June 2017 Lifestyle Letter

Bold. Brilliant. Brave. Beautiful. Could I possibly go on? Of course, I could! Even so, there still would not be enough words in any dictionary (traditional or urban) to express my whole heart when it comes to the important role of men in our communities. They’re our husbands, our guys or simply our “boo thangs.” They’re our fathers, our sons and our brothers. They’re our nephews, our uncles and our godfathers.

And nothing can be in your heart without also being in your mind. This being the case, it may not be a bad idea to take a closer look at the way in which we conceptualize things. Does the glass look half-empty or is it half-full? Is it partly cloudy outside or is it, rather, partly sunny? Get it?

Fellas, it is time to make your health a priority and if you haven’t already done so, pick up the phone and schedule your annual physical today. These five key screenings are recommended for men:
