Partnering with Surf the Earth for mental health awareness

We are committed to promoting mental health awareness and suicide prevention. We partnered with the non-profit Surf the Earth for a meaningful and personal event at the Big Sky Resort in Montana. It was an honor to share our Pause Breathe Proceed tools with all those who attended. We believe in the power of Pause Breathe Proceed to reduce stress, manage reactivity, overcome self-doubt, and foster resilience. Through collaborations like this, we hope to inspire individuals to prioritize their mental well-being and create a supportive community where everyone feels empowered to seek help and support when needed. Together, we can make a positive difference in the lives of those struggling with mental health.
