  • Ep. 1: Why Wellness?

    Jan 25 2019

    Comedian Alice Fraser wants to find out what wellness really means and why it’s so big right now. What is it about the modern world that makes the concept of wellness so appealing?

    According to Sarah Greenidge, who started a company to uphold the credibility of the wellness industry, we have all become more aware of the imbalance in our work-life balance: we’re stressed, we’re tired, so we look to wellness to feel better. Something that Brigid Schulte, the writer of the book Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has the Time, agrees with. But Greenidge point out that the wellness industry is capitalising on how much we yearn to live a better life. This doesn’t sit well with Alice. She will start her journey to understand wellness beyond the industry in the next episode by looking at the beginnings of the wellness movement in the 70s.
