As we put the pandemic into the rearview mirror, now is the time to refocus on your health. We are halfway into the year, and it begs the question, how well have you done incorporating better dietary and physical activity habits into your everyday life? Understandably, just thinking of where to start can be overwhelming. If there is a desire to optimize the day-to-day quality of life but it feels as though low testosterone symptoms are holding you back, it may be time to get your testosterone checked.
Think about it like this, improved energy coupled with optimized testosterone levels mean more physical activity. You are then motivated to keep the improvements going so you gradually start to eat higher quality nutrient sources such as vegetables and fruit and less take-out and fast food. Overall, these little steps will put you in the right direction to start building better habits.
Speaking of habits, any Revibe Men’s Health clinician will likely tell you that the summation of habit outcomes trend towards the positive once testosterone levels are optimized, but awareness is the first order of business. All too often we hear from patients that they wish they had begun the simple process sooner or are surprised to realize that they could actually do something about the lack of vigor and spectrum of other symptoms being experienced. “Functions of the brain and nervous system can be affected, bone, muscle, fat and other factors that make up the body composition are detrimentally affected.”1 Let the team at Revibe Men’s Health help you shift the trajectory back towards the improvement of your optimal function.
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate,” said psychologist Carl Jung. In other words, you have to be intentional in connecting where you are currently to the person you want to be. Let this summer and a little help from Revibe Men’s health be that bridge.
