How to handle Shaming?
We all have our own insecurities. Whether we deal with insecurities regarding our weight, our socioeconomic status, our physical appearance, or our job, we all experience the emotions associated with feelings of being insecure. What can only make our personal insecurities worse, is when other people take advantage of them. When an individual highlights our weaknesses, especially in a public setting, it can become a person’s greatest fear. Listen to this episode where I have discussed the ways to cope or deal with it. I hope this helps. See you soon. Jai Hind Vivek
#291 Tim Spector: The Latest Science on Gut Health (and How To Find The Right Diet For You)
For the last in the current series of Feel Better Live More, I’m welcoming back someone I know you’ll love. Professor Tim Spector was my first-ever guest, and he returns for the third time today, with the very latest on gut health and personalised nutrition.Tim is a professor of genetic epidemiology and Head of the Department of Twin Research at King’s College London. He’s a world-leader when it comes to the gut microbiome – and Director of the British Gut Project – whose research has transformed what we know about food and health. Tim is author of two excellent books, The Diet Myth and Spoonfed: Why Everything You Know About Food Is Wrong.This conversation will bring you up to date with all Tim’s most recent findings and practical advice. But don’t worry if you’re new to the subject of gut health, as we also provide a need-to-know guide to get you up to speed. We start by discussing why gut health is such a hot topic. Tim explains that, unlike our genes, it’s something we can influence, thereby improving not just digestion but almost all aspects of our wellbeing. He reveals the gut-friendly properties of plant fibre, polyphenols and fermented foods. And because diversity is key, Tim shares some of his own food hacks for getting to 30 different plant foods a week.Tim believes the obesity crisis is more of a food crisis, fuelled by ultra-processed foods. We discuss a move towards counting quality instead of calories, and why the new mandatory calorie labels are unhelpful for most people. We also talk about personalised nutrition and the revolutionary PREDICT studies, carried out for Tim’s ZOE nutritional science company, which found people can have dramatically different biological responses to the same foods. The results have led him to develop a personalised nutrition testing kit and app that you can try too. Our conversation covers much more, including the benefits of time restricted eating for gut health, why skipping breakfast isn’t bad for you, and the pros and cons of health trackers. Tim also reveals the gut parasite that 1 in 4 of us have, which rather than making us ill, can actually have huge benefits for our health.This is a fascinating conversation; full of practical and actionable information. I hope you enjoy listening.Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.boncharge.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemoreShow notes https://drchatterjee.com/291Order Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpDISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

#289 How To Overcome Fear and Achieve Your Dreams with Lisa Bilyeu
CAUTION: This episode contains mild swearing.What’s holding you back from pursuing your dreams? What if the ‘when’ you’re waiting for never comes? Today’s guest believes confidence is a by-product of taking action – and she wants you to take action now.Lisa Bilyeu is a British-born but now American-based entrepreneur who co-founded the billion-dollar company Quest Nutrition. She also hosts a weekly YouTube show, Women of Impact, and is the author of the brand new book, Radical Confidence. It’s a lively and inspiring read – part memoir, part self-help manual for anyone who wants to rewrite their own script and overcome ‘the purgatory of the mundane’. In this conversation, Lisa explains how she went from being a supportive, stay-at-home wife to husband Tom (Bilyeu, who you may remember from episode 110) to someone in hot pursuit of her own dreams. Being a housewife for eight years was an arrangement she and Tom agreed on, to enable him to make their fortune. But with time, her gratitude for their comfortable life was holding her back from fulfilling her potential. She explains how her own ‘radical confidence’ came as the result of taking a risk and trying something new.  I think that’s such a powerful way of looking at it, that confidence is a consequence. It’s a useful way of seeing so many areas of life where we might be telling ourselves we can’t change, be it losing weight, getting fit or getting that new job. The truth is, says Lisa, we already know what we have to do. We just need the conviction to get going. This conversation is packed with other gems of wisdom from Lisa’s life. From the intentional communication that underpins her marriage, to the realisation that the only hero she really needed was herself. From finding the solution to her gut-health problems, to the ‘No BS’ trick she and Tom use for working out what they really want from life. All this, and much more, in this fantastic episode.

#287 The Secret To Radically Improving Your Health (That Nobody’s Talking About!) with James Maskell
Are the people around you supportive of your health goals? If you were to embark on a new routine, would your friends be a help or hindrance? For today’s episode, I was delighted to welcome my good friend James Maskell for a conversation around friendship, community and the concept of ‘group medicine’.James is a health entrepreneur, author and community builder. He studied health economics and it’s now his mission to curb rising healthcare costs across the globe with a model that puts people first. His latest book, The Community Cure, looks at how helping groups of people with common health concerns come together can solve the very problems they share – an idea similar to Alcoholics Anonymous. He runs virtual health coaching groups in the US, which have been successful for everything from autoimmune disease to depression, chronic pain to digestive disorders. And he believes there are few conditions that couldn’t be helped by a collective mentality. We discuss a 2006 NHS version of this concept, which famously saw patients work together to reverse their type 2 diabetes through diet. It saved one practice £70,000 a year in drug costs, which would have equated to £270 million if rolled out across the UK.But it’s not just health-focused communities that can feel the benefit of coming together in groups and James and I discuss the profound benefits of men’s groups. When people share their experience, solutions and support each other to live well, amazing things can happen. I hope this conversation encourages you to reach out, find your tribe, and see what you can do for each other. Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/287DISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

