If you stopped and asked yourself whether you were living life according to your own core values or were instead trying to live up to someone else’s expectations, would you feel good about your answer?
Far too often, we get caught up in all the “shoulds” of life—all the obligations and made-up stories of what qualifies as “success”—only to wake up one day and realize we really aren’t happy. Creating the life we want starts with taking the time to go inside, identify our deepest values, and create an intentional path forward.
Today, I’m excited to share an empowering and loving conversation between Dhru and our good friend Dr. Rangan Chatterjee. They take a deep dive into how we can live in line with what matters most to us, breaking down limiting narratives, finding true self-love, and so much more.
Dr. Chatterjee is regarded as one of the most influential doctors in the UK. A practicing GP for the last two decades, Dr. Chatterjee wants to inspire people to transform their health through making small, sustainable changes to their lifestyles.
Host of the number-one Apple podcast Feel Better, Live More and presenter of BBC 1’s Doctor in the House.
