Top Men’s Health Tips
Get Regular Health Screenings
Men statistically don’t go to the doctor as often as they should. Typically, the number of doctor visits reduces when symptoms relate to the genitals and fertility. However, there are more than 2000 cases of testicular cancer diagnosed every year in the UK. If you have symptoms, don’t ignore them.
Exercise is one of the best things you can do for your long term health. Find something that you love to do that involves moving, and make it part of your routine.
Monitor Your Waistline
BMI is often what people think about when asked to monitor their weight. However, it actually can be a problem depending on your body type. An easy way to determine if your body is a healthy shape is to measure your height and weight. Your waist is also an indicator of good health and if your wait circumference is high then you may need to look at your diet.
Maintain Healthy Relationships
The relationships we build in our lives are essential for helping to maintain our health. Emotional and mental wellbeing is important. This means maintaining friendship groups as well as family and intimate partners. Healthy relationships keep you strong.
