Several months ago while I was on my Vipassana meditation retreat, I was captivated by the idea that change is a constant. By unplugging for ten days and increasing my sense of awareness, it became very apparent that objects around us and within us, even at the tiniest levels, are always in a state of flux. Despite the fleeting nature of everything, we as humans tend to cling to objects, people, places, memories, emotional states, etc.. We crave permanence even though impermanence stares us in the face. When I returned home, I became obsessed with this question: if everything is constantly changing then why is it so hard for most people to change old habits and develop new habits?Read More
Everyone struggles with something. For me, it was anxiety, addiction and imposter syndrome. For a long time, I was afraid to seek help because I was worried about what others would think of me and how they'd react since I was extremely functional in all facets of my life. I ultimately healed myself and transformed my life over several years through mediation, nutrition, radical candor, sleep, exercise and positivity. I also turned to a variety of support communities which were a huge source of strength, meaningful relationships and perspective. I credit much of my transformation to these groups. There's no way I could have improved my mental health all by myself.
That's why I was excited to meet Tyler Faux and Dan Blackman of Huddle. They shared their plans to build a video-based peer-to-peer support network and change how the world communicates about mental health issues. They explained their product would have public and private channels for people to engage about the things in life they are dealing with. They also explained, that Huddle will allow people to be anonymous or themselves so they can engage however they're most comfortable. In that moment, I wished I had access to this product many years ago when I struggling but wanted help. I was also captivated by their mission of breaking down conventional perspectives of how people are supposed to get help by creating a community of real people, talking about real things, supporting one another.Read More
