Poorna Bell is award-winning journalist of 15 years and a digital expert having worked as UK Exec Editor and Global Lifestyle Head for Huffington Post. She currently writes for Grazia, The iPaper, The Guardian, Red magazine, and Stylist. She was recently named one of Balance magazine’s top 100 wellness personalities, a Stylist magazine Rising Star, a judge for the Mind Media Awards and British Book Awards, plus so much more.
Her debut non-fiction book Chase The Rainbow (Simon & Schuster) came out last year; a moving memoir about how Poorna's life was affected —but not defined—by the suicide of her husband Rob. Ariana Huffington said about the book: ‘Chase the Rainbow is a game-changing book. Poorna Bell’s moving account of the pressures on modern men could be a life-saver." Poorna's second book In Search Of Silence is out now, all about her deeply personal journey which asks us all to define what 'happiness' truly means to each of us. In this episode we discuss the inspiration behind this second memoir, her wariness of self-help books, and what she's learned along the way.
