Skate Of Mind Pod

By Skate Of Mind Pod
Roller skating for many looks like fun and reminds older people of when they were kids. But to those of use who rollerskate, it's so much more. Over the years we've seen our community grow and there seems to be a link between being having a creative mind and a passion to be on wheels. The Skate of Mind Pod is a place where we can share, discuss, and explore the connection between creativity, mental well-being, and being on wheels. For more information and to take part in discussions join us on @skateofmindpod via Facebook and Instagram.

005: Amanda's #SkateOfMind - Skating For Charity, Community, Creative Expression, Work Life Balance, and Mindset
Warning: In this episode we discuss "dying by suicide" and "taking ones life"  We're back with another rollercoaster of an episode with #TheToeStopShow regular PodStar, Amanda! This time we talk about Amanda's charity rollerskate challenge in aid of skate charities and VetLife - an independent Charity that provides free and confidential support to anyone in the UK veterinary community who has emotional, health or financial problems. In that section, Amanda talks about losing colleagues who died by taking their own life due to stresses and strains that come with her job in the veterinary community and how her Virtual Inca Trail Skate will hopefully help to raise awareness of the issue. To donate visit http://jgy.cr/VetLifeSk8 We do manage to have quite a few laughs along the way as we also explore work-life balancing, being part of the skate community, using our artistic skills in our skate life, and journaling. If you need help or support for anything we discuss in the episode please contact: Vetlife helpline - on 0303 040 2551 24/7 365 or visit https://www.vetlife.org.uk/how-we-help/vetlife-helpline/ Samaritans - on 116 123 or visit https://www.samaritans.org/how-we-can-help/contact-samaritan/ We'd love to hear your feedback and suggestions so get in touch via @skateofminpod on Instagram and Facebook or visit us on http://flow.page/skateofmindpod Hosted by Craig Jiggy - @craigjiggy (Insta/Facebook/Twitter/Spotify) Produced by Jiggy Creationz - @jiggycreationz  (Insta/Facebook/Twitter/Spotify) Part of TeamJiggy365 CIC #TeamJiggy365 #Rollerskate #RollerSkating #Skating #MentalWellbeing #CreativePeopleOnWheels
