"Thanks for tuning into the glossy beauty podcast. I'm your host list flora. If you've been following the clean hair care market, you probably know that the options used to be pretty limited. People wanting to buy clean hair care brands usually had to choose between luxury brands at places like goop or the brands on the crunchier end of the spectrum at places like whole foods. On this week's episode, I spoke with Lindsay Holden and British Chatterjee, who saw a gap in the market and launched a clean hair care brand odal in 2020 with their third cofounder Shannon Kearney. They opted for sophisticated branding with a lower price point and first went into target where Holden was previously a senior buyer. We talked about their approach to branding their focus on design and touched on millennials obsession with instagrammable bathrooms down to their shampoo bottles. Here's the episode. Lindsay and britta, thank you for being here. Thanks for having us. Thank you. So excited to be here. So we always like to start these interviews by asking founders how they got started in beauty, what are each of your

"We made a vow. And I neglected my friendships for a few years. Neglect is the one word. I under prioritized them, because I was so busy, like everyone else. But we said, right, twice a year, we are going to get together for a golf weekend. And it's not about the golf, actually. It's just that we all have to play. So golf is the glue that gets us there. And if I come into that weekend feeling physically and mentally exhausted, I always come back feeling refreshed. An interesting enough when I come back, not only do I feel better in myself. I'm a better husband. I'm a better father. I'm better in the job that I do, because Friends serve a different role in our lives than our partner, for example, or our children. And on a wider level, there is a whole chapter on intimacy as well in the book because I think intimacy is something that we are eroding out of our lives, whether it's with our friends, whether it's with our other halves. And I think it's a real problem and I kind of feel that we're expecting so much of our other half these days because we're living these isolated lives because we've often moved away from parents from networks from friends for work. And then we have kids, let's say, we're trying to bring kids up by ourselves without a support network. We often don't see our Friends, so we expect our partners to be everything. We expect them to be a great parent. We expect them to be great in the house. We expect them to be a confident, our best Friends, a sexual partner, all these things we expect of one person. And I think it's too much. And never in human history have we expected that much of one person. It's always taken a village, right? We get different things from different people. And so that's why I've written a whole chapter on nurturing your friendship because I think friendship is important. Friendship is not a luxury, it's a necessity for health. And as pubs start closing down around the country as churches start closing down as these places where people used to congregate and unwind together was were pubs always about the drinking or was it about the camaraderie and their probably a bit of both, but I think it's a community more than anything. And I've got this table in the book on how you can become a regular again. What are those things that you can do to help get that community about? Because some people will listen to this, Matt and I'll go, that's all great, but you know what? I actually don't have any close friends. And I see that time and time again. And so it could be a club that you join, where there's a mutual interest, I think one of the reasons parkrun has proven to be a huge success is not really, it's not about the running actually. I interviewed the CEO of parkman recently on my podcast and he said, it's interesting part one is a social intervention, masquerading as a running event. Right? It's not about the running. It's a lot of people go and walk. Some people just go and volunteer. So I've got some patients who actually do feel very lonely. They don't have a friend's network, and I point them in direction of park one. And actually, they don't want to run. They just volunteer each week and they start to feel good about themselves, self esteem, because there's a supportive tribe who they congregate with every Saturday morning. And so when we think about stress, I think we have to think about relationships. So that's a little bit of almost like a taster of the sort of thing I discuss. I think one of the biggest issues and we do not have another hour to talk about it. But I easily could is community. And the dissolution of a sense of community, since I've since in my lifetime. Well, were you absolutely right? And that's pretty much almost what we sort of just been covering about those relationships is we need that community. And I think this sort of moving away from work, which many of us do, right? And I get it. I understand it. But I think it's come at a cost. And I think we have lost something and community is what's going to get us out of this jam. I think that we're in at the moment in society. But then have a look, we were talking about podcasts before a little bit. It's not the same thing as necessarily as real life connection, but I'm not really thought about it in this way, but your developing as I hope I am this sort of community, this like minded community through your podcast where listeners keep listening. They sort of engaging in what you're doing. Maybe they interact together online. And that can, for some people, can become their community, so I think it's interesting to think of things like that. I don't know if you have a you do have a Facebook group for the books and for you and there's one for this show and the people in there are freaking awesome. Really? I love the conversations they're having. Politically. Whether it's about, I've got these two job offers on the table. What should I do? Or just the conversations in there are brilliant. You know what I mean? Give me the idea. I don't have a Facebook group for my podcast, but I think I'm going to do one. And that's thanks to you because I often wonder, wouldn't it be great for them to have a little community area where they could congregate and chat, and so I'm going to set one up for the feel better in more podcast. I'm going to do what on Facebook, and that was all down zeros. Thank you. Yes, I will join it as soon as brilliant. Why that's sort of means I have to do it now, so I don't say. Even just for speaking to you, I am so far away from my stress threshold. It has been such a pleasure, but I have come to the end of my time with you because I have really taken the mic. So I just wanted to say thank you so much. And obviously listeners, the links to the stress solution, wrong in other book, the podcast, everything that we've talked about during the show, all of the links for those will be in the show notes that you can find on Apple podcasts, acast, and wherever it is that you are streamed down the stream louding, streaming or downloading this episode. And I mean, before we leave, I just want to say chatting to you for the last hour has been such a pleasure. I can't tell you you've got such a great manner and it's been I've just enjoyed it. I can't believe the times gone that quickly. So thank you for having me on. Oh, a pleasure. Come back soon. I'd love to

