‘Happiness is about feeling good’

Speaking about the event, Bullring & Grand Central’s Marketing Manager, Danielle Bozward, comments: “Happiness is about so much more than just looking good – it’s about feeling good too, and there are so many things that can affect our mood. From food and finance, to sleep and self-care, this is the ultimate three-day celebration of mind, body, and soul.

Find Your Happier isn’t about short-term New Year’s resolutions that you’ll inevitably break, it’s about committing to a year of ‘you’ and finding things that make you feel great. We’ve got inclusive classes, creative workshops, Q&A sessions, and inspirational talks in abundance, so make sure you come down and join us for our wellness extravaganza.”

Speaking about bringing his expertise to the festival, Dr. Alex comments: “I’m so excited to be part of this event at Bullring, speaking about a topic that I feel so passionate about in the wonderful city of Birmingham! I’m honoured to be taking to the stage first on Friday to answer Birmingham’s wellbeing questions, and I’m equally looking forward to running a session all about men’s mental health later that afternoon. 

“With everything from talks on nutrition, money management, and wellbeing; through to yoga, fitness sessions, and body-positive dance classes: this festival is exactly what we need to see more of. It’s completely free, there’s something for everyone, and is set to be unmissable.”
