  • Why I'm refusing to be a martyr
    on 13 July 2023

    Women have always been conditioned to put their own wellbeing last. Research shows that their pets get better care than they do. Pets are wonderful companions: they need and deserve our care. But don't we deserve some care too? Research has also shown that this "me-last" conditioning leads to […]

    on 2 July 2023

    Getting yourself healthy doesn't have to be hard work. It can actually be, yes, pleasurable! Here's my Peppermint Tea chat with Katy Grele, a 51-year-old mum who has come through breast cancer. Katy wasn't interested in doing any more short-lived, quick-fix diet plans. She wanted to adopt healthy […]

We need to think about how we'd like to feel and live in the last years of our life. I hope this episode gives you a […]

  • Women and burnout: why we can't go on like this
    on 1 June 2023

    There's a crisis amongst women at work. Burnout is the no. 1 reason why women are leaving (or planning to leave) their job. I've been there myself. My mental and physical health suffered when I tried to juggle a high-stress PR job with caring for very young children. I talk through why we're at […]

  • What I learnt in Greece - and why we've misunderstood "diet"
    on 18 May 2023

    I'm just back from a sailing holiday in Greece. It rained a lot...but at least the food was fabulous. I thought I'd share with you what I've learnt about the fabled "Mediterranean diet". As you'll hear, food is SO much more than fuel - and the Mediterranean diet is SO much more than what's on our […]

  • Can you hear your body talking to you? Here's how to listen in.
    on 23 March 2023

    I learnt the hard way how to listen to my body's signals. In this episode, I share how my body screamed at me - and how I was deaf to what it was saying. I saw each new symptom as something I needed to mask or get rid of. I didn't understand that the root cause of them all was stress. I also […]
