Father's Day is around the corner, and along with it comes Men's Health Awareness Month.
June 12th-18 is when we recognize the importance of men's health and wellness, and there is no better time to encourage Dad to take care of himself! Fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, sons...men are important parts of our lives, and making sure they are at their best matters to us.
So, how can you encourage the guys in your life to put themselves first this June? We have some great gift ideas that make a perfect Father's Day surprise and encourage him to put his health at the top of the priority list.
We're sure he would love:
- New sneakers! Dads love a good pair of running shoes, and as much as he might be attached to his old, worn out favorites, it's probably time for something new. Running shoes, especially if worn regularly for exercise, tend to lose their support by (approximately) 6 months. Buying him a new pair is a great way to encourage him to keep up with his routine exercise, or prompt him to start! Bonus if you make it a point to exercise with him as a way to spend quality time together!
- A modern water bottle. Consuming enough water each day is a challenge for many of us. If the man in your life is struggling to get down his ounces, try a water bottle he'll love so much that he WANTS to drink out of it constantly. Whether he's more of an outdoorsy, adventure-seeking guy, or prefers to be at the coffee shop or in his office, there are plenty of options that keep water cold, refreshing, and easy-to-drink.
- A membership to a local gym or fitness center. Not everyone enjoys hitting the streets at home in Florida's heat for a morning run, or burning calories by exercising in their own living room. A gym membership offers the opportunity to exercise in ways that are fun, engaging, and social. Lifting machines, equipment for cardiovascular health, fitness classes, and even swimming are available for men (and women!) who want to better themselves physically and have fun while doing it.
- Workout wear. It's easy to feel self-conscious if you're heading out for some exercise wearing stained t-shirts and worn out shorts. New gear makes you feel confident when you step out! What's more, modern workout wear has benefits like moisture-wicking fabric, extra stretch, and functional pockets to make working out easier...and more stylish...than ever before!
We're wishing dads everywhere the BEST Father's Day.
We urge you to talk with the men in your life about staying healthy and taking care of themselves so they can take care of the ones they love. In addition to exercise and wellness practices, keeping up with annual visits for men's health are important for screening and catching any concerns. Another easy way you can show dad that you support him (and his health) this June? Take pest management and lawn maintenance off his plate! Country Boy Pest Control provides a full range of pest removal and management services including inspections, infestation elimination and prevention, and rodent control. For your lawn, we provide lawn sprays, direct spray mosquito treatments, both pre and post-emergent weed control, and SO much more. Make dad's to-do list a little shorter this month as you celebrate Men's Health Awareness!
