“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.”
Thank you for your vlog I enjoyed it. Interesting point about seeing true reactions to yourself through children’s eyes as I work with 4 and 5 year olds and find them so uplifting and honest.
Hi Rachel, thank you for your post. Working with 4 and 5 year old must be amazing as like you say they are so uplifting and honest. They tell you about the world as they see it. Isn’t innocence and ignorance bliss before we try and conform to some set of social boundaries? Children really do tell it how it is without fear of offending or not fitting in. Let’s all act like children but behave like adults :-) x
