EP.80 – Balance & other B.S with Felicity Harley

Welcome to the #SPAITGIRL Talk Show with Yvette Le Blowitz

EP.80 – Balance & other B.S with Felicity Harley

Felicity Harley has been a journalist for Australia’s leading women’s publications for two decades, including a nine-year stint as founding editor of Women’s Health.

Author of Balance & other B.S.

She launched and is currently editor-at-large of whimn.com.au. She has appeared weekly on Sunrise for ten years, has hosted TV shows and events and is a speaker on her favourite topic: health and wellbeing.

Felicity was named one of Australia’s 100 Women of Influence for her brainchild the ‘I Support Women In Sport’ campaign.

She lives in Sydney with her husband, Tom, and their greatest achievements, three children. In her, er, spare time, the health aficionado drinks coffee, does yoga, exercises (to stay sane) and cheers on the Sydney Swans.

When Felicity Harley, founding editor of Women’s Health magazine and whimn.com.au, felt really out of kilter, she started talking to other women about their overwhelm.

The floodgates opened. Turns out her girlfriends, colleagues and other mums at the school gate had also been drowning in feminist guilt while trying to keep everything afloat, plagued by perfectionism, riddled with doubt, ruled by screens and hurtling towards burnout.

As we juggle the roles of partner, boss, friend, mother and employee (plus a side hustle), balance has never been more crucial. We’re obsessed with ‘wellness’, yet women’s mental health and wellbeing are in decline.

Using her own experiences, research and insights from leading Australian experts in health, sociology and feminism, and wisdom from smart women like Tanya Plibersek and Fifi Box, Felicity calls out the crap in cult wellness.

In her warm and inspiring way, she shows how you can cut through the B.S. to find clarity in the chaos, offload some of your mental load, and feel truly empowered in the middle of your wonderfully messy life.
