This course takes a holistic view of individual wellbeing; this starts with defining what the term means to you and then explores how to maximise the physical, emotional and mental domains of wellbeing. You will consider how to better understand your emotions and manage any negative or disruptive feelings and will start to build your mental agility by examining a difficult situation from a range of alternative perspectives.
