While we cannot attend festival, shows and events as we are used to, it doesn’t mean your health journey has to be put on hold, especially now that a virtual wellbeing festival has been announced.
The Live Life Well Weekender will take place from May 8-10, bringing together a whole host of experts, health professionals and industry leaders from across the wellbeing industry. Included in the list is Dr Sarah Jarvis, Dr Radha Modgil, Dr Aaron Balick, mental health campaigner, Natasha Devon, and the Pilates PT, Hollie Grant.
The events will explore all areas of wellbeing to spark discussions and provide the practical tools that people need to help protect their own, and their families’ wellbeing now, and as we come out of lockdown.
Informative talks will be hosted by BBC Radio 2’s Dr Jarvis, and Baroness Greenfield on ‘How COVID-19 has impacted our health and wellbeing’ and what we should be aware of moving forwards, as well as ‘How we can take control of our own wellbeing’ with Dr Radha and James Sanderson, from the National Academy for Social Prescribing.
Discussions on how to manage anxiety, low mood, depression and day-to-day worry and fear, as well as lessons in food and nutrition during lockdown, will also be covered, as will children’s wellbeing and tips on turning negatives into positives.
You can also keep up your fitness with a dynamic mat Pilates session from Holly, while F45 will put you through your paces for a Hiit class.
The Live Life Well Weekender is a not-for-profit event and will be accessible to all, with free tickets for all frontline and key workers, free access for students, as well as free tickets for those in need, who are on low incomes or unemployed as a result of the pandemic. A fee of £10 per household provides visitors with access to the whole three days of content, of which all profits received will go charity to support the NHS Charities National Covid-19 Appeal.
