Ep. 152 -Stress, Psychedelics And The Five Pillars Of Health w/ Neil Shah

Suicide is the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. That’s a seriously worrying statistic. Mental health in all ages, genders, races and cultures is one of the least spoken about, most taboo subject. The idea of being vulnerable and accepting the need for help is terribly hard for many of us. 

On this episode, I speak to Neil Shah, founder of the International Wellbeing Insights and Chief De-Stressing Office of the Stress Management Society. He’s a leading international expert on stress management and wellbeing, and author of a few bestselling books on the topic. And on the podcast, we talk about the five core pillars of health, from mental, physical, social, emotional and spiritual, and why all five are critical. 

We discuss the taboo around psychedelics, current events, and what life is set to be like in the coming years. This is a candid, no holds barred conversation with Neil that I’m excited to share with you.
