What we're about

Review from members about the Meetup: "People pay thousands to learn the ideas we shared in meet-up on Sunday, such an awesome group"

LET'S get together for collective development and trust me time spent on yourself is time we'll spent, and have a fun time while doing it. The general principle of this group is to the focus on developing self and others!πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ

Fun and having a great time will be at heart of the meetups of this group!πŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒπŸ‘ŒβœŠ

Some of the things to come: Workshops, knowledge events and activities involving the following:

Teamwork, Productivity, Giving Back, Communication Skills, Relationship Building, Leadership, Meditation, Philosophy of life, Exercise, Healthy food, Fitness, Coping with mental illness, Many social get togethers, External speakers, Sharing ideas circles, Discussions both formal and informal.🧐

My reason behind the group is that I embarked on a journey to tackle my depression and anxiety 5 years ago, and have indeed come a very long way. Through the constant desire and push to work on myself, I have seen a self transformation. A beautiful and positive transformation. I barely recognise the me of 5 years ago!🀩

I want to give back and share some of the lessons I picked along the way. More importantly I want to learn from the self improvers or those willing to self improve, who will I'm sure bring much to the group. I want to create an environment that supports and accepts self development unapologetically. A platform to dissect our abilities and look at improving them.😊

The power of the collective will be essential. We should not and will underestimate the importance of a group of people with a common goal. I strongly believe in that by coming together we will inspire, motivate and push each other to work harder on ourselves. It will be hard but we will keep at it hard to get there and reach the best version of ourselves!!!🌍

I have also created an Instagram account for the meet-up: bristol_selfimproverswellbeing (where I will be publishing some of the ideas discussed in our meetups)! The content will strictly be in line with the group's policy.

Please feel free to follow my personal Instagram account where I publish many self improvement posts: the_improvers_legion !

I'll aim to have a meet up a month at least, if not more. Preferably on a Sunday.

Anyone wanting post something useful about selfde elopement to the group please message me privately and I will enable the message board temporarily for you. I would to filter what gets sent to the group😊

Guys don't miss this, you will love the experience!πŸ‘‡πŸ‘Œ --Express yourself with Emma Boddy -- β€œA playful path is the shortest road to happiness.”- the Oaqui Emma is an actress and Personal Performance Coach with a background in mental health & runs 'Express Yourself' workshops improvised group games for well-being - guiding participants through a series of fun group exercises that have been taken from warm-up theatre games to help relieve stress. Emma regularly facilitates for mental Health Charities, Schools & Universities around the UK as well as at Festivals during the summer months-helping participants to get out of their heads & into the moment, with an opportunity to REALLY express themselves with a massive dose of laughter - Excellent stress reliever & wonderful 'feel good factor' How does it work Emma? When engaging in improvised group games the part of the brain connected to self censoring is shut off, helping to remove inhibitions, at the same time, there is increased activity in the part of the brain responsible for self-expression, such as telling stories & responding to stimulus. By being in the moment or being mindful - we can forget the worries & fears about things beyond what we're experiencing right now. This is a powerful & fun workshop to quieten the thoughts that hold us back. Suitable for 18+ beginners & experienced. Testimonials Simon Hall Tutor, Writing and Business Skills, University of Cambridge ~ Author ~ Journalist, ex BBC ~ Communications Consultant. February 8, 2019 I had a fantastic evening. I wasn’t sure quite what to expect, but Emma created an immediate rapport with the group, and a great sense of fun and entertainment. I also learnt a lot about myself, and how I express myself, which is proved invaluable in my work as a journalist and writer. A terrific event, an uplifting combination of enjoyment and education and I would strongly recommend Emma and her work to anyone. Liam McKinnon OTR Bristol | Freelance PR & Digital Consultant. February 20, 2018 Emma facilitated an 'Express Yourself' workshop for young people at Off the Record Bristol (OTR). Emma created a trusting and open space for us all to be ourselves. We had a lot of fun, and instead of over-thinking, we were listening and responding to each other, being creative and testing our boundaries without really thinking about it! OTR would have Emma back again and again - the group felt both relaxed and energised after the workshop. Thanks Emma Abigail Moselle The Royal Court Theatre November 11, 2017 I attended an improv workshop Emma gave in August 2017; she created a fantastic and safe yet challenging environment, and I enjoyed it so much that I asked her to come and do another workshop for my university drama society! The workshop was immensely popular, Emma was great and took everybody's needs into account and the students all said they would go again were she to return. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/stories-42922769/world-hacks-how-improv-helped-me-beat-anxiety Thanks and hope to see many new and old faces!
