Wellbeing with the MRG: Using improv to improve your mental health
The last 12 months have been difficult for us all. Many of us have been working from home, not seeing friends or family. For some, we may have even lost our jobs or been furloughed. The impact on our mental health is not to be underestimated. There are things we can do however to help; even small things that can anchor our minds to be in the moment. We’ve asked Charlie Martin, a former MRG-er and actor, writer and comedian to introduce us to how the power of improv can be used to help in our everyday life as well as being rejuvenating, revitalising and also something a bit different and new.
- A fun and friendly taster of how improv can boost your mental health and well-being
- Try out a few games to shake off the blues and get out of your head
- Experience exercises that have already helped bring people together online and become more confident
- No need to be the office clown! Improv isn’t about making jokes. It’s about being supportive and “finding the joy” in the present moment
- A chance to learn something new that might help you find out more about yourself!
