Does being happy make us healthier, not only mentally, but physically too? Dr Rangan Chatterjee explains the very real effect chronic mental stress can have on our bodies. 80% of ailments he sees as a GP are due to our collective modern lifestyle – that’s not to shame anyone, it’s to help us understand the lifestyle changes we can all make to alleviate both mental and physical symptoms. In this chat, he and Fearne talk about why core happiness isn’t the billboard image of a smiling family on the beach, and why the truth often doesn’t matter when it comes to our happiness, it’s about the story we choose to tell ourselves...
Rangan’s book, ‘Happy Mind, Happy Life: 10 Simple Ways To Feel Great Every Day’ is out now.
