Speak­ing up

Daniel Macpher­son on why men need to talk about men­tal health, plus sleep mists to help set­tle ba­bies

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - /wellness -

My favourite health app is… Headspace. I’ve been us­ing it for a few years now. At one point, I med­i­tated ev­ery day for a year and a half, but I’ve been a bit in­con­sis­tent re­cently. It feels like com­ing home to hang with an old friend.

I’m most proud of… my fam­ily first and fore­most. Right now

I’m most proud of be­ing a part of The 20/20 Men-tal­ity Project, which is an in­cred­i­ble ini­tia­tive to des­tig­ma­tise the no­tion that it is un­manly to ask for help, and pro­mot­ing men’s men­tal well­be­ing.

I’m in­spired by… peo­ple who haven’t come from a sport­ing back­ground who walk into a gym, Crossfit class or swim squad for the first time. It can be in­tim­i­dat­ing, and takes a lot of guts.

Daniel Macpher­son is an am­bas­sador for The 2020 Men-tal­ity project; 2020men­tal­ity.com.au.
