Wellbeing has become a popular buzzword. It's a broad concept that covers our physical, mental, emotional, and social health.  

This course explores the research-backed strategies that have been proven to maintain and improve wellbeing. We review the theory of wellbeing and provide practical strategies to enhance personal wellbeing.

We examine the relationship between nutrition and wellbeing, and the important role that wholefoods rich in micronutrients play in maintaining and improving our overall physical and mental wellbeing.
