Dr Mark Seaman is a GP, fitness enthusiast, and mental health and wellbeing advocate. He is admittedly more of a fiction reader, as it provides a means of escapism that helps quiet the mind.
"I love reading and try and make sure I read a book that is not related to the day job every day. "
We asked for some books he has enjoyed with a wellbeing focus, and these are three he recommends.
Fully Human by Steve Biddulph
"This is a great and easy reading book and centres around personal growth. I was lucky enough to interview the author on a podcast and I really enjoyed his work."
Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker
Mark is the second doctor to recommend Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker. He says it's "partly because I very much abused my sleep pattern for a long time and neglected its importance for far too long. It's something we do every day and most of us could do it better and be better for it."
Before & Laughter by Jimmy Carr
"Lastly a recent read (and a bit different), ''Before & Laughter'' by Jimmy Carr, it's an autobiography that imparts a few life lessons along the way - plenty to think about in it if you like his brand of humour."
