This week on Bond Appetit, Anna Vocino spoke to Ronsley about the link between depression and diet. On some level all of us can recognise how different foods can make us feel.
Although I may find a big, greasy burger comforting at first, it settles like a rock at
the bottom of my stomach. It makes me feel sick, sluggish and tired. Then my mood changes as I'm now cranky that ultimately I've done this to myself. On the other hand, when I have an acai bowl, heaped with fresh fruit, my stomach doesn't have that heavy feeling. I also feel able to concentrate and not at all lethargic.
“Currently, one in every five Australians each year will experience a mental illness, and prescribed antidepressant use is on the incline. Dietary changes won’t necessarily ‘cure’ mental illness, but they can be a large part of an effective treatment plan.”
“I believe everyone’s threshold of stress is not only on different levels, but also on different sporting fields. The argument of comparing one’s stress to another may actually be the most pointless argument of all.”
On Should I Start a Podcast, Ronsley spoke to Tim Paige, host of ConversionCast about his podcasting journey including;
- The mutual relationships Tim has drawn up in podcasting
- Reaching out, influencing and having a meaningful conversation
- The problems of projecting a personality that’s not really you in podcasting
- The hard times and struggles people have with being conversational
- How to find a real authentic voice by just doing it and letting it happen
