Summer is fast approaching and soon the dreaded ‘get beach body ready’ ads will start appearing. But is there really such a thing as the perfect woman? What impact does our obsession with perfection have on our mental health?
Join us for an event that will once and for all debunk the myth that the perfect woman exists. Instead we’ll help you focus on your mental and physical well-being and how you can be your best self, not a perfect one. We’ll be hearing from two experts, Dr Judith Moring, Consultant Psychiatrist and Wendy MacLennan, the founder of Train, Body, Brain. As ever it will be a relaxed and informal evening, full of practical tips, good conversation and of course accompanied by wine and some extra-delicious nibbles.
We have made On The Inside our charity partner for May, with £2.50 from every ticket sale going to support them. On The Inside is an amazing project - a series of animated films which aims to raise awareness of the condition endometriosis, in which a uterus-like tissue grows outside the uterus, causing lesions and scar tissue that attach to other organs. Endometriosis takes an average of 8-10 years to diagnose, but is incredibly painful and living with it can take its toll on a woman's home and professional life, as well as her mental health. Despite the severity of the condition, it is still little-understood. On The Inside aims to change this, and our donations will help fund the project.
