Pressing Pause

Episode #101

The (potentially harmful) message of self-development books

Gabrielle Treanor


The podcast has had a refresh! And I’ve kept what you love about it – bitesize episodes packed with insight and inspiration, tools and top tips on how you can bring more calm and joy into your day right now. For this episode we’re looking at the message that you have to hit rock bottom before you can justify taking care of your own needs and wants. 

In this episode I share:

  • The external conditioning we’re given that convinces us to struggle on
  • The dangerous path that takes us down
  • Why now is actually the ideal time to take action


  • This is your last chance to join The Calm Mind Club! The doors are open to new members until 30 June and they won’t reopen again before the Club closes at the end of 2022. So to get six months access to the incredible wealth of resources and support click here to find out more and join
