Meet our founder: Dr Lucy Loveday
Dr Lucy Loveday (MRCGP, PG Cert Clinical Education) is a GP and medical educationalist. Previously an Associate Research Fellow at the University of Exeter, Lucy is a GP Training Programme Director, an NHS Clinical Entrepreneur, a UK Acumen Fellow, and Regional Director of the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine.
Lucy specialises in movement, mindfulness, and nature-based physical activity for enhanced health and wellbeing. Widely published on the subjects of nature connection, strength and balance exercise in older age, resilience, and mental health, Lucy also delivers wellbeing workshops and public speaking nationally.
Focused on addressing health inequalities and equity of access to green space, Lucy is on a mission to bring movement, nature and mindfulness to the forefront of conversations within mainstream healthcare. Founding Movement & the Mind has been a major part of this.
It begins with this man. My dad.
When I was 11 years old, my dad was hospitalised by a severe mental health crisis. He was rendered almost unresponsive by depression, but over the years I observed him transform his health through running. It offered him solace and a sense of freedom, and he’s since run several marathons.
Driven by a curiosity to understand how movement benefits the mind, as well as the science behind positive psychology and mindfulness for human performance, I embarked on a journey of discovery. Through countless inspiring conversations along the way, I’ve learned that Dad is far from alone.
Movement & the Mind is the culmination of this dynamic and evolving journey. It means so much to be part of creating this collaboratively, and to bring people together to engage in this urgent and important conversation. Together, Movement & the Mind is bridging the gap between evidence and meaningful action.
Movement & the Mind is a pioneering educational platform and global community bringing people together to learn, share, move, and connect. Join us, and be part of the conversation.
