HOPE 21 - Health and Wellbeing Festival

Posted by: and , Posted on: - Categories: A National Spotlight, Midlands

A shadow silhouette of a person with arms and face upturned. The words Hope, Optimism, Positivity Energy. The Civil Service Local Logo, CSSC logo and the Charity for Civil Servants logo.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.

A Light in the darkness

Take action! Join us for our online wellbeing event HOPE 21 focusing on Health, Optimism, Positivity and Energy.

Supported by CSSC and the Charity for Civil Servants the agenda includes :

  • yoga,
  • tai chi
  • laughing yoga
  • talks on financial matters
  • menopause
  • muscular skeletal issues
  • mindfulness
  • a range of inspirational speakers,

Participate in as many sessions as you like and feel energetic, optimistic and positive for the year ahead.

For a sneak preview of one of our very special guest speakers click here for a short video about Sophie Bradley-Aukland and how she juggles her life as a mum, an elite footballer and deputy manager of a care home.