"Whole chapter on breathing in my book to help people understand how important it is to learn how to breathe as efficiently as possible. But a simple thing that we can all do is just focus on our breathing, even for one minute a day. It suddenly brings your awareness and actually, you know what, my breath is something I can use to change the way that I feel. And so I hope you find that Islam, it's just something I think. You might be able to do that. And stick it into your existing habits. I do feel motivated by that. And I know that when I do meditate and when I did 26 hours and I did it every day for two weeks, whereas I used to maybe wake up at DEFCON two. And then the meditation would bring me down to death corn four. I would wake up much less ready to fight. You know, much less ready to react. And then in the day, if then something happened that previously would have made me flare up or get upset or whatever it might be. I could deal with it. But interesting. My stress levels were in a place where I wasn't, as you say, at my threshold, so I was dealing with I had to go back to my earlier point, maybe my coping mechanisms were coming into play because my thought was more linear and less chaotic and yeah, absolutely. The other thing I find changes. That's interesting when you're doing that 26 habits, you would wake up just that bit calmer. Which again means you're much more resilient. And I know I've noticed that if I'm not disciplined with my one hour before bad, if I break my own rules and go on email and social media and I'm scrolling, I find that when I wake up, my mind's quite busy and I'm sort of I'm almost in that reactive mode, even if I haven't looked at my phone first thing in the morning. And I find when I literally switch my phone off for an hour before bed and do something like reading like a reading a book. I find I wake up karma and in fact, the way to have a stress free day actually starts the night before, doesn't it, really, because if you're wound up and you go to bed late, it affects the quality of your sleep, and you wake up much more stressful following day. So I think these are really useful things for people to think about. Because the reality is why so many of us are feeling stressed these days. But if we just focus on some of the basics, right? Like having one hour before without tech before you go to bed. Really prioritizing that sleep, having ten minutes of calm in the morning where you're not on your phone. One minute of deep breathing when you wake up, these are not that these are things that all of us can fit in actually. You're just going to find that actually you're much further away from your stress threshold. So you're less likely to feel stressed when life's inevitable stresses come your way as they will, you've got much more reserve left in the tank and so I'm really passionate that it's not as hard as we think. The other big thing I'd say to people is if you work at a laptop or a an office and you're looking at screens all morning, when it's your lunch break, if you are taking it, I hope you are many of us actually think we're being productive by staying working and eating at our desk, which is the most counterproductive thing you can do for a whole number of reasons. And one of the reasons I have to tell you, which is just brilliant and I found it when I was researching my book is that when you switch off from a task, then when you're not actually focused on something, we would think that our brain goes to sleep and starts to switch off. But it's not true. There's a part of your brain called the default mode network, the DM and it goes into overdrive. And what's up to do with? Well, your dear man is involved with what we call your autobiographical memory. But one thing it does is it helps us to solve problems and it helps us to be more creative. This is the reason why so many of us come up with our best ideas when we're out for a walk or we're in the shower. Like often when I'm in the shower I'm like, oh, I've just got it. I've got this idea and I got that idea. Actually, you're trying to remember them from when you come out. Right? Do you resonate with that? Totally. And my thing because I'm self employed, I work a lot from home. If I'm working on my computer and I'm feel like I'm beginning to bring my head against a brick wall into the other room, headphones in, free bird by Leonard Skynyrd. Took my language. Have a bit of a dance. All the oxygen starts moving around my body and I go back and everything falls into place. Yeah, but you know what? That's great. We intuitively know that that's exactly the kind of thing I do. The kind of crazy stuff I do and it works and we now know the science of why that is because your default mode network goes into overdrive when you switch off. So people who think that they can plow through their lunch break and keep working. Actually, yes, you can. There's a cost, a you're getting closer to your stress threshold, number one. Number two is that you are less productive in the afternoon than had you taken a ten or 15 minute break. And that is something that we almost need to reprogram into our heads in this society where we think we've got to keep going to get ahead to be more productive to compete with everyone else. Actually, switching off is the most productive thing you can do. And I think that's revolutionary for many people. And actually, now you're saying it, it makes perfect sense, and I wish I had put it in 26 habits to every day for two weeks to take a lunch break. Yeah. One of the tips I give patients and I talk about in my book is take a tech free lunch break. What I meant to say before is if you're on screens all morning, but what you don't want to do, which is what many of us do, which is like, oh, I've got a lunch pane now, right? Let's catch up on Instagram and Facebook and I've got these few emails. On my phone, I'm just going to catch up on them. But you're not allowing your brain to switch off your moving closer and closer to your threshold. And what that means is you may not pop then, but what will happen is that will keep going through the afternoon. And then let's say you get home or you work from home, right? Let's say, if you've got kids, your kids come back from school or if you've got a partner, your partner comes home for work, right? Well, you're going to have much deeper, meaningful interaction with them. If you've switched off a lunch time because you are much further away from your threshold, if you keep hammering it all day, you're going to bring that stress energy back into those relationships, which probably I'm hoping mean the most to you, yet we affect those so much. We let the stresses of our life really impacts our relationships, a whole quarter of my book is on relationships. And I think it's that important. And I think it's one of the biggest sources of stress, but also a lack of nourishing relationships is a huge source of stress and, I don't know if we've got time today, but we can certainly talk about why that is. But I think it's a little things to think about. Yes, so relationships is a quarter of the content of the book. And because it's such an important pillar. With the years, these four core areas in the book are what I call them are stress superhighways. They're where stress lives in our 21st century lives, and they work both ways. Let's take relationships. A lack of close nourishing relationships in our life. It's a

"If we keep the same identity that we're used to, we'll keep the same habits. And as we start shifting our mindset, we can start to shift our behaviors. It's something I wish I could tell you a bit more concisely at the moment, but I'm really exploring that in my head these days. Yeah, I know, I know exactly where it's going. It's the sort of crystallizing it. But because that's exactly how I feel I've had to completely change how I talk to myself, how I communicate with other people in order to live the life that I always thought of should be living. And that's why something like going back to what we said before about affirmations, right? That's the start of that process, because if all you did is for one minute a day, you said some affirmations to yourself, that is the start of the process of changing yourself, of improving yourself, of changing the identity, to a much more hopefully optimistic, resilience identity that is really going to help support those changes. I guess the other tip that's coming to my head is because you've tried somebody say, you can't get it in as a regular habit. No matter how hard you try. So what sort of things do you do in the morning? Do you brew your coffee, for example, or do you what do you do to tell me? Well, I get up and I immediately go and I make myself a coffee. So how do you do that? It will either be a cafeteria or an espresso machine. Okay, so when you're in the cafeteria, what is it? Do you weigh grounds? Are you a better obsessive like I used to be when I used to drink loads of coffee? Or do you, how does it work? Yeah, coffee grounds, a couple of spoonfuls, bowl the kettle, let it proof for a bit. How long did that brief or? Probably the amount of time I should be meditating, right? Well, this one I'm getting at. So I'm thinking about, okay, so if you talk to a lot of the behavioral change scientists and there is a lot of science on behavior change, that we'll talk about sticking on a habit, a new habit that you want to an existing habit. Right? So you almost like creating this sort of super habit by sticking it on to something you're already doing. It's like a power ranger. Yeah, exactly. It is exactly. So basically, right, you love your morning coffee, right? So that is something that I'm guessing. You don't wake up one day and go, you know, I'm not feeling it today. I'm not going to bother spending four or 5 minutes making my coffee. What does that ever happen? I'm suspecting not. It does actually. Does it? Well, that's interesting. You clearly not as much as a coffee addict as I used to get a migraine if I don't have to. Do you? Yeah, I used to do that. That's when I knew I had to do something about it. I metabolize it really well. I had a what I had. I did you do the genetics stuff. Oh, brilliant. But I mean, the point I'm trying to make is, it sounds like most mornings, if not every morning, you either have a coffee or a cup of some hot drink. So what I would say there is, if meditation is not working, let's try something else. What about deep breathing? What about if every time you go to make your morning drink, whether it's espresso machine, whether it's a cafeteria, what if you said, okay, every time I do that, whilst it's brewing or whilst the cattle is boiling, for one minute, I'm going to do some deep breathing. Right? And the breath I like a lot is something I came up with in the past few years ago. It's called the three, four, 5 breath. And it's basically when you breathe in for three, for four and you breathe out for 5. Now, if we could try it if you want. Even use the thing that was really relaxed. Yeah, but it really works. I use it with a lot of my patients if you're stressed, you feel anxious if you're nervous. I've even got university students and teenage kids who are struggling with stress at school who I'm teaching this to and basically what it does is anytime you're out breath as longer than your in breath, you basically help to switch off the stress part of your nervous system. And you help to activate the relaxation parts of your nervous system. And so if you do that three, four, 5 breath, 5 times, it takes a minute, right? You will be in a different state at the end of that minute than at the start of that minute. That is, in so many ways, a form of meditation, a form of mindfulness. And so I don't know if I can get you to commit to their summer on air, which is not on our recording. But this is the sort of thing I do, I say, look, is there any reason, okay, let's do it another way, a kind of way. Is there any reason you think you can't commit to doing that for the next week every time you brew your coffee, you can't do one minute of breathing? There's absolutely nothing other than just laziness. But do you think that have I made it simple enough where because the whole point of this was you saying you're struggling to build meditation in. Yes. So I was thinking, okay, let's think outside the box here. What could we do? But partly because my perception of meditation is not aligned with my identity because my perception of a meditator is somebody a lot more a lot more chilled out than me. Do you see what I mean? Yeah, no, I get it. It's what you're talking about. I bet identity change is I have to start seeing myself as a meditator. Exactly. But it's baby steps. And so maybe that's too much of a leap at the moment, but I would bet that if for a week or two, you did one minute of deep breathing, every morning, right? And you wouldn't have to here's the thing. You don't have to create time here. I'm really interested. When the kettle's on, right, so obviously you've got your cavity air out, you put two spoons in and the kettle's on, right? In the, you know, how long does it have to say? Obviously it depends how much water you're putting in it. Let's say it takes a minute to boil. What are you doing in that minute? Probably washing up my keep cup, drying it. Because it's probably been in this thing going on. Yeah, fine. Okay. So, okay, you're doing something else. A lot of people will be using that time to sort of scroll on social media or maybe emails. But in many ways, you're not having to create that much extra time if any, that is a process that's happening anyway. Or it could even be, here's what I use, I used to do this one. I've actually recently have quick coffee and I'm going to an experiment as to what I'm like off coffee. And apart from the withdrawal symptoms, which were horrific. I'm actually feeling really good and a lot calmer since I've since I've quit actually. Did you try mushroom coffee? Not yet, but I want to say, that's something on my radar. I was thinking about this just yesterday, actually. But the point is, I used to, I used to be quite obsessed with way out the grounds, and then when I pour the water into the cafeteria and I time it for four minutes, that's how long it would be brewing for. And in those four minutes, I had a step, a kitchen step. One of these kind of exercise steps in the kitchen. And I would do literally three or four minutes of just body weight exercises around that step. So I didn't have to think about finding time for a workout on the day. I would want my morning coffee and I would use those four minutes effectively. And that's how I built that habit into my day. And what I'm really hoping for is that meditation can be scary with some people. It doesn't necessarily fit with every person, particularly depending on what their perception is. Deep breathing is a fantastic way to lower yourself away from your stress thresholds. When you're feeling stress and anxious, your breathing changes. It's a refractory, it's a mirror reflection of your mental states, right? Your breathing goes faster, you start to breathe more with your chest than you do with your diaphragm.

