2. Exercise the Core
Men who do regular crunches, planks, yoga, and exercises that focus on the core muscles (the abdominals, hip flexors, and lower back) suffer less lower-back and general mobility issues.
3. Eat a Fruit or Vegetable With Every Meal
And no, sweet potato fries and jalapeno poppers don’t count. However, if you aim to incorporate a fresh (or frozen) fruit or vegetable to every meal of the day; you’ll greatly reduce your chances of high cholesterol, vitamin-deficiencies, lowered immunity, weight gain, and digestive-tract cancers.
4. Exercise Banishes SAD
In winter, it’s easy to get the blues and many of us suffer from season affected disorder (or SAD) or another depression-related condition. However, men who exercise regularly reap the reward of nature’s happy drug—dopamine—which reduces stress, anxiety, depression, and negative thoughts.
5. Munch on Berries
Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries—oh my! Not only do they provide a low fat, nutritious snack or cereal topper, berries are high in vital compounds that improve blood circulation…to a certain set of family jewels. Meaning, that men who eat fresh or frozen berries a few times a week suffer less erectile dysfunction over time.
6. Make Two Cups of Joe The Limit
Most of us depend on our morning cup of coffee to get us going. Following that up with a coffee at lunch and again late-afternoon is not abnormal. However, men who drink more than 2 cups of caffeinated beverages (black or green tea, coffee, soda, or energy drinks) per day, gradually increase their heart beat by about a dozen beats per day—which can cause cardiovascular arrhythmia and other issues down eh road.
