Fearne Cotton talks to incredible people about life, love, loss, and everything in-between as she reveals what happiness means to them.

    Ella Mills

    Wellness doesn’t have to mean crystals and spirulina. Ella Mills, who’s been synonymous with wellness as the founder of deliciously ella for almost a decade, feels that it needs to be rebranded to encompass super simple principles like sleeping well and breathing calmly. In this chat, Fearne and Ella share stories of the people in their lives who keep them rational and grounded, as well as talking about why it’s probably healthy to accept that women can’t have it all.

    Meik Wiking

    Meik Wiking

    Some elements of happiness are circumstantial – where we’re born, and our biology – but there are many elements that we personally have control over. Meik Wiking is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute, based in Denmark, and he feels we’d all be happier if we focused more on the smaller choices we can control. That, he explains, is where the Danish art of hygge comes in.
    In this chat with Fearne, Meik explores why policy makers would do well to consider the happiness of their country as an important element of national health – happy citizens are more likely to earn more, less likely need the health service, and more likely to perform random acts of kindness.
    Meik’s books, The Little Book of Hygge, The Little Book of Lykke, and The Art of Making Memories are all out now.

    Jedidiah Jenkins

    Jedidiah Jenkins

    Radical vulnerability is something New York Times bestselling author Jedidiah Jenkins does his best to practice with those around him. As he entered his 30s, he travelled from Oregon to Patagonia by bicycle, and the journey turned out to be just as much emotional as it was physical. One of the things he learnt is that vulnerability breeds vulnerability, that once you share your truth, others will feel safe to share their true selves with you too, and that can only be a good thing. 
    In this chat, Fearne and Jedidiah explore their own experiences of using disembodying as a coping mechanism during difficult or painful moments in life, as well as what they each believe the soul really is.
    Both of Jedidiah’s life-changing books, To Shake The Sleeping Self and Like Streams To The Ocean, are available now.
