Event description

Description

Thrive in the City are passionate about creating a safe, creative, inspiring and physical space for workers and residents in the City of London. Outside of the normal working environment, the space will enable people to be who they are, provide choice, create support networks and leave behind the stigma, hierarchy and pressures of everyday working life.

But before we do that we first need to know what City workers and residents want and what they need. ‘Thrive in the City’ is a programme of events celebrating Mental Health in the City on 27 November 2017 and is being curated in collaboration with Business in the Community, Business Healthy, Mind, Thrive LDN, Minds@Work, City Mental Health Alliance, Team London Bridge and the Dragon Café.

We believe that providing ‘choice’ is an important component to support our mental wellbeing. Our focus is specifically around creating ‘choice’ to both prevent mental ill-health and to offer choice in ways we can support our recovery. Over 60 practitioners and 20 venues have generously donated their time and space on the day for free to explore ways we can offer that ‘choice’ to support ourselves, our friends and our colleagues in the City with their mental wellbeing.

All we ask in return is for you to book onto a free ‘Thrive in the City’ session and give us feedback on the session you attended.

14.30 – 15.30 Carefree Singing, Light Mind – (tabitha@lightmind.me)

Carefree singing’ is active mindfulness – an uplifting way to re-boot, boost energy levels, increase oxygen flow and feel-good hormones. There’s no splitting to different voice parts, everyone sings (or attempts to sing!) the tune so we’re all in it together. This kind of ‘time-out’ can build resilience and improve our ability to manage stress through learning to let go of judgment and respond to life more playfully. It’s a joyful way of connecting with colleagues and puts us firmly in the moment - it’s really hard to think about the ‘to do’ list when belting out a power ballad or warbling to Whitney!
