Katina Bajaj found herself in the depths of burnout, when she picked up a journal and started writing.

It led to a career change, to training in clinical psychology, and now establishing her platform `Daydreamers.' Katina Bajaj has spent the past two and a half years researching our creative health, a side of the wellbeing spectrum she believes is often overlooked.
