‘Man Up!’

June is month to raise awareness of men’s health.

Eating right, exercising and working to prevent disease is a year-long objective. This month, however, an extra emphasis is put on encouraging men to take a step forward to better health.

June is Men’s Health Month. It’s time to heighten awareness of preventable health issues and encourage early detection and treatment of diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and depression.

Here are a few ways to observe Men’s Health Month:


  • Tweak your diet. Avoid those unhealthy fast food stops and cut back on alcohol this month. Increase your intake of healthy fermented foods such as sauerkraut and kefir.
  • Set some goals. Take stock of your health and think about where you want it to be. Do you want to lose weight? Gain muscle? Simply eat more vegetables? Set small and achievable goals and work with your doctor to make them a reality.
  • Remain active. Work out. Walk. Jog. Swim. Whatever makes you happy and healthy.
  • Get educated. Do your research. Learn about common health issues that are specific to men and how you might prevent yourself from illness or injury.


Consult your physician in a manner permitted under COVID-19 pandemic guidelines. Put the focus on your health this month and year-round.
