Ok, so we’re pretty gutted we won’t be going to Glastonbury this year – but who said ALL festivals have been cancelled?
On Friday 17th April, Getahead will be launching their first all-day virtual mental health and wellbeing festival – accessible to anyone with an internet connection!
The aim of the festival is to bring some fun and a little light relief but also some important life skills for coping with working from home. As well as conversations about coping with stress and mental health at this time, the festival will end with a well-deserved drink!
Split into three parts, this is what you can look forward too…
The morning will kick off with a workout by Bodyweight D who will be teaching a simple class that the whole family can enjoy. From toddlers to grandparents the main aim is to get everyone moving.
Nutritionist Le’Nise Brothers will be running a session on ‘How to Build Your Mental Resilience with Diet and Lifestyle’. She will also be talking about how to keep healthy during lockdown and ways to avoid the junk food cravings!
DJ and sleep scientist Tom Middleton will give a talk on ‘Anxiety and Sleep – how to break the cycle’. He’s behind much of the music for the best-selling Calm app and will be helping guests understand more about the effect of anxiety on sleep.
Chevy Rough will be talking about critical thinking and how it is so important at this time. His session will be on ‘How to Unlock Energy, Focus and Clear Thinking for the Road Ahead’.
The festival will be rounded off with some FUN courtesy of a mindful cocktail making session with the lovely Pritesh Mody from World of Zing. Guests can pre-order cocktails from his website to be delivered in time for the festival.
The festival will be available through their YouTube channel and guests will be able to sign up for a free ticket and access through Dice
