Men, Take Control of Your Health

Posted: November 07, 2016

 

Take control of your health and look after yourself. Start here. The take the Move Challenge. 

 

 

Move

The best thing you can do for your health is to stay active. How you move is up to you. Whether it’s a work out one day, a quick jog at lunchtime the next, throw some combinations, or an epic bike ride, no move is too big or small.  

 

Talk about the big stuff in life

The break up of a relationship, loss of a job, financial trouble or becoming a father are big moments in a man’s life that happen to many men. It’s important to recognize the impact of these and know it’s ok to talk about how you’re coping with the change.

 

Knowledge is power

Family history is one of the most powerful tools to understanding your health. Family history affects your level of risk for cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke, among other illnesses. It all starts with a conversation; talk to your family and take note of illnesses that a direct relative has experienced. Be sure to learn about relatives that are deceased as well

 

If you notice something, do something

You know your body better than anyone. If you notice something isn’t feeling right, don’t put it off and hope that it goes away, go to the doctor and get it checked out. Early detection is the most important factor in treating the big issues.

 

Guys you are invited to a free Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class at TNT.
