Since the pandemic, most of us have learnt to set aside to look after ourselves and our mental health. But in this super fast-paced world, finding the real time is another story. Luckily for us, the Birmingham boat trip GoBoat has partnered up with mindfulness expert Dr. Audrey Tang to host early morning wellness cruises. All before we head off to work!
These 5am to 9am Wellness Cruises will encourage Brits to slow down and set the tone for a calm day ahead. They will include posture alignment, breathing exercises, group vibration alignment and a body scan relaxation before finishing with an intention setting and gratitude practice, as you float down Birmingham’s lengthy canals.
Taking place before work on ‘hump day’ (Wednesday, May 3), at The Water’s Edge, Brindleyplace. These Wellness Cruises will offer three 60-minute sessions for £10 per person. Phones will also be banned, so your early morning inbox doesn’t become a distraction.
GoBoat is a self-driven boating experience, however for these 5 to 9 wellness cruises, each boat will provide a captain. Each eco-friendly electric boat also has an almost silent motor meaning you can relax and unwind in peace. Plus, if you attend the earlier classes, you may even glimpse the sunrise.
“Our body’s natural circadian rhythms respond well to the daylight, and with mornings getting lighter, giving yourself an early positive start to the day can set the tone for the rest of the day,” said Dr. Audrey Tang. “But this doesn’t mean jumping out of bed to answer emails at 5.30am. Instead it’s great to take that time to engage in simple mindfulness practices.”
