Australian self-help author Shannah Kennedy puts own advice to the test

“What people forget is when they feel stuck, or unmotivated, or flat, or angry, or frustrated, they don’t realise that we’re actually grieving,” she told Deborah Knight.
“We’re grieving that we can’t see our loved ones, we can’t go to the hospital to visit our friends, we can’t have a coffee or people over for dinner.”
