#175 Bella Mackie: Why You Should Jog On

​Bella is a freelance journalist from London. She has written for The Guardian, VICE and Vogue among other publications. In 2017, she wrote a brilliant piece on being happy being single at the age of 30 for Vogue. This year, she wrote the hit bestseller "Jog On: How Running Saved My Life" and she married BBC breakfast host Greg James.

In Jog On, Bella explains with hilarious and unfiltered honesty how she used running to battle crippling anxiety and depression, without having to sacrifice her main loves: booze, cigarettes and ice cream. With the help of a supporting cast of doctors, psychologists, sportspeople and friends, she shares a wealth of inspirational stories, research and tips that show how exercise often can be the best medicine. This book will encourage you to say ‘jog on’ to your problems and get your life back on track – no matter how small those first steps may be. We discuss running, mental wellbeing and how to help a friend who is struggling.
