June is Men’s Health Month
Celebrated nationally each June, Men’s Health Month helps raise awareness and educate on the importance of men’s health.
It’s important to consider men’s health from a holistic perspective. Focusing narrowly on only certain aspects of wellbeing can lead to unbalance and deficiencies that present themselves, mentally, physically, and financially.
Depression, anxiety, and stress affect a large number of men. However, men are often less likely to recognize symptoms, seek emotional support, or pursue treatment.
Did you know…
- 34% of men report feeling stressed and under pressure
- 87% of rough sleepers are men
- 33% of men over age 20 have hypertension
- On average, men’s lifespans are 5 years shorter than women
Despite this, men see the doctor only half as often as women.
Often overlooked financial health is a key factor in both mental and physical wellness.
Poor financial health can:
- Lead to higher blood pressure, digestive issues, and disrupted sleep
- Create stress, anxiety, and depression
- Lead to unhealthy coping behaviors such as overeating, drinking or drug use.
Plus, these physical effects often go untreated as those suffering from financial hardship are less financially able or willing to visit a doctor.
So, what can we do?
This month provides an opportunity for continued education, resources, and encouragement for men to care for themselves holistically: mentally, physically, and financially. Holistic wellness takes a holistic lifestyle. It takes products, programs, and people.
