Publisher's Summary

We’ve all heard the word wellness, but what does it actually mean? Why is the concept of wellness so popular right now? And why is the wellness industry booming? In this series the comedian Alice Fraser goes on a quest to find out.

On the way she meets the three guys known as the so-called fathers of wellness, she takes part in a yoga class with a social media influencer and she chats to two scientists carrying out a landmark study on the meaning and measurement of wellbeing. The series also offers practical tips on how to navigate the world of wellness. How can you tell wellness fact from fiction? Which kinds of influencers should you follow? What is the science behind wellness? Can Alice find a type of wellness that works for her?

Well being is more than doing pushups

Interesting look into well being as a whole - body, soul , environment , social etc without pushing products down your throat.

Boring as

This was all about the wellness industry not how to get well. I was most disappointed.

Interesting series

Ive listened to several of these podcast series since they came out, and I found something interesting in each of them. This one is no different. I love the references to various studies and how to quickly get a sense of their reliability. I also like the breadth of voices. The fact that Alice Fraser tells us that she used to be a lawyer some 50 times in this podcast quickly becomes super, super, SUPER annoying. (We know. You told us. Over and over again.)

Excellent podcast

Raises some intetesting facts and studies, in addirion to exploring personal thoughts and views on the subject of wellness. The final Chapter especially raises expert driven concerns which relate especially strongly to everyone given cirumstances.

Thoroughly enjoyed this podcast as it enlighted me on the much debated topic of Wellness. Alice Fraser was on point as usually. So 5 stars for me.
