Help Mettaminds promote Self Care in Walsall. Mettaminds is focused on promoting 'accessible wellbeing for all' through our workshops, programs and practices. As part of our pledge, we embarked on designing a self care program to promote all aspects of self kindness. Self care looks different to everyone, thus we will spend time exploring and learning about different methods of self care. What works best for you? Have you explored self care, and listened to what works for you? When you give your body what it needs on every level, you can bring it back to optimal health. The program will consist of 10 90- minute sessions. We will explore many different practices, strategies and tools, including: Acupressure Personal Care Nutrition Meditation Massage Holistic therapies Yoga, Tai chi and Qi Gong Journaling and mental health. Self Care pledges Mettaminds will also deliver two self care retreats focusing on a day of investing in yourself and exploring your wellbeing journey.

What we'll deliver:

  • 24 people supported through our Self Care program
  • 20 people enjoying a day focused on self care
  • 44 self care pledges from beneficiaries

Why it's a great idea:

The benefits of supporting our campaign is simple, we would like to offer as many people the chance to experience 'self kindness' and a chance to find practices, therapies and strategies for optimal wellbeing. “Thank you for such a brilliant retreat yesterday. I learnt a lot ....and I am so grateful for all of the time, effort and resources you put into the day. I am particularly appreciative of the opportunity as I have spent many years on a low income and this isn't something I would usually be able to participate in. So your values on being inclusive really mean a lot to me." (Self Care Retreat). "Thank you for the retreat day, it was special. I enjoyed it with all my heart…….. Thank you for the beautiful day".

Steps to get it done:

  • Designing the 6 sessions to ensure they meet particpants needs
  • Purchasing a Bell Tent or external structure, to increase exposure to nature
  • Launching the programs with commmunity stakeholders
  • Launch event for beneficiaries to enrol on the program and retreat
