Unless seriously injured or ill, some men can’t be dragged into the doctor’s office without kicking and screaming.
June is Men’s Health Month. According to menshealthmonth.org, the official campaign states the goal is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.
The CDC suggests that during June men begin making their health a priority by exercising, eating right and following other healthy practices. Such healthy practices include:
Being able to exercise, socialize and enjoy nature while having fun is important to healthy lifestyles.
Parks are a great place to serve all of these needs and the mission of parks continues to intensify into the future.
July is Park and Recreation Month and it is important to realize how vital our parks are to the community.
According to Ruston Parks and Recreation’s website, their mission is to offer a diverse package of quality recreational programs, events and park experiences that improve on quality of life for all residents.