"You go into reactive mode, you'll reacting to what other people, what the world wants you to react to, whether it's the news, whether it's social media, whether it's your emails, whether it's text messages, you've lost control over your own thoughts. You're giving it up to somebody else. And really, really big tip for me is, can you have a bit of phone free time in the morning? Even if you need to have your phone on because some people, myself are clear to use a meditation app on our phone, put it in airplane modes. Ultimately, I'd love people to think about a golden hour first thing in the morning where their phone is on airplane mode. If it's on at all. And if people listen to this, I really challenge you to try this a four or 5 days and just notice the difference. Notice how less reactive you feel notice how you're feeling at lunchtime on the days where you have lots of your phone first saying and notice how you feel at lunchtime on the days where you haven't lots of things because these stress doses accumulates. So the one way to deal with it because the reality is some of our days are stressful. So we need to take ownership of some of the time that we've got. So I think that's a really good set for people. Another tip I'd say and this is something that is really changed my stress levels and my well-being is having a morning routine. And this really fits into what you're saying about making lists. So a morning routine for me. In that book, I call it zoning in. Because I think it's just, we need to think about how we're going to zone in every morning. I love it. I love how you editorialize. You've got a zoning in and I'm guessing zoning out. Amazing. Well, yeah, well you know. Well, it's just basically it's to try and bring it to life for people, isn't it? You've been writing for years. I haven't it's only like in the last I was going to say T is in the last 13 months that I became an author, right? Now I'm two time warfare. And so it's like, how do you bring how do you bring these stories in these ideas to life in a book? That's what I've really tried to do. So, yeah, how do we zone in every morning? Well, and I've used this with myself. I've used it with patients. I've used it with busy people with busy lives. Many people who've got kids who say, I can't do it. I want you to talk them into and persuade them that actually they can fit it in. Good morning we see you can say 5 minutes, it can take an hour. It depends how long you've got, right? Mind currently has taken around 15 minutes and it seems to be working for me. But I think one useful way to design a morning routine is to think about what I call the 3M's. Mindfulness, movement, and mindset. Now, it's just a simple way of covering a lot of bases. So my own personal one is I wake up in the morning. I'll put my phone on. Now, I actually charge my phone in another room that's not my bedroom because if I bring my phone into my bedroom, I can't resist looking at it. I can't resist looking at it last thing at night in bed. So I actually leave it in my kitchen, charging. So it's nowhere near the bedroom. So I'll get up. I'll go downstairs. I'll put my phone on and put it in airplane modes. And then I'll go on the calm meditation at the ten minutes. And I'll just set that. And I'll do ten minutes of meditation. Now, some days, all I do is go through my to do list, right? The old me would have beat myself up over that said, I didn't meditate right today. You couldn't switch your mind off. I should have learned that you just accept it. That is, I just go, you know, I've got a pretty busy mind today, okay? That's fine. It's the act of doing it every day. It's the routine of doing it, where you get the benefits. So I do that for ten minutes. Then I move to the second M, which is movement. I will do two or three minutes. If I got a bit longer, maybe 5 minutes of just movement, some hip stretches, maybe I'll do some yoga poses, some press ups, anything just to get my body moving. And then the final thing is mindsets. And mindset is about doing something positive to get your to get your brain and your mind primed for the day ahead and putting it into the white frame of minds. And this can be anything. This can be reading 5 minutes of a one of your favorite books that you find is uplifting. One thing I love doing is affirmations. I think affirmations are really, really good. This whole chapter on affirmations in the book and it's about these kind of short, powerful statements that feed your brain the right information. There is actually really quite a lot of science on it now on affirmations. It says of what they do. Undergraduate students who perform affirmations before their exams actually perform better than those who don't. And this is the one I do. And actually, I've got two kids an 8 year old son and a 6 year old daughter, I try and get up early and start my morning we've seen a finish it before they get up, but often my daughter has a 6th sense as to when daddy's up. And she joins me in the second and so for movement, but she's often there for mindset. As we do affirmations together, we literally sit there, we hold hands, and we both stay together, I'm happy, I'm calm. I'm stress free. And we repeat it about 20 times. And at the end of those two minutes, we're both smiling. We both feel calm, and what's interesting is there is benefits actually last all day. It's not just transient in that moment. So I think that's something people can think about. That doesn't have to be that affirmation. We could choose anything we want. But the other thing you can do there in mindset is to a to do list if you want. Instead of doing affirmations or instead of reading, you could say, right, I'm just going to spend two minutes now writing down the three most important things I need to do today. That's it.

"Really feeling a pressure to try and finish, get their kids, take them to after school clubs, elderly parents, and we might also have to be looking after. You add on top of that that many of us have actually moved away from where we grew up for working for opportunity. So we're living in places. Now where we don't have our support networks around us. So there's so much pressure on an individual to actually get stuff done and cope with that stress is on another level. Technology has freed us up in so many ways. But in many ways, it's added an extra burden. So think about holidays, for example, or booking of flights. 15, 20 years ago, you'd be finding a travel agent. And they would take that stress off you and do that for you. Now, you know, it's maybe not the best example, but these days we all now can do that ourselves. Now it's one more thing to do in an already busy day. And I get it. We can buy cheap flights, right? So I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that. But it's all adding to the burden on us that we are having to do ourselves. And it's coming at a cost. And I think with a useful way of looking at this and it's something I'll talk about in the introduction of the book is that we've all got our own personal stress threshold. And that will vary from person to person and it will vary depending on what else is going on in your life. And I've got this idea of micro stress days as versus macro stress cases as a way. Very Tim. Very soon, yeah, as a way of really trying to, it is really, isn't it? As a way of really trying to help people understand the difference between various stressors. Now, macro stress doses are these significant big pieces of stress, such as trauma, abuse, bereavement, divorce, you know, that really do have a significant impact on us. And they need to be dealt with often we need to talk to someone and process those emotions. So that's a macro stress dose. But then I'm also a really focus on what I call micro stress doses. And these are little things that in isolation aren't much. But you add them on top of each other and they accumulate and they bring you closer to your own personal stress threshold. And when you get there, that's when you can't cope. That's when your body feels tight. That's when you feel anxious, nervous. That's when you get over emotional, angry. That's when someone cuts you up in their car and suddenly being calm about that, you get road rage because you have gone past your own threshold. And what I think is so useful is if you take an average person today. Right? And when they wake up in the morning, you can accumulate a ton of micro stress tests before you've even left the house. So the example I'd give is let's say you went to bed late because you were binging on Netflix a night before, which is something you get out of my house. So you went to bed late and actually sleep on sleep and a lack of good quality sleep, actually. I wasn't going to go here now, but it's really important. It's probably one of the biggest stresses on the body. Because when you have a snack well, everything's trickier. You're more emotional, you're more reactive. When you haven't slept well, your decision making is poor. You concentration goes down. When you haven't slept well, the emotional part of your brain, the amygdala, is significantly more reactive up to 60% more reactive when you haven't slept well. That's the part of your brain that makes you anxious, that makes you hyper vigilance. Our anxiety is like epidemic at the moment, right? And I'm just saying that we've got to be prioritizing sleep as a big, big thing. You sleep well, and everything seems better the following day. I think we all know that. But that's a micro stress test. And basically, let's say you went to bed like, you're wrong, let's say it goes up at 6 30. So you're lying in bed, you're in a deep sleep, and the alarm on your phone goes off. That's micro stress test number one is jolting you out of your deep sleep. That is a mini well, a microdose of stress. Then you think, actually, I'm knackered. I've had probably gone to the ten minutes, snooze. And I haven't been into your house, okay? No, you're looking at me as if I have not been into your house. So you put the sleeves button on. And 6 minutes or 7 minutes later, the alarm goes off again. That's micro stressors number two. Then you think, oh, you know, I'd better get up and actually start this day. So you pick your phone up. You can go and see work emails. And there's four emails and answer them yesterday. I've got to get back to them today. My question stressed those number three. Then you go to social media and you might read a nasty comment on your last post. Micro stress dose number four. Notification from the gas company say, no, you gas bills due today. Microsoft says number 5. And before you know it, in the one hour before you leave the house, you could have accumulated 15 micro stratos. What does that mean? That means you will be leaving your house much closer to your personal stress threshold than you would have otherwise, which means it takes less stress in the day for you to tip over. It's more likely you're going to react when someone sends you an email at work that you don't like or when someone cuts you up on the roads. And my whole approach is to try and show people where these micro stress doses are, and then give them some strategies and say, hey, look, why don't we limit that in the morning? Instead of 15, why don't we see if we can get that down to 5 before you've left the house in the morning? And you're going to be much more resilient for the day ahead. Is something as simple as a to do list? I actually, and I'm again person experience. I would get up, start walking to the kitchen to make a coffee, and then think must turn the computer on. And then I have to take a deep breath and I carry my post at pad around and go right. Email, computer, Bill, and then I just know, well, I'm not going to miss them. And I have to trust myself that I'm going to do them. Do you think compartmentalizing and just not being so now, I must do it now this second, which we're all a bit more reactive and a bit more knee jerk than I think we used to be. A 100%, I think we are now spending our lives reacting to things. We're not planning. We're not getting ahead of ourselves. We're just reacting to what needs to be done. And I think on a wider level, that really reflects how we live our lives. So many of us, the first thing we do in the morning is look at our phone. Now, genuinely, and I do do this sometimes still. I try my best not to. But I think looking at your phone first in the morning, I think it's one of the worst things you can do for your stress levels or for your mental health. And the reason is this, as soon as you look

