Former doctor, and author of 'This Is Going To Hurt' Adam Kay is this week’s guest. After six years in the medical profession, Adam moved on to a career in writing, and in response to the 2015 junior doctors contract dispute, turned his medical journals into what became a Sunday Times bestseller. 'This Is Going To Hurt' sold an incredible 2.5 million copies, making it the bestselling nonfiction title of the decade. His stories are now being adapted into a BBC drama, starring Ben Whishaw. In this episode, Adam shares his thoughts on the outpouring of love for the NHS since the pandemic, he tells Katie all about his new children’s book ‘Kay’s Anatomy’, and he shares what happened when he finally faced Jeremy Hunt.

How to make your peace of mind a priority with Sheri Riley
Sheri Riley says that peace is the new success and we need to make it our highest priority. I absolutely love that and I’m so pleased she joined me for such a powerful and uplifting conversation on the Motherkind podcast. We think that pursuing peace means that we need to calm down or slow down. She says the opposite is true and that the power of peace is what is going to enhance our lives and fill the void. Real, internal, palpable, and substantive peace. I could list a dozen more bullets about what we dug into, here are just a few: - Sheri's breakdown to breakthrough - How Sheri did a 360-degree transformation of her life - How to put interconnectedness and calm first - Why is peace the new success - How do you stop putting 100% of your time on 10% of who you are expecting 100% of your fulfillment - How do you love the career you have and your life Big gratitude to Zendium for supporting me and the podcast.
