It’s that time of year again when men’s upper lips start sprouting weird and wonderful moustaches. November has now affectionately become ‘Mo’vember and globally men are taking on a challenge and hooking up with a charity that supports the awareness and treatment of Prostate cancer and other men’s health issues.
It’s a fun way to help a very serious problem. Prostate cancer affects 1 in 17 South Africans according to CANSA (The Cancer Association of South Africa) and is the number one cancer found in men too. Testicular cancer and men’s mental health issues, often associated with contracting cancers of this nature, are also part of this initiative.
Your health and your business are inextricably linked and so yes, it’s your business to protect your health – and your health is your business. As Virtual Assistants, we can assist with your business in many ways but when it comes to your health the ball is squarely in your court.
The only way we can assist is to offer some really good advice to assist you to protect yourself against contracting these cancers, or at least minimise the effects through early detection.
To reduce the growing number of cancers that are being detected and reported too late there are certain things you can do. Firstly CANSA recommends monthly self-examination of the testicles and most importantly, because Prostate cancer is so difficult to detect in the early stages, have regular medical examinations that include testing for Prostate cancer.
Lifestyle changes too can be greatly instrumental in the prevention of Prostate and other cancers and these always of course include taking measures to reduce obesity – the cause of many health issues.
The BMI of a healthy person should be under 30 and this is usually achieved through regular exercise (a minimum of 30 mins a day is recommended) and of course adopting a healthy low-fat diet of predominantly fruit and vegetables.
Stress, of course, is a common killer and usually the reason lifestyles get interrupted and healthy habits thrown to the wind. This is where V-Assist can really help. We are stress eliminators. We take on whatever you are overwhelmed by and help to maintain a healthy balance between your business and your lifestyle.
