Did you know that women are 100% more likely to visit the doctor’s office for annual exams and preventative services? This number brings more perspective to why Men’s Health Month is important for awareness in the prevention of men-related health conditions.

Men’s Health Month is an annual observance to encourage preventative measures, early detection, and general awareness of preventable conditions which are more prevalent among men and boys such as depression, erectile dysfunction, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, and hair loss, and so on. Let’s look at the actions that men can take to increase their overall health outcomes.

Developing Healthy Habits on Men’s Health Month

Exercise

The right type of, and regular exercise may provide a lot of health benefits for conditions such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, depression, anxiety, cancer, and many others. It is possible to see the positive outcomes of exercise by doing 2.5 hours of weekly moderate aerobic activity such as walking, biking, and swimming. Strength training is also a beneficial exercise for overall health. Using weights or resistance and doing 12-15 reps of each exercise that targets all major muscle groups twice a week is a good variety of exercises to add to your routine. Strength training can include using weights, your own body, resistance bands, resistance paddles in the water, etc. *

Prevention

As we have mentioned, men are twice as likely to neglect their annual checkups with their healthcare providers than women. Making time for regular checkups is an essential step in developing healthy habits. Talking to your doctor about risk factors for health conditions such as testicular and prostate cancer, diabetes, and heart disease may help you understand the measures that can be taken to prevent them in the future or address any problems that may arise earlier on so that you can enjoy a healthy and happy life. **

Nutrition

Having a healthy diet doesn’t have to happen overnight. Try to implement small changes to your diet, starting with grocery shopping. You can start by adding vegetables and fruits to your daily consumption for vitamins, minerals, fiber, and helpful phytochemicals. Try to limit eating foods that are high in calories, sugar, salt, and fat. You can also learn about dietary supplements to support your nutrition, which you can order without a prescription. Dietary supplements can be a powerful tool to help complement your condition and your needs.

Other measures

Make relieving stress a regular habit. Everyone has different ways to blow off steam. It can be getting a massage, reading, taking a walk in the park, riding a motorcycle, or simply watching your favorite show. Do something more than “escapism”. Clear your head and start the next day with higher tolerance of what is to come. Check out our mental health and wellness supplement bundle. We have hand-picked this bundle because it may help you build up your stress tolerance.

Ten to fifteen minutes of sun exposure daily, before 10:00 am or after 4:00 pm may prevent Vitamin D deficiency. It is also important to wear sunscreen between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm to protect your skin from sun exposure, which may lead to skin damage.

Finally, when you experience a symptom, instead of going online to look for temporary solutions -which may not always turn out to be trustworthy-, make an appointment with your doctor and use medications that were prescribed for your unique needs. Take your medications as prescribed by your doctor and ask them what other actions you can take to complement the condition you may have.
