We will explore the pillars of Holistic Health:
Emotional health is about how we think and feel. It is about our sense of wellbeing, our ability to cope with life events and how we acknowledge our own emotions as well as those of others. It doesn’t mean being happy all of the time.

Even when I became underweight, I still saw that fat little girl in the mirror.
During my teaching career, I was determined to break free from the chronic dieting…
