Event description

Description

Writing for wellbeing is a 6 week course aiming to increase happiness using creative writing exercises and mindfulness techniques.

The principles of positive psychology state that a meaningful, pleasurable and engaged life can improve wellbeing and studies have shown that creative writing can boost low mood. Writing for wellbeing offers a safe, social space for people to explore their emotions with no judgement, no expectations and no pressure to share! Nobody will care about your scruffy handwriting, in/ability to spell or the number of fancy words you know how to use - this course is not about that - no previous creative writing experience is necessary & everyone is equally welcome.

In today's 21st century tech led society, more & more people are suffering from anxiety, depression, loneliness and social isolation than ever before, despite the availability of 'social' media & other various methods of communication. Low self-esteem can also lead people to believe that they are 'not creative' or 'clever enough' to do a course like this - but this is simply PANTs!! (persistent, automatic/annoying negative thinking). If you can relate to this - perhaps Writing for Wellbeing is the course for you.

In the first session you will be guided through some tasks/activities to get you thinking about your 'inner critic' and given some ways to rip up your PANTs! All session materials will be provided, but please bring a notebook and pen. This is a course of 6 sessions taking place weekly (£25 per session) both in Castlepoint Library (11am-12:30) & at the Suncliffe Hotel (6:30pm-8pm). Advance booking of all six qualifies for a discount (6 for 5 = £125) if paid in full by Friday February 9th 2018.

Please note that Eventbrite adds a fee.
