Hello Stratford!

Happy New Year! I hope you have all been able to make the most of this festive period, in spite of everything that has been happening. It is such a very strange time still with lots going on and so much uncertainty.

Which is why I have teamed up with Stratford Time Bank to bring you Stratford Wellbeing Month this January. We will be bringing you a series of podcasts and live (all be it, online!) events, to support you and your mental health during this difficult time. 

This week is all about mindfulness. In today's podcast, I speak to Sarah Coxall, Manager of Stratford Time Bank, about how important looking after our mental health is, and to Jane Grafton, a retired Corporate Mindfulness Trainer, about mindfulness and the first of our live events, where she will tell us more about mindfulness and give us some techniques we can use to help with our mental health going forward.

If, after listening, you want to take part in the live Zoom session on Wednesday 6th January at 7.30pm, please email me at [email protected] with your name and postcode and I will send you all the details.

If you want to find out more about the session, you can do so on the Stratford Calling Facebook page, @stratfordcalling, or email me for more details. 

There will be more interviews and events throughout January about a range of topics such as stress, physical fitness and anxiety, which you can find out more about on the Facebook page, or email me for a full programme. 

I hope you find Stratford Wellbeing Month helpful and hope to see some of you at the live sessions over the coming weeks.

Keep going Stratford. And look after yourselves.

Thanks for listening.
