Do you shudder when you hear the phrase: "New Year, new you"? If this cringe moment resonates with you, then it sounds like you share the same view as much-loved comedian Ruby Wax.
With the aim to guide us through the chaos of the 21st century, Ruby has written a book ‘How To Be Human’ - a user’s guide for living and getting happy. But thankfully, to the relief of many, it doesn't involve a long, albeit, short lived list of New Year's resolutions.
Ruby confesses: "We give ourselves enough of a hard time in life. To set up New Year's resolutions only ends in disappointment."
Sharing her thoughts on the pressures of social media and the battle of getting rid of the inner critic, she added: "We have a new phenomena which is being frazzled, which is stress about stress. What's killing us is our own thinking."
