As men, the topic of our health is something we typically don’t want to talk about, especially when we are young. We are taught to be strong, to be tough, to push through pain and discomfort. To do otherwise is a sign of weakness.
Nothing can be further from the truth. Simply put, you can’t be available and present for those you love, nor can you make the impact in the world you desire to make, if you are not healthy mentally and physically. As such, having a long-term strategy for maintaining your health is one of the most important and wisest decisions you can make as a man.
It’s Never Too Early!
In fact, the best time to start thinking about your health as a man is when you are young. If you wait until you are older, or until you have a serious medical condition, it may be too late. However, if you start planning and implementing a strategy that leads to better long term health outcomes now, you can do your part to ensure you’ll be available and healthy for those who depend on you over the long term.
