Architecture and wellness
At i-wellbeing we like to look at wellbeing holistically, and so of course that includes the space we find ourselves in at home and at work.  I came across Design Work Studios via an online Zoom call with the Global Wellness Summit. We've created lots of content based on the GWS trends and you can find more articles by going to i-wellbeing.com. This trend is of real interest, it's number three on the GWS list and it is: Spiritual and Numinous Moments in Architecture -The move from ostentatious fads to architecture that touches our souls.

Self-development
Pete and I discuss more than architecture. He explains how his company aim to deliver happiness and have recently become the first company in the UK to register a Happiness Officer, as one of their key team members.
