A bit more about Jess’ new book: “This book is the culmination of everything I’ve learnt so far about health, nutrition and wellbeing over the past seven years – both personally and professionally – laid out in 12 steps. It’s a handbook that contains all the answers I wish I had when I was struggling with things like body image, sleep and anxiety, and it’s backed by countless hours of consulting and research. I want people to be able to hold on to this handbook forever, and use it to remind themselves that they’re not alone in whatever health issue they’re dealing with,” says Jess.
