Episode 7: How to be happy, notes from a cancer survivor

In this week’s episode we talk about the life-altering power of changing your attitude to life, this week’s guest did just that.

I met Katie Boylan in Cara Sothern’s yoga class in 2016, one minute she was there, the next she wasn’t. We soon found out that 36-year-old Katie had been diagnosed with a 15cm cancer tumour in her bowel.

Two years, and three clear scans later, Katie is here to tell us, how cancer dramatically shifted her attitude to life, from one of complaining about the commute and sweating all of the small stuff to one of sincere gratitude, she explains how pre-cancer Katie went from existing to now, really living, how getting down to 7st showed her that weight loss wasn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and she talks about the power of music, friendship and visualisation to get you through just about anything.
