I’m so excited about this great new project, #run3forme, which marries my 2 big passions: mental health advocacy and running!
Do you know someone who is fighting for their life, recovering after a suicide attempt? Have you lost someone to suicide? I want to run for them.1
Running has changed my life. It’s improved my health, while also serving as a great tool to fight my depression and anxiety.
I nearly died by suicide in 2012. The past several years have been all about recovery and forming a safe community of people who understand what it’s like to reach the lowest point of your life.
I get it.
Would you send me your story? A story of struggle, survival, or loss? You can firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: #run3forme and I’ll run 3 miles in your honor, or in memory of your friend or loved one.
I’ll share an image from the day’s run on Instagram and Twitter, using the hashtag #run3forme, and thousands of people from around the globe will join with you in your mourning and/or your fight to live another day.
Join the conversation on Twitter and Instagram by using the hashtag #run3forme – see ya there!
Join the 7-day self care challenge!
“Self care” is one of pop psychology’s latest buzzwords, but this 7-day challenge, created by author, pastor, and self care coach, Steve Austin, is a guide full of helpful, practical content for readers from all walks of life.
If you have ever felt hopeless or believed that all the bad things in your life are beyond redemption, if you have ever felt unworthy of being loved or accepted or feared what would happen if people found out your secrets, you will find this 7-Day Self Care Challenge to be a comfort and a guide for a new kind of living. No matter your starting point, the tools in this quick self care overview will help brave but wounded souls begin to answer the question, “Now what?”
Steve Austin knows that recovery and self care are possible because he has hit rock bottom and lived to tell about it. By displaying a great deal of vulnerability, courage, and grace, Steve hopes this simple 7-day challenge will motivate others to not only seek the help they need, but also spark a discussion around the necessity of self-care in everyday life.
