Welcome – February 2021

There’s no escaping that 2020 was a year of trials and tribulations, of challenges, of uncertainty and of some of the toughest times people have faced.

And as we move into the second month of 2021, some of this uncertainty remains – at the time of writing, the country has moved into a third national lockdown as a new Covid variant rages and cases continue to rise, and rise fast. But we must not forget we now have three vaccines approved and we also know more about this virus and how to combat it.

But while the virus itself poses threat to our immediate health, we must also be aware of the long-term effect of the pandemic; isolation and loneliness, poverty, depression and anxiety, and growing waistlines are all impacts that will be felt for some time to come. And if we look in more detail at the mental health aspect, men, it seems, are not faring so well. The mental health charity, Mind, has revealed in new research into male mental health that, while some progress has been made, men feel worried or low more regularly than 10 years ago and are consequently twice as likely to feel suicidal. While it found that men generally feel more able to seek help and open up about their mental health than a decade ago, those with current worries are still relying on coping mechanisms such as drinking alcohol alone (13 per cent versus nine per cent).

And so, men’s health takes the focus of this issue of Natural Lifestyle, where Esther Mills- Roberts casts her eye over the current health concerns of the male population and offers a holistic health plan for men. You can read more on page 16. Also in this issue, we look to the plant world to help support our health and wellbeing with expert advice on the best herbs for you. As well as that, we have advice on why you need vitamin K, some tasty gluten-free recipes and a great selection of giveaways. As each month goes on, we hope that the world as we know it becomes a healthier and happier place, one in which we can live free of restrictions, where we can see friends and family, and where our health isn’t at risk. In the meantime, we hope our readers remain in good health.
