Mens Health Over 50
The majority of men between the ages of 48 to 55 years old start to experience a decline in their health if you think of this in a positive way this is your body warning you to make some healthy changes in your life. Women this age seem to naturally make healthy changes and adjust to this part of their lives where as men more often do not make adjustments until they are forced too by health problems. My life was much different than the majority of men, I was forced to make changes in my 40’s. Actually, my body was giving me early warning signs in my mid-thirties, but like most men I ignored these signs as just a part of getting older. The majority of men will experience at least one chronic health issue in their fifties if they do not make the changes needed they will more likely experience other health problems in the near future. This article is all about your health concerns in your fifties and how to adjust your life to avoid early health problems which could affect you very seriously before you ever reach your senior years.
First Warning Signs
Depending on your lifestyle will determine what age you will experience your first warning signs, it is possible to live a very healthy lifestyle and still experience early warning signs. The majority of people are receiving early warning signs and just do not acknowledge them as anything to be concerned about. Some people are in denial while others think it is just normal signs of aging. Everyone experiences early warning signs, but everyone does not receive the same signs. Some people will experience physical health signs while others will receive mental heath signs, your signs will start out very minor and gradually increase as you age, this is one of the biggest reasons many of us do not realize there is anything for us to be concerned about.
As I shared with you, everyone does not experience the same warning signs, but there are some which are very common among the majority of people. I will share with you these common warning signs, most of these most people will experience early in the beginning of their health decline. Think of these as a wake up call to get your life back in track when you adjust your lifestyle early enough you can manage these health problems. One of the biggest problems with men is most including myself rarely see their doctor before they have serious health problems, all men no matter how healthy you might be should be seeing a physician regularly by the time you reach your mid-thirties. This is the time when your bodies are starting to decline, usually not enough most of us really notice.
High Blood Pressure
Brain Functioning Signs
The majority of people today are experiencing brain functioning issues way before any physical symptoms are noticed, one reason for this is many people take over-the-counter drugs which eases our physical symptoms such as our minor aches and pains. Today most of us experience anxiety even at an early age, many people experience depression off and on with our high stress lifestyles. When these start to become problems, they will begin to last longer periods than when we were younger, these signs are often not taken seriously simply because we presume they are from the extra stress we are dealing with at that time. Many people at this time in their lives are pushing themselves with their careers and financial obligations, another biggie especially for men is worrying about how they will ever be able to retire. Many men do not share their worries with others, not even with their spouses so not to have them worrying as well. Men have too much stupid pride, they have this strong desire to solve the family problems all on their own.
Longer Periods Of Depression
Loss Of Interests
