Addictive Daughter, aka., Joey Bradford & Persia Lawson are shaking up the way we think about self-help by making it accessible, relatable, and aspirational for the millennial generation. Their book, The Inner Fix, not only promises to make you stronger, happier, and braver, but it delivers. In this episode we talk about dysfunctional relationships with men, addiction, sitting in the discomfort, and finding the lesson in the struggle.
Pixie is a plant-based food blogger, wellness rebel, and nutritionist in training with a serious case of wanderlust and a passion for evidence-based science, and regularly organises events in London. She is currently completing her MSc in Nutrition in London. This episode is a lot of us ranting about nutrition stuff, we talk about not being so militant and attached to labels around food, orthorexia, things to think about if you want to study nutrition, and being authentic on social media. This is a really fun conversation – it’s a bit long so feel free to listen to it in little nuggets.
Today, we’re talking with and actual scientist and researcher who is going to give us the 411 on how to get the perfect night’s sleep. We’re talking disco naps, why sleeping in can be bad for you, how sleeping helps our bodies detox, how night shift can totally screw things up and why not sleeping enough is actually a bit like being drunk. My guest is Dr. Ian Walshe from the University of Northumbria. He is a senior lecturer whose research focuses on sleep, exercise, nutrition, and inflammation and he’s a super smart dude.
