This episode we share a hopeful discussion about the simple things you can do everyday to boost your serotonin, get better at handling stress and live a happier, healthier life. Prof Grant Schofield talks to Dave Wood, an intensive care paramedic and the founder of Woody’s Movement Workshop where he takes a holistic approach to athletic performance.

Dave talks about his experience as an intensive paramedic, his recent move to start Woody’s Movement Workshop, and the importance of training the breathing and nervous systems for optimal health and performance.

Prof Grant and Dave explore lifestyle medicine tools like breath, connecting with the earth, prioritising sleep, eating good food, moving your body, getting cold, and exposing yourself to natural light, and the profound positive effects on mental health.


“We’ve got to totally change our perception of stress. Stress is good, we need stress” – Dave Wood
