"Dad is My Super Hero!"

Men's Health Month

We've all heard women say it in a condescending way:  "Men!"  Especially when we men decide to be the stereotypical macho guy who exclaims he doesn't need to get that regular check up.  "I feel just fine! Why do I need to go to the doctor?  Besides, What I don't know won't hurt me."  We all need to monitor our health and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that we can lead by example, especially your biggest idol, dad.  Take charge of your health, whether you are a dad, grandfather, son, or even a nephew.  We want you around for the long haul.  Say "Kaboom" to bad health habits and be everyone's Super Hero!


What You Can Do to Improve Your Health


Below are tips on how you can live a longer and healthier life:

  • Be safe and protect yourself. Take steps to protect yourself against injuries and harmful exposures at work, home, and play.
  • Eat healthy. Increase the number of fruits and vegetables you eat. Decrease saturated fat, salt, and empty calories. Watch how much you eat.
  • Be active. Get thirty minutes of moderate physical activity on most, preferably all, days of the week.
  • Be smoke-free. If you smoke, quit now. Help lines, counseling, medications, and other forms of support are available to help you.
  • Get check-ups. Get routine exams and tests to check your health. Get immunizations. Take steps to lower your risk for disease.
