Let’s Start A Conversation!

Women's Day, Mother's Day, and Father’s Day, observed by many of us, are more than just occasions of celebration. They are a reflection of our society. We understand how these figures of human relationship strengthen our community, how they contribute to the progress of interpersonal connection.

One such aspect of human connection is the bond an individual shares with himself. International Men's Day (IMD), celebrated on 19th November, serves as a platform to acknowledge the experience and achievements of adolescents, teens, single men of all ages.

Every year, IMD also features present-day issues that are a part of men’s lives. It is not to compete with popular conventional ideas of commemorative days, but acknowledge peoples' voices. Another crucial aspect is to erase negative images of masculinity, stigma on mental health and promote gender equality.

This year the theme of International Men's Day 2020 is “Better Health for Men and Boys” intending to make effective improvements to the health and wellbeing of men in modern society.

Better Health for Men and Boys

This year the focus is on men’s social, emotional, physical, and even spiritual state in line with changing social circumstances. With the world affected by the pandemic, we are still feeling its effects. We are emphasizing the fact of safety and social distance for everyone. In these times, health and well-being is very important, especially mental and emotional health plays a huge role, and it should be taken care of.

Take care of Mental and Physical health

Analyze yourself - There can be the times you spend with your friends or family, but there should constantly be a time for yourself. Sit down and examine where you are and what you need to be. There will not be a better time than spending time with yourself available to you to think about the future and set things right. Give yourself some space when you need it; use the time to prepare a meal, read a book, play, or whatever it is you like to do when you think you need time to switch off. This is the first step for self-care.

Face Stress and be surrounded by good people. Face stress calmly. The remedy for this is to keep your mind and body at peace, to do that, you should be on track with the daily routine of meditation and relaxation practices. Coming to Physical Health, there should be no compromise in your health and fitness. Hit the gym, or if you want to get out of your home and receive some fresh air, you can go out for a walk or run in your area. There is always space in your home to exercise, do yoga, and meditate, and the internet provides you with all this.
