Recently, an article was published that focused on ten issues facing men that often go unrecognized. The article was intriguing for many reasons but one of the topics that was most concerning was the rate of depression in men and the toll that is taking on our society. FirstLantic decided to further explore the extent of the problem and the ways that more men can get the help that they deserve.
So, we have all heard the saying that “age is just a number” but what about when age becomes a pain – both physically and mentally? No matter how fit you are, there is a time when we start to feel those aches associated with older age and they aren’t simply in your head. But how does your head really affect your body? If you think positively, can you actually reduce the chances of becoming physical ill or can you recover more quickly from an injury? Well, the research says yes. A study conducted by John Hopkins expert Lisa R. Yanek, M.P.H., and her colleagues, found that even in people with a family history of heart disease, the positive thinkers were 13 percent less likely than their negative counterparts to have a heart attack or other coronary event. FirstLantic takes a deeper dive into how you can improve your connection between mind and body.