Youth, Employment and Agniveers
The biggest dream/ problem or the confusion amongst growing teens is Career. A large population of Indian Youth aims to build careers in the armed forces and directly/indirectly I was also a part of it. One of the biggest differentiators between the armed forces career and corporate is that the armed forces career is time-bound in many aspects like you can join defense in a particular age band and have to retire at a certain age. While armed forces open the door for employment and, the youth protects our country outside and inside; one of the biggest concerns is the youth does not contribute to the economy directly. For example, almost 1.5 million super talented people who serve the armed forces, if become the entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, politicians, etc. may boost the economy significantly. I personally know several amazing talents who have served Indian Armed Forces through a short service commission and are now contributing to the economy significantly. But, this facility wasn't available to the junior talents until now. Fortunately, there is a great scheme by the Indian government to employ, train and enable youth to become more productive and self-reliant. But, there is a lot of confusion around it that needs clarity. To address this lack of clarity, I have Capt. Shashank Shandilya with me on the show today who simplified several aspects for the benefit of our youth. Do listen to this episode and share with the youth who are willing to contribute to the country and economy. I'll see you soon. Jai Hind Vivek

#285 Why Intermittent Fasting Works with Dr Jason Fung
Trigger warning: this podcast discusses fasting and its advice may not be suitable for anyone with an eating disorder. If you have an existing health condition or are taking medication, always consult your healthcare practitioner before going for prolonged periods without eating.When was the last time you had something to eat? Was the food consumed at a mealtime, or just because? My guest today has a simple but powerful message that I believe could revolutionize your health. Dr Jason Fung is one of the world's foremost experts on intermittent fasting. He practices in Canada as a kidney specialist and in 2012, he co-founded America's first intermittent fasting clinic. He's published multiple international bestselling books and he runs a global online coaching program called Intensive Dietary Management. Dr Fung also works tirelessly to communicate simple messages with the public on his YouTube channel.We begin this conversation by discussing how many unscheduled opportunities to eat there are in modern life. These days, it is normal to eat at your desk, in meetings, on public transport or even on the sofa at home. Yet, just a few decades ago, such habits would have seemed very out of place. Jason explains that the idea that it’s good to graze all day is unscientific and damaging – our bodies can only draw on our fat stores for energy when we’re not in a fed state. Our default should be not eating, with two or three meals planned in short windows over 24 hours. Instead, schools, workplaces and places of leisure are designed around opportunities to snack and for many of us, it's causing a host of problems.Jason goes on to talk about why he believes that calorie counting isn’t the answer when it comes to getting your weight and health in check and why some foods are more fattening than others, even if they're equal in calories. Jason's approach is to encourage all of us to switch to what he calls ‘the right foods’ – whole, unprocessed foods, low in sugar and refined carbohydrates, which will not stimulate large amounts of a hormone called insulin. As a result, Jason says you'll be less hungry, less inclined to eat constantly and return your hormones to the way they're designed to work.Jason is also a big fan of intermittent fasting for the right person and explains easy ways to practise it, the common mistakes and misconceptions, and reveals why the ‘rules’ aren’t as strict as you think. Whether you're already a fan of intermittent fasting, whether you're in the dark or whether you are someone who has yet to be convinced, I'd urge you to give this conversation a listen. Jason is a fantastic communicator who's helped countless people improve their health and well-being.Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.boncharge.com/livemorehttps://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemoreShow notes https://drchatterjee.com/285DISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

How to resolve conflicts in relationships?
Whenever you're in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. And, that factor is attitude. Conflict is a normal and natural aspect of relationships. As human beings, we are primed to respond to stress with a "fight" or "flee" response. Often, neither of these choices is appropriate. Therefore, we need to find a way to address conflict that is direct and assertive, while also respectful and diplomatic. A few of us fear conflict and go to great lengths to avoid it, which can backfire and lead to emotional, relational, and medical problems. If handled effectively, conflict can be an opportunity for learning, growth, and positive change. Do listen to this episode to know the basic things that we can do to resolve conflicts in relationships. I hope it helps. I'll see you soon. Jai Hind Vivek
#284 BITESIZE | 4 Simple Tips to Improve Your Gut Health | Jeannette Hyde

