This week Cheryl is joined by international bestselling author Nikki Gemmell to discuss her new book On Quiet – a guide to calmly accepting things as they are, and learning to find moments of quiet in today’s busy world. Together they discuss how society’s obsession with being busy is making us miserable, and the need for moments of ‘quiet’ every day to restore and replenish our souls.
