Summer is almost upon us and the time has come to stretch your legs and take those weary, aching bones out into the world.
The #YTASWellbeingChallenge invites you to breathe new life into surroundings that might have become stale during lockdown and travel restrictions. We’ve curated a playlist of stimulating and energising podcasts, offering food for your ears and your mind whilst you pound the pavement or venture off the beaten track in your local area.
Each day for 14 days, you’ll hear new perspectives, creative ideas, challenging topics and see the potential for new stories to emerge from familiar spaces. And you’ll get some fresh air too, which is nice.
Share your adventures on Twitter or Instagram using #YTASWellbeingChallenge, and any epiphanies you may have had relating to your creative practice along the way.
Here’s all the links you need for the first week. If you want to go faster or slower than the suggested dates, or mix it up a bit, that’s totally fine. We’ll post the links for week two nearer the time.
If you want to record your experience of the #YTASWellbeingChallenge, we’ve also made a journal to help you to reflect on how the challenge influenced your wellbeing.
