Men’s Health Week, 15th-21st June

Men’s Health Week
Mental Health: Inactive men are 60% more likely to suffer from depression than those who exercise.
Sleep: Men who sleep 7-8 hours a night have a 60% decreased risk of a fatal heart attack than those who sleep five hours or less.
Nutrition: Getting your 5-7 servings of fruit and veggies a day is as simple as 1 apple, ½ an avocado, 1 stalk of celery, ½ a grape fruit and 5 pieces of broccoli! Drinking: Those who drink no more than 4 to 10 alcoholic drinks a week have a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Drinking more than 10 a week almost doubles the risk.
Exercise: Men who climb 50 stairs or walk just 5 blocks a day may lower their risk of a heart attack by a whopping 25%.
For support, try chatting to a neighbour, friend or family member. Or call either of the below helplines – stay safe, and know that you are not alone.
