Father's Day Men's Health Tips from Peoples Health
6 Men's Health Tips for Father's Day
1. Get Enough Sleep
Aim for seven to nine hours per night.
2. Stop Smoking
If you quit now, you'll lower your risk for cancer, COPD, and other smoking-related illnesses.
3. Exercise More
Try to fit in 2 ½ hours of aerobic activity, plus muscle-strengthening exercises, each week.
4. Eat Healthy
Your diet should include a variety of fruits and vegetables daily.
5. Reduce Stress
You'll feel much more relaxed if you avoid drugs and alcohol, connect socially, and find support.
6. Get Regular Checkups
You need to know your blood pressure and cholesterol numbers, because if they’re elevated, your risk for heart disease and stroke goes up. And high blood pressure may even increase your risk for erectile dysfunction. You also need screening for colorectal and prostate cancer: Positive outcomes are more likely with early detection.
According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's (AHRQ) Stay Healthy at Any Age page, you don't need a one-size-fits-all yearly physical. Rather, develop a partnership with your healthcare provider, and based on your profile and lifestyle, decide which screenings, diagnostic tests, and immunizations are right for you. The timing and frequency should be based on your risk factors for developing a condition or disease, including family or personal history, age, ethnicity, and environmental exposure.
In honor of Father’s Day, Dad, go to the AHRQ website and learn about the recommended ages for testing, tips on talking to the doctor, and much more. We'll love you all the more for it.
