What does engagement actually mean? And is it that important?
I realised a couple of weeks ago that engaging with my life and connecting with those around me was really what it is all about. There's a lot of hype around mindfulness and awareness, but what about focused and genuine engagement?
I believe that while awareness lays the foundation, it is only through actually connecting and really engaging with your life - both intrinsically and extrinsically - that magic can be created.
Today's Your Revolution podcast is all about this. Learning to build awareness about your life, from your feelings and thoughts, to your dreams and hopes and all the action in between by truly and wholly engaging with it. Paying attention, putting in effort, striving and taking steps to be better every single day, connecting with those around you and having an impact on the world - this is engagement. And now is the time.
Every single day, our actions and our behaviours need to be a reflection of our passions and our purpose. What do you want from your life? What's it all for? Where are you going? What are you working towards?
How often do you ask yourselves these questions? And how clear are you about the answers?
Episode 54 of the Your Revolution podcast addresses all these questions. Tune in to hear how Jane Erbacher recommends you answer them and how from right this moment you can set yourself on a path towards what it is you really want for your life.
This week on the Your Revolution Podcast, Jane Erbacher addresses the question of contentment.
Contentment is defined as peaceful happiness and for so many of us, this is the ultimate goal: "I just want to feel content".
But what if I asked you if you were content with your life right now? And then I asked you if you were content being content?
For me life isn't simply peaceful happiness or smooth sailing. It's a challenge. It's ups and downs. It's excitement and growth. It's disappointment and pain.
But you don't get stronger or build resilience by staying the same and being content. You get stronger by getting uncomfortable and taking action. You get stronger by surviving traumas and our heartbreaks. You get stronger by wanting more and not settling.
If you're miserable, complaining, afraid or dissatisfied, stop waiting. Take action. Make changes. Don't settle for "content". Live.
This week on the podcast, Jane Erbacher speaks with NYC based Spiritual healer, yoga teacher, nutrition coach and and personal trainer Jaci Pearse.

This week on the Your Revolution Podcast, Jane Erbacher speaks with the incredible Hamish Blake.

This week on the Revo PT podcast, Jane Erbacher talks all things FOCUS.
We live in a culture that values productivity and being busy above all else and as a result the pressure we feel to go go go can be overwhelming.
But how fulfilling is this really? To keep all of our life tabs open requires our focus and our focus requires our energy. When our focus and energy is divided, our results suffer and we wind up disengaged and exhausted.
Improving your ability to focus starts with prioritising that which is most important to you and eliminating the rubbish. Saying no and investing fully equals more commitment to less commitments and more commitment equals more fulfilment.
Everyday of your life is your life. What are you really missing by not paying attention to what is happening right now?
This week on the Revo PT podcast Jane Erbacher speaks with Nathan McCulloch.
This week on the Revo PT podcast, Jane Erbacher talks about all things purpose. Sometimes we can get overwhelmed by the topic of purpose. We feel stuck if we don't have one and afraid that if we do it's not noble enough. Well I'm here to tell you now how you can not only find yours, but feel proud of it and live by it.
The first step is to set out your intentions for your life? What are the core beliefs or values you stand for? What's important to you and why?
Second step is to start living by these intentions every day.
Step three is to strive for betterment every day. In any way how can you be better today than you were yesterday?
This is how we find purpose. This is how we live our lives and this is how we create a lasting impact on the world around us.
What can you do right now that will make your life better? Have a look around. Who do you surround yourself with? Are the people in your life making it better or worse? And how are you contributing to their lives?
Who you surround yourself with says a lot about how much you value yourself. You deserve to be around people who love, respect and value you and now is the time to ensure that you are surrounded with the best.
With the New Year around the corner, nearly everybody is proposing big change for their lives. Resolutions are all the rage but seriously why do we need to wait until then to make our lives better?
Everyday is your life and everyday is your opportunity. What do you want to change? Why do you want to change it? How are you going to do it and what are you waiting for??
Have a listen today to find out how you can start to improve your life right now. Enjoy! And happy new year!

