In our modern society, discussion around men’s health often focus on physical wellbeing, leaving mental health in the shadows. However, it’s crucial to recognise that mental health is just as important as physical health for leading a fulfilling and balanced life. In this blog post, we’ll look into the significance of men’s mental health, common challenges they face, and practical strategies to promote mental wellbeing.
Understanding the Stigma
Unfortunately, there still exists a pervasive stigma surrounding men’s mental health. Society often perpetuates the notion that men should be strong, stoic, unemotional, and resilient in the face of adversity. This expectation can lead to reluctance to seek help or discuss their feelings openly. It’s essential to break down these barriers and create a safe space for men to acknowledge and address their mental health.

Strategies for Promoting Men’s Mental Health
Prioritising men’s mental health is an important step towards achieving holistic wellbeing. By breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health, understanding the common challenges men face, and promoting healthy coping strategies, we can create a supportive environment where men feel empowered to take charge of their mental wellbeing. Remember, it’s not a sign of weakness to seek help; it’s a sign of strength and self-awareness. Together, we can foster a culture of mental health awareness and support.

Our mental wellbeing is described as mental state - This is, how we are feeling and how well we can cope with day to day life. Our mental health is dynamic, it changes from moment to moment, day to day, or week to week and so on and so forth. Whilst our mental health is needed to be dealt by a trained professional, there are many things you can DO to promote your mental wellbeing. We often fail to remember that food has a major role in the development of our mental wellbeing.
Amazing countryside and ancient history
So often, when people asked me where I am from, (apart from Indonesia), I answered "I'm from Exeter", and instantly I got this puzzled face. I then said again, slowly in case they misunderstood my pronunciation "Exeter". Still puzzled.
Then I said "It's in Devon, South West of England, near Cornwall" (and of course it is nowhere near Conrwall!), then some of them would say "ahhh" still sounded unsure where it is, or some of them would say " oh ya, I know - it's near Plymouth right" - wrong! but it's closer than Cornwall. Only few of them know where Exeter is, mostly people had been studied at its famous University, University of Exeter.
If you haven't been to Exeter, or if you are still wondering where you would spend a nice and cosy weekend, with the flavour of country side yet still within a city vibe, I recommend you come and visit Exeter.
