Life often moves at great speed, whether you’re racing forward or spinning on the spot, a constant stream of plans, commitments, people and places can leave little time to focus on yourself. When we are living such busy lives self-care is crucial, but it can be hard to find time to prioritise it on a regular basis.
Self-reflection and being present in the moment are simple practices that can help you to focus on your wellbeing. At Step Ball Change Creative Wellbeing, these practices are combined with creative expression, providing a safe space where you can reconnect with yourself and explore your feelings.
In his 2005 book ‘No Man is an Island’ Thomas Merton said “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” Taking part in simple expressive art activities, such as collaging or using pastels, paints and pens to explore a theme, can be both relaxing and replenishing. You can switch off and enjoy exploring your creativity, and then step back and reflect on what you have created with fresh perspective.
Treat yourself to a weekend dedicated entirely to you
This June Step Ball Change is hosting a weekend in the Lake District that combines creative expressive workshops with a relaxing break in the countryside. Guests can explore their creative side, take some time to reflect, and relax and enjoy the stunning views while Step Ball Change takes care of the rest. Accommodation, meals and all activities are included so you can fully enjoy a weekend with no responsibilities focused completely on you.
