How to Keep the Movember Spirit Alive
Remember that Movember wasn’t just about growing a daft moustache – at its heart are efforts to raise awareness and money for men’s physical and mental health causes. With this in mind, here’s how you can keep the spirit of Movember alive all year round:
Testicular cancer is one of the key illnesses for which Movember seeks to raise awareness, so make sure you’re keeping an eye on yourself to spot potential signs early. If you’re a fan of manscaping, check your balls at the same time you’re shaving your pubes. Otherwise, get into the habit of doing it in the shower once a week.
Don’t be Afraid of the Doctor
Following on from our last point, make sure you actually go to the doctor when you need to. Don’t be a typical stubborn guy and put it off.
Whether there’s a lump you want to get checked out or you’re just not feeling yourself, your GP is there to help.
Check in with Your Friends
Talking to your mates, asking how they really are and properly listening to their replies can go a long way towards improving conversations around mental health – something that’s really needed to help end the taboo that can still surround this topic.
Remember that you don’t have to watch the match or go to the pub every time you meet up; sometimes it’s good to just talk – that’s what mates are for.
Make Time for Self-Care
Making time for self-care can help you to safeguard your own mental health. We know that this can be harder to do in the winter when it feels as though it’s constantly cold and dark, which is why we’ve compiled our top winter self-care tips to help you through.
Own Your New Moustache Style
If Movember led to you finding a new moustache style that actually really suits you, keep the spirit of the month alive by really owning your look.
Use your Gillette All Purpose Styler & Beard Trimmer to keep your mo’ looking neat and growing healthily for a look that really makes you feel like the best version of yourself.
