No matter what stage of life you’re in, you’re bound to experience stress from time to time. Stress is a natural part of life. It is a part of your body’s way of dealing with external threats. But our automatic stress responses were originally evolved to help us fight off saber-tooth tigers – not meet a work deadline or make a presentation. Unfortunately, even if you’re just trying to get through traffic on time, your body responds as if you’re in mortal danger.
June is Great Outdoors Month, and a great time to venture out to enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer than this warm and wonderful time of year.
The days are warm and it’s easy to get active. Instead of spending your downtime away from work or school doing things you are familiar with, why don’t you consider some new activities this Summer? Getting involved in these new activities could be a great way to spend some time together as a couple, a family or with friends.
Members are encouraged to lace up their sneakers and take at least 30 minutes out of their day to get up, get outdoors and get active. It’s a great way to raise your awareness of the importance of physical activity and to get your family, friends and co-workers noticing a healthier way of life.
Below are a few of FHCP Staff’s top picks for best walking trails and outdoor activities in Central Florida!
Do You Have a Spot to Add?
When it comes to your health — and the health of your male loved ones, including sons, brothers, fathers, uncles and grandfathers – being the “strong, silent type” is never the best way to go. This Men’s Health Month (held in June each year since 1994, with this year’s Men’s Health Week June 15-21), why not take a look at where you are and what more you can do to protect your good health?
Lightning storms can be unnerving experiences, whether you are indoors or outside when they occur. If you are outside enjoying an activity this summer or into the fall, be sure to check the forecast before you head out. Check the sky occasionally and be ready to seek shelter if you hear thunder or start to see thunder clouds forming.
Men’s Health Month is a time during which we want to heighten awareness of preventable health problems that affect men.
With so many things that you have to look after, it can be easy to put health matters on the back burner. Many men have been taught from the time they were very young that the best thing to do when something hurts or is bothering them to “suck it up” and keep going, that it’s not manly to give in to emotions. When it comes to health, however, issues that are ignored tend to manifest in other ways and can and do turn into bigger problems.
So you’ve decided to quit smoking? Congratulations!
Taking part in “World Quit Day” will help you improve your overall level of health, and save money as well. But quitting isn’t so easy. Once you’ve made it through the first 24 hours without a cigarette, you need to do it again – and again and again – to break the habit.
