The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we work. Many of us have transitioned from an office environment to remote working and the consequences for work-life balance and self-esteem can be significant for some. As we live in a hypercompetitive society, it is important to pay attention to our mental wellbeing including our self-esteem.
Recently, Health Issues India editor Kerean Watts interviewed author and certified life coach Shobha Nihalani whose new book is Reboot, Reflect, Revive: Self-Esteem in a Selfie World. The interview is available here.
In our conversation, we discuss the importance of self-esteem, the future of work, and other issues. The book “adopts a narrative and conversational style…filled with insights into human motivation and behaviour. It is billed as “a call-to-action to end the vicious cycle of being shackled by low self-esteem in the professional space.”

About Reboot, Reflect, Revive: Self-Esteem in a Selfie World
Reboot, Reflect, Revive demonstrates compellingly why self-esteem is basic to psychological health, professional achievement, personal happiness and positive relationships. It delves in the world of doubts and finds solutions for those self-attacking thoughts which refrain you from forming a positive self-image. It tells you why you should not undermine your built-in skills.
Professionals with low self-esteem are stuck in the present and tend to forget their past achievements. Whereas people with high self-esteem will glide through a difficult situation with ease. Through personal stories, exclusive interviews with psychology experts and cutting-edge research, this book shares how our hypercompetitive society affects us and how we make the choice to rise above it and be aligned with our own selves.
Now more than ever, it’s time to reboot, reflect and revive our self-esteem to start living a life to our fullest potential.
‘Shobha Nihalani’s book, Reboot, Reflect, Revive, takes an in-depth look at what constitutes our self-esteem or lack thereof but in an interesting, easy-to-read style. Interspersed with real-life examples, she brings out the subtle nuances that can help us all reboot! A must-read!’
