We talk about this as it is National Men’s Health week but obviously we can’t all be together for this. Mental Health is so important and this time its even more important.
Each year many men lose their life due to suicide, cancer and other lifestyle factors. This year the unemployment loss is huge. It’s reported that 850000 people or more have lost their jobs.
But there are ways in checking how they are feeling such as how are things going at home for you? How are you feeling? We can do this on Facebook and Twitter and We Chat.
We should explore some coping strategies that don’t involve wine and alcohol but talking. This week I have been thinking about and talking to a dear friend of mine. This friend of mine is bored at home and still goes out for a jog so we’d been thinking of ways to entertain him. One of the ways was to get him to post a story on Instagram about how he is feeling. In these past few months at home we all been posting stories about how we’re feeling and what we’re doing.
And then there is the #blacklivesmatter thingy which might have touched a lot of people.
Exercise plays a major role in alleviating depression symptoms. This week we did tons of exercise and it was fun. My friend who is bored at home doesn’t do much exercise. He wishes that he can go to the city heaps. Even in lockdown he always wanted to go out.
