You And Your Pet

We know that many people in Tunbridge Wells own pets, whether that is a dog, cat or another type of pet! With so many of us now spending more time at home with our pets, here’s our quick and easy fact sheet to answer some of your questions about dog walking and how to keep your pets entertained indoors during lockdown.

Gratitude

It’s easy to let the ordinary pass by unnoticed. So much good happens in the ordinary – the everyday, we just need to train ourselves to notice and be grateful.

Mindful Breaks

Taking regular mindful breaks (before you need one) keeps us resourceful, creative and productive throughout the day – instead of feeling completely wiped-out and exhausted at the end of the day.

Stress First Aid

Stressful situations happen to us all, indeed they are intrinsic to life as are happy and joyful moments. It’s how we react to stress that’s key.

Breathing Space

You can do this practice for one minute or for as long as you like.

This Is Us Dance

This Is Us Dance, an inclusive dance company based in Tunbridge Wells, are offering online creative sessions for all. The online sessions range from 5 minute creative tasks, to longer 15 minute creative classes. Some of the recent favourites have included dance machines, scavenger hunts and texture explorations in the garden. These are accessible activities will have you and your family smiling in minutes.
