Want to know what we can learn from dogs? A lot. In this episode I talk to Graeme Hall, the Dogfather (from TV's 'Dog's behaving badly'), a dog trainer that focuses on human behaviour to get the best out of the owner, and the dog, to create positive change. So what if we apply dog training principals to our own lives, can we break habits we think we can't give up, can we do more, can we be more, can we change, for good?

Can we be the best at something? Can we stop eating junk food when we 'feel' we can't? Can we lift that weight we believe we can't? This is another life changing episode, if you're willing to apply some very simple principals of change.

Is a plant based diet better for your health? Or for your hormones? Can meat cause cancer and other diseases? Charlotte writes into the show and asks the question, what are the benefits to vegan eating and plant based diets, and in today's show, we explore this topic.

Do we talk enough about mental health? I'd say no, and James Rontledge from Sanctus agree's, a man on a mission to spread awareness of mental health after experiencing anxiety and social pressure to conform himself. As a result he created Sanctus, a company focused on providing safe places for people to talk about their mental health. In this episode we explore the stigma around mental health, why it's all in our control if we choose it to be, how we balance being ambitious with maintaining well-being, and the societal demands we now face from the modern world.
