    Compassion, friendships and strong community connections don’t just make us feel good, they can have powerful effects on our health and longevity.

    Today’s clip is from episode 138 of the podcast with Dr Julian Abel - a recently retired consultant in palliative care.
    Julian is joint leader of a project which aimed to end loneliness and improve health in the town of Frome in Somerset. In this episode, he describes the incredible results and explains why social relationships, compassion and a sense of community are so important for our quality of life, our health and wellbeing.
    If we choose to be compassionate, not only is it good for us, but it’s also good for everyone around us. Compassion is more powerful than many of the medicines we have, so let’s help it spread.

    #173 The Voice In Our Head and How to Harness It, with Dr Ethan Kross

    #173 The Voice In Our Head and How to Harness It, with Dr Ethan Kross

    CAUTION ADVISED: Themes of an adult nature.
    Do you have a voice inside your head? For most of us, the answer is a resounding ‘yes’. And we often turn to this voice for guidance, ideas and wisdom. But sometimes this voice can lead us down a rabbit hole of negative self-talk and endless rumination. So, is it possible to take back control and harness the power of this so called ‘inner chatter’? This is the question the award-winning psychologist and guest on today’s podcast, Dr Ethan Kross set out to answer 20 years ago, when he began to study the conversations that we have with ourselves.
    In his brand-new book, Chatter: The Voice In Our Head and How to Harness It, Ethan combines groundbreaking research with real life examples to illustrate how our inner voice controls our life. The language we use about ourselves, he says can be incredibly powerful. Yes, there is negative self-talk. But that same voice can also help us innovate, problem, solve, fantasize, rationalize, and in many ways, help us to shape our identity. It's our inner voice that makes us unique as humans, so rather than silencing the chatter, we need to learn how to harness it.
    If this all sounds intriguing, but too good to be true, rest assured, this conversation is packed with super-practical advice. You’ll find out:
    ·      Why it's not always good to talk
    ·      That sometimes ‘in the moment’ is not the best place to be
    ·      What distance self-talk is and how it can help us
    ·      How to harness the placebo effect
    ·      How to support others through their chatter
    ·      When social media is helpful, and when it's not
    ·      How rituals and awe create control and perspective
    ·      Why you might want to consider putting together your own ‘board of advisors’
    This episode really is full of actionable tips that will help you redirect your inner chatter away from rumination and self-criticism towards reflection and self-improvement. I think this is a powerful conversation and I hope you enjoy listening.

    #172 BITESIZE | Why You Should Change Your Lifestyle With The Seasons | Dallas Hartwig

    #172 BITESIZE | Why You Should Change Your Lifestyle With The Seasons | Dallas Hartwig

    How we eat, sleep and exercise in January should be different to how we do those things in July. We intuitively know this, but have we lost touch with the natural rhythms and cycles of our lives?
    Feel Better Live More Bitesize is my new weekly podcast for your mind, body and heart. Each week I’ll be featuring inspirational stories and practical tips from some of my former guests.
    Today’s clip is from episode 102 of the podcast with nutritionist and author, Dallas Hartwig.
    In this clip he explains why, instead of sticking to the same habits and behaviours year-round, we can learn to live more in sync with the seasons, which has benefits for our health and our happiness.
    Dallas believe that we are becoming more and more disconnected from our natural cycles, and that this is at the core of the modern-day stress epidemic and most chronic disease.
    Dallas gives some great practical tips we can follow to live more in harmony with the seasons. He believes that listening to our own bodies is key – we intuitively know what is good for us if we just take the time to listen.

    #171 How To Change Your Mindset and Transform Your Life with Ryan Holiday

    #171 How To Change Your Mindset and Transform Your Life with Ryan Holiday

    CAUTION ADVISED: This podcast contains swearing.
    Today's conversation takes a deep dive into an ancient philosophy and comes out with some practical strategies that really couldn't be more useful for these uncertain times. My guest is Ryan Holiday, someone who I've been really keen to speak with, ever since a close friend of mine gifted me his incredible book, The Obstacle Is The Way. Ryan is someone who's making timeless ancient wisdom accessible to millions of people all over the world through his books and blogs. And he's making a strong case that stoicism, the ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, is a viable life hack for our busy 21st century lives.
    Whether you are familiar with stoic philosophy or not, I think you'll get a lot of value from today's conversation. Ryan explains that it's not what happens to us in life that really matters, it's how we react to it. We can all learn from unwelcome challenges and, more often than not, become better as a result of them. He also explains how these ancient ideas can be applied to our busy modern lives and how we can use them to build resilience and humility, and how we can use simple tools such as journaling, to help us find more stillness.
    I think you'll find this conversation full of powerful advice and my hope is that you find it engaging, accessible and inspiring.

    #169 Dr Gabor Maté on Why We Are All Addicts

    #169 Dr Gabor Maté on Why We Are All Addicts

    CAUTION ADVISED: This podcast contains themes of an adult nature.
    This week, I’ve decided to re-release a conversation that I had over 2 years ago, yet one that still remains one of the most important conversations that I’ve had to date on this podcast. Since I first released this conversation back on episode 37 of the podcast, the number of listeners has grown exponentially and I’m really keen that all of my new listeners hear this conversation. For those of you who have already heard the conversation, I think you will still get a huge amount of value from re-listening. Dr Gabor Maté is one of the world’s most revered thinkers on the psychology of addiction, his radical findings based on decades of work with patients, challenged by catastrophic drug addiction and mental illness are reframing how we view all human development.
    Dr Maté firmly believes that addiction is not a choice, neither is it all about drugs and illicit substances. Instead, he believes that addiction affects most of us – whether it be to alcohol, nicotine, sugar, work, or exercise…the list is endless. According to Dr. Maté, the source of addiction is not to be found in our genes but in our early childhood. He calls for a compassionate approach toward addiction, whether in ourselves or others. As he puts it, the question we need to ask is not why the addiction, but why the pain.
    We also talk about how we now live in a culture that doesn’t meet our human needs. Indeed, the conditions necessary for healthy child development are increasingly under threat in today’s society. We delve into how our emotional stress can translate into physical chronic illnesses. Loneliness and a lack of meaningful connection are on the rise, as are the rates of autoimmune disease and addiction.
    It was a real honour to sit down and talk eye-to-eye with Gabor about his truly revolutionary work. This was a deep and powerful conversation and I hope it helps you in your life.
