The Wellbeing Journey

Feeling drained or overwhelmed by life?


The Wellbeing Journey is a new series exploring holistic wellness of body, mind and spirit. This course is for you if you are feeling a bit overwhelmed and drained by life. If you are getting by on an empty tank all the time, maybe it's time for a refill?

This course is delivered from a Christian perpsective based around seven key areas of wellbeing – the wellbeing mindset, physical, emotional, spiritual, relational, financial and vocational – to help you discover how to run on a full tank in life.

The videos are presented by Simon Thomas (Sky Sports/Blue Peter) and Joanna Adeyinka-Burford (BBC, Channel 5, Nickelodeon), with contributions from leading experts in different fields.

The Wellbeing Mindset

The human mind is wonderful and complex; the way that we think can be as unique as we are. But there are some guiding principles that we are going to look at that will help to ensure that the way we think (our mindset) is contributing to our overall wellbeing.

Physical wellbeing

As integrated beings, how we care for our physical wellbeing impacts upon other areas of health such as diet, sleep and exercise. We explore this with help of experts in these fields.

Emotional wellbeing

In this session we look at the subject of emotional health with input from psychologist Dr Roger Bretherton, Principal Lecturer for Enterprise in the School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln; Will van der Hart, a director of the Mind and Soul Foundation; and Dr Rosemary Gomes, a clinical psychologist in both an NHS role and independent practice.

Spiritual wellbeing

This session looks at spiritual wellbeing from a Christian perspective and the practices associated with this such as prayer, meditation, slowing down and solitude. Featuring Pete Greig, author and founder of 24-7 Prayer and Pastor Agu Irukwu, UK leader of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) – the world’s fastest growing Christian denomination.

Relational Wellbeing

We were designed for relationship. The poet John Donne gave expression to this truth when he wrote ‘No man is an island’. In this session we will explore the importance of relationships to our wellbeing.

Financial Wellbeing

Financial wellbeing has been described as ‘a sense of security and feeling as though you have enough money to meet your needs’. Today we are going to look at some guiding principles  that help us to experience a sense of security concerning our finances.

Vocational Wellbeing

We were designed as purposeful human beings. In this session we have input from Dr Dave Smith, author of ‘God’s Plan For Your Wellbeing’ and originator of this series, and Jill Garrett, executive director of Tentpeg Consulting.
