American men’s life expectancy has increased to 79 years- far over the predicted age of 54 years back in 1920. A lot of people know the value of good health, but if you still do not know the tenets, then this article should provide you with some very useful information.
1.Sleep is the Key
Until now, researchers still do not know why people go to sleep. I mean, if it is to rest and recuperate, why do we need to have our mind and our eyes shut for the duration of our sleep?
Well, the answer to that is really not cut and dry, but one thing is for certain: it is necessary for our well-being.
It has been said that sleep actually starts the process of muscle repair and it also maintains our cognitive processes as well.
This also helps us heal our wounds and it also rejuvenates us. Typically, you want to get at least 7-9 hours of sleep per day but you also want to get that with unhindered sleep.
As much as possible, you want to complete that nightly routine without any interruptions so that you will feel so much better when you wake up.
2.Maintaining Good Weight and Blood Pressure
Knowing your BMI or Body Mass Index should give you a much clearer picture of the ideal body weight that you should aim for given your height and weight.
Although you can veer away a little but, make sure that you are still within the ideal range. To help you maintain a healthy weight and also a good blood pressure level, you want to minimize eating red meat and foods that are laden with sodium.
You also want to make sure that you do not overstress yourself with work and other endeavors. Get enough rest as well.
As men, we need to be more active to ensure good overall health. Having consistent exercise is key. Aim to have at least 30-45 minutes of aerobic exercise per day, such as jogging, brisk walking, and running.
You may also want to include some weightlifting as well. I suggest that you do the “big 3”: bench press, squats, and deadlifts.
4.Get Your Screenings
For you to be able to know if there is something bad is brewing inside of you, you will need to get some screenings. Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer that men will get so you want to get some screenings for that especially if you already got the hint on difficulties to last longer in bed.
You also want to know your blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and so much more. And, do not be stubborn when it comes to medical checkups because these activities will help you become healthier.
5.Make Safety a Priority
Do not engage in high-risk activities such as driving without putting on a seat belt, riding a bike without a helmet, climbing without property safety equipment and so on.
You also want to avoid the excessive consumption of alcohol and you also want to avoid cigarette smoking as much as possible.
