    139: Are you sacrificing your happiness? with Raj Raghunathan

    139: Are you sacrificing your happiness? with Raj Raghunathan

    On today's podcast, I have the brilliant bestselling author of If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Happy?. This book is a really juicy one and brings up a lot of food for thought that I think will resonate with a lot of you listeners. So I'm looking forward to speaking with Raj Raghunathan today. Raj earned his PhD from the Stern School of Business at New York University and is currently employed as a professor of marketing at the McCombs School of Business, the University of Texas at Austin. Raj's work juxtaposes theories from psychology, behavioural science, decision theory and marketing to document and explain intimate relationships.
    Raj wrote his book as a result of discovering that many of the smartest, brightest, most successful people were profoundly unhappy. Raj set out to find an answer to this problem, and extensively researched happiness not just of students and business people, but also stay-at-home-parents, lawyers, and artists, among others. His research is fascinating and I can't wait for you to hear his wisdom on the podcast!

    138: Why embracing balance is essential to a healthy life with Jessica Sepel

    138: Why embracing balance is essential to a healthy life with Jessica Sepel

    On today's show, I'm joined by a supplement goddess, the amazing Jessica Sepel, who is a triple bestselling author and founder of JS Health Brand App and JSE Health Vitamins, range of supplements, skin care and haircare. Jessica's passion for supporting people's health and her knowledge and experience has allowed her to create a range with attention to every ingredient, quality and combination in order to care for you from the inside out.
    Jessica displayed a passion for supplements from a young age after watching both her grandparents take them daily, which led her to delve into the vitamin world and become incredibly interested in nutrition from the age of 15. After overcoming her own struggles with fad dieting to find balance and body love, Jess focused her life in cultivating holistic health. She's a driving concept behind JS Health, and she wants to develop formulas that target common problems to help bypass the overwhelming confusion of the supplement industry.

    137: What you might not know about food with Professor Tim Spector

    137: What you might not know about food with Professor Tim Spector

    My guest this week is an absolute hero and legend in the medicine and nutrition world. I'm talking to Professor Tim Spector, who is a professor of genetic epidemiology at King's College London, Director of the Twins UK study and one of the world's leading researchers in gut microbiome.
    Professor Tim Spector is the Director of the British Gut Project and his research has transformed our knowledge of food and health. He's also the author of two books, The Diet Myth and Spoon Fed: Why Everything You Know About Food is Wrong. The amount he's done for furthering the understanding of health is so phenomenal. He could have already retired and never lifted a pen again. So that's why his new book is quite groundbreaking. It's called Food Is Life and his latest research is beyond excellent. I have never read a more comprehensive guide on the truth behind our food. His new book is really a food Bible, if you will. It discusses absolutely everything and looks into the research behind these claims. I highly recommend it!

    Pop of Wisdom: The art of self-healing with Katie Brindle

    Pop of Wisdom: The art of self-healing with Katie Brindle

    Today, I am honoured to be joined by Katie Brindle, a Chinese medicine practitioner, a bestselling author and the founder of The New Method. Katie's book, Yang Sheng: The Art of Chinese Self-Healing, teaches readers how to harness this powerful natural healing system and how these techniques work brilliantly in modern life. My favourite principle of Yang Sheng is balance, and that means not being perfect, something we all know I'm a big advocate for. Katie is a proven example of the power of Yang Sheng to heal ourselves from the inside out. And I'm so pleased that she will be here to share actionable tips on how to bring these practices into your life and discuss the difference they can make to your mental and physical health.

    136: Move the body to heal the mind with Dr Jennifer Heisz

    136: Move the body to heal the mind with Dr Jennifer Heisz

    On today's podcast, I have the inspirational Dr. Jennifer Heisz who is an expert in brain health. She directs the Neuro Fit Lab, which has attracted over 1 million to support her research program on the effects of exercise for brain health. Dr. Heiss received a PhD in cognitive neuroscience and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in brain health and ageing. Dr. Heisz says research examines the effects of physical activity on brain function to promote mental health and cognition in young adults, older adults and individuals with Alzheimer's disease.
    Dr Heisz has also written a book called Move the Body, Heal the Mind where she reveals groundbreaking research on how fitness and exercise can combat mental health conditions such as anxiety, dementia, ADHD, and depression and offers a plan for improving focus, creativity and sleep. She also mentions that exercise's anti-inflammatory properties make it the most effective treatment strategy for those who are depressed and don't respond to anti-depressants.

    135: Change your thinking to transform your health with Max Lowery

    135: Change your thinking to transform your health with Max Lowery

    Welcome to this episode with Max Lowery, who is becoming iconic in the fitness industry with his unique method of training the mind and the body for greater health.
    I can certainly testify to going through times in my life when I've had a fraught relationship with food, and we don't necessarily talk about these self-limiting beliefs enough. It's so easy these days to have an uncomfortable relationship with something we have to do to live. We're either told to eat this, not to eat that, or eat more of this. So I'm delighted to be talking to Max today about long term behaviour change and how we can work towards a healthier and happier life from both a mind and body perspective.
