Burpees for Australia's Mental Health

By Rj Singh Join Me

A bit of "sweat, suffering, and soreness" for our mental health!

Mental illness doesn’t discriminate – it affects 1 in 5 Australians every year with symptoms like depression and anxiety. The impact can be devastating, not only for those living with it, but for those around them.

As someone that has battled with mental health issues and addiction, this is a topic close to my heart.  More recently, with some of my own challenges through old narratives, I took to what I know to be the best remedy, a bit of purposeful suffering through sweat. 

This has led me to become active with raising funds for the Black Dog Institute - to support crucial mental health research and support services that help Australians impacted by mental illness and suicide.

In early 2024, I will be looking to do 11,000 Burpees in 24 hours. This will set a new world record. Burpees do suck, and nobody likes them, but they are accessible to most, and have the ability to get our heart and blood pumping, sweat pouring, and are our endorphins going. The complete recipe for a positive mood shift!

Our ambitious goal is to raise $1M to help create impact in support of Australia's mental health!

Truly grateful for anything that you can contribute.

On a random look at LinkedIn I came across your post. I’m an advocate of habits for making changes and reaching goals. Your burpees challenge is both an example and inspiring. Enjoy the day you create.
