Hope, Happiness and Mindset

with Turia Pitt

Episode 15: Hope, Happiness and Mindset


Our Tits Up guest today is Turia Pitt  and we are talking about ‘Hope, Happiness and Mindset’.

Ultra marathon runner and coach, bushfire survivor, mining engineer and Mum… inspiring just doesn’t say enough!

Turia and Pinky swap life stories ranging from co-sleeping to toxic optimism on social media, from accepting to requesting help, from good self-talk to just letting yourself feel shitty sometimes.

“Happiness is not a destination, it’s a journey” Turia says. “And it’s no different to other emotions – it comes and goes.” She is all about enjoying simple pleasures, achieving a day at a time and notes that making time for yourself improves mood and makes family life easier.

Oh, and don’t forget to listen out for the ‘Peppa Story’!
