Wonder how to make the men in your family healthier? Here at CarePro Health Services, we care about the men in your life, and want to help you keep them alive for a long, long time. Check out how to make this Men’s Health Month not only life changing but also fun.
- Get them out of the house
Sometimes pulling your partner away from the TV is a challenge, but exercise becomes more and more important as we grow older. Men need at least two and a half hours a week of exercise, so why not make that exercise fun? Go out for a hike, swim or bike ride. It is not only excellent exercise, but also precious bonding time with no electronics!
- Enforce a sleeping schedule
Good sleep habits such as going to bed at the same time every night and getting seven hours of sleep a night lead to healthier lives. Make sure your bedroom is quiet and comfortable for sleeping, and if you are still having trouble, turn the AC down – cooler temperatures make us drowsier. Most importantly, avoid coffee six hours before bedtime and no late night snacks.
Keep in mind, if your partner is snoring, he may be suffering from sleep apnea which can be fatal if left untreated. Encourage him to see his doctor and visit CarePro Home Medical for CPAP therapy equipment.
- Let them drink that beer
Scared your man might be developing a beer belly? No worries, because according to new research the barley in beer is an excellent source of the mineral silicon which is very important for bone formation. So next time they crack one open, remember it strengthens their bones and is perfectly fine in moderation.
- Cook Indian
If there is a new Indian recipe you wanted to try, this is the perfect opportunity. Most Indian food contains turmeric, which is a very powerful antioxidant. India, where turmeric is as common as salt, has one of the lowest prostate cancer rates in the world. It also helps fight Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. So the next time they ask for BBQ, make them some Tandoori chicken instead.
For other medical equipment, prescription and vitamin needs in your men’s lives, CarePro Health Services is just a click away.
