Men often lead stressful lives but can be less careful about looking after their health compared to women. Men often have less health checks, and visit their GP less often, this can mean that problems escalate.
As well as physical health it is equally important to look after mental and emotional health. Research confirms that there is a mind-body connection in disease. Studies indicate that those that suffer bouts of depression are more likely to develop heart disease. Pressures of work, mid life crisis and other issues can affect health. We all face challenges of ageing, retirement and changing roles in life.
The impact of diet, exercise and stress reduction is recognised by many as benefitting health. It is important to make time to plan a good diet with plenty of fresh unprocessed food, drink lots of plain water, take part in regular exercise and also enjoy a hobby or two!
No man is an island – when you look after your health, it means you are able to continue to look after those around you, children, siblings, parents, friends. Invest in a good multi vitamin, check your diet and get more active so that you can enjoy a healthy, happy life with those you love. xx
