I’ve covered burnout, anxiety, even sleep, as issues to be able to deal with and overcome on the Real Health podcast, but what about probably the biggest one of all – stress?

It's thought that between 70 and 90% of GP visits are related to stress and one doctor wants to change that and come up with better ways for us to combat it. 

Dr Rangan Chatterjee is well known in the UK for being the resident doctor on BBC One’s Breakfast and has his own chart-topping podcast, Feel Better, Live More, and he joined me to discuss his new book, The Stress Solution, 4 steps to reset your body, mind, relationships and purpose.

It's a fascinating interview with some great tips and advice from Dr. Chatterjee including:

- How to design your morning routine effectively

- How to keep a touch diary

- How to mute your digital world

- How to eat the alphabet

“The four steps – body, mind, relationships and purpose - these are the stress superhighways of modern living,” Dr. Chatterjee tells me.  “And purpose is the most important of all.”
