Is it possible to feel better in just five minutes?

Does this sound familiar: I want to be healthy, but I just don’t have time. You wouldn’t be too busy to brush your teeth. So, why is your mental and physical health any different? There’s no reason to make healthy habits complicated when all you need is five minutes.

I’m excited to have Dr. Rangan Chatterjee on the show today to dive deep into this topic.

When it comes to changing habits, it’s the smallest steps that make the biggest difference. But most people set big goals only to lose motivation quickly. Listen in as Dr. Chatterjee breaks down how to make significant impact in your mental, physical, and brain health in just five minutes a day.
