This week is Men’s Health Week, a week celebrated around the world every year in June that focuses on highlighting men’s health and what it means to be healthy.
As professionals offering health and wellness services at our Allied Health and Wellness Centre in South Australia we felt it was important to highlight the importance of staying healthy, both mentally and physically. So, our qualified Physiotherapist and Operations Manager, Michael Zoumaras has put together his top tips and simple ways on improving and maintaining your health, as a means to do his part this Men’s Health Week – man to man.
But first, why is it important to look after your health from the inside-out? What are the benefits other than those commonly spoken about, like weight loss? In terms of looking after your body through exercise, the benefits are endless on physical, mental and even social levels. It’s been proven that physical activity can encourage a positive mental wellbeing and can even reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression. Not to mention it can boost self esteem, assist with chronic pain (light walks), maintain strength and balance, and build muscle, as well as help reduce blood pressure – plus SO much more!
So, what are some of the best ways to look after yourself? And what are Michael’s tips on maintaining this beyond this week?
