Looking after your mind & body: Member-only exclusive online events

    Throughout the month, the Vitality Coaches and Experts will be helping to look after your mental health and physical health with virtual online events that you can tune into from the comfort of your home, during your lunchbreak.

    Don’t forget to join our Member Only Facebook Group too – you’ll get daily reminders of the events with links, plus extra exclusive content from daily inspiration, recipes, workouts, competitions & more.

    We have our regular daily sessions on mindfulness, HIIT workouts, wellbeing webinars & more. But for May we’re also hosting a week long calendar for Mental Health Awareness Week, with numerous sessions happening each day! You can find the full details in our Mental Health Awareness Week Events calendar.

    Mindful Mondays

    Every Monday you’ll be able to practice mindfulness with a guided 30 minute session from one of our mental health experts. Mindfulness practices can help us to increase our ability to regulate emotions, as well as decrease stress, anxiety and depression. It can also help us focus our attention and observe our thoughts and feelings. As we become more present, it can help us to make better decisions, to manage our emotions and to be fully engaged.
