I am delighted to introduce you to the third episode in our series on Optimising Health and Happiness For Humans and Animals, with my special guests, Dr. Timo Tastutar and Lance Schuttler. 

In the first episode (#4) we discussed "What is Health?", and how we can optimise it, and in the second episode (#5) we discussed "What is Happiness?" In this third episode today, we are discussing the important subject of "How Do Our Choices Affect Our Health & Happiness?"

We all know that the choices we make, on a daily basis, and those larger life decisions, can have a huge impact on our health & happiness. This is obviously a huge area, but we hope that, while listening, you can identify something that resonates with you and inspires you to make a change in your life. As always, we also apply this to the animals in our care who are dependent on us to make the best decisions possible for their health and happiness. I love the perspectives that both Lance and Timo bring to this discussion. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Can we, and should we, separate health & happiness, or physical and mental health?
  • The core areas of balancing health & happiness.
  • How stress impacts us on a chemical level within the mind & body.
  • Epigenetics, choice, and how they link to health & happiness.
  • The importance of understanding how our subconscious mind works.
  • Dr. Chatterjee’s 3 Key Pillars of happiness.
  • Key tips on how to sustain health and happiness. 

So sit back, enjoy with an open mind - Stay Curious, and Stay Free, and, very importantly, please do let us know what you think in the comments or the reviews. Thank you.
