Celebrate National Men’s Health Week, June 13-19, 2016

In an attempt to address many of the chronic disease, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and depression that males are faced with, it is important to get a good night sleep, preferably, 7- 9 hours. Smoking is a habit to avoid and by doing so, it lowers the risk of many smoking related respiratory diseases. Engage in physical activity, on a weekly basis. Remember to eat healthy, with a variety of fruits and vegetables which help to protect you from chronic diseases. Tame stress by avoiding drugs and alcohol, if needed, find support, connect with others and most importantly, stay active. Most importantly, remember to get your annual checkups! https://www.cdc.gov/men/nmhw/
