The Man Sprouts Man-ifesto Episode Five

Listen to the podcast here:

Welcome to episode 5 of the man sprouts podcast. 

In this episode I introduce the new format for the Man sprouts Podcast - A segment style show.  it's longer (an hour long) so more something to play in the background whilst on the go. 

In this week's show, I explore the question of cynicism in conversations between men and start to explore how we can reclaim our man sprouts - redefine who we are on our own individual terms.  I also feature a great interview with Paul McGee, the SUMO Guy, in which we explore 'How not to worry.'  Paul is a speaker and author of 10+plus books and I particularly love his books - 'SUMO' and 'How Not to Worry.' So, dive in and enjoy.  Show notes below as well as an opportunity to connect with me and give feedback, subscribe to the show and join the 'The Man Sprouts Movement.'

The Interview:

As a word of advice for any one experiencing their own sense of desperation, loss or crisis, please, don't endure it alone.  Seek help.  From family, trusted friends and professionals.  Your own Doctor or GP is a great place to start.  Or there are great services provided by organisations such as the Samaritans.  For further advice on professional support and advice check out the NHS resources.  

This podcast series is intended to encourage reflection on your own wellbeing and mental health.  It seeks to encourage you to speak up and get help where needed and take hope that you things can be better.  It is not intended as therapy or a replacement for professional help and advice.
