Focusing on Breathing Spaces

February 18, 2019

Last week at St Luke's we had a focus group to bring people together to discuss what Breathing Spaces means to different people, why it is important and how people can get involved in the new project.

 

"I couldn't relax all day, but taking part in that session thinking about Breathing Spaces really helped me to relax - I thoroughly enjoyed it!" Bernice

 

Here are some notes from our session:

 

 

When we asked what do people think of when they think of breathing Spaces people said:

 

Flowers

Fresh Air

Tranquility

Relaxation

Animals

Rain/Sunshine

Open air Cafes

Socialising outside

 

When we asked how people felt about Breathing Spaces,

people said:

 

Uplifted

Affecting our mood

Brain opens up and become more aware

Happy,

Sense of less pollution

Embracing

Natural

Replenished

Refreshed

Sleep better

Forgetting worries

 

 

 

 

When we asked people what they needed Breathing Space from,

people said:

 

Social Media

Stress

Emails,

Phone calls

TV

Noisy Neighbours

Hassle

Noise Pollution

Cars

Work

Barking Dogs

To get out of the house

To go slower - a different pace.

For a change of atmosphere.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We also came up with lists of places that people would like to visit and different art forms that people would like to use to engage and explore different Breathing Spaces.
