National Men’s Health Week is celebrated each June in the weeks leading up to Father’s Day on June 20th. You can support the men in your life by having healthy habits yourself and by making healthy choices, including these three small (but powerful!) suggestions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
• Make healthy food choices and include vitamins and minerals in your daily diet that may help protect you from chronic diseases. Limit food and drinks that are high in calories, sugar, salt or fat.
• Adults need 2½ hours of physical activity each week. Regular physical activity can help control your weight, reduce your risk of heart disease and some cancers, and can improve your mental health and mood. Find fun ways to be active together!
• Help the men in your life recognize, manage and reduce stress, including finding emotional support, eating well, exercising regularly, and getting enough rest.
