Having endured a somewhat torrid 15 months, mental and physical wellbeing has been placed right at the forefront of people’s thoughts.
As the lockdown took its grip, so did a widespread perception that remote work and social isolation would generate an increase in mental health issues, such as stress and anxiety.
For those with school-aged children, many parents were struggling to cope trying to work from home while making sure schoolwork was being completed.
Add into the mix, feelings of loneliness and isolation, it’s little wonder many people have struggled.
Jason Eaton, general manager at the club and spa at Cadbury House in Congresbury said: “Mental health is increasingly at the forefront of people’s discussions and so it should be. Everyone has struggled in one way or another over the past 15 months, so it’s important we all lend each other a helping hand.
“Here at theclub we like to promote what we call wellbeing and have recently set up a partnership with Emma Young, who specialises in nutrition and lifestyle medicine.
“Emma takes a close look at people’s nutrition and wellbeing and helps put in place a programme that improves their overall health, happiness and general outlook on life. Initial feedback has been amazing and I’m sure Emma will really help people change their lifestyles for the better.”

Emma added: “Health is an interconnected web of many different lifestyle aspects that make up the jigsaw of our wellbeing.
“We need to have all the pieces that fit together to complete the picture and our health and skin are no different. If we don’t pay attention to all areas of our lives, we may well miss a key puzzle piece that will prevent us from achieving the results we are wanting to see and feel.
“Health is more than an absence of disease, it is about having a complete state of physical, social and emotional wellbeing and vitality. In order to achieve this we need to look at all aspects of our lives and bring them in to balance.
“Now that all sounds great but exactly how do we implement a complete and balanced life? The answer is slowly and consistently with what I call the ‘Beacons of Health’ and making small manageable changes that build to form new positive habits. This includes looking at nourishment, movement, sleep, our connections, calmness and cleanse.
“And by making small incremental changes to these areas will help achieve a more balanced lifestyle and better wellbeing.”
