WORLD OF WELLNESS AND WRITING LAUNCHES ITS FIRST FAIR
This elegant affair is to be held in the beautiful hotel of West Park. It overlooks the open grounds of the Stray in the quintessentially English spa town of Harrogate. There will be stalls showcasing nutritional advice and products to keep you focused, practices to help you recharge and find balance, experts in the field of fitness and posture, literary professionals and of course writing products and services.
You can discover new healthy lifestyle tips, writing materials/skills and attend mini workshops/presentation. It’s also an opportunity to find out what events and courses are coming up soon in your area. It is important to liaise and collaborate with your local community, both as an individual and a business. It is a very rewarding experience – both ways!
STOP! AND REFILL YOUR CREATIVE WELL
Do you work in a creative field? Are you a writer, author, poet, blogger, novelist, reporter…. or just have to write a lot of reports or marketing content at work? If so, how do you avoid burnout, keep your creative juices flowing, stay focused, become more productive, keep your energy levels up….? Don’t worry, at the World of Wellness and Writing, we have lots of tips and hacks to help you.
Being a writer does not involve musing barefoot through blossom-covered archways and pondering on the meaning of life as many think. The creative process is a demanding and often very draining experience.
“The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.” ― Émile Zola.
As Zola says, it involves hard work. But to be a successful writer you also need several other key ingredients such as patience, passion, the ability to accept criticism, and so on. However, there is one fundamental ingredient required by writers that often goes unmentioned: Self Care.
THE IMPORTANCE OF SELF CARE
Self care is perhaps of the most important element in a creative person’s life. As we deplete ourselves of energy and constantly delve within to find new ideas, inspiration and drive, we need to look after ourselves. Sadly most of us don’t and we experience burnout or frustration.
Here at the World of Wellness and Writing we believe in promoting self care for all writers from healthy lifestyle choices to ideas for refilling your creative well.
Come visit our fascinating stalls and uncover the secrets to uplevel your writing… or just gentle and inviting ways to improve your wellbeing.
