There are 5 things that men can do to stay healthy…and you can start all 5 of these today!
1. Avoid brain drain
Boost your memory by engaging in at least 3 hours of aerobic exercise a week. Aerobic exercise can help improve blood flow to the brain and help keep it healthier as you age.
2. Become a zen-master
Stress may actually harm you by increasing inflammation in your body and raising your risk of developing heart disease.
3. It’s not as bad as you think
Because men are more likely to be diagnosed with colorectal cancer, if you’re over 50, it’s time for a colonoscopy. While not fun, this test is actually quick and painless.
4. Get tested
All men over the age of 50 should consider getting a prostate specific antigen (PSA) test. This simple blood test can help catch prostate cancer early. Prostate cancer is a very slow-growing cancer so, if caught early, it is very treatable.
5. With a little help from my friends
It’s long been known that having a strong network of friends and family is good for your health and is associated with greater longevity. So, be social – even Facebook friends count!
