It’s vacation time finally. Taking vacations reduces stress, improves heart health and mental health, and improves relationships, says research. Time to fly out of Scotland, chasing the sun, and to breath in the hot humid air of the Black Sea in Bulgaria and then the Ionian Sea. See out photos from Greece below.
The students at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester hosted me for their TEDx @RNCM talk this week. I gave a talk on social media and mental health, next to musicians, a female boxer, an adventurer/cyclist, a journalist/author, and more musicians. I loved the atmosphere in the college, the instruments scattered everywhere in hallways and rooms, the numerous stages, that pop up out of nowhere and the creative buzz all around. Which also gave me proper stage fright before my talk that I haven’t felt for years. It turned alright in the end though. Video coming soon.
