JAYNE HARDY The Self-Care Project
Everything you need to know about self-care; what it is, why it’s important, why it’s such a struggle and how to integrate it into day-to-day life.
Self-care is a tool, accessible to us all, which helps us to take responsibility for our own happiness – our physical, emotional, psychological and social needs.
The Self-Care Project is a no-nonsense, practical journey that helps you to explore what self-care means for you, identify what your obstacles might be and provide advice on making time for self-care in a practical, achievable and realistic way.

ANJALI KUMAR Stalking God
When a lawyer at Google starts asking questions that her search engine can’t answer, she embarks on a series of spiritual misadventures to discover the meaning of life.
Anjali Kumar, a lawyer for Google, was not religious until her daughter was born and she felt compelled to find God – or at least some form of enlightenment – that she could some day impart to her daughter.
Knowing that she could not simply Google ‘What is the meaning of life?’, Anjali set out on a spiritual pilgrimage where nothing was off limits. She headed to Peru to learn from shamans, practiced transcendental meditation, convened with angels and worked with a medium – all while searching for answers to life’s most universal questions: Why are we here? What happens when we die? Is there a God?
anjali Kumar was the Founding General Counsel and Head of Social Innovation at Warby Parker, a lifestyle brand for socially conscious businesses. Previously, she was Senior Counsel at Google, advising on areas ranging from Google X to YouTube. Kumar has been profiled in The New York Times and Forbes, and is an advisor to tech companies and nonprofits, including the Malala Fund and Organize.org.
