I've been trying to get world tapping expert Nick Ortner on my podcast for ages. It's taken a while to persuade him! When I recorded a show with Ashley Meyer of the Energy Therapy Centre, it was one of the most popular. It's no lie to say that when I took 3 months off work because of illness, tapping was the thing that got me back on track. Now Nick has come on to give us the full tapping low down. Let's do tapping again.
Importantly, in this particular podcast, we have a full tapping demo. It's great! (NB - do not drive while listening to the demo itself or operate heavy machinery.) Enjoy - and hope you feel good after!
Sometimes we get so mired in stress, anxiety or wrapped up in our problems, it's hard to remember how to relax. So today I speak to one of the UK's top psychologists all about stress and balance.
Anna Williamson used to be a pop band, then was one of the UK's most popular children's TV presenters. It's quite a journey from that to respected psychologist (yes, I just used the J word). She's now the resident psychologist for Big Brother and ITV's This Morning, two of the biggest shows on UK television.
Join us as we discuss 'funny mind stuff'. She's had her own problems with anxiety and stress, and she's now all about balance.
Anna and I met to record at a venue in Central London - possibly the noisiest hotel in the city. Somehow it doesn't sound too loud on the interview though, thanks partly to some very friendly people we met who talked sotto voce while we recorded.
This was a fun one to record.
I'm on the road in Seattle, Tokyo, and Bali.
And this podcast is part travel blog and pass road testing a new device called the human charger which gives you energy and helps with jetlag - the Human Charger.
Next time on Zestology:
Sinitta has 14 international hit singles. Yep, I was singing along to her music in the 80s. She is a mentor on The X Factor and she now makes her own fitness videos. But one of the best moments in our chat - I thought - was when she told the long and painful story of how she realised she "wasn't famous any more", and how she dealt with some serious ups and downs.
