Men’s Health: ATTENTION MEN FOLK!

Ok MEN FOLK!

Real Talk! Plain Talk! You MEN FOLK ( I’m from Texas and I’m a little fussy right now) have a SUPER BAD HABIT of ignoring the signs when you might be sick or getting sick! This is why insurance  is cheaper for you and why you die quicker than women! But I am here to tell you, that “I can push through it” attitude isn’t cool and should be scrubbed from your psyche! It isn’t fair to those of us who have to take care of your raggedy butts! Y’all act like the world is ending when you get a hang nail! So, can you imagine how y’all would act, God forbid, if you had a heart attack, cancer, or stroke??? Well I do! It’s not cool! Patience goes out the door and y’all get mad when things don’t happen at the speed of yesterday! While y’all are acting like that, you are forgetting that YOUR STUBBORNNESS is what got you in the mess you may be currently in or may find yourself in!

My Advice to Men

Let me give you a couple pieces of advice:

1. Get REGULAR CHECK-UP’S – I know some of you may not have insurance. Trust me, I know how you feel on that! BUT DO NOT IGNORE ANY SIGNS OR SYMPTOMS! Save a few pennies for your doctors visit. I know you have at least one day off a week that you can take to go see a doctor or go to one of those neighborhood clinics. Request a physical to see what the state of your health is.

2. EXERCISE and HEALTHY DIET– Once you have found out what may or may not be ailing you, adopt a new lifestyle. PRAY you don’t have anything life-threatening that can’t be fixed with a balanced diet and exercise.You don’t have to join a fancy gym or hire a nutrition expert. Limit your bread and potato intake. Add more fish, chicken, and fresh veggies to your diet! WALK! Just WALK! That’s great exercise! It covers all your body parts. If you want muscular definition, get a few free weights or use the internet to find muscle-building exercises that won’t break the bank or your back!

If y’all do these two SIMPLE things, your wives, girlfriends, children, and friends will love ya!! They will appreciate not having to rush y’all to the emergency room because your heart may be shredding or your face is melting from a stroke! So, do us all a favor and TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF! Please and thank you!
