Wellness Compass Week Six – Cognition Ignition

Posted by Craig Morrow, 4th June 2020, 20:25pm

Wellness Compass is participatory community project that nurtures wellbeing. It is the people of Lincolnshire’s creative guide to nurturing wellbeing. Keeping our bodies and minds active, healthy and strong, together.

Week Six – Cognition Ignition

Our inspiration for this project has come from the NHS Five Steps to Wellbeing but this week we are adding our own step – reflection.

After spending the past 5 weeks exploring how culture and creativity can support our wellbeing we are taking the time to reflect on what positives we’ve found and how we can carry them with us.

Wellness Compass is all about having a go and trying things out, so that we have the opportunity to find something that really works for us over the long term.

Although this is the last week our staff will be sharing their ideas and insight, our invitation to you, to contribute towards any episode in this series is now open until 1st July whilst our team are furloughed.

To give you some inspiration the LPAC team have shared some examples on YouTube of how they are using culture and creativity to nurture their wellbeing, but this is just to get the ball rolling.


What we are really interested in is the approach of our community members. We want to hear your stories, hear and see creative adventures, and learn from your advice.

How to Submit

Submissions for all five stations are now open until 1 July.
