1. Find a good GP you can talk too.
Men often find it difficult opening up to a doctor, but finding a good GP you are comfortable with makes it easier to start having discussions. Our male doctor, Paul Colbrook enjoys offering medical care and advice to men of all ages who are concerned about their health and wellbeing.
2. Talk about your stress and struggles to your GP.
By having these conversations with your GP, together you can develop a plan to manage stress and live your healthiest life.
3. Limit your alcoholic drinks to less than 10 a week.
Cutting your alcohol consumption means you are less likely to feel anxious or depressed. It will also reduce your risk of developing long-term health problems such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, and liver problems.
4. Be active every day.
Physical activity or exercise can improve your health and wellbeing and reduce the risk of developing several diseases like type 2 diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease.
5. Have a check-up every year.
When it comes to health, prevention is better than cure which is why it is recommended that even if you feel healthy, it’s wise to keep up to date with your appointments.
