Light up the sky with stars of hope
After severe burnout at 40, I recognise the importance of wellbeing through exercise & mindfulness but also know that the pressures of life can often get in the way. I am taking on this challenge to increase fitness levels whilst pushing myself each day to raise awareness around mental health.
I think that this approach is rare to find and that's why I want to do what I can ...... also I might get fitter!
Mental health itself is invisible, like heart problems, deafness and blindness, etc., but its impact is huge. We needed greater awareness of its importance to all of us so that we can better care about helping those who struggle with it. It would be very lovely if we could 'care' more.
For all the people that suffer in silence going about their daily business whilst fighting the battle, sometimes a minute at a time to keep going, whilst putting the smile on to those around them.