#283 Elizabeth Day: Life Lessons on Failure, Shame and Infertility
CAUTION: This episode contains mild swearing and themes of an adult nature. A few weeks ago, I hosted my first ever Feel Better Live More LIVE show, which took place in a beautiful theatre in London. I’m really excited to share a recording of that conversation with you today. My guest was the brilliant author, journalist and podcast host, Elizabeth Day. Elizabeth hosts a podcast called ‘How to Fail’ which celebrates the things that haven’t gone right. She has also written two books on the subject of failure and so it seemed fitting to begin our conversation talking about this thought-provoking topic. Life is full of uncertainty but Elizabeth believes that if anything is certain in life, it is that we will all fail. But what is important, she says, is how we respond to that failure - if we allow it to be, failure can be the key to growth, strength and self-awareness. We covered so many important topics that I am sure will strike a chord with you. We spoke about the importance of authentic connection and how important being vulnerable and sharing our failures with others is. We also discussed how shame often holds us back from doing this. In fact, Elizabeth shares her own experience of this during the breakdown of her marriage and how she was ashamed of admitting her feelings to others but how when she did, she was astonished by how people around her responded in a positive way. We also talked about competitiveness and people-pleasing, and Elizabeth very candidly talks about her own journey through IVF and what it taught her. Elizabeth is a firm believer in the idea that life will generally teach us the lessons that we need to learn and we discuss how this way of thinking can be beneficial when we come across conflict and obstacles in life. This is a beautiful, deep and honest conversation - I thoroughly enjoyed speaking to Elizabeth and I know that everyone in the audience that evening felt part of something really quite special. I hope you enjoy listening.Thanks to our sponsors:http://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemorehttps://www.calm.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/283Support the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

#281 Five Simple Steps To Reduce Anxiety, Stress and Toxic Thinking with Dr Caroline Leaf
What does the content of your mind look like? Do you sometimes have thoughts you don't want to have? Do you sometimes feel emotions you don't want to feel? My guest today has recently published a book called Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess: Five Simple, Scientifically Proven Steps to Reduce Anxiety, Stress and Toxic Thinking which contains techniques and practices that can help any of us whether we have a diagnosed mental health problem or not.  My guest is Dr. Caroline Leaf, a cognitive neuroscientist, researcher and best-selling author. Since the 1980s, Dr Leaf has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health and the formation of memory. She was one of the first in her field to study neuroplasticity and how the brain can change with directed input from our minds. Over the years, Dr Leaf has helped transform the lives of many people around the world - she's helped people with traumatic brain injury, stress, anxiety and depression, but the tools that she shares are relevant for anyone who wants to improve the functioning of their minds.  We begin our conversation talking about the difference between our minds and our brains - these two terms are often used interchangeably but Dr Leaf explains why this is a mistake. She explains how it's our mind, both our conscious mind and our non-conscious mind, that actually control our brain. It is because of this, she says, that we are much more in control of our symptoms than we might think.  Dr Leaf believes that many of the conventional clinical approaches to mental health and well-being are misguided and limiting. Her approach reframes things like depression and anxiety as a response, rather than an illness. Signs and symptoms, she says, always point to a thought or belief that has caused them. So instead of medicating them away, Dr Leaf believes that we need to spend more time looking for the cause.  It is Dr Leaf’s firm belief that we can all benefit from what she calls ‘mind management’. Whether we want to build a healthier, more resilient brain, whether we want more focus or whether we want to reduce negative thoughts that are affecting us, Dr Leaf has pioneered a five-step protocol to help us do so. In this conversation, she reveals just what those steps are and how we can all put them into practice in our everyday lives.Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.leafyard.com/livemorehttps://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/281DISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

#280 How To Make Lifestyle Changes That Will Last with Dr Rangan Chatterjee and Dr Ayan Panja (Re-Release)
This is part of my re-release series where I am interviewed by my good friend Dr Panja about small daily changes that can make a huge difference. Why is it that so many of us find it hard to stick to a new diet or lifestyle plan? We all start off well enough – full of energy and optimism but then the novelty soon wears off and life gets in the way. After some time, we are right back where we first started. The fact is, most health plans are based on the common, but incorrect assumption that we can make sweeping and lasting changes to our health by relying solely on willpower and motivation. But for the vast majority of us, this is just not true. This is exactly why I wrote my new book, ‘Feel Better in 5’– I want to empower people to make changes in their life not just in the short term, but ones that will stand the test of time.This week, my good friend Dr Ayan Panja returns to the podcast and we discuss just how we can all make lifestyle changes that last. We talk about how 5 minute chunks of time really can change your life, the importance of human connection when trying to make lifestyle change, why I am such a fan of a rounded approach to health and the ripple effect – how one small change in one aspect of your life can very quickly ripple into other areas. We also discuss what, in our collective 40 years of clinical experience, we have found to actually work with our patients when making lifestyle change. We delve into the latest in behaviour science and how we can use this to help us make new healthy habits. Finally, I explain to Ayan that my goal in writing ‘Feel Better in 5’ was to make health as accessible as possible to people of all backgrounds hence the reason nearly all the recommendations within it are completely free. Ayan finishes by sharing some of his tops tips. I really enjoyed taking some time out to sit down and chat with one of my best friends – I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did!Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemorehttp://www.athleticgreens.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/280Support the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

