It’s been all systems go on the Rocket trail since we launched, so this week we’re calming things down with Wellness Week, running from Monday 16th August to Sunday 22nd August. Every space cadet needs to recharge their batteries once in a while!
Need some tips on re-centring and relaxing? We’ll have some mindfulness videos on our social channels @RocketRoundLeicester from the lovely complementary therapy team at LOROS Hospice.
As any astronaut knows, nutrition is an important part of wellness, and they’ll be some delicious and healthy recipe cards available in our Trail Hub Shop in the Highcross, with tasty snacks like hummus to keep energy levels sky high! Pop along and pick one up!
If harmonising your chakra isn’t for you, maybe you’d like to head for the city’s many green spaces for some fresh air? There are spectacular Rockets to visit in Abbey Park, Victoria Park, Castle Gardens as well as in pocket parks and squares. Pick up a trail map from our Trail Hub Shop, or download our app!
Many of our Rockets have been designed to be therapeutic but for artist Betti Moretti that’s the whole point of her Relaxing Rocket! Given the stress of COVID-19, Betti believes that mindfulness is even more important for our mental wellbeing today. Sponsored by the University of Leicester, the Rocket’s intricate detail is designed to give people a gentle nudge to stop, focus and think about what is important in life.
Whatever you do this week, relax and enjoy your #RocketRoundLeicester trail!
