Stress can affect you in many ways. It can make it difficult to get to sleep at night, affect your mood and your appetite and it can even lead to physical symptoms, such as spot outbreaks, aches and pains, and coughs and colds. Eventually if unmanaged your stress could lead to a severe mental health problem such as depression or anxiety.
Men and women are completely different when it comes to their health. A woman would have no issues attending a doctor’s appointment if something wasn’t quite right. A man would leave it until a few symptoms occurred or when things got too tough. Men don’t tend to talk about things, especially if it’s something that worries them. But they do have health worries, and they do stress over them. This is why I thought it would be a good time to share some of the most common worries men have about their health. Perhaps it might highlight something for you.
Guys have a tendency to try and bottle everything up a lot of the time. It’s kind of understandable that they do, after all, that’s how we’re trained to be, isn’t it? Men are supposed to be tough, stoic and strong. Men are taught from a very young age that the worst thing that they can do is show any weakness at all, no matter how small. The issue with that is that no human being is capable of being strong all of the time. In fact, constantly bottling things up and trying to be strong is actually pretty dangerous. It can cause problems at work, at home, and it can even have a negative impact on your health. Here are some of the most common things that men tend to bottle up, and why you definitely shouldn’t.
It’s a myth that men don’t have problems with self-esteem. Men are supposed to be confident, loud, brash, “manly”. But there are many men who aren’t so great in this area. They suffer from low self-esteem but are unsure where to turn to do anything about it. It’s not always obvious when someone has a problem with self-esteem. In fact, even people who seem to be confident can actually have deep-seated problems with how they view themselves.
