For adults, some of us have to be dragged to the doctor kicking and screaming to eat healthy, or get enough exercise.Your health is important but this is often placed on the backburner for too many men I see in my office until there is a more serious health problem they need to address. That’s the wrong approach to bettering your health.If you have made a commitment this year to get healthy and stay safe, or have reached a turning point in your life where you would like to make lasting improvements, follow these five pieces of advice to fine-tune your wellbeing and achieve male enhancement
#1 Make Your Health a Priority
Your health condition should be your number one concern, but our jobs and families often get so distracted that we forget it.
The reality, though, is why you get to the point where you need medical intervention when today you can make healthy decisions to ensure optimal health.It’s not selfish to make your health a priority.
It’s selfless. Why? Because you’re happier, you’ll be safer and more involved with your families, friends and work.Many studies indicate the more mentally and physically a person is healthier, the more they can achieve. So, prepare yourself for a paradigm change before you do anything else, and prioritize what’s necessary.
#2 See Your Doctor
Everyone should see a doctor regularly. Occasionally I hear men come in with a number of reasons not to go to the doctor —
“it takes too long” or “I have to wait too long.” But those excuses no longer hold up.You can get a doctor’s appointment with stuff like telehealth treatment without setting a foot in an office. There are several opportunities for visits in person, too. You can go to some pharmacy or an urgent care clinic and be seen that day by a healthcare professional.Just as you always have a friend to
call when you’re in need, you always need a friend you can call when it comes to your body, too —which should be a health care provider in this case. There are recommendations on when you should see a doctor for certain health issues, depending on your age.Schedule a regular visit with your doctor, rather than just Googling it. He or she’ll get you on the right path to complete your regular screenings.
At least 150 minutes of physical exercise are recommended each week by the American Heart Association and other health organisations. Many people are buying a smartwatch and taking their 10,000 steps a day, and feeling they’re done. That’s fine, but your heart rate does not get up.Get moderate exercise (power walking, jogging or swimming) for 150 minutes or vigorous exercise for at least 75 minutes a week (intense aerobic or musclestrengthening activities), whether it’s on the weekend or all day.Get your heart pumping, which strengthens your muscles and other parts of your body as well.
#4 Eat a Healthy, Balanced Diet
Many people start dieting and concentrate on calorie restriction. They aren’t eating enough though. The problem is when you limit the intake of nutrients in your body; it starts to get into the mode of conservation or starvation. The body takes everything you put in it and then stores it for later.Instead, take in more of the right calories and you will become stronger, healthier and your body will not feel deprived. I always recommend seeing a nutritionist if you’re not sure where to start, at least to get you started on what changes to make since there are man different diets.Dieting isn’t starving it eating intelligently so focuses on making the right food choices.
#5 Get Enough Sleep
You should sleep at least seven hours a night, to help relax and rejuvenate your mind and body. The time to do this is not when you sit on a couch watching television. The only way to reset is to sleep comfortably in bed, with your eyes closed.Patients often get into my office with issues of tiredness or libido. They think it’s a problem with thyroid, or low testosterone, but it’s really due to lack of sleep. They work too much, they become stressed out or they drink too much alcohol, which over-stimulates the brain.
Sleep can be the root cause or contributing factor to a health problem in some situations and having enough rest will help the body heal.
For every guy, good health should be a priority, but sometimes we don’t give it the importance it deserves. There’s simply no excuse to put your health at the very bottom of your to -do list anymore.
