Many times, we tend to focus on helping women fight the aging process. However, men need to be involved too, as they want to stay healthy and feeling young as long as possible.
Our in-home care providers at Qualicare – Calgary want to offer some tips on healthy lifestyle changes you can make to help you live a long and fulfilling life.
Live a Longer, Healthier Life!
While we might not be able to change our genetic makeup, there are lifestyle changes men can make to maintain a longer, healthier life.
Watch What You Eat
When you’re in a rush or waited too long to eat, it can be easy to just run through a fast-food restaurant to get a bite to eat. However, convenience isn’t always healthy, which is why it’s important to skip processed foods as much as possible.
Processed and restaurant foods are often packed with sodium, which can increase your risk of developing high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.
To improve your nutrition game, try to practice meal prepso that when you’re in a rush, the first thing you’re reaching for is a pre-made, healthy dish rather than chips and soda. Also, try to consume at least five or more daily servings of fruits and vegetables.
