Resilience & wellbeing event

Lib Dem Executive Team member and business / well-being coach Viv Vella recently held a members’ event centred on boosting well-being and resilience. She recommended the following resources:

Exercise & movement

  • Movement is crucial to our wellbeing, and lockdown has made exercising difficult for many people. Couch to 5k is an app to help everyone (especially complete beginners!) get running. 

Wellbeing & mental health resources

  • The 5 minute journal app (available on the App store and Google Play) is designed to increase wellbeing by focusing on positive experiences and self reflection 
  • There are a number of apps available to aid in mindfulness - some popular choices are Headspace / Calm / Insight Timer
  • Sleepio is a digital CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) program designed to help you sleep better
  • BBC Headroom is a digital `mental health toolkit' full of resources and tips to help you look after your mental health
  • Bounce Forward is a free resilience course for parents in London


Viv also has some more specific resources for people experiencing domestic abuse and eating disorders - if you would like her to send you any of these resources please send an enquiry to [email protected]
