life's too short for and i even backed it up lol

So basically six things life's too short for, I'm sure if I put my head to it could come up with more but this is what I came up with. 

Life's too short for: 
- not being your authentic self
- doing work you don't really enjoy
- Playing small
- worrying about what others thing
- surrounding yourself with fake people
- being busy to just be busy

Hope you enjoy itttt! And you can find me on insta at @nabeelah.munshi

When it's time to let go

Podcast cover
Read more

Letting go is hard. It's almost like you're diving back in to the unknown etc. I get it. 

In this episode, I talked about when do you know it's time to let go of someone and 3 beliefs that help me make peace with it 

  1. Trust. Trust that if it’s hard and you’re second guessing it. It’s time to let go. If it is somehow meant to be it’ll find its way back. If not, with a heavy heart, you let it go. As Steve jobs says, dots don’t connect looking forward, they connect looking backwards.
  2. Take it as a lesson. Don’t think that this experience was just a waste and this lil tiny scratch on your heart is there for no reason. Find the lesson. Get curious. How can you evolve from this? And what have you learned that you’ll do differently next time?
  3. You don’t know what you don’t know yet. You don’t know what the future holds and it could be massively incredible. And you’ll look back and probably be thankful that you had to go through this because it prepped you for it.

5 mistakes I made in 2021 + Lessons

Podcast cover
Read more

Reflecting on the past year and what my takeaways were. 

In this episode, I talk about 5 mistakes I made in 2021 that you can learn from. Hope it helps you out. 

1. Fell into the trap of hustle culture
Working hard is important. But honestly, A 'good life' has a lot of different components than just working.

2. Lost an epic friend 
I pride myself with how articulate I am. Though, It doesn't equal to having good communication skills.

Learning to actually bring up things that bother me rather than doing dumb sh*t haha

3. Knowing how to make money is one skillset and learning how to manage it is a whole other skill 
You can't be spending more when you make more. Gotta learn to save, invest etc to create wealth. 

4. Abandon myself for someone, always choose you first
I went to therapy for a year to work on my abandonment issues + few other traumas that were specifically affecting my dating life. 

TBH, I just wanna say it really paid off.

5. Being too rigid and strict with my routine & goals
I'm extremely goal oriented. So I wouldn't go off plan or be open for a detour because it feels like a waste of time. 

But I've learned that magic happens in the unexpected detours. So learning to stay open and saying yes to different opportunities.

Creating your perfect day to maximize joy & fulfillment

Podcast cover

How you spend your days is how you spend your life. 

I'm so introspective and intentional haha. But recently, I was feeling a bit stuck or almost like I was low on inspiration which is a very rare state for me. I realized that I need some time off to do some more introspection and re-align myself

I asked pretty big questions and this episode was actually inspired by my roommates question. And how I answered what my exciting life would look like. 

Then I had another epiphany that I can already start feeling that way and take actions that fill up the buckets for my priorities in life each day. 

I also shared a little bit about my move from Spain to Dubai! Hope you enjoy and it get something out of it!

Expanding your consciousness w/James Petrossi

Podcast cover
Read more

Here's a very candid conversation with the founder of PTNL, James Petrossi.

As a 25-year marketing veteran, James Petrossi, witnessed firsthand how a myopic focus on work culture made younger generations struggle with their own identity as they navigated the corporate landscape. And when he saw just how many seemingly successful, celebrated business leaders, like himself, were left feeling unfulfilled in the long run, James knew there was a significant disconnect that needed to be addressed. 

So he left. He left the advertising world and went on a quest to find WHY employees are unfulfilled, addicted to technology and unsure of who they really are.

Now, as the founder of PTNL and as a researcher on human connection, James aims to help HR leaders, workforce management professionals and CEOs battle the oversaturation of technology in order to fight the disconnect many employees feel. His new book, Know Your True Self, teachers readers to: 

  • Find the interaction between human consciousness and technology in order to establish work/life balance
  • Identifying the skills needed to rewire the brain and create new healthy habits at work and in life
  • Breaking down self-awareness in order to better manage emotional distress

Check out our conversation on mindfulness, unconditional love and so much more. Hope you enjoy x

Listen to this if you're in a funk

Podcast cover
Read more

There's something in the air these past weeks. I swear anyone I talk to tells me their feeling off

and that kinda reminds me that this is life you know. You have highs and lows. 

And the lows are uncomfortable and you want to shake them off very fast. I get it. but uhh, have to learn to deal with them more effectively. 

In this episode, I shared 3 reminders that I usually tell myself when I'm in a funk. 

