5 Lifestyle Tips to Boost Men‚s Health Starting Now

Last month we celebrated Women‚s Health Week, and this month we want to give the men out there some love. After all, June is Men‚s Health Month ‚ a national movement encouraging men to take better care of their bodies. A blue ribbon is the official symbol for the month, so feel free to rock one to show your support and spread awareness about men‚s health issues. So listen up, men: today on the Vibrant Health blog, we‚re sharing five tips to improve your health this month (and beyond)! 5 Tips to Boost Your Health for National Men‚s Health Month
  1. Get Clear on Your Health Goals
  2. Revamp Your Diet & Incorporate Supplements
  3. Book Your Annual Physical & Don‚t Avoid the Doctor
  4. Check in with Your Mental Health
  5. Stay Active
  • Get Clear on Your Health Goals
Goal-setting doesn‚t have to be reserved for the New Year. This month, take some time to get clear on your health goals. Start small by implementing healthy, bite-sized goals like committing to packing your own work lunch three times a week in place of your usual fast food or signing up for a 5K road race. Get your friends, family or coworkers involved to stay motivated!
  • Revamp Your Diet & Incorporate Supplements
Men have different health needs than women, and now is a great time to consider what‚s working for you and revamp your diet. We recommend eating whole foods as much as possible and incorporating clean supplements for additional support. Trilogy Men is built with your nutritional needs in mind ‚ each box including a 30-day supply of power packs combining an organic, plant-based multivitamin, 100% mercury free fish oil (with added vitamin B12 and vitamin D3), and probiotic. Depending on your unique needs, Super Natural Boron (great for regulating hormonal Vitamin D and testosterone) and A Man‚s Zinc (supporting prostate health) may also be a great addition to your supplement lineup.
  • Book Your Annual Physical & Don‚t Avoid the Doctor
Are you avoiding your doc? You‚re not alone. According to this survey by the Cleveland Clinic, health isn‚t a popular topic for men to openly discuss. In fact, the survey found only 3 in 5 men visit the doctor for their routine annual checkup. Here‚s your cue to bite the bullet and book that physical! Your annual exam is a great opportunity to discuss your overall health, implement preventative measures, and screen for health issues like prostate cancer, high blood pressure and dietary concerns.
  • Check in with Your Mental Health
According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, suicide is highest among middle-aged white men, and in 2019 men died by suicide 3.63x more often than women. With this in mind and last month being Mental Health Awareness Month, we think it‚s important to continue the conversation around mental illness throughout the year (as it affects both men and women alike). Take some time to check in with your mental health, and seek support from friends, family or professionals if needed. Consider scheduling a therapy session through a company like Talkspace ‚ which offers virtual support with providers specializing in depression, stress, mood disorders and more.
  • Stay active
Exercise and health go hand in hand, so it‚s important to incorporate some type of movement into your routine. After all, studies show that regular physical activity can help prevent chronic disease and premature death. If joining the gym or at-home workouts aren‚t for you, think outside the box. Now that the weather's getting warmer, it‚s the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors with activities like hiking, tennis, golf, running or a game of pick-up basketball.
