Bella Mackie is an author, journalist, and runner.
This week Jenni is joined by journalist and bestselling author, Bella Mackie, who reveals how running can help overcome anxiety, conquer heartbreak and be a contributing factor to true happiness. Topics for discussion include exploring a city, running with dogs and the question on everyone's lips: to smile or not to smile at other runners?! As Bella says; "Running gives you the opportunity to run away from your life, but also gives you the ability to come back" This emotive and inspiring episode will make you want to pop your trainers on and get out the door, no matter your mood.
Journalist, author and runner Bella Mackie joins Katie to discuss how running saved her life. She openly speaks about her anxiety, intrusive thoughts, agoraphobia and how she’s turned her life around. Katie then speaks with Dr Mark Winwood, Director of Psychological Services at AXA PPP healthcare, who shares the ways people struggling with anxiety can help themselves.   See for privacy and opt-out information.
We’ve got another first this week... our first couple on Table Manners & a total power duo - Greg James & Bella Mackie. With Prosecco at midday, we chat wedding food, stockpiling wine, compare hours of sleep and now we understand what a 'tailender' is. And I ruin pudding. Again. Enjoy x  See for privacy and opt-out information.
Bella Mackie joins us this week to talk about her new book, the Sunday Times bestseller Jog On, which tells the story of how running helped her address mental health issues during the most challenging time of her life. As well as being thoughtful and empathetic, Bella is also irreverent and self-deprecating. Her advice includes tips on being a supportive friend, and finding hope during bleak times - plus the invaluable: 'Always be jazzy.'
