Helen Russell came into Google to share her year of self-improvement, overhauling every area of her life, learn how to embrace change, and become a lean, mean decision-making machine. Recorded in London, January 2017
** ABOUT THE BOOK **
Having spent the last few years in Denmark uncovering the secrets of the happiest country in the world, Helen Russell knows it’s time to move back to the UK. She thinks. Maybe. Or maybe that’s a terrible idea?
Like many of us, she suffers from chronic indecision and a fear of change. So she decides to give herself a year for an experiment: to overhaul every area of her life, learn how to embrace change, and become a lean, mean decision-making machine. From how to cope with changing work lives and evolving relationships, to how we feel about our bodies, money and well-being, Helen investigates the benefits of new beginnings, the secrets of decisive people and what makes changes last – and uncovers the practical life lessons we can all use thrive when change is afoot – and inject some freshness and magic if it’s not.
