The Joe Wicks Podcast
2. Fearne Cotton: Nothing blooms all year round
Monday, 20 July
Joe Wicks wants to know: What’s the one thing that makes life better?
Joe loves finding ways to boost his mental and physical health, so he’s asking some of his inspiring mates about their secret to physical and mental happiness. Whether it’s a high-intensity cycle, a freezing cold shower or a cheeky power nap, every guest will share the one thing that works for them.
Fearne Cotton has been a regular on radio and TV since she was 15. Over the past decade she’s become one of the most prominent voices on wellness, and mental wellbeing with her ‘Happy Place’ podcast, books and festival. She loves to keep fit, but as Joe finds out, Fearne always comes back to music to lift her spirits. Joe hears how the music of the 1970s in particular, made before the onset of the internet and social media, inspires Fearne to feel present.
Fearne describes coming through depression and disordered eating, and shares techniques like meditation and deep breathing which help her with anxiety. She and Joe talk family life and their shared enthusiasm for an ice cold shower.
This is sunshine in a podcast. Joe Wicks is here for you, and he won’t stop until you’re fit and happy.
