Taking care of your mental health is just as important as taking care of your physical health. Men, like women, have a lot of responsibilities in life. Sometimes, men feel pressure to be the ones who support their families. This can make them feel stressed and worried about work and money. Also, men often feel like they have to be tough and keep their feelings to themselves, which can be hard. Many men also feel like they have to keep their families safe all the time, even if it means not showing how they really feel.

We give you some tips dedicated to men, but they also applies to people of any age or any gender:

  • Talk about how you feel – It’s okay to share your feelings with close friends, family, or a professional if you need to.
  • Do things that help you relax – Take time to do things you enjoy, like going for a walk, reading, painting, or listening to music. This can help you feel less stressed and happier.
  • Stay connected with others – Spending time with friends, family, and people you care about is important for your mental health.
  • Take care of yourself – Eat healthily, exercise, and get enough sleep. Taking care of yourself can help you feel better.
  • Learn to say no – It’s okay to say no to things if you’re too busy or if it’s not good for you.
  • Get help if you need it – If you’re feeling very sad, stressed or overwhelmed, it’s okay to ask for help from a doctor or therapist.
