Your favourite self-help junkies Lianne Kay (The Self Help Hipster) and Andrew Chin talk about their 30-day challenges, review the book "What a time to be alone: the Slumflower’s guide on why you’re already enough!" by Chidera Eggerue and talk about their pop culture pleasures and obsessions. Another hour+ of jolly good fun and insights.
POMODORO-ING MY FACE OFF: Lianne used the Pomodoro technique religiously, and it still works like a charm.
HOLIDAY PICTURES: Andrew’s holiday got postponed so he didn’t do this one.
We have an interesting discussion on the concept of 30-day challenges and actual long term habit change. More on that next episode.
