Sneak peek interview from Entertainment Weekly:
What’s the biggest thing you learned in making Heart Talk that you used in the process of writing Where to Begin?
I spent almost all of last year on the road in different towns and cities talking to people about their lives. For every hour that I spent speaking, I spent three hours listening, and my biggest takeaway was that most people are feeling incredibly overwhelmed. The combination of living in the age of the 24-hour news cycle and holding a phone all day that is constantly alerting us to a flood of information and status updates is incredibly stressful and anxiety-provoking.
On any given day, the problems of the world just feel like they are too much for us to handle, so I really wanted to create a book that helped calm our minds while also reminding us that we always have the power to remain hopeful and participate in creating solutions.
Who (or what) is inspiring you the most right now?
My biggest inspiration is always the people I meet as I move through the world. No one inspires me more than the people I meet while traveling on the road, standing in line at a coffee shop, taking the subway, or the amazing people that visit me when I set up my Are You Okay booths in the park.
What is the first thing you did when you finished Where to Begin?
I took a nap! I only had about two months to write this book, so I had to work around the clock on it.