#278 How to Transform Your Lifestyle for Optimum Health, Happiness and Vitality with Tony Riddle
What does it mean to be a thriving human in the 21st century? The way we currently live is very different from the way humans have lived for the bulk of our evolution. As humanity has evolved and developed technologies to make us more comfortable, many of us have lost our instinctive connection to nature and this has had profound consequences on our physical and mental well-being. So what can we do about this? Well, as it turns out, quite a lot. My guest today is Tony Riddle. Tony is an ultra-endurance athlete and goes by the name of the natural lifestylist. He has spent the last decade developing and refining a robust way of life based upon the principles of a natural lifestyle. He's hosted retreats and workshops, where he has taught thousands of people around the world to live more naturally. Tony has now written his very first book, Be More Human: How to Transform your Lifestyle for Optimum Health, Happiness and Vitality. The beauty of Tony's natural lifestyle philosophy is its simplicity, rather than a long list of things to incorporate into your busy life, it's actually all about stripping back and simplifying; removing what's not serving us in order to get back to a natural state of well-being. A good way to start is to learn how to ‘down-regulate’ – to calm the fight-or-flight system that’s switched on when we’re under chronic stress. It can be as easy as a minute or two of breathing, exhaling for longer than you inhale. Or a few moments spent in nature. But he also wants us to experiment with discomfort and inconvenience, antidotes to modern life that will keep our muscles and mind from atrophy. We talk about the benefits of cold immersion and some simple ways in which we can start to bring this into our lives. We chat about the importance of good quality sleep and why we all may not need the mythical eight hours. Tony describes some posture-enhancing positions we can all adopt, including squats and heel sitting to liberate our joints and spine. He explains why our foot strength dramatically increases when we transition to minimalist shoes and spend more time without our shoes on. We finished off talking about Tony's deep relationship to running and why he describes it as a spiritual experience. The truth is we are never going back to being hunter-gatherers. But it doesn't mean we can't learn from them. Tony says we don't have to live in the wild to re-wild. This is such an inspiring episode, packed with practical tools that you can try right now. Tony is passionate and knowledgeable and I hope this conversation will help you become happier and healthier.Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemorehttps://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.leafyard.com/livemoreShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/278DISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

#277 Is it Time for a Tactical Break from Alcohol? With Andy Ramage (Re-Release)
This is part of my re-release series and was first aired in 2019.  How does alcohol fit into your life? Have you ever given it any thought? My guest on this week’s podcast is Andy Ramage, a performance coach and author. He’s also one of the founders of One Year No Beer, a habit-changing programme that invites people to try 28, 90 or 365 days alcohol free – and see what it does for them. Andy was like many of us, he was not an alcoholic but he was what he calls ‘a middle lane drinker’. He would drink a little bit to unwind, at work events, when he saw his friends and probably a little bit more on the weekends. Andy started off on a 30 day trial without alcohol and now hasn’t drunk any alcohol for six years and says he can’t envisage doing so again. But his agenda is not to make you stop drinking for good. It’s to demonstrate that taking a break from the booze can bring a surprising host of benefits, even if you don’t think of yourself as a problematic drinker. Andy and I delve into just what some of those benefits might be. We discuss how alcohol is so ingrained in our social lives and often our work culture that often we don’t even consider what life would be like without it. It’s linked to every part of our lives from relaxation and fun to social bonding or even just relieving boredom. We talk about societal expectations and peer pressure and both of us share our own individual stories and our own journeys with alcohol. Finally, Andy shares some brilliant, practical tips to help anyone who maybe considering tactical break from alcohol. This is a really inspiring conversation. Whether you’re already thinking of cutting down, it’s not something you’ve considered, or even if you’re already abstaining, I hope you’ll find some life-enhancing lessons in this podcast. Thanks to our sponsors:http://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/277Support the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

#275 How To Become Happier Today (it's easier than you think) with Mo Gowdat
Happiness is a choice.It’s a bold statement, but it’s one I wholeheartedly support. Whether you agree with this statement, or whether the idea sits a little uncomfortably with you, I think you are going to get a lot out of this uplifting conversation. My guest is Mo Gawdat and he has been at both ends of the spectrum on which we might consider happiness lies. And he’s unlocked the key to true contentment, no matter what obstacles you may come across in life.  You might know Mo as the former Chief Business Officer of Google X – a role with status and riches that many might aspire to. You may also know him as the respected ‘happiness expert’, speaker and bestselling author of self-help books like Solve For Happy and his latest book, That Little Voice In Your Head.  We begin our conversation by talking about the concept of success and fulfilment and why his money only gave him joy when he gave it away. We also chat about how the sudden and tragic death of his son at the age of 21 set him on a path to make a billion people happier. This is a wide-ranging, personal and heartfelt conversation. Listening to Mo’s account is incredibly emotional, yet he’s so full of love, truth and gratitude. I’m so grateful to him for sharing so honestly and authentically but I get the idea that Mo knows no other way. This man embodies the idea that happiness is a set of skills and beliefs that we can all practice. And you can choose to practice them, no matter what life puts in your way. When you listen to him speak, it’s hard not to agree. Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.calm.com/livemorehttp://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/275Support the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

How to balance success and failures?
One of the important things that I have learned from my life is - No one can always be successful and No one can always be a failure (in terms of all the aspects of life). We all aim for success and feel miserable when we fail. Whatever amount of consolation is given or however number of motivational videos you watch, the truth is - IT HURTS (Sometimes terribly). Well, in today's episode I got an opportunity to converse with a very popular RJ in Kolkata who addresses this challenge his way. Do listen. I hope it helps. I'll see you soon.

