Monday Motivation... for men

#MondayMotivation.... for men


Many mental health blogs, campaigns, services etc. are often geared towards *females. However, *men have mental health too, don't they? Of course they do! And it's really important to encourage them to seek support and a listening ear too. Good mental health supports good physical health.

Men have mental health too and it's really important that those identifying as male have just as much opportunity as anyone else to access support, talking therapies and a listening ear (and be understood and validated too).

This is a very powerful picture. We never really know what's going on for someone, even when they appear happy, content, calm or 'sorted'. I would suggest being gentle with yourself too - you are doing the best you can with what you have at this time.

Hope you like this week's #MondayMotivation poster.

Take care,

Don't apologise for ....

Don't apologise for .... We work with so many clients (past and present) who always feel they need to apologise and say sorry. Apologising for saying how they feel; apologising for not meeting other people's expectations; saying sorry for putting their own needs first sometimes; apologising for not having a good day; apologising for taking up space. We don't need to say sorry for any of these things. Each and everyone of us is entitled to express our thoughts and feelings and say what we need and wan t. Each of us us entitled to assert ourselves and live our lives according to our own values, interests and expecations - not someone else's. Each one of us is entitled to and permitted to take up space and be present in this world. You don't need to say sorry for doing any of that.  You matter. You are important. You CAN take up space, because it's your right to do so. Take care, look after yourselves and have a lovely weekend. Best wishes
