As part of our Connection Point programme we're pleased to bring you a set of meditation videos and a health and wellbeing creativity checklist.

Eastleigh Borough Council also have a great website page on supporting your health and wellbeing at home.

Meditation, guidance and support

Meditation can help us keep calm and centred and is hugely beneficial for our general health and wellbeing, helping alleviate anxiety. Regular mediation practice can bring awareness to unhelpful thought patterns, enabling you to stay grounded in times of stress.

We know that meditation can seem intimidating at first, so our Arts and Health Producer Suna Imre has put together a series of short meditation videos to give you some hints and tips on how to get started.

Mind Your Own – A Health and wellbeing creativity checklist

Most agree that self-isolation can be challenging. The days can feel repetitive, and it’s sometimes hard to decide how best to spend your time now your usual routine has been disrupted.

Our new Mind Your Own Creativity Checklist (download PDF) gives you some tools to monitor your isolation time and feel a sense of achievement at the end of the day.

The Inspiring Minds Gallery - making art to support better mental health

Periods of isolation can be really challenging for our mental health at the best of times, but especially now as the lockdown has been extended. The Point and Solent Mind are partnering up to offer a creative platform for individuals to express their feelings and thoughts artistically about this extraordinary period of time through the Inspiring Minds Gallery
