Strong is probably the first word that comes to mind when I think about my grandfather, the patriarch of our family, who will turn 95 in October. Although his strength is no longer defined by his stature, his presence is a force to be reckoned with. He still drives, meets friends for lunch, and plays pool once a week.
Now is The Perfect Time to Reach Out to the Men In Your Life
This month, we celebrate Father’s Day Sunday, June 17. June is also dedicated to National Men’s Health Month to increase awareness on important health issues that affect men. Now is the perfect time to reach out to the men in your life – fathers, grandfathers, brothers, uncles, and sons – and spend some quality time together. Whether it’s hiking, biking, fishing, or just enjoying a family BBQ, be sure to stay hydrated with AMPED™ Hydrate, enriched with vitamins C and B-complex. With no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners, this a refreshing drink to keep you cool this Father’s Day and all summer long.
Help Keep Your Loved One(s) Healthy!
Also, during Men’s Health Month, remember to encourage your loved one(s) to take control of their health (today and every day) by making small changes and creating healthful habits that can positively impact their lives for years to come. Research suggests that regular physical activity has many health benefits, including better weight control; reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers; and improved balance. A healthy diet is also hugely important to maintaining overall health. Experts say that men are more likely than women to carry extra weight around their stomach, so be sure to remind your loved ones how important it is to get routine checkups and schedule annual screenings. Studies suggest certain health conditions that only affect men such as prostate cancer or any of the major health risks that men face – like colon cancer or heart disease – can be prevented and treated with early diagnosis.
Cheers to keeping all the men in your life happy and healthy!
