Ensuring both physical and mental health and wellbeing is one of the most difficult challenges men face today. Desk jobs, pollution, lack of physical activity and mental pressure caused by this consumerist system is taking a toll on their health overall. In this article we shall discuss a few effective ways to strengthen men’s health.
5 ways you need to know about:
The following are some of the top ways you need to know.
Set up a diet plan with a nutritionist:
Nutritionists can properly analyze men and their health, by having a look at their weight, muscular condition, their regular diet, and test results regarding vitamins, calcium and other nutrients. Through the cumulation of all these things, they can provide you with a diet plan that will fit perfectly for your personal needs as a man. Men technically need different diet plans as compared to women.
Naturally, we tend to have a restrictive diet especially during weight lifting, although nutritionists mainly recommend increasing your diversity in diet, because taking a restrictive one usually causes the lack (and excess) of particular nutrients in our body that harm us in the long run.
Visit a physiotherapist for bodily guidance:
When it comes to physical activity, we usually tend to take care of ourselves. However, if we take guidance from a physiotherapist or a physical therapist, they can analyze our bodily condition, its weaknesses and provide us with the necessary guidance. Their advice would be usually related to
- Correcting the body’s posture
- Enhancing muscular coordination
- Ensuring the strengthening of basic muscles
- Improving stamina and endurance
They can help with exercises to strengthen lower back, which will ensure that we can live physically fit for longer and lower the probability of permanent muscular damage as we grow older.
Set up an exercise regimen:
Next thing you need to do is set up an exercise regimen that would suit your needs. Although according to the professional recommendations, it is necessary that we weight lift about twice a week at least, and spend some time for cardio.
However, the kind of body you want, and if you want to work on your muscular strength, or stamina and heart health, you will have to follow particular exercise regiments in order to gain your ideal body.
Keep a good personal hygiene:
Taking baths more often, brushing teeth twice a day, keeping your home clean and taking the trash out are a few things that will improve your health. A dirty environment is a sign of laziness, and increases the risks of bacterial and viral infections. Furthermore, filth is more likely to adversely affect your physical and mental health.
Have mental therapy:
While there is a lot of focus on physical health, many people tend to neglect mental health. It is important too. In fact, men are more likely to be depressed and they have a significantly higher rate of suicide. Our societies do not take the mental health of men seriously (and frankly, neither do men). They should visit psychiatrists on a regular basis.
Overall health is a mixture of both physical and mental care and it is only through collective effort and expert advice can we ensure that.
