Dangerous Minds with Ed Stafford

If your podcast library could do with a refresh, this series with adventurer and Guinness World Record holder Ed Stafford is well worth a download. In 2010, Ed became the first person to walk the entire length of the Amazon river, a feat that took 860 days. He has since set himself some similarly serious challenges, like being left for dead in various extreme environments. In the podcast, Ed explores the concept of adventure travel and pushing yourself to mental and physical limits with guests including Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Jason Fox and Dwayne Fields.

Drowsy Sleep Co

Started by two brothers with first-hand experience of insomnia, Drowsy Sleep Co offers some of the best sleep sprays we’ve tried. The duo wanted to develop a natural alternative to sleeping meds and the result is a pair of blends: Sleep Zen, the ultimate antidote to stressful days; and Sleep SOS, formulated to target the key areas of problem sleep. Both sprays have been designed to trigger smell receptors on your brain, helping you feel less stressed and sleepier.

The Nue Co Forest Lungs

This new-gen scent fuses olfactory chemistry with clever technology to replicate molecular compounds normally produced in forests and credited for positive health benefits including stress and anxiety reduction. Not convinced? In trials, 96% of people felt less stressed within 30 minutes of spritzing the fragrance, and 87% felt their everyday stress levels were lower after wearing the scent for a month. Plus, Forest Lungs smells great, with woody and smoky notes alongside clean resin and citrus.
