The word on the street is that men don’t care about their overall health as much as women. However, they do—and they should.
Our in-home care providers at Qualicare Southwest Indiana want to help men make their health a priority, too, so that they can fight the aging process just like women.
Let’s look at some ways you can work to stay healthy and happy for as long as possible.
First, you want to make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Not only can water help keep your skin tight by replenishing your skin cells and tissues, water can also keep you hydrated during the hot summer months.
Second, you also want to make sure you are plenty of fruits and vegetableseach day. Did you know that eating seven or more helpings of fruits and vegetables can help add years to your life?
That’s because fruits and veggies are packed with all sorts of nutrients that benefit health—including cancer-fighting antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. And when you fill your plate with these foods, you’re less likely to eat large quantities of other, less healthy options.
Third, if you are a smoker, quit as soon as possible. Whether you cut off smoking cold turkey or through the help of a program, quitting smoking is your best bet in preventing lung cancer, other types of cancer, heart disease and stroke.
Finally, you want to make sure you are getting some type of physical activity most days of the week. Not only can exercise help to keep your heart strong and mind sharp, it can also help you maintain a healthy balance—which is a key way to reduce your risk of falls.
