5 Easy Ways to Gear Up For National Men's Health Month

With June approaching, it is not only the kickoff of summer, but also National Men’s Health Month. This time of the year is an essential reminder to raise awareness around health issues that are preventable, and encourage early detection and treatment for men and boys. Almost 60% of men will refuse to see a doctor, even when they are having a serious medical symptoms. Men are tough as nails, but there are a even more things that they can do every day to make them stronger and healthier.

Switch Up The Diet

Switching up your diet is one of the easiest ways to improve your health. Adding spinach to your daily routine is a sure fire way to get 56% of your daily recommended vitamin A, and your full requirement of vitamin K...in only one cup! It is packed with antioxidants, which help to lower the risk of getting chronic diseases. Carrots are another superfood that contain beta-carotene, an antioxidant that not only gives them their orange color, but also can be beneficial to cancer prevention. According to Health Line, one study revealed that for each serving of carrots per week, participants' risk of prostate cancer decreased by 5%.




Now Walk It Out

Exercise can make a world of difference, but the easiest way to improve in most aspects of your life would be to start walking. Starting with only thirty minutes of walking a day, the benefits are incredible. First of all, your mood will improve and the exposure to sunlight has potential to fight off Seasonal Affective Disorder. Additionally, your pants will start to become a lot looser. This is because with every step you take, your body is improving its response to insulin, which can help reduce belly fat. According to Ariel Lasevoli, she noticed one of her personal training clients started walking to and from work each day (just under a mile), and as a result lost 2% of body fat within a month. If you’re not sure where to start, shoot for about 10,000-15,000 steps a day. Most smartphones have built in devices under their health apps that can help to track your steps when your phone is in your pocket.

Got The Blues

Mental health is something that is crucial to staying healthy, but often is overlooked. Between financial strain, pressure at work, and relationship issues, life can become pretty stressful. Stress has many effects on the body and is commonly linked to heart disease, insomnia, and gastrointestinal problems. Insight Timer is an app that offers free meditations that help to lower anxiety and bring a sense of mindfulness. In only five to twenty minutes, you will be able to obtain better sleep, achieve greater levels of compassion and gratitude, and begin to find peace and happiness.


Get The Job Done

Being intimate with your partner has plenty of benefits. It allows you to release stress, assists in having better sleep, and lowers your chances of prostate cancer. As men get older, there can sometimes be issues performing like you used to. Hims offers Sildenafil as a way to relax blood vessels in the body and promote blood flow to all the areas in the body essential to taking care of business. Since most men don’t like going to their doctors, you are able to connect with online physicians and after answering a few questions, they will discreetly ship it to your house. No awkward in person convos or long in-office wait times. You will be ready for action whenever that time comes.

Drink Up

It is recommended to drink up to at least 64 ounces of water a day. That can be done by following the 8x8 rule: drink eight ounce glasses of water, eight times a day. 4 out of 10 Americans don’t drink enough water daily, and what many don’t realize is the benefits of downing enough water are basically endless. Since your brain is made nearly 90% of water, it helps to maintain focus and increase energy levels. It also helps to flush toxins out of the body through sweating and urination. Most importantly, it can act as a way to boost the immune system. Mind Boy Green stated that “Drinking plenty of water helps fight against flu, cancer and other ailments like heart attacks.”


All in all, this time of year just acts as another reminder to do what’s right for your body. It will thank you in return. Even making any one of these small changes will have a big impact on your life!
