I’m sure we all have a man in our lives – father, husband, boyfriend, brother, nephew, son – for whom we wish nothing but the best. We want them to be strong and fit and able to continue living their lives to the fullest for a long, long time. It’s not always easy to break down the “macho” barriers men build, sometimes to the detriment of their health and
wellness. Sometimes the discussions can be difficult – discussions about alcohol use, for example, or depression or their emotions. But if you love that particular man, you will make the effort to talk to him and draw him out and let him know that you love him and you want him to remain an important part of your life. Perhaps this issue of Health & Wellness magazine – with articles on men and alcohol, fertility and emotions and more – can help you spur a needed conversation with the special man in your life. That’s why we’re here, and that’s what we try to do – to help you learn about and maintain your health and, if necessary, the health of the people you love.
Here’s to your wellness,
