Many people are breaking down than ever, both mentally and physically. Now is the time to start doing things which will boost your well-being and men enhancement.

It is obvious we need help. Yet we approach it with caution when it comes to our well being.Wellness is, after all, a feminine thing, right? This is not so. The truth is this: these are men who stand to benefit from wellness more.
But let’s make it abundantly clear before we go any further.
We’re not talking about bathing here in the forest. We won’t venture holistic vacations,nor relaxation exercises, but instead deliver digestible bits of wisdom,real-world stories and tips to make 2019 the best year yet – inside and outside. Since, honestly, life has much more to offer than bulging biceps.
We want to break the myth about the health of people.
We want to prove that Wellness is more than face masks and scented candles.
We want to open the debatearound issues liketesticular self-exams and erectile health problems.
We want to help guys deal with everyday life stresses, to balance a career and a family
We want to reduce stress levels – an epidemic sweeping across the UK – improve quality of life, address issues of body confidence, eat disorders and make more men happier. And over the next few months, we will continue to shout about it.
The cliché of ‘ new year new me, ‘stressful as it may be, provides an apt stepping stone for beginning healthier habits. Our January 2019 issue, now out, documents the story of how Lewis Hammond, 43, has transformed his health through a complete overhaul of his approach to fitness. He reduced his cholesterol (it was on the verge of being life-threatening at the beginning), exploded body fat and became more energized than he ever expected when feigning injury.
The same can be said for you, because like Lewis, you don’t need to squirm four times a week under a barbell to feel fitter.Then indulge in a routine that works for you. We’ll be sharing the best deals, workouts and tips with you over the coming days and weeks to help you achieve your goals, no matter what age you are.
A slimmer waistline and bigger arms are not the main benefits of fitness self care
Lower cholesterol, higher energy levels and steadier moods are just a few promises that can only make a healthier lifestyle. Your sex life will likewise benefit and your mental strength can change.
Again, this doesn’t mean that you have to resign yourself to a spartan diet outside your exercise routine, as with your fitness.We want you to be more aware of how you’re impacting your nutrition. We’re going to talk to nutritionists, psychologists, physicians and scientists to regain your well being through food, without giving up the things you enjoy.
Your Mental Strength
As you will know by now, Mental Health is a relevant topic for Men’s Health – with our writers and editors (some speaking from very personal points of view) committed to communicating and creating content that can be directly applied.
More than 15,000 men’s health readers shared their experiences with mental health in 2017 and we found that 70 per cent would not describe themselves as “living with high levels of positive mental health” and another 69 per cent had never considered talking to a professional when it came to seeking help with mental health problems.
It is becoming abundantly clear from blue-collar workers to tradesmen that workplaces are now shining a greater light on the workplace’s wellness and mental health. We don’t even talk about dotting Japanese peace lilies around the office or doing yoga at a building site.
We want to help you make real change that will make your workplace a more secure and rounded place to spend more than 40 hours a week. It’s time for you to get your work done.
