Hannah has lived with mental health problems since she was a child, spending occasional stints in psychiatric hospitals starting in her teens. Because of her depression, she has often felt demotivated and low, with exercise being the last thing she’d like to do. Happily, Hayz encouraged her to move more, even if just a little, and get out of the house. What started as going on short walks has gradually progressed to a range of activities that Hannah enjoys doing and helps manage her conditions.
How Hannah Gets Moving
Hannah lives near a park, which she enjoys getting out for a walk in – helping to clear her head and improve her mood that day. Hannah occasionally has to pause and sit for a rest when she's out, but with a little bit of support and encouragement she’s able to get back up when she’s ready and go a little further. She also enjoys playing games of tennis on the public courts, which is always fun, even if sometimes exhausting!
