The UK’s first virtual wellbeing festival is set to take place on 8-10 May and everyone is invited! No worrying about queues and busy environments, noise levels or accessibility requirements, you can attend from the comfort of your own home.

The Live Life Well Weekender will bring together experts, health professionals and industry leaders from across the wellbeing industry, for over thirty events that will explore all areas of wellbeing to spark discussions and provide the practical tools that people desperately need to help protect their own, and their families’ wellbeing now, and as we come out of lockdown.

It is a not-for-profit event and will be accessible to all with FREE tickets for all frontline and key workers, FREE access for school, university and college students, as well as FREE tickets for those in need who are on low incomes or unemployed as a result of the pandemic.
A nominal fee of £10 per household for general admission provides visitors with unlimited access to the whole three-days of content, of which all profits received will go charity to support the national NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Appeal.

The three-day virtual festival has been created to provide a range of expert talks, workshops, events and resources, and will explore everything from health and fitness, looking after your mental health, managing stress and anxiety, relationships and loneliness, safeguarding your children, to organising your finances, working from home, home-schooling and studying, whilst helping you to take care of yourself and your family emotionally and physically.  

The line-up is packed with credible experts covering every imaginable subject, so there should be something that will pique everyone’s interest. 

Discussions on how to manage anxiety, low mood, depression and day-to-day worry and fear will see mental health campaigner Natasha Devon, founder of Chasing The Stigma Jake Mills, psychotherapist and media consultant Dr. Aaron Balick, author of The Anxious Man Josh Roberts, and mental health advocate Rachel Kelly.

Visitors will be able to learn about food and nutrition in lockdown with Amy Lanza, Happy Kitchen author Rachel Kelly, Nutritionist Rosie Letts, and zero-waste chef Max La Manna who will be hosting a cook-along you can do at home, as well as how stress can affect your health with The Gut Stuff duo Alana and Lisa Mcfarlane.

Parents will benefit from a range of talks on ‘How to Raise Happy & Resilient Kids in Lockdown’ with early year’s experts iGROWco, as well as ‘How to Safeguard Our Children’s Wellbeing’ with child wellbeing professional Dr. Radha and award-winning coach Natalie Costa. To add a touch of reality author Carla Naumburg, author of ‘How to Stop Losing Your Sh*t With Your Kids’ will be discussing calm parenting techniques and self-care for parents, all supported and hosted by Suzanne Alderson, founder of charity Parenting Mental Health.

For those of us who need a little mental brain training to look at the positives in life, motivational speaker and the only woman to have sailed around the world and skied the whole distance to the South Pole; The Adventure Psychologist Paula Reid will be talking. Happiness Coach Stephanie Peltier, and positivity advocate and global influencer Molly Forbes will also be sharing their insights into turning negatives into positives and being happy in your skin.
