Moustaches and Movember

Have you heard of Movember?

Each November, men in North America grow stupid moustaches as a fun way to raise awareness for 3 serious men’s health issues:

  1. Prostate Cancer
  2. Testicular Cancer
  3. Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

I work with a bunch of former Club Penguin staff and we’re hosting a contest to raise awareness for Movember.

You can enter if you’d like, the contest is for ages 13 and up.

The prizes are:

  1. $100 Amazon gift card and a 6-month WTFast subscription
  2. $50 Amazon gift card and a 6-month WTFast subscription
  3. A 6-month WTFast subscription

They’re also giving 10% of all 6-month and 12-month subscription purchases to the Movember charity.

Back in the day at Club Penguin, a bunch of the team would participate in Movember, including the ladies! I still laugh when I think of my fiance’s Tom Selleck look.

November wasn’t just about ninjas and icebergs, it was also about moustaches. I like to think of November as “Moustache Month” (mostly cuz I like alliteration and it sounds fun)

Mental health is probably one of the most important aspects of anyone’s health. I know that for me, I’ve learned how important mental health is in my own life.

Having fun and doing things like growing silly moustaches is a way to help the mind focus on positive things, which is a key to a healthy mind!

Did you know that anxiety (worrying about the future) can actually make pain feel more painful? I learned that one last year when I pulled my back out and ended up in the hospital for a week. I didn’t know that my mental health would have any impact on my physical health, but guess what? It does!

Anyways, I’m going to be participating in the moustache-growing and exercise goals this November. If you see someone wearing a silly moustache this month, don’t be surprised. Instead, cheer them on!

Until next time… Moustache on!
