Men, Have You Back-Burnered Your Health Needs?

For the Love of Dad

Father and his sons flying a kite at the beach. Father’s Day has officially come and gone. With all the celebrations of great men we witnessed, Family First Chiropractic Wellness Center began to wonder – how many of them are taking care of themselves?

Life can get busy, especially with children in the mix, and similar to women, men often prioritize the needs of the family before their own. Recently, we came across an article written by Brandi MacDonald that highlighted the statistics regarding the overall health of men. What did she find? A vast percentage of them believe they are healthy until a routine visit to the doctor proves otherwise.

How do we prevent sneaky heart attacks or cancer diagnoses?

Hindsight is usually clear. When many men and their families think back to life prior to a surprise illness, they recognize unhealthy, stressful habits and subluxations that most likely contributed to such a devastating outcome. By paying attention to our everyday activities as well as the physical, chemical, and emotional stressors that follow – we can better avoid early-onset sickness.

To all the incredible fathers out there, we love you and want to you to enjoy life to the fullest for years to come!

Change Your Life Today to Live A Healthier One Tomorrow

Practicing self-care is important! For the sake of yourself and your family, make sure you and your loved ones spend time taking walks, biking, trying exciting new whole foods, and making lasting connections. Put the technology away, grab some water, tell some jokes, and laugh together. When it comes down to it, the small things really are not small at all.

Aside from making healthy alterations at home, you can also encourage your family to quit bad habits, such as smoking, and practicing new ones, including daily exercise, regular reading, and of course – routine chiropractic care!

Why wait to rebuild your health one step at a time?

Back to the Men

As Brandi MacDonald notes – until men think differently, they will not act differently. It is time to change the conversation and remind our fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and brothers that it is not only okay to put their health first, but it is absolutely essential to living the long and happy lives they deserve!
