#16: Why Men’s Health is Important Too [PODCAST]

Oct 19, 2018

Do you ever wish that your partner, brother, father or uncle would start taking better care of their health?

I think most of us do!

Despite all of our encouragement and nagging, that man in our life would often still prefer not to visit the doctor, even when we’re both worried that those recent symptoms or habit changes could point to something more serious.

So how do we get through to our partners or loved ones? How can we encourage them to take care of their health as we’d like them to? Help is at hand!

This week I’ve been lucky enough to sit down for a chat with Mark Sleight- a qualified personal trainer, nutritionist and lifestyle coach based in Milton Keynes, UK.

Mark is such a down-to-earth, friendly and encouraging coach who understands first-hand the shyness men feel when it comes to dealing with health problems. He’s passionate about discussing those difficult and embarrassing health issues (listen out for the mention of his popular YouTube video!) that men have to have to deal with, including depression, stress and poor lifestyle choices and making a difference.

I know you’re going to LOVE what we were talking about.

Listen to this podcast to find out...

  • Why nagging plays such an important part in helping your man stay healthy (yes, really!)
  • How Mark faced his fears and went for the prostate health check (be ready for a giggle!)
  • The simple and straightforward ways you can help the man in your life improve his overall health and reduce stress
  • Why it’s not always a good idea to pop a headache tablet when you have a headache, and what you can do instead
  • How traditional gender roles often increase men’s stress levels (and how the blurring of gender roles sometimes doesn’t help either!)
  • Why everyone should start a strong meditation practice
  • How stress at work affects your man (and how it might be different for him than you)
  • The warning signs of prostate cancer, and what to do if you’re concerned
  • How premature ageing and illness are linked to high stress levels
  • Why 75% of all suicides in the UK are men and how we can help them deal with it
  • What Mark recommends when it comes to staying healthy

Plus plenty of giggles along the way…

As ever, grab yourself a nice warm drink, get comfy and listen to Mark’s wise words.
