Fathers, Live a Long and Healthy Life

fathersday

You are a hero. You are a leader. You are a husband, a father, a brother, and a friend. You wear many different hats. Everyone needs you around for a long time. Are you looking to get healthy and stay healthy? Pay attention and set yourself up for a long and healthy life.

Maintain a strong core. Your body’s core, also commonly known as your torso, supports your entire body. Therefore, a strong means less injury and less pain elsewhere, especially your back!

Your posture is also greatly affected by the strength of your core. Without strong abdominal muscles to help hold your back, shoulders, neck, and head into their proper positions, you’ll find yourself slouching. This may cause pain and injury throughout your body.

Stretching and weight training are two ways you can help your core be as strong as possible. There are levels of exercises appropriate for anyone, from gentle stretching to heavier strength training programs.

Start with getting your spine checked, get any subluxations taken care of, and then begin building a strong core.

Take care of your heart. Cardiovascular health is crucial. Prioritize your cardio exercise, eat fiber, monitor your salt intake and pass on the sugar so your heart can be as strong as possible.

Pay attention to prostate health. Prostate cancer is all too common for men, so get your zinc, vitamin C and limit the trans saturated fatty foods. Remember your prostate exams should start between ages 40-50 depending on your family history. Getting a baseline helps monitor changes along the way.

Cheers to blessed and healthy life!
