Movember is here. Is your Moustache ready ?

 

movember_logo_2-What is ‘Movember’?

A linguistic blend of “Moustache” and “November”, it refers to the campaign launched in 2004 in Australia inviting men from all over the world to grow facial hair (preferably their moustache) during the month of November to raise awareness about men health and the prevention of prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and depression.

Movember is now a global movement, running campaigns in Canada, USA, New Zealand, Spain, South Africa, Finland and Spain.

Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides annual check-ups, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of family history of cancer and to adopt a healthier lifestyle.

How does it work?

It is very simple: you start with a clean-shaven face on November 1 and you no longer shave until the end of the month. The idea is to generate awareness and educate the masses in a new and fun, avatar while working towards a cause.

This year, its more about the cause, what it represents and there are various ways through which the awareness can further be spread and gain more support, for instance, practicing yoga offers a host of benefits to lead a healthy lifestyle and have a peaceful mind. It is available to one and all anytime, anywhere! So gentlemen, support the cause for men’s health, invest in a yoga practice and stay happy.

Ladies, you too are welcomed to come along with your better halves and participate in this cause.

It was a chance visit to the doctor, which revealed everything was not right with his health. “Your blood pressure is little raised,” the doctor told 26-year-old Manav Mitra, who had accompanied his younger brother for a routine checkup at his GP’s clinic. Little did he know that this casual visit was soon going to have a huge impact on his lifestyle.

“My elevated reading came as a shock. I do not smoke. I do not have a family history. So, I was least expecting the 150/95mm Hg blood pressure reading,” shares the IT professional. When he tried to look for the possible reasons, he realised where he went wrong. Young and ambitious, Mitra heavily depended on takeaways (fast food) due to his hectic work schedule and late nights.