"Every day. Mental health problems are on the rise. Mind the mental health charity mindset about one in four of us in the UK in any given year, going to have a mental health problem. That's a staggering statistic. Really, really staggering. And there's no one size fits all. Talking about it with someone is one of the most helpful things we can do. Of course, as a dot so I'd say go and see a doctor and talk about it, but some people don't feel comfortable doing that. So if you've got a friend if you've got a colleague, if you've got someone, you know, anyone, a family member, a friend of the family, someone who you feel, you know what? I could talk to them. I would just urge people to set every cup of tea and just share the way you're feeling. Because often just sharing it, and hearing someone else's perspective can make a big difference. I think when we keep this thing inside and these thoughts go around in our hat, they can be like a vicious cycle that can become a lot worse than they are because we just kept it locked inside us. If someone's listening to this and they think, you know what, I don't have anyone. I really don't have anyone. I can talk to. I say, we'll start writing it down. Write the way you feel down. There's a whole section in my book, the stress lesion on reframing the day. And how can you reframe what has happened to you, or your perception of what's happened in the day, and as if you stress you as a guy, one of them is to write it down because when you write things down, you're a bit kinder to yourself. In your heads, you can replay a situation and you can be pretty cruel to yourself. We treat ourselves in a way that we want to treat a friend. We want to treat someone else. You write it down. It's a lot harder to do that. You start to become a lot more rational. Another thing that people can do is try and replay that situation as if they were commentating on that situation as an observer. So let's say, for example, someone feels as though someone was really mean to them at work. And it's really upset them and they're feeling lower about it. Well, they can try and remove themselves from the situation and say, okay, if you were commentating on that issue, you were watching it, what actually happens, you say, well, you know what? Well, that person came up to me. No, not to me. That person, you know, I don't know. Sally came up to Julie and wasn't very nice. Julie actually starts to look quite sad, but ultimately she realized that Sally actually didn't have much sleep the night before because her daughter was sick. I know it sounds like a little bit a little bit out there, but actually these are the sort of tools that a lot of psychologists use as well to help us reframe a situation. And I find it incredibly useful when people talk about stress and mental health. For people who are struggling, it can be very, very useful. But even for any one of us who probably wouldn't consider ourselves to have a mental health problem, it can be very useful way of reframing situations in our day. And ultimately stress on so many levels is our perception of an event. So one thing that you might have found stressful, I may not and vice versa. So I think the key thing there, I think, is to talk about things. If you can. And if you can't write them down. I might be projecting a little bit onto you here, but when I realized I needed to go and see a therapist and see my doctor about my mental health, it was when it became very, very apparent that I had got to the ripe old age of 37. And had no coping mechanisms. So everything, whether it was a perceived slight by a stranger on the London underground or an email from somebody that I didn't quite like the tone of everything mounted or just came into being this huge, horrible thing that I couldn't cope with. So then when bigger things happened, I was useless. And I wondered about whether you see that as specifically coping strategies as being something that maybe our parents generation were Copa. But maybe now we seem less able because we have more stimulus. I don't know. Yeah, it's a great point. I think having coping strategies is so important. I think it's always been important, but I think now in 2019, I don't think it's ever been this as important as it is now, for sure. Think about it on one level. We're not really taught these coping strategies, are we? We're not taught them at school. We're not taught them when we leave school. We just sort of get on with life and we accumulate these stresses. And we think we're just about trying to do whatever we can to keep our head above water. And then sometimes it just gets so much that we actually break down and we just can't cope anymore. And it's only then that we start looking for, oh, I need some coping strategies. Whereas in we wait for things to get so bad before we address that. And actually that is one of the reasons I wrote this book is actually to help teach people some simple coping strategies, even if they don't feel too stressed. Because the reality is, these days, stress is everywhere, stress affects all the fuss. I don't think we've ever lived in a more stressful era. And I think it was different 30 40 years ago. I really do think it was. I think life was simpler on so many levels. One example, the blurring now between, well, the boundaries between our work life and our personal life, just pretty much aren't there anymore. To a technology and emails, many of us are checking our emails are working as in the evening or on a Saturday or on a Sunday. 15 years ago, we weren't doing that. We shouldn't underestimate the impact it is having on us by doing that. That's one thing. There's so much pressure now with social media, I'd say that many of us now we feel the pressure to keep our email inbox up to date, which frankly I can't do. I'm not particularly good on an email inbox. I don't find it the most efficient way of communicating. And I'm always behind. Conflicting demands, conflicting priorities,

