(ThySistas.comStaying healthy and fit throughout the years of our lives is super important, and many of us really don’t take enough time to sit down and think about how to stay healthy. When it comes to looking after ourselves, men are notoriously worse than women and they can end up going months and years without looking after themselves or getting an issue checked out. Today we are looking at men in particular and the things you can do this year to stay healthy.

Go to the doctor

It is so important throughout our lives to go to the doctors every so often to get ourselves checked out and make sure that we are healthy and happy. Even if you don’t think you have any issues it is worth checking up once a year or so to see where your body is and if there are any things you can do to be healthier.

Check the balls

One of the important things you have to do every now and again as a man is to check your testcles and make sure that there are no lumps or abnormalities. Testicular cancer can be pretty easy to spot and when caught early enough the chance of survival is very high. If you can check every few months to ensure everything is normal it will give you the peace of mind to carry on living your normal life.

Think vasectomy

One of the things which as older men you might not consider is tubal ligation. A vasectomy can actually be a great thing for your health when you get older because it can make sure you are less at risk of cancer and other issues. If you don’t plan to have more children this is a simple procedure which can have a positive impact on your life and make sure you stay healthy for longer.

Stress less

One of the leading causes of illness in men is stress. There are so many stress related illnesses out there such as high blood pressure and strokes, and often as men we don’t get them checked up and we don’t try to treat the stress. To make sure we are healthy and happy and live for longer, it is important to combat stress and have a break once in a while. You can take a day or two off work, go on holiday or simply practice yoga… anything can make a big difference.

Get moving

Heart disease is much more common in men than women and it is important that we get moving and stay fit to combat this. If you are struggling with your weight and feel as if you need to move more, you only need to head out for a walk in the country or a kick about in the park. You can be as active as you want as long as you move around, and it will make a huge impact on your life and will in turn help to reduce your risk of heart disease by a long shot.