#274 Why You Need More Rest with Claudia Hammond (Re-Release)
This episode is part of our re-release series.Warning: some people might find this podcast seriously restful. If that sounds appealing, it should do, because rest is something we all need to prioritise. So says this week’s guest, Claudia Hammond, who argues that being busy isn’t a badge of honour – and taking time out is definitely not lazy. We examine the science behind our struggles to relax and she shares some brilliant insights on our attitudes to downtime, the top 10 activities most likely to help us switch off, and what the benefits are for our health, wellbeing and productivity. If you need a reminder of why rest is so important – and permission to do it, without feeling guilty – this is it. So put your feet up (or head out for a walk, if you find that more restful), and listen in.Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.leafyard.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemorehttps://www.athleticgreens.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpSupport the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

#272 Dr Rangan Chatterjee: My 3 Biggest Failures In Life
This week, I decided to do something a little bit different - instead of me inviting a guest onto my podcast and speaking to them about their ideas and work, I'm releasing a conversation that I had back in February with the wonderful Elizabeth Day on her podcast, How To Fail. Her podcast is about celebrating the things that have not gone right in our life and is centred around the topic of failure and learning from our mistakes. In this conversation, I share with Elizabeth what I consider to be my three biggest failures in life. We talk about happiness and Elizabeth asks me about my latest book, Happy Mind, Happy Life. We also chat about people-pleasing, authenticity, low self-worth and the harmful consequences of doing things solely for external validation. I also share how I met my wife and why these days, I feel happier and more content than ever before.  This really was a powerful, intimate and revealing conversation. I hope you enjoy listening. Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.leafyard.com/livemorehttps://www.blublox.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpSupport the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

How do we handle Mid-Life Crisis?
Hi Friends, We all at some point of time in our lives feel confused and willingly or unwillingly take a drastic step, sometimes without even thinking about it like quitting a job, ending a relationship abruptly, buying an expensive item without needing it, etc Men and women are equally likely to experience a transition or crisis, But it looks different in both genders.  "The stereotype is a man buys a red sports car". That's not always the case, of course, but  men do seem more intent on wanting to prove something. Men might gauge their worth by their job performance. They may want to look successful, for instance, even though their achievements don't measure up as they had hoped. "Women often get validity through relationships," and that's true even if they've had a lifelong career. So at midlife, they are likely to evaluate their performance as a wife, mother, or both. Listen to the complete podcast and know how to handle this transition. I'll see you soon. Jai Hind Vivek www.thevivek.in
#271 Why Walking Is The Superpower You Didn’t Know You Had with Professor Shane O’Mara (Re-Release)
This conversation was first released in November 2019. When was the last time you gave any real thought to walking? It’s so easy to put one foot in front of the other. Yet this unique, underrated activity sets us apart from other species, and brings incredible advantages – yes, superpowers – if we do it enough. My guest on this week’s podcast is the neuroscientist Shane O’Mara, a professor of experimental brain research at Trinity College Dublin. After reading his remarkable new book, In Praise of Walking: The New Science of How We Walk And Why It’s Good For Us, I couldn’t wait to talk to him about the topics it raises. Shane has always been a keen walker and aims to clock 15,000 to 17,000 steps each day on his pedometer. But as we discuss, the positive effects of walking go way beyond the fitness benefits we all know about. Walking helps more than our hearts and lungs, our muscles and posture, yet modern, sedentary lives mean we’re doing far less of it than nature intended. It can increase creativity and problem solving, lift our mood and protect us from depression. Shane reveals how it helps learning, memory and cognition and how it can slow and even reverse the functional ageing of the brain. All this science, he hopes, will help convince town planners and public health officials that we must redesign our environments with pedestrians in mind. This is such an enlightening conversation and I know you’ll gain some fascinating new perspectives on how you could (and why you should) fit more walking into your life. Why not head out for a stroll as you listen?Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.leafyard.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpSupport the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

#269 Dr Rupy Aujla on How To Eat Your Way To Better Health
Do you believe that food can be medicine? Most of us would agree that a healthy diet – whatever that means to the individual – is vital to our wellbeing. But can the right foods actually prevent and even cure illness? I know what I think, and my guest today not only agrees, he provides living proof! Dr Rupy Aujla was just 24 when he was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, a heart condition rare in someone of that age. But it wasn’t Rupy’s years of medical training or even his consultant’s advice that turned his life around. It was only when he listened to his mother, looked to his diet, and transformed his eating that he was able to defy medical expectations and reverse his condition.This experience led Rupy to do a deep dive into how this ‘impossible’ feat was achieved and in this conversation, he shares some of the explanations he’s uncovered, including a reduction in inflammation and an improvement in the health of his gut. Back in 2015, he founded The Doctor’s Kitchen, a movement to inspire and educate people about nutritional medicine and help them eat well every day. He not only shares recipes but also explains the clinical research behind them and how they can help you with your health. And he does this via his bestselling books, podcasts and social media posts. Recently, Rupy has taken the decision to pause his NHS career and focus on making healthy eating more accessible by launching the Doctor’s Kitchen app, which is set to become a must-have resource for finding research-backed recipes tailored to your personal likes and health goals. It is available now on the App store.Rupy is a great friend and our lives have followed a similar path in many ways. We talk in-depth about the concept of food as medicine, as well as the polarising nature of discussions around diet. We also consider identity when it comes to career choice, and what it really means to be a doctor in the modern world. If you can help hundreds of thousands of people live better through your public platforms, is that any less meaningful than helping patients in a surgery or hospital each day? There’s lots to think about in this conversation and I hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed chatting.Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.leafyard.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/269DISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