"He goes away. He comes back about four weeks later. And I say, hey, how did you get on? Have you managed to go? He said, hey Doc, you know what? I thought I'd be really busy. The gym's not really on the way home from work. It's quite expensive. I've not really done anything. I think that moment I thought, I tell you what I didn't think. I didn't think he's not done what I told him to do. I don't know if that's unusual or not. But I never thought that I just thought I've clearly not given him advice that he feels as relevant to him in the context of the rest of his life. I know in that moment I thought right, I'm going to teach him that work out right now. So I took my jacket off. And I said, okay, fair enough. I thought, I'm going to teach you a 5 minute kitchen workout. You don't need to join a gem. You don't need to buy any clothes. You don't need to get changed. You can do it anytime, anywhere. And I said, all I want you to do is do that for 5 minutes twice a week. And he says, is that all Doc? I'm like, yeah, that's all I'm waiting to do. If he goes away, he comes back about 6 weeks later, I said, how are you getting on? He says, I love it. I started off doing 5 minutes twice a week. But every time now we're going to my kitchen, dinnertime. I'll do maybe 5 or ten minutes of these exercises off and do it 6 times a week. And that really taught me something, which is you got to make the information relevant to people busy people with busy lives. There's no good, obviously I've written a book on stress. I could say to you, Emma, that the best way to de stress is to do two or three hours of yoga a day. Probably is. But he's got time for that. And so in a way, that's kind of what I try and do with my books is to break it down and actually give people simple tools that they actually think, you know what? I think I could fit that into my day. Yeah, well, I'm going to give it a go. I'm certainly trying anyway. Because I think particularly amongst my Friends, for example, so a lot of women and a lot of listeners who write in, they feel, yes, I want to be fitter. Yes, I want to be leaner or slim or whatever it might be. But then it might come with the caveat, but I'm not an Instagram fitness model, or I'm not this type of person. And it doesn't have to be as big a shift of one day you're you and then the next day you have to become a little bit like a fit spoke person on Instagram. It's not that big of a leap, is it? It really isn't. And there's a wider point there, which is sometimes for all the good that social media can do. And there is good there. There's no question. A lot of these fitness poses and pictures that we see can be off putting for many people and say, well, you know what? I don't think I could do that work out. It could also be, I don't look like that when I'm in the gym. I mean, some of the photos you see, you think, you know, with men and women alike is sometimes people they look as though they were a photo shoot in the gem. I know what I look like after workout, the sweat all over my face. My hair looks appalling. You know, and that's what I look like and I don't know really. It confuses me because on one level, I think, yes, it's helpful to inspire people. And I think some people respond to that really well, but on another level, some people just get put off and think, well, I'm not going to look like that. So that's not for me. And so I really one thing I try and do when I'm on social media is it's an overused word these days, but I try to be authentic. I try, I try and just post it the way it is. I'm sure I don't always manage to do that. Because I think we're all susceptible to that pressure in terms of how we post and all that kind of stuff, but I think the more real we can be, the more authentic we can be. And certainly in my books, I share a lot of myself. I share some of my own personal stories. I share patient stories and the reason I do that is to bring this stuff to life for people. Yes, give them the science, but then bring it to life in a way that people think, hey, that's me. I could do that. I wonder if I did that. I wonder if that would change my life. So that's really my whole approach. One of the we're talking about stress and mental health is such a big topic at the moment and this week I just published an episode where I talked about my practical tips of top tips for mental health, which made it sound a little bit twee, but it just, you know, it says what it was. Obviously, if somebody sits in front of me in the doctor's surgery and says, I'm having issues with my mental health or I'm depressed. It's not something you can get a blood test for and get a specific result and go, yeah, a 100% confirmed. If someone is struggling with mental health and it is quite an intangible thing and it's different for every single person. Where does one begin? What would you say to the individual? How would you cater that approach? Yeah, so I guess if someone's listening to this and

"Hi and welcome to another episode of the Everglades. Oh, we're revisiting another favorite. Before we get into the new, the newfangled, the razzle dazzle of the new incarnation of the emigrant show. And this is where one of your absolute favorite. Not only episodes, this is one that has been listened to and downloaded time and time again since it was first published. Back in 2019, I believe, this is also one of your favorite guests. It's doctor wrong and chastity. Who I actually bumped into the other day. It was very pleasant. So, stress. That's what we're going to be discussing in this episode. And it's very likely that you have felt stressed at some point in your life. Perhaps you feel stressed right now. But what used to be a characteristic of short term pressures, so you'd say that you were stressed if you had a deadline or if you had exams looming or if a big event was coming up, it's not a constant state. Stress is designed, the body is actually designed to deal with short term bouts of stress. But somehow modern living has made stress and this constant feeling of stress. Something that we feel is rumbling along at all times. And we have so much vocabulary, so much more vocabulary than we've ever had before. To describe our feelings of stress, so stress, which used to be the great big umbrella term, I suppose. Now you might say tension, you might say strain. Perhaps you'll talk about anxiety or your reference your nervousness. You might even say that you feel distressed or that you have trauma or there's an upset going on, maybe you're fearful, maybe you're agitated. You're exhausted, you're fatigued all of these things and there are so many more words I could say. But all of these things are describing a tension a stress on the mind body and soul. That is overwhelming. Stress doesn't feel good in the long term, certainly doesn't feel good in the moment either, and it can be draining and it can impact our lives in our relationships. In ways that we simply can't compute. So, as I mentioned, as we revisit some of the most impactful conversations from the Emma gun show, it felt appropriate to reissue one that so many of you not only love, but have said to have as impacted, you really positively and allowed you to make changes and take action to relieve the stress in your lives. And that's what I hope every episode of the Everglades show does, whether it's for one person, or have many people, afford you the insight from an expert from a guest to be able to see your situation through a slightly different lens. Perhaps more objectively and then make helpful changes. So it's my conversation with doctor Wong in tragedy. I know he's a fan favorite with listeners and he is characteristically calm, reassuring and knowledgeable while sharing a ton of practical and crucially those actionable tips for you to immediately implement should you need them to lighten your load. I want to have less stress in your life. It's time for wrong contrast to explain how on

"Other words, we can't control our external circumstances. We can't control the stimulus, but we can control our response or way of thinking about it feeling about it interacting with it. You know, he's joking, you know, James Bond has a gun to his head. It's one experience for him. If Woody Allen has a gun to his head, same gun, very different internal experience and interpretation. So it's often the interpretation and meaning we give to our lives that causes the discomfort and the unhappiness. And that's so important to understand that we literally have that power, but it's really all of our conditioning and our fears and our beliefs and our traumas that create a set of filters for the world that inhibit us from actually having a direct experience of what is. Yeah, now for sure Mark, I couldn't agree more I thought that quote is there at the back of my studio, my daughter wrote a couple of me when she was 7 years old. It's one of the most important quotes in my life because it's understanding that in every single situation in life, we have a choice in what story we put onto it and it's that story we put onto it that determines the effect it has on us and this is very important for our physical health but just to finish off or just to follow up on that thread there with bits of frankel, one of the most powerful conversations Mark I've ever had in my life was on my podcast about two years ago with this wonderful lady called doctor Edith eager. Now when I spoke to her, she was 93 years old when she was when she was 16. She grew up in Eastern Europe. She got a knock on the door and with no warning her parents, her and her sister got put on a train to Auschwitz concentration camp. Within two hours of getting there, both of her parents were murdered, right? Wow. And I tell you there's a few things from that conversation that are imprinted into my soul. Number one, she said later that day, after my parents were killed, I was asked to dance for the senior prison guards. And I never forgot doctor chastity the last thing that my mom said to me. My mother said to me, eating, nobody can ever take from you the contents that you put inside your mind. So she said to me, when I was dancing, I was not dancing in Auschwitz. In my mind, I was dancing in Budapest opera house. I had a beautiful dress on. There was an orchestra playing. There was a full house in my mind. That's what I was dancing in. And Mark, I thought, okay, that's pretty incredible. Then she said, in the following years, whilst in Auschwitz, she started to see the prison guards as the prisoners. She said they weren't living their life. In my mind, I was free. I thought that was pretty incredible Mark. And then the final thing she said to me, which I think about pretty much every day, she said, wrong and I can tell you this. Listen, I have lived in Auschwitz. And I can tell you that the greatest prison you will ever live inside is the prison you create inside your own minds. Absolutely. And this is what we do, Mark, every day your patients, my patients, our cells, potentially we create this mental turmoil with the way we interpret things. And one of the, one of the chapters in the book is my favorite chapter chapter 5 at school seek out friction. And I would say, this is probably the thing that's had the biggest impact on my happiness, but also my physical health over the past few years. It's this understanding that in every situation I can choose a different response. So seek out friction means, look for social friction in your life, right? And use it as a teacher. So if someone cuts you up in the roads, instead of going, oh, I can't believe they're dead that. They shouldn't be driving. They should get their wise checks, right? What we don't realize is that creates emotional tension in our body. That emotional stress is not neutral. It leads to what I call junk happiness habits, which you can maybe we can touch on later, but you don't have to take that response. You can actually in the book one of my tips is to say, make that other person a hero. What story do you need to create in your mind to make that person a hero? Ah. Maybe that person is running late for his job and he's scared he's going to lose it and he won't be able to pay his mortgage. Maybe it's a mother whose daughter was up last night with earache. You know what? What I've learned Marcus for your happiness, the truth of the situation actually doesn't matter. What matters is the story you put on top of it. Yeah, I mean, that's what gabara montes has, but trauma isn't what happens to you as the meaning you make from what happens to you. And I think we have awful things that do happen to people and certainly they've happened to me, but it's how you transmute those and how you think about them and the prisons of your own mind. You're right. The greatest prisons we have are our own minds. And they keep us from happiness. Yeah, and what I'd say is it really, really practical thing that people can do, right? The first really super practical thing I'm going to talk about is every day if you can, but even once a week, look for some friction in your life, social friction, right? I call it working out on the social gym instead of the physical gym, work out in the social chip. Maybe there was an email from your boss that really bothered you and you were like, I can't believe my boss sent that to me. I've worked in this company for 5 years. They should know that I know how to do my job. Understand that you are creating a disempowering narrative, and that is creating tension and stress in your body that you will need a junk happiness habit like sugar or alcohol or too much time on social media or staying at blade on box sets, whatever your need to neutralize that in some way instead practice rewriting that story. Think about what else can you say, oh, you know, what might be going on in my boss's life. Maybe my boss is under pressure. Maybe my boss has a sick child. As I say, you know, I said the truth for your happiness doesn't matter. And Mark, for some people, that's quite a controversial statement. For sure. But let me make it really practical for people. Most people listening know the feeling of being in a relationship when there is a disagreement or an argument. And if anyone listening or watching does not know that feeling, trying to imagine what it might be like..

