Men's mental health: How I overcame negative thoughts travelling and skateboarding


This video is a continuation from my first video on mental health.

"Men's mental health, how I handled my dark period through skateboarding and music" .

In this video I am talking about the mental health benefits of travelling . It all started when I decided to get out of the four bleak walls of my flat and go to the skate park. From there I built up the confidence to go to other skate parks and meet more people. By sharing my videos on YouTube, Instagram and the Steemit blogging site I decided I wanted to travel and meet the people I had interacted with in different countries.

With these goals in hand the dark days didn't last for long as I had something to look forward to . In addition to this I can also take the time to look back and smile about the places and experiences I have had.

The music is a song I wrote about 10 years ago when I was in a low period and envisioned myself as a lonely loser drunkenly walking the quiet streets on a loop. I found it quite refreshing to revisit my bleak prediction of my future and compare it with what I actually achieved.
Link to the song can be found here
