    How to Create Positive Body Image

    How to Create Positive Body Image

    Body image concerns are prevalent, so the question is how do we proactively fight against that pressure and foster a body sense of self and in doing so create a positive body image. Should we just stop talking about body image altogether, how far reaching are the consequences of a negative view on ourselves, what role does social media play and how do we change it for our children? We explore all this and much more with body image researcher Nadia Craddock.

    The Flaws of Perfectionism

    The Flaws of Perfectionism

    We so often see perfectionism as a positive flaw but could it be having a detrimental impact on our mental health? We speak to LSE professor Dr Thomas Curran about the rise in perfectionism, the conflict of who we really are versus an idealistic view of ourselves, our increasing focus on meeting unrealistic expectations, the correlation to anxiety, how social media comes into it and how focusing on our self-esteem and purpose can counteract the concerning trends that we’re seeing.

    Simple Tools for Health: Breath

    Simple Tools for Health: Breath

    Over the course of the day we take about 25,000 breaths. It’s a process that is so automatic for so many of us but could it be a missing pillar of health? Today we explore the topic of breathing looking at the history and latest scientific research with journalist James Nestor, author of Breath. We look at the potential power of consciously breathing from the roots of breath in Buddhist, the Chinese Tao and the history of yoga to its links to stress, anxiety, mental health; why we should be breathing through our nose; why breathing less can give us more; how office life stops us breathing and how the little things can have a big impact on our lives.

    Human Kindness

    Human Kindness

    Why should we believe in human goodness? Today we’re exploring the power of human kindness and why the theory that most people are governed by self-interest is possibly totally inaccurate. Our guest Rutger Bregman instead argues that history shows we are fundamentally altruistic and kind, it’s a refreshing, optimistic view of the world that we hope will give you a little hope.

Just the best

Ella surprises me with every single episode. Just when I think that she’s exhausted all topics of interest to me or I go into listening an episode thinking that it’s not very relevant for me, she surprises me yet again with a brilliant topic. Then I of course immediately add the books of her guests to my reading list! I urgently need a holiday to catch up on my reading :) In all seriousness, though, this is a brilliant podcast that I just never get tired of, plus they’re also very open to suggestions for new topics. I also like it that there’s no marketing/product placement in the podcast. I could go on but have to go relisten to the latest episode which was a huge one for me! :)

annekrrr ,

best podcast series ever!

Great guests, interesting subjects - a real pleasure for my ears ;)

Just inspiring !

Love the podcast ! So rich of information, inspiring, makes you want to see life in a different perspective and focus on yourself, self growth and development whilst learning about what is actually good for you and your body! Not just though, we also get some perspective on new start ups/company that work around sustainability, making impact on the environment and society - just gives you a full picture of where society is going, and how fast it grows - so inspiring !!!!
