Stepping away from the excitement and beauty of music is an extensive and intense industry that can be incredibly taxing on an individual. This #MusicTalks event is a focused on mental health, wellness and physical well-being for those working in the demanding industry. Musicians work can be very isolating at times and is noted as having one of the highest depression rates in the workforce. The goal of this workshop is to assist in finding a balanced approach to life.
The event starts with a discussion that brings together representatives from the UNISON Benevolent Fund, Fit On Tour, Full Body Efficiency Treatment and local musicians. Discussions will cover a wide variety of topics including how to live a balanced life, looking after yourself mentally/physically and preparing yourself for the challenging hours and work you face in the music industry as many of the jobs in the music business work outside the traditional 9 - 5pm.
Fit On Tour’s mission is to educate and equip the live event industry with resources and information to support a balanced lifestyle, on or off the road. At #MusicTalks:Balance, the Fit On Tour team will guide attendees through a one-hour fitness workshop, demonstrating stretches and exercises that can be done anywhere, anytime using only your body weight. The Fit On Tour team believe exercise is key to maintaining a healthy, balanced life - mentally and physically, and that that your surroundings shouldn’t limit you. Join in as we guide you through a workout that can be done in a hotel room, on a tour bus, or in your venue.
