Have you ever considered COOKING to be part of your self care?

I hadn’t but talking to Jayne for this episode has revolutionised my life! No longer seeing cooking as a chore and boring, I’m suddenly loving becoming more whole food vegan v the junk food vegan of the past several years.

Who knew cooking – this BASIC basic self care – could be so satisfying?

How about you? How might you find a way to reframe one of the things you HAVE to do so it becomes more fulfilling and potentially even fun?

'We all feel more comfortable in our own skin,' says Dr Sabina Brennan. 'We don't sweat the small stuff.'

I know I feel better with each passing year as I get a better sense of what works for me and what doesn't (including navigating joints that didn't used to ache and eyes that didn't used to need reading glasses) but I've adored Dr Sabina Brennan's approach to aging since I met her the year I moved to Ireland when she was promoting her then new book 100 Days to a Younger Brain.

How about...
