We women, especially those of us who blog, are constantly talking about bringing to light women’s topics that have previously been taboo. For example, I have openly discussed my issues with sex drive, menopause, and finding proper breast support in lingerie and loungewear. Many of us have discussed body image issues and being real and authentic and proud of all of our imperfections. Isn’t it time we also granted men this same opportunity?

Hims is a company that is doing just that, opening the discussion around men’s health care and giving men permission to openly discuss things such as their health, their appearance, and their sex drive. So before we head into the second month of 2018, won’t you check out this quick health check list provided to me by Hims and schedule your annual examination soon.
Good health is one of the greatest blessings that we can receive in life. And all too often, it can be ripped out from under us without notice. So while we are blessed with good health, shouldn’t we take the best care of it that we possibly can?
Fo many people, January not only marks the beginning of a new year, but also signifies an opportunity to begin new habits. And many of these habits often include better self-care. How many people make New Year’s resolutions that include more exercise and better diet? But how many of those people actually stick to their resolutions? I am going to suggest that rather than setting goals that you may not actively set out to achieve, why not start small with a standard evaluation of your current state of health? I will be heading to my doctor in a few weeks for a full screening armed with a million questions about menopause. I will be ensuring that all of my tests are up to date including pap smears, mammograms (I did just have that done in October), colonoscopies, and blood work. I think you should all commit to an annual check up as well, if you haven’t already.
