Real men make their health a priority. Gone are the days of ignoring symptoms and ‘toughing it out.’ Men who lay a healthy foundation during their 20s are more likely to avoid preventable diseases later in life.
Despite work, family, and other challenges in your 20s, 30s, and 40s, you eat healthy, exercise, and get good sleep. You know how to manage and lower your stress. Knowing what’s most important to your health at any age can make a difference.
Regular attention to living healthy can pay off for men in their 50s and beyond. Even as your body changes and what you need to do to stay healthy evolves over time, one thing remains the same: living a healthier life and being there for yourself and your loved ones takes a lifelong commitment.
You don’t have to go it alone. Schedule a regular check-up with your doctor. It’s the best way to find diseases early on when they are easier to treat. It’s also reassuring, and will help you sleep better and get the recommended 7 to 9 hours every night.
