Father’s Day is just around the corner (June 21st in case you didn’t know) and what a great time to think about men’s health and dear old dad!
Men often don’t take time to think about their own health and prevention of disease. So, make Father’s Day a day to help him put himself and his health first.
Encourage a healthy family activity like a walk, bike ride, swim or some other activity the family enjoys doing together. Also, talk to dad about the last time he went to the doctor for a check up. If it’s been awhile, help him make an appointment. Many diseases and conditions can be prevented and treated early through preventative check ups. Each man has unique needs and individualized needs when it comes to his health. For example, a 40-year old dad has different needs than a 60-year old. But, the one thing we all -- men, women and children -- have in common is preventative care. It does help save lives and prevent diseases.
Speaking of diseases, obesity is truly at epidemic proportions in our country. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, our adult population is more than one-third obese (78.6 million Americans) and the rate continues to grow each year.
Help the father and father figure in your life live a healthier life through leading by example and embracing a healthier lifestyle for the entire family. Small changes have a profound impact and do add up.
