I was impressed by Prison Break actor Wentworth Miller’s articulate and honest response to The Lad Bible’s attempt to ‘body shame’ him by posting two contrasting pictures of his physique on their website.
The site, which supposedly reflects trending issues and delivers ‘infotainment’ for their target audience of young men aged 16-30, is far from articulate. A quick scan over their pages reveals a puerile, perverse and narrowed-down take on reality, consisting mainly of laddish banter, jackass antics and objectification of women. Oh, speaking of women, it’s hot on sentimentalised affirmations that boys really love their mummies best of all. What The Lad Bible seems to do best of all is credit their male audience with the levels of intelligence we’d normally associate with a single cell amoeba found on the sea floor.

Does Fashion Have a Mental Health Problem? LONDON, United Kingdom — Aristotle said: “No great genius has ever existed without a strain of madness.”
In the fashion industry, the existence of a link between creative genius and mental ill health has long been a matter of debate. Certainly, some of the industry's top designers have struggled with mental health issues. What is indisputable is that fashion professionals across the board — not just creatives — face a unique and uncompromising set of pressures. With its emphasis on constant re-invention and staying ahead of trends, the sector is inherently fast-paced and relentless, making it a stressful environment for workers at all levels. “Anyone working in creative industries, especially fashion, knows only too well the challenging nature of the job,” says Emma Mamo, head of workplace wellbeing at Mind, a mental health charity.
Fashion is also a culture, as much as an industry, blurring the lines between work and private life to a degree not seen in other sectors.

As Part of Movember, Mind Cymru's Lee Cambule talks about why more men should open up about their mental health and the support they can gain.
This month is the annual Movember movement across the world, an opportunity to raise awareness and tackle the issues of men’s health. In recent years, this has grown and expanded from the opportunity to avoid shaving for 30 days (that was always my excuse) to addressing many health topics including suicide prevention among men. This has been a particularly welcome in Wales, where suicide rates are higher for men than in other part of the United Kingdom. Part of the stigma that still exists about mental health for men is that men have greater difficulty talking about their own struggles than women do. My own personal experience as a Mental Health Champion with Time to Change Wales (TTCW) has also evidenced the challenge “us blokes” face. Movember - Men's Health - Mental health and suicide prevention. Tapping the Men’s Wellness Opportunity. NEW YORK, United States — District Vision’s audio series for runners isn’t like most other sports podcasts.
Each episode breaks down the fundamentals of meditation, walking athletes through the principles of Buddhist Vipassana and yoga. Co-founder Max Vallot narrates in a soothing, German-accented voice. “It’s simply a way of seeing the world with more clarity,” he says in the introduction to the five-part series, which has attracted nearly 10,000 listeners since it debuted in November. “I sometimes think of a meditation journey as a marathon of the mind.” Vallot and Tom Daly founded District Vision in 2016 with a line of sports eyewear, but the brand has since evolved to offer “tools for mindful athletes.” A running top from District Vision | Source: Courtesy What sets District Vision apart from similarly-mindful brands is that most of its customers are men. Now the industry is waking up to men as a potential market as well. The company declined to comment.
