I'm a regular hiker/ wild camper/ YouTuber / Instagram poster (admittedly recently started).   My story begins with Covid 19 and the beginning of the lockdown. I have a very stressful job in engineering management and never give myself timeout to reset the mind (or exercise the body lol).   Anyway, like many people, I used the initial uncertain times at the beginning of lockdown to get myself out there walking with the family every day. This was the first real "Mind reset" that I have had in years! Within a few days of regular walks I began to feel like a much more chilled out version...

I recently found out that an ex colleague and friend of mine, Milo, took his own life at the age of 27.  Milo was smart, funny, sporty and seemed to live a very healthy and fulfilling life with his best years still ahead of him.  He loved sports, especially lacrosse and was vice captain of his university team. He secured an impressive job at the prestigious Oxford Biomedical and was embarking on his career as a scientist.  From the outside, everything was ticking along very nicely. However nobody knew what he was going through, none of his friends, family or...
