The culture of wellness is defined by the choices we make. Awareness and knowledge open paths on choices. The key, one learns, isn’t just knowing what you want, it’s accepting what you have time for and what you don’t. There’s a distinction between good health, mental wellbeing, and the absence of dis-ease. Unless we prioritize our wellbeing and remain intentional about the kind of time, we dedicate to ourselves, and spend with others, life’s sweet spot we crave might sour quicker than it should.

Join Women Supporting Women’s Prince’s Trust initiative, in partnership with Brilliant Breakfast, and The Toucan Project, on two virtual sessions on filled with knowledge on how to upgrade our overall well-being through this collective, FREE, and widely accessible Mind-Body-Soul event in honour of the Day of the Girl 2021.
