What A Psychologist Really Thinks About Self Care

We often hear that we need to prioritise ourselves and put our needs first if we want to achieve mental wellness. But is that really the answer?

Today, we're speaking with psychologist Chris Cheers about the often-forgotten role that caring for others plays when it comes to our overall happiness and fulfilment.

Chris is here to explore the benefits of shifting our focus from ourselves to others and the baby steps we can take each day to actually feel better.
