Back to the wild

In the hustle and bustle of life, men often find themselves pulled in countless directions. Between work, family, and everything else, it’s easy to feel like we’re losing touch with who we really are.

Becoming a Strong Ally: Navigating Consent and the #MeToo Movement

As men, it’s crucial to recognize our role in supporting and uplifting women. As we navigate the significance of the #MeToo Movement this April, it’s essential to dive into the topic of consent in our relationships from a male perspective. Consent serves as the cornerstone of mutual respect and agreement in any interaction, so it’s important to understand and actively promote consent in all aspects of our lives.

Fear: The stuff of dreams

I had a bad dream the other night that there was an albino scorpion in my bedroom. It was feasting on a mass of spiders that were trying to overtake the bed and had started to make a nest out of my silk ties.

Combatting trauma

A traumatic event is a violation so severe that it can permanently alter how we respond to stress. Humans are vulnerable, and some of us will inevitably experience a terrifying situation that shatters our sense of safety.

What’s keeping you up at night?

Insomnia is a sleep disorder that plagues up to 40% of people every year, and the leading cause is the state of our mental wellbeing. Essentially, insomnia is our mind’s retribution for suppressing the difficult feelings we experience during the day.

How to take advantage of change

Humans are creatures of habit. We like to know what’s happening, expect to control the outcome, and plan our lives accordingly. So when an atypical event disturbs the world order, we are largely unprepared to manage in times of uncertainty and deal with life-altering chaos.

Man’s tendency to avoid conflict

Some of us deny our anger to avoid upsetting or offending others. And while deception is sometimes necessary to avoid getting into an argument, when it becomes a refusal to admit our feelings at the expense of someone else, it becomes passive aggressive behaviour.

Mood Disorders are treatable

A mood is a temporary feeling. A mood disorder is when moods of sadness or joy get stuck, last for long periods, don’t appropriately match your circumstances, and impede your ability to function. Specifically, “mood disorder” is a catch-all category to describe types of depression and bipolar disorders that affect how you think about yourself, others, and life in general.
