As human beings we like to do things for discrete periods of time while giving the whole process a catchy name. Dry July, Octsober, and the latest but most popular, Movember. The objective is simple, spend a month growing a moustache as a way of raising awareness of men’s health issues. As a secondary objective, moustache growers will also be asking for anyone who is able to make a small contribution to the Movember cause, supporting research into various men’s health issues include the most prominent one, prostate cancer.
The thing about us men is that we rarely see a professional whenever we are experiencing health issues. We will live in denial, prolonging that inevitable visit to the doctor until we can no longer function or until its too late to do anything about. Call it stubbornness, call it simple male psychology, but whatever you call it, there is no denying that men die from treatable illnesses because they do not get a check up.
As I have been completing my Weight Loss Journey this month, men’s health issues have become far more prominent in my mind and it feels good to be doing something positive about my health. This Movember I want you to make an appointment with your doctor for a routine health inspection and check-up. It doesn’t take long, it doesn’t cost much, and it could save your life. If you have a few dollars to spare, please make a contribution to the Movember cause. You can find my MoSpace here: http://mobro.co/ryanl86
