At the start of 2014 I travelled to the Philippines for a long-awaited holiday. We travelled to a fancy retreat in the jungle, and that was where my problems started. I got ill in the middle of nowhere. Booking an emergency flight home from Manila was only the start of my problems. I developed serious numb patches on my face, and extreme fatigue. I ended up having three months off work. The doctors said it might be glandular fever, but they didn't really know. It was a scary time, and since then I have really focused on my health and energy as I slowly fought back to full health.
Now I'm feeling much better, but the more I spoke to people, the more I realised that so many of us are feeling stressed, lacking in energy or motivation, and for whatever reason would love a little more spring in our step.
It's a subject that's close to my heart, and ties in with much of the stuff I've been blogging about over the last few years, so today I launch my new podcast - Zestology.
If you want more energy, vitality and purpose in your life, then Zestology is for you. I don't claim to know all the answers, but each week I'll be speaking to an incredible list of experts who have some practical ideas to start feeling more energy straight away. Plus as you'll hear, we have a lot of fun along the way.
To launch the show I have a fantastic guest - Dr. Pedram Shojai. Pedram is a world renowned author, filmmaker, and medical doctor who's made two awesome films, Origins and Vitality (available on netflix). They're both about living life with more energy and purpose, so he really is the perfect guest to kick it off.
