Story

I wanted a challenge which I knew was going to be tough and also done as an individual. Whilst I will may never experience the difficulties a person with mental health issues/ depression deals with, I wanted my challenge to reflect it. The weighted vest is a metaphor for all the weighted pressures a person struggling may be feeling. The extra weight correlates to the extra effort that is needed to do day-to-day life.

I will be wearing a 10kg vest every hour I am awake and out of bed with the exception of washing/dressing and when I am at work (due to health and safety reasons/ infection control). 

Food shopping, gym workouts and even out socialising I will be with vest.

I am documenting my challenge on Instagram and would appreciated a follow and share!  @myweightedweeks
