Taking Action During Men’s Health Week This June
National Men’s Health Week is a countrywide effort to improve public education about the health concerns most common among men of every age. This year, National Men’s Health Week will be held from June 13-19, highlighting the information and wellness tools you need to enjoy better health today and throughout your lifetime. We invite you to celebrate this important event in Thousand Oaks with the staff of Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center by taking proactive steps toward improving and maintaining your health.
Learn Your Risk Factors
Many of the most common men’s health concerns are associated with genetic and lifestyle risk factors, including your age, your family history, your diet, and even your daily schedule. Taking the time to learn about your personal risk factors can help you develop a long-term health plan that will reduce these risks wherever possible to improve your health or help you manage some of the most common chronic health conditions faced by men today, including diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure.
Increase Daily Physical Activity
As modern lifestyles focus more than ever before on computing and desk-bound work tasks, getting enough physical activity each day has become a challenge. Making a commitment to increasing the amount you move each day can have many beneficial effects, including better weight management, improved general health, and a positive self-image. Learning more about the recommended amount of physical activity that you should be getting and breaking this total up into smaller, more manageable periods throughout the week can help you easily enjoy a more active and healthier lifestyle.
