Hong Kong, 8th Feb 2018 (Thursday)
In 2018, The Busy Woman Project set its intentions to raise more awareness on building resilience; with a focus on overall wellbeing. Why do some people suffer real adversity and not buckle? Resilient people have been theorised to possess three characteristics: a firm acceptance of reality; a deep belief that life is meaningful, and exceptional improvisation skills.
"Move & Live" is conceptualized upon this premise and in-line with 1Q18 theme: Living a Purposeful Life.
What is Your Life's Purpose?
Let's get moving, chatting, and LIVE YOUR PURPOSE with like-minded Busy Women.

MOVE: Conscious Movement & Journalling
a 'no sweat' movement & flow experience by Clare Lim from SharedSpace
This movement class is based on flow and improvisation - open to all levels of movers. Getting connected with your body and exploring different movement patterns is a beautiful, freedom of expression.
In this experience, you will explore moving your different joints and weight centers in both linear and spherical movements, exploring shapes, as well as how purposeful movement can make you feel differently in your bodies. Pen down your thoughts, change up your inner chemistry and take purposeful action in your life.

LIVE: What is Your Life's Purpose?
Whether through leadership, parenthood, philanthropy, lifestyle choices, or championing for a cause like gender equality, making an impact requires one to stand for something. That means, knowing your values, your purpose, and following through with action.
Hear from inspiring personalities including those who are dedicating their lives towards social work, others who are empowering people through fitness, as well as individuals who have been in corporate their entire careers and how they derive purpose from their works.
Everyone has the capability to make a difference (even if it is to just one person) and can have an impact on this world - to leave 'a legacy' behind.
Do you have a purpose? Are you living your purpose? If not, how can you take simple steps to discover your own purpose and start living it?
A desire to make a difference, to leave an imprint on this world - perhaps to positively influence one person, a collective, or leave this earth in a better place. #livingmypurpose
