A lot of the time we can find ourselves on this hamster wheel of trying to optimise every waking hour of our days, hyper-focused on time and paranoid about how the decisions we make today will influence our future selves. But ultimately the hamster wheel just keeps on spinning when we don’t take a moment to slow down, reflect and enjoy the moment.

Nasir Kharma is a medical student King’s College London, best known for his YouTube Channel, Kharma Medic, where he talks about studying, productivity and what it’s like being a med student. In the conversation we chat about how he started his channel and began to play the YouTube game, how his time in therapy has shifted his thinking around time management and how we’ve been thinking about what it means to live a meaningful life recently.
