Mike Martin is an author and sportsman who has a lifelong struggle with his mental health. For years, it controlled him and had a negative impact on his life. Prior to undertaking his healing journey, He hid the effects of his mental health under many different masks.
In early 2020 life handed him a perfect storm of hurdles. These hurdles would open the door to change his life forever. While facing his second divorce and living in his truck, Mike got curious about why the patterns of his life were always leading him back to square one. He realized only he could build a shelter to get out of the rain of life. An avid outdoorsman, it was only fitting for him to turn the wilderness for help.
Through his adventurers he discovered a space where he could utilize the philosophies of the stoics and backwoods to heal the traumas that triggered the depression, anxiety, and other mental health barriers that he faced. He continues to use these principles today. During this outdoor healing journey Project Mindfully Outdoors was born. With so much wisdom gained along his voyage, he wanted to use this knowledge to help inspire others that face the same challenges.
