Men's Health: 5 Get-Healthy Tips for Men That Don’t Involve Sweat or the Scale

Let’s face it, we can all be a little healthier. Men especially have room for improvement, but it doesn’t all boil down to eating betterlosing weight and exercising like most get-healthy lists would have you believe. These five tips are easy, painless and will drastically improve your health.

  • See a nurse practitioner. Sixty percent of men don’t get regular checkups, and 40 percent wait until a symptom is unbearable to make an appointment.
  • Wear sunscreen. Eighty-five percent of men don’t use sunscreen, which makes them two to three times more likely to develop skin cancer.
  • Make friends. Loneliness has the same mortality risk as smoking, and it’s an epidemic for men.
  • Sleep. Mood, alertness, coordination, memory and cognitive function hinge on a good night’s sleep, and alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, stress and screens can sabotage that.

Guys, it’s Men’s Health Month. Even though most men don’t like talking about it, admit it, healthy living never felt so good!
