5 THINGS WORTH KNOWING ABOUT MEN’S HEALTH
- MAKE MAN TIME
Stay connected. Spending time with your friends is good for you. Catch up regularly, check in and make time.
- HAVE OPEN CONVERSATIONS
Talk about what’s really going on. Listen. Being there for someone can be lifesaving.
- KNOW THE NUMBERS (for some, this may be a little late ;-))
At 50, talk to your doctor about prostate cancer. If you’re of African or Caribbean descent, or have a family history of prostate cancer, have the conversation at 45.
- KNOW THY NUTS
Give ‘em a feel regularly and get to know what’s normal for you. Something doesn’t seem right? Go to the doctor.
- MOVE MORE
Get active on a daily basis. Do more of what makes you feel good.
