Hale County Hospital’s: Hospital Corner

Happy June from Hale County Hospital! As the first days of June are here, this new month not only brings the hot weather of summer, but also a reminder and emphasis of the importance of men’s health. Did you know that June is Men’s Health Month? It’s a time when we focus on helping our community take better care of yourselves. You might wonder, why is it important to dedicate a whole month to men’s health? Well, let’s take this June to empower the men in our community to take charge of their health journey. Taking care of your health means you can feel better, stay stronger, and enjoy life more.

We get it, life can get busy and sometimes prioritizing a doctor’s visit is hard. However, taking care of yourself doesn’t have to be complicated. In this article you can find tips about preventative health measures to keep you healthy, routine screenings, and information on why it’s important to take your health seriously. Here are some things that men can do to prioritize their health:

  • Get a check-up: Just like you give your car a check-up to make sure everything’s running smoothly, your body needs one too. Visiting your doctor for a check-up can help catch any health issues early, before they become bigger problems.
  • Eat better: You don’t have to make large changes all at once. Start by adding more fruits and veggies to your meals. They’re packed with vitamins and minerals that your body needs to stay strong.
  • Move more: Even a short walk around the block can do wonders for your health. Find something you enjoy doing, whether it’s playing basketball with friends or dancing to your favorite songs.
  • Take time to relax: Stress can take a toll on your health, so it’s important to take time to relax and unwind.

Why is it important for men to care about their health? Men are especially at risk for certain health conditions like prostate cancer, heart disease, and low testosterone. All can be minimized if men regularly see their doctor, get proper screenings, and take their health seriously.
