PROJECT YOU – SELF CARE COURSE
Are you looking after yourself as much as you could do? Self-care is essential to a flourishing life. We need to replenish, recharge, and restore our bodies so that we can meet the demands of modern life, keep our immune systems healthy and build resilience.
This 8-week course (starting 20th October at 1 p.m. - 2.30 p.m) will support you in your own project of self-care. Together we will explore your beliefs about self-care, and current research on sleep, hydration, exercise, eating well, rest and relaxation. We will bring our knowledge of positive psychology to these subjects to help you create healthy habits for life, which will improve your health and wellbeing.
If you would like to have more energy, feel happier and more in control of your life, join us to start Project You by emailing your interest to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have been very fortunate with John Lewis donating money to us at Creative Options. We thought we would like to share the good news with you and some photos.
Plan to be in the car park on Wood mill lane at 11.45am and will meet folk there.
If you can please let us know if you hope to come so we have an idea of numbers and also to ensure we do not set off without anyone.
Come along to our open to all Arts and Kids Crafts workshops 9am-5.30pm. Our sponsor for the event, Utilita will be helping to fundraise for Creative Options Community Project (a Southampton mental health charity). Some of the Art displayed will have been designed and painted by our members. Please see below to find out more information. Hope to see you there, maybe an activity during the school holidays as an activity for all ages?
Please can you forward on to those you think should benefit from this event.
