Men's Health Week 2020

Men's Health Week 2020.

This week we will be focusing on Men's Health as part of Men's Heath Week.

Take some time this week to focus on your own health and well being. Doing some exercise and physical activity is a great way to improve your overall health.

"Restoring the Balance"

In any ‘normal year’, men’s health issues and needs are numerous and complicated. However, 2020 has been far from ‘normal’ for many people!

All aspects of life on the island of Ireland continue to be shaped by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic - which, it appears, is having a disproportionate health and well being impact upon men. Individuals across the island are trying to re-build their lives, relationships, jobs, finances, emotional resilience, connections, routines … Some people are still living with trauma and bereavement. Others are having to re-focus their priorities and find new ways of living.

Everyone's physical and mental health has been impacted to some degree, and there is a need to find some new form of stable and realistic equilibrium - at least in the short-term. This is why the theme chosen for Men's Health Week 2020 is #RestoringTheBalance. However, to make this happen, EVERYONE needs to do something realistic and practical to ‘Be Part of the Solution’.
