Over the past 2 years, I have had the privilege of talking with some of the most influential and insightful voices in the health and wellbeing space. To celebrate, I have released 3 very special compilation episodes at the end of 2019, which happens to also be the end of the decade! In my new book, Feel Better in 5, I split up health into 3 main areas: Mind, Body and Heart. I covered ‘Mind’ and ‘Heart’ in the past 2 episodes of the podcast and in today’s show, the theme is ‘Body’ - we all know that moving our body each day is crucial for our health and our wellbeing - it give us more energy, better creativity, improves our sleep quality and so much more.
In today’s episode, you are going to hear some of the best clips on this topic from my podcast. You will hear from the inspirational radio presenter, Vassos Alexander, on just how unfit he was a few years ago, why he started to exercise and how he has quickly become a really experienced and accomplished runner, the medical doctor, Mithu Storoni, who shares how regularly moving throughout the day helps you to buffer the effects of stress, the neuroscientist, Shane O’Mara, who explains how sitting around all day is exhausting and how movement actually energises us, and how walking can reverse aging in the brain. Then you will hear a clip from one of my most enjoyable conversations so far, with the filmmaker, Sanjay Rawal, who shares how we can approach running and, in fact, all movement, in a completely different way and use it as a pathway to transformation. I then share clips from the science journalist and author, Linda Geddes, on how going out for a walk every lunchtime helps you to strengthen your own circadian rhythm and helps you be more alert, Tony Riddle who shares his view on why humans are currently living in conflict with their evolutionary heritage and why he made the decision to remove all of the chairs from his house and finally, the inspirational, Ross Edgeley, who explains why the most important component for any movement practice is adherence - and why choosing a movement that you ENJOY is so important in terms of sticking to it in the long term.
I hope you will find this an inspirational episode as we move from one decade, into a brand new one. Enjoy!
