Why we need to be more deviant!

This week's guest on Wellness Unwrapped is Pilar Gerasimo - someone who I've looked up to as one of my guiding lights, ever since I came across her work a few years back. I love her gentle, wise, self-deprecating, fun approach to empowering people to take their health back.

Pilar and I have a very honest chat about how we need to embrace deviance if we want to live a vibrant life. Pilar is refreshingly real when it comes to how hard it is to break out of feeling rubbish in today's world. I think you'll love her practical, too-easy-to-fail guidance on how to get yourself on the road to feeling calmer, healthier and happier. I really hope that listening to this episode inspires you to become a healthy deviant too.

Pilar is an award-winning health journalist, pioneering social explorer, and author of the brilliant book The Healthy Deviant: A Rule-Breaker’s Guide to Being Healthy in an Unhealthy World.

Best known for her work as founding editor of Experience Life magazine, which today reaches more than three million people with each issue, Pilar has also served as top health editor for The Huffington Post. Today, Pilar co-hosts a top-rated weekly podcast called The Living Experiment.
