Did you know? June is Men’s Health Month! This month, we’d like to take the opportunity to raise awareness to men and their overall health. Below are some tips that men can implement into their daily life to improve their health, as well as prevent illness and disease.
#1: Take care of your health and get routine checkups
Regular checkups and health exams can help detect problems before they start. Going to your doctor on a regular basis gives you an opportunity to discuss any problems with your health that may need to be addressed.
#2: Be aware of your BMI (Body Mass Index)
Your BMI is a good representation between your height and your current weight. Keeping track of your BMI can prevent you from developing conditions linked with excessive weight such as diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, and more.
#3: Eat a well-balanced, healthy diet
Living a healthy lifestyle is key to feeling your best! Eating and maintaining a healthy, well-balanced diet can reduce your risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes. At Age Management Center of New England, we have a healthy lifestyle program to help people of all ages optimize their physical wellness!
#4: Get some exercise
Exercising on a regular basis has many benefits for your body and brain. Along with strengthening the heart and muscles, exercise also has the ability to rev up your energy levels and improve your overall mood.
#5: Learn to manage stress
Over time, stress can have a major impact on your emotional and physical health. It is important to notice early warning signs of stress, such as irritability and tension in your shoulders and neck. Exercise, meditation, and massage are some things you can implement into your daily routine to relieve stress.
It is important that men of all ages stay aware of their health and overall lifestyle habits. If you are looking for extra guidance, contact our office today to see how one of our health professionals can help you live better, and longer!
