How do we stay strong and resilient in a world where the obsession with image and lifestyle has reached fever pitch?

Never have young women been under so much pressure. We're bombarded with unrealistic images of perfection - and it's taking a major toll on our physical and emotional wellbeing. We're supposed to be working out, eating clean, deliriously happy and successful, with the perfect relationship, career and body. No wonder so many of us are experiencing a wide range of mental health problems.

Emma Woolf offers positive strategies and tools for coping with modern life, eating well and feeling great, dealing with setbacks and heartbreak and hanging on to your self-esteem and mojo at all costs. She covers topics including social media, clean eating, healthy sleep, nutrition and exercise, tackling depression, anxiety and eating disorders.

Whatever challenges you might be facing, you'll find Wellbeing inspiring, practical and relatable.
