Rhys and Danielle met 10 years ago during the times of late summer nights and dance floors and he'd always been known as a fit, strong, healthy, guy so when he almost died during an overseas adventure in London - it was a shock to say the least.
Rhys would regularly push his body to the limits, instead of dealing with his stress or emotions, trying to distract his mind with extreme exercise or drinks with his friends. When he suffered 4 cardiac arrests before the age of 30 Rhys battled with the mental and physical challenges that come with a cardiac disease and was forced to make some big changes.
Rhys opens up and gets real about:
- The chance encounter that saved his life
- Finding purpose and passion in our struggles
- Tools and coping mechanisms to deal with every day stresses
- What facing death has taught him about life
- How to live in a more healthy and balanced way
- The benefits of mindfulness
- Dealing with negative thoughts and emotions instead of running from them
