You know how it is. Men are not known to be as vocal as women when talking about personal stuff, let alone health matters. 12 – 18 June marks International Men's Health Week (IMHW). The IMHW aims to highlight men's health and advocate changes to men-related health policies and practices. Since its inception in the US in 1994, UK, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Ireland, New Zealand and beyond have joined the talk.

Closer to home, are you, or someone dear to you, having problems raising the topic of health and wellness? Let us delve a little into normalising the talk surrounding men’s wellness beyond the International Men's Health Week. Yahoo Shopping shares where you can get a customised health supplements pack, aromatherapy, cookbooks or mental wellness journals that may help the men in your life regain some balance in their lives.

5 tips to improve mental health

Tip 1: Let’s normalise the chat about wellness

Do the men dear to you have difficulty broaching the subject of health? There’s no shame in admitting that we need some help in mental wellness. If you have been struggling alone, try a different approach. Why not attempt an online art journalling class or work out what’s troubling you with creative prompts and exercises for better mental health.

Tip 2: Eat well: Tools to help you achieve better health

Besides a healthy lifestyle, learn how to nourish your body with the right foods with a cookbook. There’s nothing like taking your health into your own hands. Of course, an air fryer, food processor and instant pot are kitchen essentials. Try out Amazon Fresh's recipes if you need more culinary inspiration.

Tip 5: Work out and get fit and fitter

There's no better way to get healthier than by getting started or maintaining a fitness routine. One of the easiest way to get fitter, without relying on a fitness buddy is with solo fitness activities like running, swimming and cycling. Start out with running which has a low entry barrier. All you need is a good pair of running shoes and comfortable, durable workout outfits and undergarments such as All Citizens performance wear and Alo Yoga activewear. If you are into serious workouts, pair your trainings with a fitness tracker like the new Garmin Instinct 2X Solar or Garmin Instinct 2X Solar – Tactical Edition.
