Nick Elston is one of the leading inspirational speakers on the lived experience of mental health. He is described as a big man with a big heart and a big story, who is incredibly honest. Nick strives to encourage individuals as well as businesses to engage and open up talking about mental health by showing how to harness the same energy that could bring us down into a catalyst that can help us achieve our success.
As I return from a longer podcasting break, I am right on time for us to reflect on our New Year’s resolutions and our struggles to keep up with them. In this episode I team up with Nick Elston to explore how we could set healthier, more sustainable goals. As he is someone, who lives with obsessive compulsive disorder and anxiety, he knows especially well the ups and downs that setting way too challenging goals can bring, but he is also someone, who has learnt better ways to tackle that and is happy to share his learnings with us. Throughout the conversation we get to know Nick a bit better, discuss the vicious cycle of overindulging in December followed by tight restrictions in January, look at the tradition of setting New Year’s goals, reflect if Blue Monday should be ‘a thing’ and check-in on how it all actually impacts our mental health.
