When was the last time you stopped to take a moment to consider your social wellbeing?
Last week, we welcomed over 60 guests to our first Talking Straight LIVE event at Ruby Lane Wholefoods to discuss the topic & question “How Socially Healthy Are You?”.
We were joined by an epic line up of panellists, including TV Presenter & MC Teigan Nash, Former Professional Athlete & Podcast Host Katie Williams, Meditation Teacher & Founder of Soul Alive Luke McLeod & Professional Photographer & former Actress Gemma Peanut. Each of these leading souls brought their own flares & expertise to share their thoughts & personal stories about how they’ve developed & nourished meaningful relationships with people.
Throughout the discussion, the panel spoke about the importance of interacting in positive ways & why as human beings we crave connection. The way we connect to people, experience a sense of belonging & adapt to social situations with those around us all contribute to our social health. But when we’re fast-tracking our lives due to lack of time & the need for convenience, we can often miss out on the important connections we could be making if we took time to step out from behind the screen & be present with others.
Our guests were also treated to live music, a plant-based spread & a kombucha or wine on arrival before finding their seats & embracing an open discussion about all things social health.
We couldn’t allow our guests to leave empty-handed. We partnered with over 20 like-minded brands to create the BIGGEST & GREATEST Goodie Box of all time. Valued at over $250, our guests & panel received products & discounts from brands such as, Pic’s Peanut Butter, Coco Luxe, Almo, Set The Bar, Bean Body Care, Amperna, Human Bean Co, Dr Bronner’s, Alter Eco, Bohemia Blowdry Bar, pH Clinic, Ulu Hye, STRONG Fitness Magazine, Ruby Lane, Corethentic, Undivided Food Co, Miss Lilly Apparel, Eloments Tea, Friday's Flowers & Sculpt Barre Fitness.
