Often, men’s health or illness can be the result of their lifestyle and lifestyle choices. Poor lifestyle choices can lead to the early onset of diseases and a shortened life. Alternately, improved choices can help prevent or reduce the likelihood of a disease or disorder arising or impacting your health.
Men can be poor at both understandings and managing their specific risk factors.
1. Eating unhealthy food
Studies reveal a diet that relies heavily on red meats, trans fats, sugar, and dairy products could negatively affect male health. Most men don’t like to cook and prefer more processed foods and meat in their diet.
Eating a lot of fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants and vitamins, nuts, is more important for them. Eating a healthy diet increases the men’s sexual potency.
Teaching kids what to eat and not eat in schools is more important than teaching maths. Since not knowing math may hamper career but not knowing what to eat will may cause early death.
2. Excessive alcohol drinking
Moderate alcohol drinking may be fine. Excessive alcohol consumption will lead to loads of health issues. Alcohol consumption causes reduced libido and impotence.
Drinking alcohol is also associated with mental and behavioural disorders, alcohol dependence, liver cirrhosis, some cancers and cardiovascular diseases, as well as injuries resulting from violence and road accidents.
3. Heavy smoking
Male impotence is caused by cigarette smoking. Smoking can damage your blood vessels, since impotence is often a result of poor blood supply to the penis.. Smoking causes stroke, lung diseases, cancer, heart disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Which can be easily avoided if we reduce smoking or just stop smoking.
Try to get some nicotine replacement therapy like nasal spray or inhaler. Avoid places of triggers for smoking like parties and bars.
4. Lack of Exercise
Studies have found that a sedentary lifestyle and obesity can make a reduced libido even impotent since obesity increases estrogen levels and lower testosterone levels.
So exercise is the best remedy for it. Men need to walk 30 minutes daily and should try HIIT training or aerobics to reap the benefit of lowering estrogen and increased testosterone. Exercise makes men smart and handsome liked by women.
5. High stress
Personal, professional, and relationship stress is the main cause of impotence in men’s. Stress affects the brain signals to the penis that increase blood flow for an erection thus causing impotence.
Exercise, a healthy diet and good sleep can reduce the stress but sorting out the cause behind the stress is needed in order to be potent. Reduced stress will enhance your mood and help you have good and productive time.
6. Drugs overuse
Men are more likely to use illegal drugs through their peer group than women, who are often introduced to drugs by men. Many illegal and legal drugs can make male impotent, side effects in the long term, even immediate death in extreme cases .
Long term use of some drugs can cause long-term changes in the brain, which leads to mental health problems like aggression, paranoia, depression, anxiety and hallucinations.
So men who want to have good libido and a good life need to avoid all drugs immediately. Since the side effects of those drugs are not worth the benefits.
7. Car accidents
Car accidents are a common cause of death among men. Men should always wear seat belts, follow the speed limit. Don’t drink and drive, and don’t drive while sleepy. Don’t multitask while driving, focus on driving only when driving.
Lots of men are doing suicide because of depression and other conditions. Men with depression will have reduced libido which can worsen the depression symptoms. If you have depression don’t get panicked it takes time to reduce symptoms and things to fall in line.
The risk causing suicide in men are:
Physical or sexual abuse
Loss of a loved one
Identifying each condition and solving the problem smartly will effectively remove the cause for suicide.
Exercise is a good way to release hormones to reduce symptoms of depression. Eating a healthy diet and good sleep will help get over the situation.
9.Lack of purpose in life
Some factors driving purpose driven life includes:
Good family and relationships
Active in community
Learning and teaching skills
Taking part in activities and hobbies.
Purpose driven life will help men to reduce stress, improves relationships this in turn will promote creativity and create a conducive environment that promotes healthy life thus reducing many negative consequences like binge eating, binge alcohol drinking, drugs and unhealthy sexual activity.
10. Pessimism and men
Plenty of research finds that pessimistic people have a high risk of heart disease, stroke, and mental illness. Pessimistic people also have a high risk of early death from cancer and infection.
How can men be optimistic?
Reframe situations. Some men when confronted with difficulties, they tend to only view the negative aspects of the situation. To reframe it, search for positive aspects. Is there anything you can learn from the situation?
Set goals. Set goals that are achievable and change it when needed. Research suggests that setting realistic goals and achieving improves optimism.
Positive aspect. At bedtime think about the positive aspects of your day like things that went well, made you happy and proud.
Practice gratitude. Focus on thanking for the positive aspects of your life, which include family members, friends etc.
Cement social relationships. A strong real social network can include spending time with close friends, or participating in regularly scheduled group or community activities. Focus on spending time with positive and supportive people.
11: Bad company
When you’re in a good friendship, it boosts your immune system. But toxic friendships are sickening. Bad friends can drain mental energy and make you feel miserable.
So find good friends and enjoy their company and live a healthier life.
12: Bad spouse and relationship
Men are rightly blamed in all bad relationships since most men lack empathy, don’t actively listen, they are dishonest, narcissistic, and don’t communicate well with partners.
So if men want to have a healthy life they should improve in these fronts to make relationships work and of course there may be some rare exceptions where women make mistakes.
Make good friends who influence you positively, and on whom you can rely when things get tough. Take pride in yourself. Do not let others trample over you. Take care of both physical and mental health. Live a happy and fulfilling life with purpose.
