The Growing Popularity of
Self-Care for Men

AIHM Fellow, Gregory Scott Brown, M.D., is a resident in general psychiatry at the University of Texas Dell Medical School and a regular contributor for Psychology Today. He is a practicing yogi and passionate about self-care and mindfulness. In his most recent article, he shared findings from a large survey of more than 1,000 men over the age of 18. 
They were asked about perceptions of self-care and perceived barriers to self-care. Almost 60 percent of the men who were surveyed acknowledged participating in more self-care practices over the past five years. Increased energy and clearer thinking were some of the primary benefits reported.  These results lend to the importance of self-care when it comes not only to physical health but mental well-being as well.
And perhaps when working with male patients, if we are highlighting the potential for more energy and razor-sharp cognitive skills, we will see these numbers to continue to grow.  Gregory "believes that the wellness industry has a profound impact on mental health care, and in many ways is inviting people to understand that it is okay to pursue practices that benefit physical and mental well-being."