"Because I would see people Tom, who would make changes to their lifestyle, they'd feel great, and then they'd go back to where they were before, I thought, well, this is not a knowledge problem, right? These guys know the information they felt the difference, why'd they gone back? Other people, you know, made great changes to their lifestyle, but they were still struggling. I thought, what am I missing? What's going on here? And that's why I dive into the research. That's why I reviewed my 20 year practice and go, which patients truly transform their life. And the research very clearly shows that actually happiness is a key driver for health. So for me, I actually think happiness, mental well-being, the way you think about the world the way you approach the world actually is more important than your lifestyle, because actually many of our lifestyle behaviors or lysol choices are downstream consequences. From the way that we see the worlds, right? You mentioned Edith egerton. That conversation had with Edith on my podcast literally changed my life. I was not the same person after that conversation as I was before it because I thought if she can reframe the most harrowing of human experiences and she can write a different story in her mind, well I can do that in my life. There's nothing in my life that compares to what she went through if she can reframe it that I can. And when we learn to reframe things and that's a very powerful chapter in the book called seek out friction, which is my favorite chapter because it's the one that's had the biggest impact on me when you understand. That every single situation in life has multiple perspectives and you can train yourself to choose what I call the happiness perspective, you don't create emotional stress in your body. This is another thing that I think a lot of people don't realize. Emotional stress is real. A lot of people think, yeah, I've got a great diet, move my body, I'm focusing on my sleep. But actually, the email from their boss that they don't like, really triggers them, like, man, I can't believe my boss did that. Does he not know I've worked in this company for four years? I know how to do my job. How dare he speak to me like that? Whatever it disempowering narrative it might be that creates emotional stress. That emotional stress needs to be neutralized in some way usually with a junk cap and a habit. It's the same thing as people drive to work and they get cut up on the roads and they then go into this whole mindset of, man, stupid driver, I shouldn't have a driving license, can't believe he did that. Right? That creates emotional stress. If people are honest with themselves, they'll realize that they might have a few extra coffee cider, a bit extra sugar, another chocolate bar might need a few extra beers later to dissipate that stress. And so I passionately believe that focusing on these simple steps to improve our happiness will have a very, very powerful downstream effect on your physical health and your lifestyle behaviors. And that really was my motivation to write this book Tom. Facts. The book is happy mind, happy life. I highly encourage you guys to get it. It is phenomenal. Where can they follow along with you? Yeah, so guys, the books available all over the world now. Happy mind happy life as you say, the new science and mental well-being. You get it in all the usual places. I think the best place on social is probably my Instagram at doctor Chatterjee. And if people like podcasts like yours, I'm very lucky to host the largest health podcast in Europe. It's called feel better live more. You can watch it here on YouTube or in all the usual places on audio podcast apps. And it's amazing. I can definitely vouch for that.

"Thing. I don't know if you've heard of a chap called Johnny Wilkinson or not. Johnny Wilkinson is one of England's most famous rugby players. He was probably one of the most famous rugby players in the world in the early 2000s. In 2003, he achieved all of his dreams, right? So when he was a kid Tom, he wrote down when I'm older. I want to play for England and I want to win the World Cup. Now here's the problem for him at the age of 24. He achieved his dreams. Right? 24, he's playing for England. Not only do they win the World Cup, he kicks the winning goal in the final minutes of the World Cup final, he came on my show REITs laney, and he shared. That actually even before that ball had gone through the goal, he started to go down downwards inside the next morning, he can't get out of bed, depressed, anxiety. That's so cool. For years, he in the chills. He achieved it, he achieved his dreams. That's why in chapter one, I make quite a provocative statement, your dreams won't make you happy. Right? And I want to add a caveat there. Your dreams won't make you happy unless your intentional about them. So what I think many people have learned from over the past couple of years, particularly with all the restrictions and the fact that people can't move around and do the things that they've wanted to do and always used to do, I think a lot of people have reflected on their lives, like what's truly important for them. You know, what is it that truly makes them happy and feel content? So there's a really simple exercise in the book that I think is deceptively simple. It's very, very powerful. And I don't know, Tom, if you're interested, I could try it on you right now if you're up for it. Sure, I've seen you do this. Let's go, let's go. Yeah, have you got prepared answers? I don't actually. Okay, good. Okay, so top of your head, don't overthink it, right? If I was to ask you, what are three things you could do this week, that if you did them, would truly make you happy and content, can you name three things? So for sure, spend time with my wife, right creatively, and it would be a third. Meditate. Okay. And then the second part of this exercise is what I call write your own happy ending. So now, fast forward, Tom bilie on his deathbed, right? Looking back on your life, what are three things you will want to have done? Yeah, so I may think differently about the deathbed than most people. So this will be interesting. When I'm on my deathbed, what I will be thinking about was did I love my wife and elevate her and make her feel awesome and really get that relationship to thrive. And then I will ask, did I turn my potential into usable skill set? And then did I use that skill set in a way that actually fulfilled me and helped other people, but I think I really think on my deathbed that it's going to be a bit of a, it's just a frame of reference game. And you talk a lot about Edith eger Edith. Who survived Auschwitz who, just the stories insane. And her whole thing is basically how are you looking at the situation? So for instance, I think that on my deathbed, I will, I will probably regret that I didn't have kids. But I don't regret it now. And so I've primed myself on how to think about it because on my deathbed, I will want something to live beyond me, right? I can already feel that. So I get how at that point, especially if, I mean, look, as much as I want to believe that these YouTube videos are live forever, I know better. And so I can feel that tug now that's one of the ways that nature ensures that you have children. So I do think on my deathbed, I might perform a slightly different act than other people, sort of, however I end up, I'm going to frame it in a way that is optimistic because I'm about to peace out. So, and I think that speaks to a lot of your book, but tell me if you think I'm crazy. No, I love that. You're someone who it doesn't surprise me, lives a very intentional life. You know, I had the pleasure of speaking to Lisa yesterday on my show, right? We had a long conversation and she was sharing the game that you guys often play the no BS game what's it gonna take? Right? So this is a very intentional game where you guys literally, you know, instead of having wild dreams, you break it right down, and you specify what is the goal, what literally will it take to get there. So it doesn't surprise me that you and Lisa are people who are very intentional about how you're choosing to live your life. And Lisa's book and you've mentioned before, you guys have intentionally chosen not to have kids. So it's really interesting for me to hear, you saying that actually, despite that intentional decision that we made, you feel that you may regret that on your deathbeds. Now, I think for many people what this exercise is about, it's about intentionality. It's not about beating yourself up. For example, Tom some people, most people will say, like you, on my deathbed, I hope I've nourished my friends and family my meaningful relationships. Yet if they look at that wheat to weak life and they realize, wait a minute. I'm working so hard. I know you worked soup on I know many people who watch these videos Tom work really hard. I'm working so hard that actually, I don't have any time to see my wife, see my Friends, see my partner see my kids. And what the exercise does, it just allows you to reorient your life and go, okay, wait a minute. I'm slightly off track here. You know, Tom, I don't know if I've shared this with you on a previous conversation, but I always remember this patient I saw a few years ago. 37 year old chat writes who, from the outside, it looked to say this guy was crushing life. He ran his own business, right? He drove a sports car, he made really good money, he worked on his terms. He didn't have a boss. No one was going to tell him when to work. He worked most weekends, right? He comes in to see me, and he's worried that he's got depression. He says, Doc, I feel low, I'm struggling with motivation. I feel indifferent about things a lot of the time. Is this depression? And we did run a variety of tests with him. I spent some time getting to know him. And I asked him a question. I said, how often do you see Friends? I really don't have time. You know, I'm kind of up to date with what they're doing on Instagram or Facebook, but I'm busy with my business. And the prescription I gave him that day, Tom, honestly, know what if I was, look, what I want you to do for the next few weeks is, once a week, in person, I want to see one of your friends. And when you're with them, try and put your phone away. That was it. And he said, you know, is that all you want? I'm suicidal. I just want you to do that. Focus on that. I'll see you in a few weeks. Now this guy was desperate. I appreciate it wasn't the prescription he was expecting to get from me, but nonetheless, this is what I was picking up. 6 weeks later Tom, he comes back, he's almost bouncing into.

