Ep 72: The New Rulebook

Are you ready to break free from outdated norms and embrace a post-pandemic approach that prioritises wellbeing?

Join Meg Durham as she welcomes clinical psychologist Chris Cheers to dive into his revolutionary new book, ‘The New Rule Book: Notes from a Psychologist to Help You Redefine the Way You Live’. Chris and Meg explore how reexamining five key areas of your life – self-care, emotions, work, body, and love – can lead to improved wellbeing.

Listen in as Chris shares his expertise on elevating mental health, encouraging listeners to embrace uncertainty, prioritise self-care, and listen to their bodies. Get ready to take the first step in redefining your life.

In this conversation we discuss

▫️ How to embrace uncertainty

▫️ The importance of listening to our body

▫️ When self-care becomes a direction. 

▫️ And so much more…

You can quote us on that…

“Living a life of authenticity is hard because life is not set up to support your authenticity.”

Chris Cheers

“Little meaningful actions add up to a meaningful day and a meaningful day adds up to a meaningful month, meaningful months me year. And then you get a meaningful life.”

Chris Cheers

“Emotions are our body’s way of making sense of the world.”
