Men being the traditionally more active breadwinners for their families, their healthy lifestyle is mostly substituted to their continuous sacrifice for the best of their families. They get no time for clinical check ups, no time for exercises, no time to relax and figure out their lives and as this keeps on happening, fatigue alongside high stress levels sets in and worse, health related complications become a norm. To avoid all this and to express love to our fathers over 40, we have compiled a list of some of the top tips they can engage in to stay healthy.

It goes without saying that the more you practice a healthy lifestyle the more your body stays healthy. At this age when your body tissues and muscles start to wear out, you need to take more vitamins to help you bolster up your immune system as well as shore up your bones. Proteins are a must to help build your body since you are required to exercise. Make fruits your habit, make a fresh juice, eat the fruits raw and you should have a zeal for salads.
The importance of water can’t be ignored in the quest for a healthy lifestyle. Water gets to hydrate your body organs and keeps them healthy all day. A good habit to help you achieve this is always having a water bottle with you all times.
2. Regular exercises
Training your body to perform exercises helps your body in muscle building, maintaining body density and keeps your bones stronger. You don’t actually have to do the strenuous exercises(weight lifting) on each session rather you can substitute that with morning runs/jogs, squats, planks and more healthy fitness exercises. This exercises give you the added advantage to counter fight the complications associated with aging.

All this ways and more will be key to relaxing your body and that’s why you are advised to make an habit and get involved in either one of them on a daily course.
5. Increase your testosterone levels
For men, checking and maintaining a required/high level of testosterone level will be key in your 40’s. As much as your fertility gets balanced, your testosterone levels will boost your libido, erectile dysfunction and your sperm quality. All this summed up together will give you and your partner a quality bedtime which at this age is vital in mending your relationship and shouldn’t be ignored.
