S04E13 - Lex D Reilly (Compelled) pt1

In this episode Andy speaks with with Lex D Reilly, Army veteran (6RAR), survival expert, wellness coach and founder of "Compelled" as an international wilderness guide.⁠

Lex share's his military career and experiences whilst deployed in Afghanistan with 6RAR and openly shares his struggles reconnecting to family, friends and loved ones upon return to Australia.⁠

We take a dive into his mindset and daily life when he was suffering most (internally and externally), the turning point and curiosity that led him to embark on his wellness journey, self-care and management of his PTSD.⁠

Rounding off the episode with his learning and growth and touching on how connecting with nature and the lessons it teaches has led to the formation of "Compelled" and what he's doing now to contribute back to the community.⁠
