Believing that medicine is more art than science, Dr Rangan Chatterjee’s MO is understanding how lifestyle factors like upbringing, social status, stress levels, sleep, and even phone use might be affecting your physical and mental health. In this chat with Fearne, they talk through lots of practical methods that’ll help you understand and alter the way you feel. For example, the act of journaling won’t change the problem you have, but what it will change is how you interact with the problem – and that could be life changing.

Does feeling different to others – or perceiving others as different to you – make you uncomfortable, or do you celebrate uniqueness? June Sarpong reckons we all need to own our differences. In fact, she’s now using her own experience of working in TV to make the industry a kinder and more inclusive place for everyone to thrive in, regardless of their background. In this chat with Fearne, she’s honest about when she, as someone who considers herself an activist, still has had to check her own behaviour and unconscious bias. June’s brilliant book, The Power of Privilege, is out now. Thanks to the sponsors of this series of Happy Place, WeDo/.
