How to Celebrate Men’s Health Month
June is men’s health month, a nationally recognized holiday designed to raise awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among males. Here we share tips on how to make your health a priority this month to celebrate.
Get a Health Screening.
Men, here’s the sign you’ve been waiting for to schedule that doctor’s appointment. There’s no better time than now to see a health professional. Regular health screenings give you peace of mind because they can detect signs of disease early, allowing you to stop health problems in their tracks.
Use this month as a time to become more knowledgeable about your body — including the amount of exercise you should be doing or what someone your age should be consuming. Learn about preventative tips for disease and other precautions you can take to ensure you live a long, prosperous life.
Share Your Knowledge.
Now that you’ve educated yourself, share what you’ve learned. When you share health information and surprising statistics with your friends and family it may encourage them to take charge of their bodies. Even if you help one person schedule their yearly health screening or assist them in shopping for recommended daily supplements, small victories are a great way to celebrate men’s health month!
Develop an Exercise Routine.
Many major health risks that men face can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle. Don’t wait until the new year to start working out. Head to the gym and challenge yourself to do the best you can to live your healthiest life.
Improve Your Diet.
The foods we consume play a huge role in our overall health. This month, work to improve the quality of your diet by giving yourself nutritious foods that fuels your body. If you already have a healthy regimen, think of one small thing you can do to improve it a little more such as consuming more water or eating an extra fruit or vegetable a day.
