June is Men’s Health – Take the Challenge (Week Four)

June 21, 2021

Happy June Guys!

It’s Men’s Health Month!

The American Urological Association and the Urology Care Foundation, as well as your favorite Austin urologist, have challenged men to commit to making healthy choices that are not only great for overall health, but especially men’s urologic health!

Austin Urology Institute is accepting the challenge. Join us! This month, there are four weekly “Get Up and Go” challenges to improve your urologic health.

Each week, we will post a blog with your weekly challenge. This is your final week! Here’s your challenge for week four.

Get Up and Go Challenge- Week 4: Get Up and Go Outdoors!

Your challenge this week is to commit to Get Up and Go Outdoors!
Go get outside and hike, walk around the lake, take that trail, walk in the park, paddle board, kayak, fish, camp, go for a run… basically commit to any activity that takes you outdoors every so often to get away from the hustle, bustle and stress of everyday life.
Spending time in nature and improved mental health have been linked in multiple studies noting that anxiety and depression are decreased by time spent outdoors.
Better mental health contributes to better overall health which includes urologic health.
