Someone asked me this morning, ‘Have you got five minutes?’ I thought ‘no’ and said ‘yes.’ I get caught in the pattern and wonder where the time goes and how to break out of the cycle. The Wellbeing Book offers us the chance to take five, draw breath and find our way back to what makes us tick.

The Wellbeing Book cuts to the chase and delivers huge value. A small book yet a powerhouse of ideas, advice and action. Wellbeing is not a ‘nice-to-have’, it’s a total ‘must-have’ and Sharman helps you find exactly how to improve yours.
