Popular TV and radio personality Wallace Chapman is on a mission. A mission to chill us all out.
He's thought a lot about the syndrome of modern life and thinks he has a few answers. Ranging over such subjects as careers, technology, health and well-being, food, sex and relationships, and employing a captivating mix of pop psychology, science, philosophy and humour, Chapman distils the many mixed messages we receive on a daily basis into a self-help book that's not actually a self-help book.
For fans of Daniel Kahneman's bestselling Thinking, Fast and Slow, and anyone else feeling the ravages of time-poorness, Don't Just Do Something, Sit There is a profound yet populist take on considering life as we live it.
A balanced life won't happen overnight and if it does, seek help. Because slow living takes time.
