What if your moods and emotions were just signposts to how to live a fuller life? Andy Gibson has made it his job to help us prioritise our mental health as much as our physical wellbeing, so we can lead rich and creative lives.
Andy talks about his own journey to set up Mindapples, a mental health charity and training organisations. And we have a fabulous discussion about mood and emotions. Andy explains the difference between them, and how by understanding the difference, we can choose how to manage them.
If you have days when creativity just isn’t happening, then Andy has some great advice for you.
