    One for the boys!

    “I was trying to find a decent short list of self care tips specifically for men to post today but failed dismally, which says a lot about attitudes towards men’s mental health, I think. Finally, I came across this fantastic article which ends with ‘One day wellness may cease to be a gendered issue. In the meantime, we need to get more men actively taking care of themselves.’ Couldn’t say it better myself 😉. Oh, and it has a short list of self care tips too! Paula x“

    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    Talking to yourself with kindness matters. If you’re struggling to think of nice things to say, perhaps ask those people in your life who love you to tell you what they love about you. Then repeat it back to yourself. You may not believe it at first but repetition might just change your perspective.

    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    I am not the world’s best cook and do not enjoy it so, when I’m in a bad place, eating healthily is the last thing on my mind. But some of these tips are doable, even for me, so I’ll be keeping this article to hand.

    I love that!
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)
