Show us your steak

Show us your steak  During the week I saw a post from a colleague which pretty much sums up Mens Mental Health.  Men aren’t very good about speaking out about their problems and tend to keep it all within their heads.  I see a lot of people at work whether colleagues or patients that struggle with dealing with mental health problems.

I wrote on a previous post how I believe that getting outdoors is a great way to deal with mental health problems.  Mental health issues aren’t a physical injury although they can have physical signs and keeping these problems in a box will only make them worse.

As mentioned in the previous post so many people that suffer with mental health problems end up lethargic and staying within four walls (in a box).

So again the word box comes up problems are boxed up in our heads and we are boxed up within four walls.

Its time to open up the box.

My Work Boots.

For the last 3 and a half years I have worn them for every shift and they have seen everything I have seen and worse…

They’ve trod in vomit and urine, dog poo, horse poo, cow poo and human poo…

Trod in the blood of the dead, the dying and the seriously injured….

Protected me from the broken glass, oil and jagged metal of shattered vehicles…

They’ve been with me when I’ve saved lives and when I’ve had to let people go…sometimes for the greater good of others that needed saving…

Seen the very best of humanity, but they’ve also seen the very worst…

They’ve seen the moments of life-changing sadness of those left behind; wives & husbands, sons & daughters, mothers & fathers….some of them to children…

If my boots could talk, they could tell stories that would make your toes curl…

If they had a conscience, you would sometimes hear them cry at night trying to outrun the sadness they have seen…

Boots don’t talk…..but sometimes those who wear them should.

It’s okay not to be okay. #loveyourboots #suicideawareness #itsoknottobeok 

I’M ALWAYS HERE FOR AND FRIENDS OR COLLEAGUES

Show us your steak

Following on from a post from a  very entertaining youtuber that I follow (Haze Outdoors). He posted a video that was such a great idea to raise awareness that I jumped on the band wagon and created a video to show us your steak

In his video he is hoping to start a viral trend of men posting videos online of them cooking steak which will help raise awareness of Mens mental health.

So to all that read get making you videos post to youtube / instagram and tag with #showusyoursteak then tag three people to do the same.
