Sarah Jons Hypnotherapist on BBC Radio
Listen to my first radio appearance on the lovely Kath Melandri Show on BBC Radio London last night. What a great experience, especially given that I’ve learned to overcome my fear of speaking in public.
Thank you Kath for inviting me.
A couple of the stories that I discussed
The art of flattery BBC Radio
Interesting article on the website, about how to get what you want with flattery. It doesn’t matter if we aren’t convinced about the sincerity of the flattery, it still has an affect.
It also offers the opposing view, from study at the University of Buffalo that too much flattery, especially within the workplace can backfire. Economist article viewpoint again though counteracts this, and says it’s essential for climbing through the ranks in Business, but it needs to be done in an effective way.
You are never to old to give up smoking
Your’re never too old to stop smoking, and reap the health benefits. and this is something I’m very passionate about in my work as an ex smoker, and also a Hypnotherapist.
The news is peppered every day with news updates on smoking and the impact is has on health. We are so used to hearing stories about it, we stop paying close attention.
Smoking is one of the biggest killers of the century. Cigarette manufacturers have been able to legally poison millions of people for decades without sanction or punishment.
Just last year, according to the World Health Organisation, associated smoking diseases killed nearly six million people, 600,000 of them non-smokers and 80% from low- or middle-income countries.
Most smokers underestimate the risk to their health. Many older smokers decide that they are too old to quit or to benefit from quitting, so they just continue. Because of reverse causality and from seeing deaths of old friends who had quit recently, some conclude that quitting could actually be harmful.
For public health information and education the actual death risk of 1 in 2 should be increased to 2 in 3.
So just as you are never too old to stop smoking, equally you are never too young to quit either.
