"Hi Kate and the DediKate team,
Thank you for another fabulous challenge with such an important focus!
My Workout for Mental Health journey has been rumbling along for awhile really, even before you first introduced the up coming challenge. I was struggling with all things and it really got me thinking about my mental health, which I've been very fortunate with in the past.
I realised that I wasn't in a good place, I was incredibly burnt out at work, like a lot of people working in health care at the moment (I'm a Respiratory Physio at Christchurch Hospital), I was tired all the time, had no motivation, wasn't exercising at all or doing anything really and was battling with long Covid (a very mild case though thank goodness).
All the things you and your team were talking about were ringing so true to me, I had lost my groove and lost myself as well.
