Today I’m having a wonderful conversation with one of my good friends Dr Rangan Chatterjee. Many of you will know him through his best selling books, podcasts and TV shows and I’ve had the pleasure of watching him succeed through the arc of both his career and his personal life which talk about quite a bit today.

You can tell when Rangan and I get together it’s hard to stop us talking. In fact we’d only just wrapped up a 2.5 hour chat on his podcast before we recorded this one, which goes for a similar amount of time, but I truly think you’ll find some nuggets of gold in this conversation between us, and Rangan opens up even more today than I’ve heard him do on other podcasts.

‘Happy Mind, Happy Life’ is a masterfully written book, deceptively simple in its writing and full of tips, insights and practices that I personally use to maintain a happy state of mind.

Today we talk about:

  • A re-introduction into Rangan and how he moved into a different way of practicing medicine
  • How we find and maintain happiness
  • Daily practices that can help your state of mind
  • Morning routines
  • How friction in relationships is necessary for growth
  • Addictions and how we fill voids with food
  • The process of writing books
