June is Men's Health Month!

June is National Men's Health Month and in honor of this month, our health clinics at the Lake of the Ozarks are here to give all you men out there a few helpful health tips. If you are unhappy with your current physician and would like to try reaching out to a new one, consider Central Ozarks Medical Center. All locations are community practices, serving everyone from newborns to the elderly. We accept patients with and without insurance and offer a sliding fee scale based on income and family size.


Men's Health Tips


Tip #1
Establish a regular doctor.
It's important that you establish a regular doctor for many reasons, including:

  • Primary care physicians can prefer to see their patients regularly to better prevent major health issues from happening
  • Regular, annual doctor visits can help motivate you to lead a healthier lifestyle

Tip #2
Don't obsessively calorie count.
If you obsess over the number of calories you are eating you could be missing out on the vital nutrients your body needs.

Tip #3
Get your sleep!
No matter how busy your job or personal life is keeping you, make sleep a priority. You should be getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night. Not sleeping enough can lead to stress and weight gain.

Tip #4
Destress and find a healthy hobby.
Exercising can produce endorphins within your body, which can make you feel happier. Here are a few examples of healthy hobbies you could start:

  • Biking
  • Jogging (5Ks, Marathons)
  • Kayaking
  • Paddle Boarding
  • Walking
  • Swimming

Tip #5
Strengthen your close relationships.
Women can be known to better at this than men, but making the effort stay in touch with close friends and family members can be good for your overall emotional health. Try talking to your closest friends or family members weekly or having a nice meal or grabbing a drink with a buddy every once in a while. Be social and happy.
