#86 Briony Benjamin: Life Is Tough, But So Are You – Your Dream Life Podcast

In this week’s episode, Kristina speaks to the inspiring Briony Benjamin.

“A viral video producer, Briony Benjamin was a few months into a new job when she started feeling crappy… All. The. Time. Doctors told her she was just stressed and should rest more and learn to meditate. But it turns out she had cancer all through her body. Turning the camera on herself, Briony started documenting her journey in the short video ‘You Only Get One Life’. Its raw portrayal of her experience went viral, touching millions.”

Now, she has an upcoming book, titled, ‘Life Is Tough, But So Are You’ and she took some time out to chat to Kristina Karlsson for this week’s episode. It couldn’t have come at a better time, as so many of us face localised lockdowns and challenges associated with the global pandemic. Regardless of the global pandemic, we all face challenges in life and can benefit from advice and tools to help get through them. We hope this inspiring episode provides you with some of those.
