Listen to Andrew on a Mindfulness Podcast
Anyone interested in hearing more about some of my passions for supporting Dad's or anyone suffering from unintentional behaviours and overwhelm, should check out the podcast I did with local show Resilient Father Podcast.
With the growing impact of mindfulness studies and information on mental health, there are endless podcasts, books, and sites to engage with. If you require some personalized resources please connect with Andrew. However, here are some more practical sites you can use for supporting new behaviours, finding meditations, or self-care recordings!
