Join us for a morning of Health and Positivity in the most depressing week of the year!

About this event

The third week in January is thought to be the most depressing of the year. Christmas seems a distant memory, we may have debts from festive overspending, short cold days and failed new year’s resolutions can lead to low motivational levels.

CS Local Scotland wellbeing network have partnered with -

  • Charity for Civil Servants and Laughter for health Jo Bluett who will introduces the concept and some basic principles of therapeutic laughter, along with positive mindset and psychology tools, potentially as a foundation to Laughter For Health workshops
  • Manda stretch Taster in Laughter Yoga….Laugh, Breathe, Relax During this short session you will take away some suggestions and tips on how to cope with difficult times. Laughing for no reason is the key to Laughter Yoga . We shall do some laughter exercises, some breathing techniques, and complete with a short relaxation. We can remain seated the whole time and this is suitable for all ages .Everyone can do it!

Following our Laughter Yoga session we will relax with some therapeutic gardening

  • Trellis: improving lives through gardening- Fiona Thackery - Therapeutic Gardening (also known as 'Social and Therapeutic Gardening') is the use of garden space and/or activities to help people enhance their health and well being. Gardening can be an enjoyable medium through which to promote physical, social and emotional health. Gardening can also offer education and training opportunities, not only in horticulture skills but life skills, literacy and numeracy. In turn these can lead to improvements in confidence, pride, quality of life and self-esteem.

Hopefully this morning of activities will help banish the depression of the late stages of winter and you learn the wider benefits to your health that happiness brings.

We will use MS Teams and send you the link to join the day before.

Please register using your departmental email address and ensure you have permission from your line manager to attend.
