CLARKE Carlisle joined talkSPORT's Jim White to discuss his battle with mental health. Clarke was keen to open up about his struggles with depression in support of The Movember Foundation who work hard to help stop men dying too young from suicide. Speaking candidly about a depressive episode he experienced in 2017 Clarke said "I was walking around Liverpool thinking that I deserved to be dead, thinking that I didn't deserve to be here."

According to a poll conducted by YouGov and commissioned by the fitness site DailyBurn, Democrats are 50 percent more likely than Republicans to say they’re “eating their feelings” as a result of the current political climate. They’re also drinking more (a 2-to-1 ratio over their GOP counterparts). The ostensibly good news is that these stressed out Democrats are also working out more, by as much as 40 percent; but even exercise can be overdone. “I’m seeing some people so stressed at the moment they're doing two, even three soul cycle classes at day,” Dr. Navya Mysore, a primary care doctor, tells NBC News BETTER. “Exercise is good for you, but too much is not.
