Ben is a pitch attendant and Lifeguard for both Aura Leisure & DKIT Sport, Bressie is an active mental health campaigner and co-founder of A Lust For Life. These two men took time out of their day to sit down and talk about their mental wellness.
Both Bressie and Ben have had their own personal battles with mental health and in a five part mini-series we can see their discussion unfold covering areas of fighting the stigma related to mental health, battling depression & anxiety, how mental health should be openly discussed and how we can move forward.
Please visit our YouTube channel here to view each of the 5 videos in the mini-series as they cover such universal topics that affect at least one person in our lives. Mental health needs to be discussed, or simply just Be Aware.
We are delighted to announce here at Aura Leisure that we recently took part in RLSS UK's Pool Extract Board (PXB) taining to give our pool lifeguards the skills to use the new rescue equipment.
Aura Leisure Cnetre approved training centre co-ordinator Emma Donegan, said:
“The Aura team thoroughly enjoyed the training and were particularly impressed with the overall efficiency of the new spinal boards. Not only does it reduce the number of steps needed, which increases the speed of immobilisation and extraction of a casualty, but it also requires less people, which is fantastic. The training was highly organised and the team learnt a lot on the day, so we’re very happy to be one of the first centres in Ireland to have undertaken the training with the RLSS UK.

Aura Leisure and MyMind are working together to highlight the important link between physical and mental wellbeing.
No matter your age or fitness level, you can learn to use exercise as a powerful tool to boost your mental wellbeing and resilience. Exercise is one of the little things we can all do to look after our wellbeing. We can feel more energetic throughout the day, sleep better at night, have sharper memories, and feel more relaxed and positive about ourselves and our lives. Motivational speaker and founder of Fighting Fit for Ewings (FFFE) Nikki Bradley is an advocate for physical and mental fitness. Nikki is working with both MyMind and Aura to encourage others to look after their own mental wellbeing through exercise, getting support for their difficulties and staying positive. Nikki is currently training for the 0-60 challenge with Aura Leisure, which will see her go from being a weak swimmer to swimming 60 lengths of the pool!
Good luck Nikki, we know you can do it!

Don't sweat it, we're here to help!
This lent, instead of ‘giving up’ something, why not ‘take up’ something positive instead?
So many of us have tried the diets where we starve ourselves, or enthusiastically pushed ourselves to the limit in the gym throughout January. Psychological studies have shown again and again that after about four to six weeks most people feel the sacrifices are too much compared to the results achieved – so we give up! It’s simply too hard to stay motivated when you’re doing it on your own.
Sleep plays an important role in your physical health. It is just as actively valuable as regular exercise and quality nutrition.