Tips to boost exam performance
In a survey of more than 1300 participants, 96% said they feel anxious about exams. This high percentage isn’t surprising, but it still raises questions about whether the education system is overly competitive and stressful. I firmly believe that education should be about much more than exam grades. But schools aren’t going to get rid of exams any time soon, so students might as well learn to deal with exams as calmly and effectively as possible. In today's episode, I have discussed a few tips that'll certainly help you be more productive and this episode is NOT ONLY ABOUT SCHOOL/ COLLEGE EXAMS. I hope you have a great time. See you soon.

#268 This Daily Breathing Technique Will Transform Your Body & Mind | James Nestor Re-Release
In today’s episode, we’re revisiting one of our most popular episodes with James Nestor.Breathwork is where my personal and professional interests collide. How we breathe affects every body system we have and I’m excited to welcome James Nestor, science journalist and author of the book Breath, which explores the data behind this ancient, but some might say lost, art.And yes, it is an art. As we discuss, it doesn’t matter whether you follow a new or ancient technique to harness the potential of your breath, the principles are the same. What I love about James’ approach is he has no agenda to push. He hasn’t developed his own breathing technique, theory or product. He’s a journalist with an enquiring, sceptical mind. By his own admission, he came from a place where – like many of you, perhaps – he thought, ‘What’s all the fuss about breathing? It’s automatic, it’s easy, our bodies know what they’re doing’. But do they really? During this conversation, we cover some of the fascinating – objective – insights James has uncovered in his research. He explains the benefits of nasal breathing, the importance of masticating and how diet affects the skeletal development of our children’s mouths. James reveals how learning to chew more, chewing on one side and using mouth tape at night has changed the structure of his own mouth. His airways – and his wellbeing – have never been better. We discuss the long list of conditions breathing may improve; how athletes can benefit. And James reveals the therapeutic process behind some ‘super breathing’ techniques. Whether you’re already practising breathwork, you’re curious or yet to be convinced, James has a no-nonsense, rigorous approach we can all take something from. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemorehttps://www.leafyard.com/livemorehttps://www.athleticgreens.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpSupport the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

#266 Dr Joe Dispenza on How To Unlock The Power of Your Mind
Dr Joe Dispenza is a New York Times best-selling author, speaker and researcher who has spent decades studying neuroscience, meditation and the effect our thoughts have on our health and wellbeing. He believes that all of us are sitting on a huge amount of untapped potential and once we start to tap into it, we can create huge change in our lives for both our health and happiness. In this powerful conversation, we talk about the importance of mental rehearsal: the idea that instead of waiting for something to happen in the future in order to feel a certain way- instead, we can practice feeling that way right now.  We cover a variety of different topics including: the transformative effects of meditation and what happens in the brain when we practice, the 3 different kinds of stress and how chronic emotional stress can drive ill health and disease. Dr Joe explains how 90% of the thoughts we think are the same as the day before and how that keeps many of us trapped in negative thought patterns, until we learn to break free. At its core, this is a conversation about unlocking the power that exists within your own mind. This really is an inspiring and empowering conversation, and one that I think will challenge you (in a good way!!) to start thinking differently about your life.  I hope you enjoy listening.Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.calm.com/livemorehttps://www.blublox.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/266DISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

When life throws lemons at you, make lemonade. Easier said than done, right? A majority of people around us give us "Gyan" that they themselves can't follow in adverse circumstances. But, there are real people who preach what they practice. I happened to meet one such person and really got inspired. "Life" can't be controlled by us but we can definitely control the way we react to it; just like the sailer can't determine the wind's direction but can control the sail. I'm sure this 10 minutes story will bring a lot of clarity to your perspective. Do listen, share your feedback and pray for the soul that is in much pain. Frankly, she's in a state today that we don't know whether she would wake up tomorrow. But she has woken up many souls around her. I'll see you soon. Jai Hind Vivek

