Giving Thanks for Men’s Health

The official Thanksgiving season is upon us, though what’s at heart now should be a year-round sentiment for everyone. Being grateful for the people and pleasures in your life is one of the best ways to support our mental health and strengthen our relationships with others.

I, for one, am most grateful for my husband and my two sons, who are my rock and my wings. I take care of myself so I can take care of them, and I couldn’t be who I am today without their support and encouragement. They are the lights of my life.

I am also thankful for their continued good health, that they take care of themselves and are the intelligent and vigorous men they are. I couldn’t be prouder.

Men don’t have to run a marathon every month or bench press 500 pounds to stay healthy — it’s much easier to accomplish than they may think.

Just making a few lifestyle changes can add up to big results. Eating a balanced, healthy diet including lean proteins, adding a couple miles to a favorite run or hike or offering to help a neighbor with yard work can bring tangible improvements for body and mind.

And men, you’re worth it!

Live well,
