Good health is not just the absence of disease. It’s more than that. It’s also about feeling good and functioning physically, mentally, and emotionally. For some people, being healthy means having no significant health problems (like diabetes or high cholesterol). Still, for others, it means having a positive outlook on life despite illness or disability.
Signs of Good Health in Men
Health isn’t just the absence of disease. It’s a combination of physical, mental and social well-being.
Healthy habits can help prevent disease:
- Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruit, vegetables and fiber-rich foods such as wholemeal bread or cereal.
- Get enough sleep – at least seven to nine hours a night is recommended for adults over 18 years old.
- Keep active with regular exercise such as walking or cycling every day (or at least three times per week). You could also try activities like swimming or dancing if you prefer these over other types of exercise – whatever suits your lifestyle and interests best.
Maintaining a healthy weight.
Weight loss is essential for men, especially those who are overweight or obese. You may want to lose weight for many reasons: you might be concerned about your health and the risk of heart disease and diabetes, or perhaps you want to improve your self-image and feel better about yourself.
If you’re struggling with weight loss, try these tips:
- Eat smaller portions at meals (see examples below).
- Make sure that at least half of your plate is filled with vegetables, fruit, or both!
- Choose low-fat dairy products instead of high-fat ones like cheese and butter.
Exercise is a vital part of good health. Regular exercise improves your heart and lung function, helps you maintain a healthy weight, and keeps bones strong. It also can lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels–and may even help prevent diabetes.
In addition to these physical benefits, regular exercise has been shown to improve mental health as well: it can boost mood; help people who have anxiety disorders or depression manage their symptoms more effectively; decrease stress levels; and increase self-esteem by giving people the confidence that comes from being physically fit.
Good sleeping habits
A good night’s sleep is an integral part of healthy living. Not getting enough sleep can lead to weight gain and other health problems like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Adults need 7-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night (including naps). You may have heard that 8 hours is the magic number, but some people may need less while others require more than 9 hours per night.
The best way to know how much sleep works best for your body is by paying attention to how sleepy or energetic you feel throughout the day–if there are times when you feel drowsy during the day despite getting at least six hours of shuteye at night, then maybe try going without an alarm clock so that your body learns what time it needs on its own.
Regular doctor visits
- Regular doctor visits are essential.
- How often should you visit the doctor?
- What to expect during your stay:
- You will be asked about your medical history, including any previous illnesses or surgeries.
- The doctor may perform a physical examination, which includes listening to your heart and lungs with a stethoscope, feeling for swelling in the abdomen (which could indicate inflammation), checking the blood pressure and temperature of both arms (to rule out infection), looking at the skin for rashes or sores that could indicate an infection underneath them (such as shingles).
- If there is any doubt about what is wrong with you based on these findings, they may order additional tests such as blood tests or X-rays.
What is the most common co-occurring disorder with addiction?
The most common co-occurring disorder with addiction is bipolar disorder. This mental illness causes extreme mood swings, from depression to mania. It often goes undiagnosed because it can be difficult to distinguish between symptoms of bipolar disorder and substance use disorder.
Another common co-occurring disorder with addiction is depression, which affects an estimated 1 in 5 people in the United States each year–and this number is growing as more people get help for their addictions.
Depression brings sadness and hopelessness that interfere with daily life activities like work or school; it also makes it difficult to enjoy things you used to enjoy before your depression started affecting your life (like going out).
Men diagnosed with drug addiction and mental illness are at higher risk for suicide than those without either condition–so if you notice any changes in behavior from someone who has been abusing drugs or alcohol (such as increased irritability), talk about these changes immediately.
What are high-functioning alcoholics?
You are a high-functioning alcoholic if you:
- Have trouble with relationships, including family and friends.
- Are unable to control your drinking.
- Drink despite knowing that it is causing problems in your life or the lives of others.
- Use alcohol to deal with stress or other issues in your life.
Good health is not just the absence of disease.
Good health is not just the absence of disease. It’s a state of physical, mental and social well-being. Good health means having the resources to cope with challenges and opportunities – feeling good about yourself; having a sense of purpose and direction; enjoying relationships with others; contributing to society by working productively or volunteering for community organizations.
Good health is not just about being fit enough to do what you want – it’s also about enjoying things without pain or fatigue getting in your way.
