In our last post, we discussed our first tips for staying healthy this summer, but we couldn’t cut it short at just 3! In today’s post, we discuss more tips for staying as healthy as possible in the remaining summer months.
At Men’s Vitality Center in Tucson, we’ve got the right treatments for every man’s needs. We proudly treat men of all ages and from all walks of life. From primary care doctors, to testosterone replacement therapy, we are the nation’s leader in men’s health. Your health is our number one focus.
Stick to Your Diet
Summers are full of BBQ’s, block parties, picnics, and plenty of other occasions to binge on junk food. It’s fine to treat yourself occasionally with an extra burger or root beer float, but keeping up with your diet should always be a top priority.
Beware of overindulging in alcohol this summer. Alcohol can dehydrate you, which can be especially dangerous on hot days when your water levels may already be lowered. Drinking too much can also lead to lower testosterone levels. Low testosterone is often a cause of unexplained weight gain, demotivation, low sex drive, chronic fatigue, and more. If you are already experiencing these symptoms, come to Men’s Vitality Center to talk with our specialists about testosterone replacement therapy.
If you don’t already have a solid workout routine, summer is the perfect time to start one! The warm weather creates a great atmosphere to be able to slowly work into a fitness plan. You can try and turn any activity into an exercise. If you’re at the zoo, make it a priority to walk to every corner of the park to get some extra steps in. Or if you’re having a picnic at the park, break out the football play some catch. On the extremely hot days, don’t overexert yourself outdoors. You could instead consider working out at your local gym or even following along with an at-home workout on the internet.
Take A Vacation
Summertime is an excellent time to get away from the everyday grind and get a little extra rest and relaxation. Vacations can be fun and exciting on their own, but they also have hidden health benefits. Time off helps to improve mental health, decrease stress, and lower blood pressure. Along the same lines, be sure to stay well-rested. In a post earlier this year, we looked at why sleep is so important to your overall health. Getting enough rest every day can help control weight gain and loss, improve emotional well-being, increase concentration and productivity, and increase your immune functions. Getting seven hours of sleep at the minimum is recommended so that you can set yourself up for a more successful and healthy day.
If you’re in need of a diet plan, workout routine, or even a regular health checkup this summer, Men’s Vitality Center in Tucson has your back. If your needs are more specialized, we’ve got you covered too. Our team is well versed in testosterone replacement therapy, sleep therapy, joint pain, and more. Give us a call today to set up your next appointment. We want to make sure that you are enjoying the rest of the summer to its fullest!