#263 How To Be Your Own Therapist with Dr Julie Smith
Social media has its flaws – but it can also be a force for good, creating communities and offering help to people who might not otherwise receive it. And my guest today is someone who uses her platform to do just that.Dr Julie Smith is a clinical psychologist, who’s passionate about making the tools of therapy accessible to all. And she has a real talent for doing so, to her audience of over four million people across social media, and now with the number one Sunday Times bestseller Why Has No One Told Me This Before? Julie has worked in the NHS and been in private practice for more than a decade, helping a diverse range of clients through difficult times. But she felt frustrated that it was only those clients sitting in front of her who were able to benefit from her years of training and experience. Therapy is about talking and working through your problems, but it also has an educational component, Julie explains. You learn about how your mind works, so you can influence your mood and cope better day-to-day. She realised this was something she could teach online so, back in 2019, set about posting short videos to Instagram, TikTok and YouTube. These quickly went viral, earning her hundreds of thousands of followers. Recent topics include breathwork for when you feel overwhelmed, how to recognise addiction, and how to help someone having a panic attack.If you already follow Julie, you’ll be aware of her warm and friendly approach to helping us all build resilience. I think she’s brilliant at demystifying our thoughts, feelings and behaviours and encouraging small steps towards self-care. During this conversation we cover many of those steps, such as meta-cognition, journaling, emotional vocabularies, self-soothing and recognising your attachment style. As with all of Julie’s tools and teachings, the common theme is self-awareness. She’s helping people get a bird’s eye view on their life, notice patterns and perhaps make different choices. And, as we discuss, this can help not only our mental health and emotions, but our physical health too.I had such fun chatting to Julie and this is a wide-ranging and empowering conversation that I think can help all of us improve our mental well-being and resilience.Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.leafyard.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemorehttps://www.athleticgreens.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/263DISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

#262 If This Man Can Change, Anyone Can - Armed Robber to Record Breaking Athlete: John McAvoy (Re-release)
CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains swearing. Is there a change you’d like to make in your life? Something you’re desperate to overcome, but can’t see how? Or a goal you’re scared to aim for, because it feels too far off? My guest on this week’s podcast might just convince you to have a go. He’s John McAvoy, endurance athlete extraordinaire, author and the man with one of the most inspirational stories I have ever heard.  John was born into a notorious crime family and has served a total of 10 years in some of the UK’s highest security prisons, for armed robbery. He was raised into a life of organised crime and, as a teenager, it was the only career path he could see for himself. In fact, he bought his first gun at the age of 16 and very quickly became one of the UK’s most wanted men. How did he go from serving two life sentences to breaking British and World sporting records and giving talks to schoolchildren? From violent criminal to opinion leader, invited to 10 Downing Street for his views on the justice system? You’ll have to listen and find out.  Not only is every part of John’s story worthy of a Hollywood movie script, the lessons and life advice he shares are relevant to each and every one of us. Whether you’re interested in his rowing and Ironman success, how he transformed his moral code or how he overcame adversity, this really is a compelling conversation. I know you’re going to be as gripped by John as I was.Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemorehttps://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.leafyard.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/262Support the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

#260 How To Stop Feeling Overwhelmed with Oliver Burkeman
The average person has 4,000 weeks on earth. It doesn’t sound like much does it? You’re probably doing mental arithmetic right now trying to work out how many weeks you might have left. But if that sounds like a pessimistic start to this podcast, fear not. My guest today is Oliver Burkeman, journalist and author, whose latest book is Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management For Mortals. And in this conversation, he shares a positive philosophy that can help us all overcome the overwhelm, make better choices, and build a meaningful relationship with time. We begin by talking about our concept of time and how we falsely believe it’s something we can control. We think of time as infinite and don’t realise how distraction – that modern-day temptation – is robbing it from us. Or maybe we do know time is finite, says Oliver, but we just feel overwhelmed by all the things we have to do or want to do. How will we fit them all in? The truth, he points out, is that we won’t. Many of the productivity hacks that we learn are a delusion. Time management doesn’t mean becoming more productive, it means deciding what to neglect. And once we realise we can never fit everything in, we get the freedom to prioritise. Thinking about our limited lifespan may sound bleak, but Oliver is convinced that imposing limits of knowledge like this can help us live a more fulfilled and less stressed life. We’re more likely to use time mindfully, or be more creative, when we know it’s finite. I absolutely loved talking with Oliver and I think his words will give you plenty to reflect on. In a world of demands, distractions and endless to-do lists, this conversation might be the most useful time-management tool of all. This conversation is full of mind-blowing facts and insights but it’s also really empowering and contains simple, practical tips that all of us can use to improve our lives. I hope you enjoy listening.Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.leafyard.com/livemorehttps://www.blublox.com/livemorehttps://www.athleticgreens.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/260DISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

How to deal with a Narcissist in life?
We mostly come across someone at some point in time in our lives who thinks He/She is THE BEST, doesn't care for others' emotions, has an inflated sense of importance, and goes to any extent to get praise. He/She may be a narcissist. Narcissism is extreme self-involvement to the degree that it makes a person ignore the needs of those around them and, this is a medical condition. While everyone may show occasional narcissistic behavior, true narcissists frequently disregard others or their feelings. They also do not understand the effect that their behavior has on other people. Are there ways to deal with them? Yes, there are. Do listen to this episode to get more clarity. I'll see you soon.

