Listen up men! Taking care of yourself isn’t hard at all. In fact, just a few easy tips for men’s health are all it takes to get you on track. The first thing to do is make a commitment to be honest to yourself about what you’re doing and how you’re living. Have you been denying that you’re a workaholic as you drive home after yet another late night at the office? Do you keep your Blackberry strapped to the back of your neck 24/7?
Constant stress eventually wears down the immune system, leading to disease and serious problems like high blood pressure. While men’s health supplements like lycopene, pygeum, saw palmetto, selenium, and zinc can all work together to strengthen the immune system and improve the health of prostate tissue, it's important to remember the mind-body-spirit connection with overall health and wellness--regardless of your gender.
You’ve heard it before and you’ll hear it again. Stop smoking. Cigarettes literally fill your body with chemicals that cause cancer. You'll find many groups and organizations--often through your workplace--that can support you with this tough habit to break.
Eat a healthy diet loaded with fruits and vegetables. No, you don’t have to become a granola muncher to be a healthy guy. However, cutting back on highly fatty foods like double cheeseburgers is a positive first step.
And finally, get some regular exercise. You can hit the gym, pound the pavement, or take up a sport. The aim is to exercise regularly every day for good health.
