Many people are surviving in their day-to-day lives rather than thriving. To help people who are struggling to thrive, including in the workplace we are developing this ‘Wildman’s Wisdom Section of the section.
Stuart ‘The Wildman’ Mabbutt uses his varied work out in nature and a sensory connection with nature to try and sustain his own health including mental health. ‘The Wildmans Wisdom’ is an outlet to explore the many and varied insights he and we get whilst working out in nature. Often philosophical in tone, they will explore and challenge some of the serious and not so serious questions we all can face regarding mental health, morally and environmentally. In fact, few subjects will be off limits if they are felt worthy of exploration.
