Goooooood morning you lovely lot. It’s the last in the series of Happy Place so it had to be a good one! (A new series to follow shortly😉) @nadiyajhussain talks so eloquently about her life on this episode. A thoroughly enjoyable chat. So many subjects covered but you really get a sense of Nadiya’s strength and dynamism in the face of adversity. What a woman! A massive thanks to @rightmoveuk for sponsoring this series of Happy Place and of course a huge thank you to you brilliant lot for the continued support and feedback. The feedback i read on here and podcast platforms enables us to get the content right for you and to keep making a series that I adore creating.

Well Far

View this post on Instagram

PARIS MARATHON ✔️ – so I’m feeling pretty proud of myself RN. I went out today and gave it my best without being unkind on my body. I ran by what felt good, fuelled right and did LOADS of positive self talk – I’m more proud of that than my time…I think focusing on what was going well and this bloody beautiful city (soz London but this course is 👌🏻) was what kept me going. _ We’re so quick to talk to ourselves negatively and focus on the bad stuff (I do it all the time) so today when it got tough or I wanted to cry I just shook it off and zoned in on what was going right: id been running for 3 hrs, I hadn’t been sick, I was still smiling. _ If that sounds a bit nauseating soz. But honestly, here’s to making ourself proud and more positive talk. _ Now, where’s the rosé _ And for those asking about my time you can look it up if you really want. My race number was 37525 – I ran a PB by 9 mins. #wellfar #parismarathon #parismarathon2019

10% Happier with Dan Harris

Newsman Dan Harris turned to meditation after having a panic attack live on Good Morning America.

A listen will leave you feeling calm, reflective and motivated.

He realised there were some big deficiencies – an area which hadn’t been addressed in his medical training – and set out to address them. Not only did this stop the cardiac episodes, it signalled the start of a second career for Dr Rupy, one which focuses on food as medicine. In his podcast The Doctor’s Kitchen he draws on the latest research to offer actionable tips surrounding health and nutrition.
