Objective participated in Men’s Health Week 2021 throughout the week of June 14-20th to help raise awareness of men’s health and wellbeing and get conversations started.
International Men’s Health Week is an important reminder to pause and think about what it means be healthy, both physically and mentally. According to the Men’s Health Week resources, we still have a long way to go.
Did you know that the health status of males in most countries, including Australia, is generally poorer than female health?
Did you know that men visit GPs less?
But it doesn’t stop there. More males have accidents and suffer from lifestyle-related health conditions than females at the same age.
That’s why Men’s Health Week was started. The goal is to bring awareness to preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among males.
Objective has been bringing awareness to men's health by sharing information throughout the week as well as celebrating the strengths, contributions and important roles men play in society.
Objective hosted a morning tea for all Sydney and Wollongong staff to enjoy. While enjoying delicious foods and spending time with colleagues, the team were able to share in conversation around men’s health. And don't forget, socialising is an important factor of health too!
The team also had the opportunity to take a few minutes out of their day to relax and enjoy a Halo massage from the 3-minute angels. The massage targeted the neck, shoulders and upper back - the most common areas that hold tension – and helped to alleviate stress, fatigue and soreness.
Friday the 18th of June was Wear Blue Day. Objective encouraged everyone to #ShowUsYourBlue to show solidarity towards men’s health, raise awareness and remind men to stay healthy.
