“Thank you Jill! I very much enjoy you as a presenter. Your energy and sincerity make you easy to listen to. I enjoy the science behind how our brain works and knowing it’s a social organ that needs to move and wants to do things. It’s so easy to just ‘veg’ when I’m feeling overwhelmed! I also love having more tools in my tool belt, useful and easy applications to do when I feel tired or stressed.”