"chatterjee" Discussed on 90.3 KAZU
"As NPR's re to Chatterjee reports, many struggled with symptoms for years. Christina Lozano was 16 when the attacks took place just eight blocks away from her high school the first time the first plane hit I was actually in home room where they take attendance, and then by the time the second plane hit, I was in English class. She remembers the school building, shaking and being hit by debris. And she remembers walking across the Manhattan Bridge with a friend afterwards trying to get home safely. By the time we had made it to the bridge, walking, perhaps halfway One of the towers had finally gone down. And I never forget that just everybody just running In the weeks and months that followed, Lozano struggled to sleep and was easily startled. Any little noise. Honestly, that was loud, like maybe an airplane passing by, uh, kind of being a bit paranoid, paranoid, anxious, and eventually depressed began to really doubt myself my abilities just in terms of performing in school, kind of not really. Caring as well and I was just really living almost like on autopilot. Lozano is among many people in and around New York City who experienced symptoms of mental illness after 9 11. Dr. Sandra Ghalia is the dean of the school of Public Health at Boston University. But back then he was at Columbia University and lead the first long term study of the mental health impacts of the attacks among residents of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. What we found at the beginning was about a doubling of the baseline rate of depression, post traumatic stress disorder. In the general population. He also found that some people were at a higher risk of having symptoms. Groups that had lost loved ones or had lost possessions or had been closer to the event were more likely to have post traumatic stress disorder or depression. While many recovered in about six months, Scalia says about a third continue to struggle over the next three years. Today. 20 years later, many are still struggling. That's according to findings from the World Trade Center Health Registry, which has continued to check in on the health of over 70,000 people. Robert BRAC bill is the director of research at the registry each time we do a survey It's between eight and 10%. You know that have sufficient symptoms and indicate poster rank stress disorder and among people who were closer to the event. For example, those who worked in the towers or rescue and recovery workers, he says the rate of PTSD is even higher about 17 to 18%. Black bills colleague Mark Far fell is the director of the registry. This disaster of 9 11 in New York City has had long term impacts and significant impacts on both. The responders and the self civilian survivors, he says. People enrolled in the registry often have more than one mental and physical health condition, making it harder for them to recover quickly. So, for example, PTSD Often co occurs with depression. And that magnifies the impacts of of the disaster. But far fell, says many who sought mental health care did recover like Christina Lozano, the then 16 year old who walked across Manhattan Bridge after the attacks. She says, enrolling in the registry and responding to its health surveys opened up a door to seeking help. I sought help in college got therapy and therapy was a huge eye opener for me. An eye opener and a path to recovery. Today, Lozano works as a life coach with the 20th anniversary of 9 11 just around the corner. She says she feels emotional but no longer anxious or depressed. Rethought strategy. NPR news On tomorrow's show. We look at a Twitter crackdown in Nigeria. It's a key platform for political discussion and making connections in the gig economy. So how are.

"The involvement of the community at the open hearings is that they Community members can actually comments speak they. There are sometimes patients who come family members of patients who come out and talk some other experts who come in off of their opinions And that has been retained by the fda during this virtual process so in fact for each of the meetings at which april product was being discussed. That wasn't open hearing session of our where various people were able to come and speak. Some pensive was data but Are allowed to give their opinions to the committee and we consider everything then make up our minds based on all of the totality of the evidence that is provided if an incident shared several. Or what are you going to wrap up with. One kind of future looking question dr chatterjee so we are recording this at the beginning of june twenty twenty one this point we have an easy way approval for the pfizer. Vaccine in twelve to fifteen year olds In addition to the us for sixteen and up maderno has announced that they plan to submit new way for those aged twelve to seventeen if you had a crystal ball. And i know you don't but if you did what would you say. The next year is going to look like from covid vaccine standpoint in terms of full approvals of anything younger age groups that are being tested in the. I know you don't know for sure but can you give us a sense of what are likely scenarios moving forward. Yes absolutely again. This is complete speculation. On my part. But i do think that those trials are ongoing in younger children. You know or six to eleven year olds for to find your own so then for six months to two year olds and so those have been announced by both on our end adviser. Expect that sort of going working backwards. No so the six hundred eleven year olds Six months to year-olds we will start to see those data come in and hopefully they will be made available either to not physician process in the or actually licensure process so. I do think that we won't have vaccines available for younger children in the coming months when exactly that's going to happen is very difficult to say because it depends how the trials go and when the When the sponsors submit data to the fda etcetera. But i do think that's going to happen. The second thing with regard to license a full license. And i do believe that. That is also going to happen as these trials. Progress in the manufacturer's acquire more data. it's really a matter of more data do they need to submit to the g. for the actual licensure and that's a question. That's very difficult to answer. It really depends again on on how they look and how much more we need to evaluate those. But i do expect End as being media reports as you know off some of these companies putting forward license applications So that i think is probably also going to happen. And then they are..

What i love about that story actor chatterjee is that adversity comes in many different forms throughout life. And you can't predict it and it's something that can't avoid and you just have to kind of roll with the punches and and take it in and move forward and. I think that that's always need to see that happen in. I think everyone listening can take that in apply to their own lives in terms of other hardships that they've had or adversities that have come up and kind of that grit to accept it for what it is. Move forward and make the best of it. I love it. I did want to switch gears a little bit. We are talking about covid and you have been interviewed quite a bit for your involvement on this committee through the fda called the vaccine in related biological products advisory committee. Could you just tell us a little bit more about the committee. What it is in be more importantly. Can you tell us how you get involved in it. Was it something you're interested in that you can have decided that you wanted to go get involved in it or was it more that you're asked to be part of it. So as far as the the committee itself goes.

