Why Festivals are good for YOU


Why Festivals are Good for YOU!

We head off to Lulworth Cove for Camp Bestival 2019 in a few days and we are sooooooooo excited! Festival prep is well under way with outfit schujjing top of the to-do list. Whilst we totally agree that there’s quite a lot of work involved for such a seemingly short time away, we’d argue it’s totally worth all the effort.

Here’s why we think festivals are good for you, good for your relationship and good for the family.

We’d urge you to drop the routine, all the routines, especially the sleep routines we all fuss so much over. Everyone will sleep eventually, we promise; the intake of fresh air will have topped out so sleep will arrive. There’s no work the next day so catch up then!

The kids like to see you break out of your mum routine; dress-up, dance, sleep in, make friends, cook on a camping stove, get that tent up however long it takes! Your little ones will learn so much.

Celebrate your community: not your neighbours, although celebrate them too but celebrate your like-minded community. Celebrate the music lovers, the dresser-uppers and the free thinkers. Dance like no-one is watching. No one is watching. Well, your kids are and if they are 10 and below then they will be smiling at you. If they are over 10, then they will smile at you again, eventually, in another decade…. But you can’t wait that long to dance. Dance.

Chill. Properly chill. Find a spot, roll out your rug and stop still. Yes, yes, the kids are on the move but come on, if Mr Tumble is on top form you can find a few slow hours to tune out and breath in and out the oxygen.

Wear the glitter. Dress the tent. Re-create the wild you. The give fewer fucks you. The time is but a construct you. This is your holiday, your time off. Be a little wild…be really wild!

Try new food. Listen to different music genres. Get your hair braided, yes you mum! Festivals are excellent opportunities to try something new and no-one, absolutely no-one is going to judge you.

And we guarantee you’ll arrive home with plenty of washing and glitter everywhere but with so many brilliant memories.

See you there, Loungers.

TL CoWorking Club, #no.1.

Love what you do.

We had an excellent first gathering of our #tlcoworkclub where we proved that collaboration over competition is the way forward.

We were joined by some incredible women doing amazing things and we were honoured that they shared their stories with us. We smashed social media content planning for the month of August, declared we were superheroes (our #Marymoment) & laughed along the way.

Rule 1 of the Trouble Lounge Co-Working Club: Be nice.

Next session August 30th, details to be confirmed. DM for more.

What you told us about our co-working session “Some of my Bath friends are freelance/self employed/business owners. Some of my Bath friends are awesome women. Some of my Bath friends are rule breakers, creative thinkers and fun lovers. At the intersection of that Venn diagram is Trouble Lounge Co-Working! This is my business tribe. Who else is in?

Thanks to #revolutionbath for the venue & to #arcticicedcoffee for the fuel.

Next stop: #campbestival2019
