Around the world, and men die an average of six years younger than women, largely due to reasons that are preventable. Take a look at the list below to see how you can make positive changes to your life, thanks to the support of Movember.
1. Spend time with your favourite people
It is important to have, and stay connected to your best mates, whether they are family or friends, it is important to make time. Catch up regularly, and ask how each other are, with meaning.
2. Talk more, listen more
Research shows that we’re here for our mates, but that we don’t rely on them ourselves. You don’t have to be an expert or the only solution.
3. Get yourself checked out
At the age of 50, it is important to talk to your doctor about prostate cancer. Do this at 45 if you’re black, or have a father or brother with prostate cancer.
4. Examine your bits and pieces
Get to know what’s normal for your body. Check for irregularities, or lumps and bumps regularly, and if something doesn’t feel right, go and see your doctor.
5. Get up and get moving
Being more active and finding ways to move more have been proven to help both mentally and physically. It can be as simple as going for a walk rather than driving.
