June is Men's Health Month!
The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of diseases including cancer, heart disease, and depression.
To all the men out there - here's how you can observe National Men's Health Month:
Focus on your diet. Here's your chance to change the way you eat! Cut back on alcohol this month or up your intake of healthy fermented foods like sauerkraut and kefir. You can do anything for a month (and if you can do it for a month, you can do it for life)!
Set some goals. Use this month to take stock of your health now and think about where you want it to be. Do you want to lose weight? Gain muscle? Eat more vegetables? Set small, achievable goals and work with your primary care physician or health coach to make them a reality!
Educate yourself. Take this opportunity to read about the common health issues that are specific to men and how you can prevent disease or future health problems. Check out the CDC for more information on men's health.
