Next time on Zestology:

When I spoke to my friend Karl Morris on Zestology a while back, it got a big response. He's a leading performance coach in the world of sport and kind of a big deal (though he'd be far too modest to admit that himself).

Last time we looked at designing a good day, and asked the question, 'What does a good day look like'.

So we've gone in for more good days, more staying in the present and more what Karl calls Neutral Thinking.  It all adds up to improving your focus and attention.

Natasha Corrett is one of the UK's best known chefs and healthy eaters. She's got a ridic amount of followers on Insta/Facebook/Twitter etc, but despite all the press she's done and her huge profile, when she met me, it was the first podcast interview she's ever done.

And it was a good one too - very revealing.

I came with at least two things that I'm changing straightaway. One of them, randomly, doesn't involve cooking but high-tech fire alarms. Nice one Natasha and thank you. 

When you listen to the podcast, you'll also hear Natasha and I talking about her, Jamie Oliver, and a very large mushroom. Click here to see the outrageous shroom pic.

Coming up: one of the most emotional stories I've had on Zestology.

Gemma Oaten is a well-known actress here in the UK, rising to fame on Emmerdale. (Try explaining the appeal of Emmerdale to an American!)

Behind her rise though was an almost unbelievable tale of triumph over adversity. She has had it rough. Gemma was only 10 when she first became ill after negative comments at school affected her self esteem. And from there it was a downhill spiral into an eating disorder.

Today on Zestology, Gemma's story of how she nearly lost it all and before getting back to full health and fulfilling her dreams.

The Sleep Doctor - with Dr. Michael Breus #80

How do you sleep? I thought I knew most of the important stuff about sleep, morning routines, and caffeine, but I just interviewed Dr. Oz's sleep doctor specialist, Dr Michael Breus, and he told me some stuff that blew my mind. 

I'm actually writing this with a cup of coffee by my side, and I've changed my morning routine (and coffee routine) because of the information I learnt from Dr. Breus.

He's seriously well qualified. In addition to his private practice where he treats athletes, celebrities, and the like, he also "trains other sleep doctors and consults with major airlines, hotel chains, and retailers to provide the optimum sleep experience for their customers."

So if you're interested in improving your sleep, and therefore performance and energy levels - listen to today's Zestology.

Sascha Kindred has taken part in every Paralympics since Atlanta (yes in the mid 90s). He's got gold medals galore, and all that despite a doctor originally telling him and his family that he would never walk in his life. Coming up:

  • How Sascha overcame adversity to get where he is.
  • The special light-based alarm clock Sascha uses to help him wake up in the morning.
  • Preparation is key, without that he feels lost.
  • His silver medals mean more to him than gold. (Why??)
  • The Queen made a very embarrassing gaffe the first time Sascha met her. (Yes, he's met her multiple times...)

If you like to get motivated by the best, then do listen to today's podcast... Sascha is a very straightforward guy with so much to inspire us with.
