Improve The Health Of The Men In Your Life!
In general, men have poorer health habits, like smoking and drinking alcohol in excess. They are less likely to discuss health issues and seek preventative health checks. As their partners, we can help the men in our lives take better care of themselves and be healthier.
Exercise Together - Even the smallest amount of physical activity can help control weight and reduce the risk for serious diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers.
Make Healthier Meals & Snacks - Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat or fat-free milk products.
Quit Smoking - It's the best thing you can do for your health and can encourage those around you to quit as well.
Drink Alcohol in Moderation – Dietary Guidelines for Americans defines moderate drinking as up to one drink per day for women and up to two drinks per day for men.
Talk About Health – Educate yourself about health issues affecting men and have open discussions with your partner. This can encourage them to feel more comfortable about sharing their health concerns or symptoms. The smallest symptoms should be taken seriously and discussed with a health care provider.
