June is National Men's Health Month
With Father’s Day approaching, this is the perfect time to encourage the men in our lives to take care of themselves. LiveWell4Health celebrates June as National Men’s Health Month and urges all men to take steps to be healthier through exercise, eating healthy, and getting screened for potential illnesses.
The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to increase awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of diseases in boys and men.
So, what can men do to be healthier?
Eat healthy - limit eating foods high in calories, sugar, salt and fat and add more fruits and vegetables to your diet.
Get moving - make a goal to reach 2 ½ hours of regular physical activity per week. Make sure to participate in activities you enjoy to stay motivated.
Make prevention a priority - schedule regular checkups and health screenings with your doctor.
Set an example - consistently pull the above healthy habits together and be a role model for those watching you.