#259 Mindset Expert Explains How To Achieve Anything You Want In Life Today | Peter Crone (Re-Release)
CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains swearing. This is the fourth in a series of re-released episodes from the Feel Better Live More archives. In this episode, I welcome back Peter Crone, aka ‘The Mind Architect’.  Peter is a writer, speaker and thought leader in human potential. He has worked with world-famous actors, athletes and the business elite yet what he has to say is just as likely to resonate with the average person, seeking to feel more comfortable in their own skin. His mission is to help people live life without limitations and stress. What he offers instead, is a life of freedom and peace. And who wouldn’t want that? I think that’s why my last conversation with Peter back on episode 82 was one of the most popular conversations I have had to date.  Peter acknowledges that people struggle and the human experience is challenging but he offers a different way to look at life and your current problems. He believes our subconscious dialogue – the self-talk that’s rooted in childhood conditioning and that we may not even be aware of – gives us a certain idea of who we are. By questioning this, and realising it’s not the truth, we can find freedom from suffering. We can get to know the triggers that make us feel less-than, and break free of our limitations.  If you heard my last conversation with Peter, you’ll know how life-changing his philosophy can be. This conversation has even more anecdotes that will help you apply Peter’s philosophy into your life. This is a really powerful conversation and I hope it helps you to find more freedom in your life. Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.leafyard.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemorehttps://www.athleticgreens.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/259Support the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

#258 BITESIZE | The One Important Question You Should Ask Every Day | Greg McKeown

#257 Jonny Wilkinson: Why Everything You Know About Success Is Wrong
Jonny Wilkinson is one of the most decorated and recognisable faces in rugby history and he’s probably best known for kicking the winning goal in 2003 to help England win the Rugby World Cup. But this episode of my podcast is not a conversation about rugby. It’s a conversation about what it truly means to live a meaningful and contented life. Jonny shares how winning the World Cup led to disappointment, discontentment and a mental health crisis. He explains how he spent his entire life trying to realise his dreams, only to discover that achieving them did not make him happy. In this deep and soulful conversation, Jonny explains how his relationship with rugby changed from initially being a ‘celebration of his talent’ to later becoming something that only caused him stress, anxiety and made him fearful.  Jonny has been to the extremes of life - extreme levels of success but also extreme levels of discontentment. And, by going to those extremes, I think Jonny has learned some incredible truths and wisdom, which he shares in our conversation. We talk about the difference between success and happiness, the price we often pay for pursuing our dreams, the importance of awareness and living in the moment, as well as the importance of letting go of old beliefs when they no longer serve us. We also talk about Identity and how limiting the labels we put on ourselves can be, how we can use micro-moments of resistance in our daily lives to grow and learn and how our past can actually change, depending on what perspective we put on it in the present moment. This is a powerful, thought-provoking and engaging conversation with an incredible human being that I truly believe has the potential to transform the way you look at life - I hope you enjoy listening.Thanks to our sponsors:http://www.athleticgreens.com/livemorehttps://www.vivobarefoot.com/livemorehttps://www.calm.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life: UK version: https://amzn.to/304opgJ, US & Canada version: https://amzn.to/3DRxjgpShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/257Support the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

Bravery and We
Successful people usually don't get where they are by adhering to the ordinary. But I've got news for you. They're not always dripping with confidence all the time. They all have moments where the anxiety of a mistake sits deep in their stomachs or they don't know for sure what the right decision is. And in those moments, they almost always reflect on what others have said. And by focusing on the truths and broader perspectives embedded in those words, they rebuild their courage. If you're feeling at all mouse-ish, do the same. Listen to this episode to learn more in detail. I hope it helps. I'll see you soon. Jai Hind Vivek
#256 Esther Perel: Relationships and How They Shape Us (Re-Release)
This is the third in a series of re-released episodes from the Feel Better Live More archives. In this conversation, I speak to arguably one of the world’s leading and most original thinkers on modern relationships, the wonderful, Esther Perel, who has long been on my dream guest list. We talk about the many differences between relationships of the past and the relationships of now. How we are now all under pressure not only to have the perfect relationship, but also to portray this illusion to others as well. Esther believes that it’s the quality of our relationships that determines the quality of our lives. And who we are is actually a combination of how we see ourselves and how others see us. We only really get to know ourselves through our interactions with others. We talk about the idea that we are not one person but different with each person – and rather than being one-way, all interactions are reciprocal. We discuss the value of couples’ counselling and whether it’s something all relationships, healthy or otherwise, need. Reassuringly, we learn that there’s no such thing as a perfect relationship, they all follow a rhythm of harmony, disharmony and repair. Esther and I touch and expand on our own situations and how the family history and values you bring to a relationship or marriage impacts the dynamic between you. She talks us through how much the concept of marriage has changed over the past century, and how it’s a tall order to ask just one person in our lives to meet all of our needs – needs which once would have been shared across our extended families and communities.This episode is a joyous celebration of all the relationships in our lives. It’s challenging, poignant but ultimately hugely practical. Esther offers some wonderful examples of practices we can all start implementing today, from rituals to build strength in our intimate relationships, to advice on reframing criticism or starting difficult conversations at work. The upshot? Rather than hoping others will change, we can be the change ourselves.It was a great pleasure to speak with such an incredible lady and I know that you will get a lot of value from hearing what she has to say.Thanks to our sponsors:https://www.leafyard.com/livemorehttps://www.athleticgreens.com/livemoreOrder Dr Chatterjee's new book Happy Mind, Happy Life:UK version https://amzn.to/304opgJUS & Canada version https://amzn.to/3DRxjgp Show notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/256Support the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.
