The month of November or “Movember” is Men’s Health Awareness monthdedicated to helping men live happier, healthier, and longer lives. We all know a man who lives his life precariously paying little if any attention to his health and well-being. Men are known for becoming so involved in their work and family that practicing good health habits are often last on their list.
If this is their attitude, men’s attitudes need to change. Men live on average five years less than women. There are many reasons for this, including the fact men tend to be higher risk-takers and often work physically taxing jobs putting a lot of strain on their bodies. But another factor is men may view taking care of himself as being vain or unmanly to the point they’d rather be in denial and take their chances if something health wise is wrong.
We all want men to live a long, healthy life but when men tend to ignore their health, it won’t be long before illness and disease come knocking at his door.
