EP028: New Habits with Benjamin Stubbs

This week, Keds and Ben talk about New Habits and how they can help you with your mental health, changing the little things you do can give you more time and make you feel less stressed.

New Habits is the theme of this week's Happy Appy and we'll be asking participants to reduce the time they spend on social media, watching the news, but also consciously choosing the media that they watch.

Ben also talks about how getting outside for 20 mins a day in daylight will help your mood, just by sitting in the garden, going out on your break... anything to get some natural light.

Then it's thinking about what you can do with your new-found time (due to minimised scrolling and cutting down on binge-watching TV) to pursue things that interest you... be it art, dance, DIY, walking, playing, catching up with a friend/family member, researching something of interest, playing an instrument or learning a new skill. What could you do with your new-found time?

Also if you'd like to learn more about Keds fundraiser and how she's getting on with hitting that 200 miles in May for MSTrust you can visit her JustGiving Page.

Kedren Elliott

My name is Kedren, yes Kedren (my name is a bit strange, like myself).

I'm currently finishing my final year's training to become a counsellor and work at North Staffs Mind.
I'm also someone who has struggled with my mental health and lived with friends and family who have also faced challenges.

Through the happiness hub, I really want to help as many people as I can to find ways to live happier. It doesn't have to be complicated, there are little things we can do every day to help with our mental health and feel happier.

So that's a bit about me, but you can find out more by listening to our Hub Podcast!

Liz Parkin

I'm Liz, Kedren's podcasting side-kick, close friend and gin-buddy for over 10 years.

My mental health challenges started in my early teens and continued through a rather traumatic year in 2004.

It was at this point that I discovered Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) which quite literally changed my life - or maybe my perception on life...

In this podcast I will share with you some of the tips and techniques that I learned whilst training for my NLP Practitioner and then Master Practitioner over 14 years ago. NLP got me through some very dark times and given me a bag of mindset tools and strategies to help me keep my mental health, well... healthy!
