About the Author:

“Hi, my name’s Matt and I am absolutely over the moon to be a Happynesshub Hero. As a member of the emergency services, working long shifts and fitting family life in around other demands can be challenging. I’ve also lived with a condition called Dysthymia for the past 20 years, which is a form of chronic depression. I’m also Buddhist. What does this mean for me? It means that I am more determined to surround myself with positivity, mindfulness and effective relaxation techniques. This is where the Happynesshub is perfect for me. I hope that by sharing my experiences of the 21 day programme with you, you too can benefit in some unique and meaningful way.”

    Matt I’m loving your Gratitude Pot – and how lovely the 3 things you put in it. I felt really touched when you talked about them. I”m about to get my diary out and reflect on my 3 things. I’d love to hear what Marta says about doing different types of meditation. For me I too can get stuck with just one kind which I really love and then it’s nice to experience different approaches. How do you feel about mediation with music vs mediation which is silent?

    Morning Sally. I find that I have trouble concentrating on nothing if I have complete silence which is why I tend to have nature sounds on in the background when I meditate. Sometimes its the sound of rainfall and other times the sounds of a zen garden. The alpha waves in Marta’s meditation was perfect and it’s been a long while since I have done a “guided meditation” so it was a refreshing change. Looking forward to day 2 and meditating again. Namaste

    I was v impressed with the video because I was wavering a bit about doing this. Your message has inspired me to give it a go!

    Aww thank you Veronica. It’s soo easy to waver around doing something and sometimes the agony of choice makes it impossible. Like the sports brand Nike say…….. Just Do It!! Namaste x
