One of the key issues for blokes and our mental health is the belief that we must be a strong, stoic, provider who doesn’t show emotions. The result is that many blokes bottle up these emotions or numb them with alcohol, drugs or work. We pretend we’re fine when really, we’re not.
Good mental health practices include regular physical activity, a good diet, supportive relationships, maybe some meditation or mindfulness, and of course making the time to have some fun doing the stuff you love.
Maintaining positive mental health can result in better relationships, increased productivity and improved health.
