LAZY TIME WITH MATES MIGHT JUST BE THE THING FOR AUSSIE MEN’S SOCIAL WELL-BEING

Australia prides itself on our ‘mateship’ culture, however a recent study commissioned by Bundaberg Rum shows that over three-quarters of modern Aussie men are struggling to find time for their mates.The study revealed that whilst nearly all men (97%) agree making time for their mates is essential, the majority (85%) of Aussie males are struggling to find enough time for much needed ‘man time’ with their friends.

According to the study, men aren’t prioritising friendships as much as they should. Mates are pipped by family (77%), work (67%) and health and fitness (64%), with friendship (52%) coming in fourth place on their list of priorities.

Social demographer Mark McCrindle said “it’s important that everyone makes time for their friends, but in this era of increase busyness – it means our social lives are becoming increasingly disconnected. Lazy time and casual get-togethers spend with mates are now more important than ever”.
