I am happy to see so many of you settling in well in your new home, and starting to enjoy what International Hall has to offer, from our great squash court to IH cinema. As part of our September’s theme of Exploring Bloomsbury, it was nice to see many of you enjoying the tour of the area, as well as, the presentation of Ricci De Freitas, our local Bloomsbury historian, and author, about this part of London.
With the World Mental Health Day on October 10th, we turn our attention to mental well-being. On the 10th we will screen A Beautiful Mind a great film centered on real-life struggles of Professor John Nash, a Nobel Prize winner. We will have a discussion about the film and mental health following the screening in the LG Lounge.
On 30 October, Dr Adrian Clark of Connaught Hall will give a presentation about Happiness and Well-being. Our yoga classes and sports sessions are also great ways to enhance your physical and mental health. For those of you who like to dance, we are going to have dance workshops once a week starting shortly, the first of which will be taught by yours truly. Watch this space for more details!
As always, feel free to contact me or my team for any concerns you may have. We are always here to help.
Dr Saeed Zeydabadi-Nejad
