According to the Smiling Mind’s survey ‘State of Mind’, around 78 per cent of Australians had poor mental health during the pandemic. New activities done from home, online meetings, and lockdowns contributed to the concerning statistic.

Alex Wadelton is owner of a marketing agency, but has experienced mental health issues since he was a teenager. Along with his business partner Jonny Clow, decided to raise awareness about mental health by asking Australians to… do nothing.

While working out is a great way to tackle mental health, some times is critical to disconnect ourselves from the daily activities to give  ourselves time to refocus.
