LISTEN: Corey Hirsch – Mental Health Advocate, former NHL goalie

Published

After 22 years in the media world of television and radio, from Brandon, Manitoba to Red Deer, Alberta over to Regina, Saskatchewan and settling in Edmonton, Alberta, I found myself on the side of the desk with a pink slip in my hand, unexpectedly.

​Over the next few weeks and with my mind racing to a million thoughts, I decided to embark on the journey of podcasting. My broadcasting background has mainly been in sports, and it will still be a big part of my podcasting, but I will be focusing on other subjects as well, from sports to cannabis education and more.

This episode:  Corey Hirsch – click below to listen – great stories about his days playing against greats like Lemieux and Gretzky. And, some serious chat about mental health.

 

Corey Hirsch played in the NHL and the Olympic games, he’s now a Canucks radio analyst, but more importantly he’s a mental health advocate. Along with talking about his career we discussed how his teammates reacted to his sickness. We also discussed how to approach mental health with your kids, bullying and what stopped him from committing suicide? It’s an open and honest conversation about a very important topic. Sick Not Weak – Enjoy!

We’re heavy on sports chatter but will definitely be branching out into movies, music, pop culture and almost anything else. There will be close to zero talk on religion or politics, but pretty much anything goes. 

Join us every Tuesday!!

Canadian Thanksgiving is over once again: We got stuffed on Turkey, had some laughs, connected with family and friends, and said our blessings.
Whether you’ve just had your Thanksgiving, or looking forward to it – What is your best part?
For me, it’s going around the table and taking turns saying what we have to be thankful for.
I look forward to this every year, but it always makes me sad that so many never continue the practice of gratitude afterwards.
Did you know that the simple act of daily gratitude significantly improves our lives? It’s true. Studies have shown that people who express thanks regularly have a higher health rate, they sleep better, they are more confident, happier and more resilient.
And for those of us with businesses, the simple act of regularly showing gratitude to your staff and customers decreases employee turner, improves customer loyalty, improves productivity and helps to form stronger relationships. Hmmm. That’s a HUGE ROI for ZERO investment!
That is why I am inviting you to the ‘QUEST FOR GRATITUDE‘ Challenge.
This 5 day FREE ‘Scavenger Hunt’ Gratitude Challenge will take place on Facebook starting October 28th.
You will be given fun ‘quests’ every day to challenge yourself with and post within the Facebook Group – all of which will produce ‘points’ for chances to win some pretty terrific prizes!
By the end of the week, you will be more enlightened and will have a solid foundation to start building your new new habit of appreciation and gratitude.
Join today and let’s have some FUN!