What should I eat? When should I eat it? How much? These are all questions I am asked multiple times a day. The majority of the population has the desire to change their body, yet somehow we keep getting bigger and bigger. Why is this?
Nutrition starts in the head. While short term diets, challenges and detoxes will no doubt yield results, most of these are unsustainable. How about instead of following yet another elimination diet which sets you up for failure, you try something new? Why don't you tune in to what your body really wants and needs and how it actually feels? Our body tells us everything, we just have to have the guts to listen and take action.
Your best body starts right here, but only if you want it.
How do you set about creating your revolution? Is it by focusing on the now? Being mindful, present, grateful and engaged in the now? Or is it by looking forward, setting goals and taking action towards tomorrow?
Have a listen to how you can start living the life you want in a few easy steps while also working towards an even better future.

This guy is awesome and I'm so grateful for his insight and passion.
Are you stuck in your comfort zone and can't see a way out? It's a funny thing our comfort zone because it is actually comfortable, and is comfortable even that bad? Well you tell me.
How would you rate your life? How passionate are you? Are you living intentionally? With purpose? How about your love? Relationships? Your career? Your body? Are you living unconsciously, waiting for 5 o'clock, waiting for the weekends, waiting for holidays?
How do you really feel?
Today's episode is about getting honest. Where are you now, where would you like to be and how are you going to get there?
Right or wrong sometimes life gets in the way of our grand plans and no amount of positive thinking can help. This last week I've been sick, Trump got elected and my computer got completely wiped. Not life-ending by any standards but for some reason I got seriously derailed.
Like an idiot I tried to push through. I ignored the messages my body was giving me - I mean I had things to do! - And as a result I got sicker.
It made me think that when life doesn't go according to plan this isn't always a bad thing! A derail offers us time for us to take stock of our lives and really assess whether where we are going is where we want to be going. It gives us a chance to rest and recuperate and it gives us an opportunity to withdraw from the pressure to always be ok.
All we have control over is our reaction to life and our outlook on life and it's about time that we realised that our reactions don't always have to be positive in order to have a positive impact on our lives.

What is your purpose?
What are you passionate about?
Why are you here? What drives you?
These are the questions I address with each of the guests on the podcast, but what about you? Do you have answers to these questions? Or do they make you a little nervous because you're unsure of why you're here? And if you're unsure, how do you find these answers?
Well today's episode addresses this questions of purpose and its relevance to you.
Purpose by its very definition is a reason for action. For me life is about living. Life isn't about simply showing up aimlessly day in day out, life is about choosing where you will be, how you will live and what impact you will have on those around you and the world. Purpose gives your life meaning and meaning gives your existence life.
Today hear about the 4 steps it takes to finding your purpose and how addressing these will add passion and fulfilment to your life.

This week on the podcast, Jane discusses luck. Is there such a thing? Or is it up to make our own?
Luck is where opportunity meets action and Jane is here to tell you that if you want to be lucky you get to be. Through passion, determination and hard work you get to create the opportunities to have it all.
This week on the podcast, Jane can't stick to one topic so luckily you get a snapshot of three! "Where are you going?", on how Google Maps is discouraging us from not only getting lost (duh), but also looking up and enjoying the journey. This is obviously a pretty clear metaphor for life and something we can learn a lot from. Look up, take notice of the process and don't simply look to your destination.
The second topic explores gratitude and paying it forward. Acting with gratitude and in service to others not only has the power to change our lives but it has the power to change the lives of those around us and even the world!
I hope you like this episode, it's super close to my heart and hope that it encourages you to live better and happier :)
What is the difference between a goal and an intention?
Goal-setting is a huge part of our productivity-based culture, and to-do lists rule our lives. We set our sights on something and we chip away at it, sometimes mindfully and sometimes mindlessly. But do our goals have a strong enough WHY attached to them?
The why in our life is our intention and today's podcast discusses the relevance and importance of living with intent. Why is this important and why an't we live without it. Enjoy!
