Men’s health highlighted
June 12, 2012
With men’s health an often neglected topic among blokes, Aussie fellas are being urged to take their health by the horns and get back on track this International Men’s Health Week.
Running from Monday 11 June, the week devoted to boosting blokes’ wellbeing doesn’t have to be completely unenjoyable with these helpful healthy tips from White Pages® Online.
Get the worst done first
Was your last doctor’s appointment in another decade? Get it over and done with early this week by entering your regular doctor’s details into White Pages® Online to get the correct contact information and make an appointment.
If you don’t have a regular doctor, you can find one with the simple click of a button. Simply use White Pages® Health Shortcut to access major health providers, including medical centres, insurers and more.
Energise with exercise
Men’s health doesn’t have to be all prostate exams and blood pressure tests - being healthy is closely related to exercise and relaxation.
Set a goal to exercise three days this week and schedule your sweat sessions in your diary. Look up the details of your local gym using White Pages® Business Search to enquire about hiring a personal trainer to set you on the right path.
Making exercise a habit is often the hardest part, so be sure to pick an activity you enjoy. Like a round of golf on the weekends? Hit the driving range at your local course after work, making sure to book a spot by getting the club’s contact details off White Pages® Business Search.
Spoil those sore muscles and reward this week’s hard work with a weekend massage. Don’t be ashamed to indulge in a soothing treatment involving nice-smelling oils – tell the boys it is an essential stress-reducing health treatment. If scented treatments are a bit too girly, try seeing a chiropractor for some spinal maintenance. Ask a loved one if they can recommend a name, and enter it in White Pages® Business Search to get the correct contact information to book an appointment.
For some real inspiration to get your health back on track, check out the cover of the White Pages® Melbourne Business and Government featuring Movember co-founder Travis Garone. He’s helped raise more than $300 million for men’s health programs worldwide. That funding could help you feel better.
No matter how much you might have neglected your health in the past, White Pages® can point you to where you can get help to get back on track this International Men’s Health Week. After all, good health is the best gift a man can give himself and his loved ones.
