June is New Zealand Men’s Health Month, and we’re encouraging all New Zealand organisations to get behind the initiatives put in place this month to look out for our men in our workplaces.
The theme is #MenStartTalking, and each week Men’s Health NZ have a different activity that you can put in place in your workplace that focuses on Men’s Health. They have a wealth of resources to send around your colleagues and posters for you to put up around your workplace.
Week 1: Get A Check Up
Week 2: Sugar Sux
Sugar is a cause of a number of many health problems like high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity, and half the time we don’t know we’re even eating it. Have a look at the food your eating this week. Try preparing your meals at home and swapping soda for water.
Week 3: Love Your Belly
Week 4: How’s Your Mate?
How are our mates doing? How’s their health? Maybe they’ve got a problem,
physical or otherwise, that they’re keeping to themselves instead of getting help for. So take a moment this week to ask your mate how he’s doing.
For more information, and Men’s Health Month resources, activities and posters, head to the Men’s Health NZ website.