Pertaining to the fact that stocky dot org is one of oldest organization of its kind. And i want to know. How did you get involved. And what motivates you on a day to day basis in this incredibly critical wolf So i had been working with survivors of gender based violence in students and nine. And i knew that sake. The leader in the field and i was working directly with sake. What's the key was one of the critical partners so when time so presented i joined sucky team and it was three years ago and since then it has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life and it is so because it is an amazing team be. It is an amazing team of some really committed people and we bring in our stories and understanding of gender based violence so this whole journey of growing very very important to me and says i get to do that at five here gift to expedience at. Its second that. I value my time here. So much. More ward motivates. Me is the fact that the could heroes right like when a caller is calling the health line there is starting to movement and just the fact that i'm a part of that movement. I'm able to witness. Smoking affects a very very special enforcement. Feeding i said this cold of my answer each time a woman stands for hersal without knowing it brasa believe without claiming it. She stands up for all of them. And this is what i see every day like a caller who most most hardly she is a survivor and timo petrie accurate. She was serious to believe a certain way. There were few things that she thought was novel. Right and wonderful was widely just is how women are supposed to be. This is how they're treated in your family's in around them so forth for a person who was raised to believe this vanity wanted the side and tell them and they're going to pick up the phone and they're going to call our helpline or call one and they will bring that change for themselves and their children and people around i can. That's a very powerful moment. So the fact that i get to see that add the fact that they decide to boost the status quo and stand up for themselves added. This is amazing and that is what we should all celebrate. That is what i celebrate to silently. And that is what motivates me to do this work which is not always easy but as always fulfilling while that is such a beautiful point. You're right because look. I just did a podcast with dr. Who shot milona and it was based on an epidemic authored regarding in josh 'rational trauma within the immigrant community are data and domestic violence featured prominently intimate partner violence. And so you bring up a great point that the fact you recognize that while that's really heartening like that person reaching out to you that is a very revolutionary step in their development. It does not come easy and back. it's often generational. They may have seen this around them. Like you said with our culture and so the fact that they are being embraced by somebody like yourself or your colleagues that that really speaks volumes. Because you care and you know it you recognize where they're coming from at deeply empowering move probably lifesaving because we don't often talk about the fact that you know i mean there's so much physical risk and risk to self that you face until you're able to make that brave step so that that thank you for sharing that i can see how if you your job from that perspective the life The worker doing is so incredibly important.

How to Recognize Symptoms of Suicidal Behavior
"Emily kwong here joined re chatterjee. Npr's mental health correspondent. So i want to start this conversation in a place of awareness. How can you even tell if a loved one. Be feeling suicidal. Well lassine says watch for certain warning signs. Most obvious is probably just talking about death and talking about suicide bitching it either casually or even if it's jokingly or specifically talking about it for themselves and then there are the less of your science like sudden changes in behavior there will be changes in their mood usually towards greater agitation or greater sadness increased anger and irritability changes in substance use so Radically increasing the amount of substance use or beginning to use substances. If they hadn't done that before there's some changes in sleep or eating now. During the pandemic law people may be experiencing these changes in behavior sleep patterns mood. It doesn't mean that they're all thinking about dying but having mental health issues does increase people's risk of suicide but it can take a wild before someone goes from being depressed feeling so hopeless that they don't want to live anymore and this gives friends and loved ones opportunities for prevention right. The way to think about this is to identify and help people with these mental health problems before they get to a point of crisis exactly You know. I spoke with psychologists or sula whiteside. She studies suicide prevention of the university of washington and also started. This website called now matters now which feature stories of survivors of suicide attempts. And she says it's important to pay attention if someone is withdrawing from friends and family and their regular activities

"Thanks so much for joining us. Yeah thanks for the opportunity. Great to be with you. Yes so talk to us a little bit about about you or not. What is it about health care that inspires you to stay focused on the field shirt. So i guess if i start off on a personal note i would say that medicine and health care are very much embedded in my in my dna. I come from a line of physicians that spans multiple generations and grew up with these stories of different patient encounters. Different clinical settings. So everyone my grandfather. My father my sister. My brother-in-law are all either physician or health services. Researchers are both could imagine that are thanksgiving discussion. They're pretty much heated. You know conversation over the state of health policy. Today you know type of my family. I had the opportunity to see across the healthcare system in in various roles over the last ten twelve years now and and kind of had a bite in in consulting in pharma in the government space in academia and. I think the thing that that keeps me going is that have been fortunate to be part of you. Know what. I what. I call these. The health dare movement and be they're gonna pivotal changes or sort of tectonic shifts in our healthcare system. I'm gonna happen within the last decade and kind of fundamentally transform the industry but also kind of thinking about how the healthcare system as a whole as evolving so some of the stuff that you you mentioned in my bio whether it was working on the affordable care act which was such a you know important piece of legislation or being part of of some of these larger data and technology movements even through the lens of the government big things that happened over the last several years and then more recently you know when i was at merck I had a chance to better understand what's commonly called. now it's real world data. Which is everything happening. Outside of data and clinical trials. And could that tie into improving economics research within that company. And i guess my most recent inflate of experiences are really pushing towards. How do you to move the needle in pharma research and development. And how do you better understand. Where data science and technology intersect with that changing space. So the the totality of everything. If you think about how interconnected the system is having those experiences. I have kind of shaped You know my my thinking now and really to where we are today. So that's been fun intents and kind of an inspirational experience to date for me.

My Name is money show Josh I'm a professor of education at the University of San Francisco, thank you for your support of Culebra Guy Way this is an important moment for Asian Americans Berkeley one in five Berkeley residents is Asian American and we have a long and vibrant history here but you wouldn't know that from our streets our schools are parks and our buildings where at a historic folks are calling in to advocate for a street in Berkeley to be renamed Della Guy.

Guy Way to the best of our knowledge. The City of Berkeley has little to no landmarks, monuments or markers recognizing the historical and cultural contributions of Asian Americans or Pacific Islander I for. One and he goes for the Berkeley South Asian radical history walking tour speaking in support of caliber guy way you heard from just a couple of US tonight while others are watching the live streaming APP station of your boat stories of club often ignored by Berkeley institutions, and yet we know that telling of bigger more inclusive history of Berkeley has the power to transform. US and our city, a clever guy we allows us to both honor her and reconcile difficult moments for history.

Preparing For Perimenopause: You Don't Have To Do It Alone
"Today I'm joined by NPR health correspondent and reproductive fairy godmother Chatterjee for some real talk about peri menopause. We're GONNA talk about how the physical symptoms can come with a host of emotional and mental health symptoms to which some people don't realize right exactly But before I say more I just WanNa say that I. Think. I. Love My new title Reproductive Fairy Godmother but anyway getting back to business yes. So sure would go yeah. The physical symptoms can come with a host of emotional mental health symptoms absolutely. So take for example, woman I spoke with Terry, hines now about a decade ago when Terry was in her mid forties how period started to change it increased in frequency it increased in intensity and increased endurance. Now she had some of the classic symptoms of paramount applause laycock flashes, chills started gaining weight which many women do during this time but the would notable changes to her mental health to they just did not have the energy to do the things that I wanted to do was such a fog over who I was what I wanted whereas going. What I was capable of accomplishing I just could not find my footing at the time. Terry. Lived alone in Philadelphia where she worked as an assistant principal at a school. And she really struggled to get out of bed and good work and do the things that she loved to do like taking her dogs for morning walk and she began to withdraw from her friends as well. Yeah. To speaking from experience these all sound like symptoms of depression. You know self-isolation foggy nece low energy exactly, and you know the thing is that Terry actually struggled with depression before and had sought treatment for it and she knew her symptoms she knew what triggers and that that was usually a big change in her personal professional life. But this time though she says, she was just so focused on all the physical changes going on in her body because of premenopausal that her emotional struggles at first, they didn't even register in a mind. Oh so on top of Peri, Menopause Terry was managing depression to exactly and that's not uncommon. Among individuals who have had previous diagnoses or of clinical depression anxiety and this data suggesting that in the leader stages of paramount applause as many as thirty percent of women experience depressive symptoms. I want to put this on the evening news like all persons who experienced presents should be made aware of this. So they're prepared. I mean that's a huge number. So do you have a sense of biologically why they're such a spike? Right. So it's a stage of life when your hormone levels are changing, it's all changing your periods of changing your hormonal Goals are all sort of you know going awry and that can trigger intense changes in mood and psychiatrists that I talk to for the story said that if you're experiencing depression or anxiety during paramount a pause. It's not the changes in your hormonal cycles are unusual. Lawrence say dramatically different from somebody else's but it's more likely that you bring is more sensitive to these changes. So if you've experienced depression before you're more sensitive experiencing it when going through peri menopause exactly now, the other reason is that paramedic plus isn't just a biological change, right? It's also a huge life transition. Because they're all these changes in your body Sharon, it's a big part of aging which coming to terms with your metabolism might be slowing down. You might be mostly processing these things as well, and any big life transitions can affect people's emotional wellbeing
