In this incredible episode, I'm joined by Sonja Montague MacKay. After embarking on a journey to recover from chronic fatigue syndrome, she discovered that healing begins with breathing.

Have you ever wanted to be more spiritual? If you’re a practical, goals-oriented person like me, maybe you feel disconnected from that part of yourself. Or perhaps you’re curious to tune in to your intuition, and see what it has to say – to guide you, to help you feel more confident or in control of your mind and your life.

This year, I started a spiritual practice. In today's episode, I share how I began opening up to my spiritual side – and the daily rituals that allow me to continue evolving.

Maybe it’s the anxiety of battling busy shops – or finding the perfect gift for the people you love. Perhaps your family is feuding – or they’re all coming to stay and you’re not sure how you’ll cope.
