Image default

Even though times are moving on and understanding is growing, it is still a really common issue amongst males of all ages when it comes to mental and physical health, as most men really don’t understand that when their body is telling them to do something, they really should be acting on it and doing the right thing.

When it comes to reaching out and getting the right advice and help, times have changed to ensure more people do this but there is still a massive gap when it comes to men actually speaking to people and getting advice and help, and this really does need to change, as if you need to speak to someone then you really should.

If you are not feeling right or your mood is low or frequently changing, never feel you should not see a GP or specialist, as they can help you and find out what is wrong and then put a plan in place to fix it.

If you are not feeling the best at the moment or your mood is a little low, here are five things you can think about trying to get yourself back on track.


All the studies in the world all point to the fact that regular exercise can massively help your mental health and of course your physical health, so walking, running or getting yourself down the Gym a couple of times a week really has so many benefits for your mind and your body. If you are struggling for time then try to do simple things, like parking further away from work, or making sure that every weekend you get a long walk in, as if you can make the time to get exercise on a regular basis then you will feel so much better for it, guaranteed.


Whether you want to sit back and watch TV or get your head deep into a really good book or puzzle, relaxation is something your body needs to wind down, mend and repair, as if you keep trying to work hard all the time then you will start to get tired, which in turn can make you feel ill and you can become really run down and feel so low.

There are many things you can do to aid your relaxation, maybe some really soothing music on your Spotify playlist or melting some wax melts (from suppliers like A Melt In Time) or fragrance oils in the background, these things can really help you relax and allow your body just a little bit of time to feel good again and get your mind back onto a really sound footing.

Vitamins And Supplements

Sometimes your body is just lacking certain vitamins that enhance your mood or wellbeing, which is why it can be a good idea to look for something to help increase your vitamin levels, and you can find a really good selection at Stronger Bones, who specialise in supplements that are aimed at helping your body with natural supplements that can help boost Vitamin D, Vitamin C and other things your body may need.

It is also worth speaking to your GP if you are really feeling low or always tired, as they can arrange to take blood tests and also point you in the right direction for stronger medication should they feel you could really use it.

Get A Hobby

Nothing beats doing something you really enjoy and if you can surround yourself with other like minded individuals then you can not only enjoy your hobby but socialize as well, two things that really can help to give you a boost mentally.

An active hobby, whether that is something sporting or something mentally intriguing can really help how you feel, as when you enjoy doing something and it becomes something you do often, you start to have something to focus on and really start to look forward to and this really is crucial for mental health. And as we say, if you can meet more friends in an area you really enjoy being in, this is also amazing for your mental health as well.

Short Break Or Holiday

We understand that both time and money can be really tight for so many people at the moment, but by booking a short break or a longer holiday can really help your mood, as it not only gives you something to look forward to and focus on, but once you are on holiday it allows your body and mind the right kind of time to relax and not think about the day to day pressures that may come from work and general life.

Some people split their holidays into many short breaks and others just take a couple or one long holiday a year, but no matter what works for you, getting a break every so often really will be just what you need.