1) I try my bestest to sit with it and not avoid. Sometimes I'll try to avoid it by planning things or going out or something but I've learned the feeling doesn't go away. So I guess it's more efficient to actually feel it and ask yourself why you're feeling this way? and what you need right now

2) I'll shift my perspective of the problem. and think about what I can learn from this? or how is this actually serving me in some way. 

3) I'll remind myself that I'm not alone in this! It's super human to feel sh*t feelings :) so that's that. 

Hope you enjoy!

Expanding into your complete self

Podcast cover

Always blown away by how you can literally keep growing. You might not be aware of the roles you play that actually keep you away from being yourself. 

Recently came across this huge realization of how I've been always playing a savior. I also talk about the victim mentality and how it's something that triggers me if I see it in other people. 

I talk about the Drama triangle and how you can use it to observe the role you're playing and eventually change the script. Also, how it presents itself in different areas of your life. 

May it be your business or relationship. 

I talk about how you can identify and consciously make a better choice!

Does law of attraction really work?

Podcast cover
Read more

Yes, it works! I can't for sure guarantee HOW?

But so far, my life is legit a living miracle haha 

How do I ever get to live this life as a Pakistani woman. I really couldn't tell you. 

The more I think about how I got fortunate to be living so freely and traveling to all these countries. Plus, meeting all these people. 

It somehow really feels like maybe I manifested. This is how I actually got into learning more about it. 

And I have consciously created things in my life. Though, I don't have the concept perfectly down lol 

Sometimes I'll still question a lot of things and the concept of 'higher power'. BUT, lately, there's been some changes and I just want to share them with you because maybe you can resonate. 

In this episode, I'm just sharing my thoughts on 'higher power' and law of attraction! Hope you find it useful! :)

Best Unsolicited Dating Advice

Podcast cover
Read more

Dating. I really want to but OMG, it's so annoying in this era to be honest.

I recently had convos with 3 friends on consecutive days telling me about their relationship. And I (the single one) was giving them advice. 

While I was giving them this amazing advice, I realized I currently wasn't taking it myself.

Like oookaaaayyy 'Don't settle for anything, there's probably a lot better guys out there too' hahah 

But really compiled most of my dating wisdom into this episode. THAT I AM TAKING MYSELF. 

I think dating someone/being in a relationship should ultimately make you feel good and supported. Well, also you need to feel that spark. 

However, did my best at this topic cause it's been a theme lately. Hope you enjoy!

What makes a 'good life'?

Podcast cover
Read more

'I don't want to grow old and regret. Feel like I wasted my life. Or I did it wrong' said my friend

This made me think a lot. And I realized that I'm finally at a stage of my life where I feel like I'm doing exactly what I was meant to be doing. 

I feel so aligned and good, that I didn't know it was possible. 

I shared 3 aspects that make my life 'good'. Like I feel I wouldn't want it any other way. 

I feel deeply fulfilled and at peace. Even though, it's always a journey and I'm sure it can get even better. 

Most importantly, I think finding peace within yourself is the key. This is a very random episode lol but I'm sure it'll give you an AHA moment. 

Or the courage to just follow your gut. Because I think things just fall in place when you just do things that spark joy or feel good to you. 

Hope this helps!

Breaking barriers to love

Podcast cover
Read more

You want it but it's so hard to give and receive. 

I've always been fascinated by this concept. Okay, love is real. But I meant to say romantic love. 

I also get that it kinda fades away. Tbh, I'm pretty confused by this topic altogether because it doesn't have an answer. 

However, I love exploring it. And also, the fact that we're so excited about it when we're younger but lose hope when we get older. 

And also, talked about how we build barriers to love and how healing traumas can help us overcome that. 

This episode is pretty open ended and philosophical as I don't really have a concrete answer :) 

But if you've been thinking about this, maybe it'll give you some more perspective and a laugh. 

Thanks for listening!

3 reminders for life transitions

Podcast cover
Read more

Life happens. ALL THE TIME. There's so many things that can happen that change the course of your life. 

Especially when you're at a crossroad where you don't have a clear path in front of you. 

I'm currently going through something major and when I was talking to some of my friends, I realized they were too. 

Here are 3 reminders to keep you grounded in this time of transition. Big or small. :) 

1. When things don't work out, maybe secretly they are working out.

2. Today is just as important as any day in the future.

3. Do your best and then trust the universe, things that are meant to be usually unfold easily. 

Hope this was helpful! It'll definitely help you feel less anxious and more hopeful about whatever transition period you're currently going through. Also, threw in my recent EMDR experience.
