The Being & The Doing EPISODE 2:
A new kind of well-being checklist
Everybody has a checklist of things they “should do” if they want greater well-being. For many of us that long to-do list just leaves us feeling stressed out and guilty, especially when we don’t tick all the boxes. In this episode Laurel shares a fresh way of thinking about well-being that has a completely different kind of checklist.
