We like telling our friends the funny thing that happened at work, but we’re also really good at making up stories about things that happen in life and applying them to our identity and worldview. We can start believing these stories all too easily. But, they’re actually just stories! And we have a choice about what we believe and how we create our reality. I’m so excited to share this conversation I recently had with my good friend Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, all about cultivating greater health and happiness by breaking down the barriers we’ve put up in our own minds. Dr. Rangan Chatterjee is regarded as one of the most influential doctors in the UK.
