Michelle Keegan on Past Fitness Fails and How She Found Healthy
This week’s episode of Going for Goal is a joyful January catch up between Women’s Health Editor-in-Chief Claire Sanderson and this month’s cover star, Michelle Keegan. The Brassic actress and bonafide national treasure chats about finding her groove with fitness and food - and shares her current workout formula. And while she’s in a great place with her lifestyle now, Michelle opens up about a time when she was training harder, but definitely not smarter. They also discuss the new positive habits Michelle has picked up in 2020 and how the past year has shifted her outlook when it comes to maintaining her relationships with friends and family. Oh, and there’s probably a good few minutes on her favourite snacks, too. So, if you are trying to keep a lid on the amount of between-meals morsels you’re consuming, maybe don’t listen when you’re peckish.

Beauty Special | Three dermatologists on how to get YOUR best skin.
This episode is brought to you in collaboration with Skin+Me. In a brand new episode of the podcast I’m joined by the expert team of consultant dermatologists from Skin+Me; Dr Malvina Cunningham, Dr Ben Esdaile and Dr Jason Thomson.  If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know I’ve seen a marked improvement in my own skin, dealing with the issues of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation since I started using the Skin+Me service. I’ve been so impressed, not just with my own results, but with how easy and efficient the service is.  One of the most impressive qualities of Skin+Me is the expert team of dermatologists behind the brand, which is why I asked them if they’d join me in an episode to answer YOUR questions about all things skin and skincare. In this conversation, Malvina, Ben, Jason and I discuss: * Who can benefit from seeing a dermatologist. * Whether there are there any downsides to long-term retinol/tretinoin use. * The topical ingredients that’ll make the skin look brighter. * Their views on the skin-tightening and anti-ageing benefits of LED. * How to know the difference between rosacea and general redness. * How to tell dry skin from dehydrated skin. * The topical ingredients that’ll support retinol in perimenopausal and menopausal skin. * Why niacinamide doesn’t work for some people and what to use instead. * Whether it’s really necessary to wash your face twice a day if you’re inside all day. * What effect stress has on the skin. * How to deal with maskne, and much more… Please note: this episode was recorded via video call as lockdown restrictions meant we couldn't record in-person so there may be inconsistencies with sound.

Why parenting is generational with Philippa Perry
After reading The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (and Your  Children Will Be Glad That You Did), I knew I had to get Philippa Perry on the podcast. She is a renowned psychotherapist, author, journalist, and television presenter, and the wife of artist Grayson Perry. In this episode she helps us unpack what gets in the way of connecting with our children. She would like children to be able to tell their parents absolutely anything. And, as parents, she says it could be dangerous to close that down. If we can have a strong healthy connection with our kids, the future can take care of itself. We dig into: - How to have connected, trusting relationships with our children (even if we didn't have that with our own parents) - What gets in the way of having a good connection with our kids and what can enhance it - The trouble with not feeling our own pain - The generational cycles of parenting - What does it mean to give our kids 'enough' attention - Authenticity vs perfection parenting - How to help children express anger without acting out There is so much heart and wisdom in this exchange with Philippa. I hope you can feel it too. DISCOUNT FOR THE MOTHERKIND COMMUNITY As you may already know, I’m very excited about our sponsor, Zendium toothpaste. Zendium toothpaste naturally strengthens your mouth’s natural defenses and reduces bad bacteria responsible for dental problems. Parents will be familiar with the battle to get their kids to brush their teeth, but did you know that kids have 3x more taste buds than adults? This makes them particularly sensitive to strong flavours and foaming agents, which can result in difficulties with brushing and too-short brushing times. You may also not have known but your child’s mouth also has its very own natural defences, made up of enzymes and proteins in saliva, that have the ability to protect them from dental problems. All you need to do is head to and enter the code MOTHERKIND at checkout for 20% off their kids and adult range. Big gratitude to Zendium for supporting me and the podcast!

#85 The Brain Series (Part 3 of 3). Transforming your Brain with Dr Tara Swart
What if we could harness the power of our thoughts to change the function of our brain and manifest the perfect life we’ve always wanted for ourselves. You might think I’m talking about new-age self help sensationalism, quantum physics and hype. But I’m actually talking about concepts rooted in ancient philosophy, that are being proven by breakthroughs in neuroscience and neuroimaging. I’m delighted to be chatting with Dr Tara Swart - a neuroscientist, medical doctor, executive advisor, Senior Lecturer at MIT Sloan, and author of best-seller ‘The Source’. A book that distills the principles and actions of how we can harness the power of our conscious mind to alter the world around us. Tara is passionate about disseminating simple, pragmatic neuroscience-based messages that change the way people live and work. She personally advises a small number of individuals via personal recommendation only, and speaks at major conferences globally. Today we talk about: * The field of nutrition, the microbiota and how that has an impact on our thoughts * Ancient wisdom and how this has been gradually explained through the lens of neuroscience * The science explained the “law of attraction” * How to manifest your thoughts into reality * Brain agility and how we train it * Neuroplasticity * Psychobiotics * Brain healthy foods, Brain healthy exercises and Brain healthy thoughts * Why action boarding works * Tara’s personal story of leaving her job, divorce and moving country all at the same time and how she harnessed the power of her mind to maintain resilience “There’s no fate but what we make for ourselves” – The Terminator Do be sure to check out The Doctor's Kitchen Website for full show notes and social media links for this and all our other episodes.   See for privacy and opt-out information.

082 The Personal & Professional Costs of the Menopause - Chris Oglesby & Dr Louise Newson
Chris Oglesby is the chief executive of Bruntwood, which remains a family-owned and run company founded on a belief that its success comes from the success of its colleagues, customers and the communities in which it operates. He works tirelessly helping cities such as Manchester to thrive in many ways including by improving health inequalities, funding research and by supporting cultural and community initiatives. Chris talks to Dr Newson about how his wife, Jane, really struggled during her perimenopause and menopause and how difficult it was for him to watch her experience various symptoms. He also speaks openly about his sister, who also found it difficult to receive adequate help and treatment for her menopause. Dr Newson and Chris explore ways in which menopause in the workplace can be addressed to improve organisations and also about how poor menopause care is a global health problem which urgently needs to be addressed. Chris Oglesby's Three Take Home Tips for employers: * Start with your own awareness, do your research and learn more about how the menopause may affect your staff. * Then you can roll out a programme of awareness within your business to benefit all colleagues, both male and female. * Look at pathways into providing your female staff with high quality treatment and menopause advice.
