MensHealthWeek

Be Confident About Your Health

# MensHealthWeek is a global effort to raise awareness about male health issues. It is an opportunity for you to give the guys in your life a nudge to have annual health checks and stay educated about preventative health.

Other lifestyle changes men should make to maintain their health:
  • Lose weight if you’re overweight.
  • Don’t smoke or use tobacco.
  • Limit how much alcohol you drink.
  • Protect your skin from the sun.
  • Manage your stress.
  • Practice safe sex.
  • Avoid risky or harmful actions or choices.
