Mens Health Week - MoMents in Time
How true - all those little moments add up to big moments, particularly if the little moments have not been ones that taught you how to deal with what you were feeling, the emotions that went unexpressed and unsupported. They can leave young men feeling vulnerable and unless we have learnt to see that vulnerability as a strength it can result in dangerous or unsociable behaviour that does them no favours whatsoever - as a young person or as an adult. Join me as I interview Dean Quirke a health and wellness educator.
Dean Quirke was my guest to talk about Mens Health Week. He is a health and wellness educator. He was sharing his background and a project to offer young men work experience and tools to address some life skills which may not have been taught during their upbringing. Well worth a listen and check out the link here.
Dean shares...Anger is not a power play and should never be used to make someone scared.
He also gave us a review of Inside Out the new movie all about what goes on inside - all the emotions that run around...there are some gems here which matched what we were saying during our interview perfectly.
The Ultimate Work Experience starts soon so check out the link and get in touch.

These statistics are appalling when you consider this is mans' inhumanity to man that has caused this appalling migration of people. Violence yes human being hurting human beings, costs the global economy 14.3 trillion dollars a year...go figure. Add that figure to the cost of preventable lifestyle illnesses and I think we have a clear indication of what we need to do to invest in change.
What oh what do we need to happen to be prepared to look beyond what happens in our own backyards and say enough is enough?
Still we bicker about whose responsibility it is - a complete them and us way to behave. Everyone is a person and deserves equal respect. Who knows if we will ever need to be supported by another country...who knows.
