Health and wellbeing are a very wide-ranging subject and one that if you have the right mindset coinciding with the correct actions, can dramatically improve your quality of life. Many men can suffer from a number of different health issues, be it physical or mental. We take health and wellbeing very seriously here at Cornerstone, so we thought we’d share some of our own tips and daily hacks.
Drink, But In Moderation
This may sound simple and we’re not going to lie, it can be a struggle for us too, but moderating your alcohol intake to no more than two units a day for men may shield you from cardiovascular disease, according to research. Just be sure not to overdo it, and if you don’t have risk factors or a family history, don’t use it as an excuse to start.

Studies suggest that gentlemen with strong bonding relationships are less likely to suffer from a stroke or heart disease. Having a strong network of friends and family around you, along with a tight bond with your partner can really improve your chances of a better and healthier life.

Society and general life have demanded that a man be some form of superhero, yet taking on a crisis in your life alone without help can cause a high degree of stress. The highly publicised fact that the biggest killer in men under 45 is suicide comes as no surprise, yet, for men, just being heard is a great way to alleviate the stress and worries of life. Talk to your close friends or family, someone you trust. Don’t just blurt out your issues to Dave in the pub.
Consider a Daily Multivitamin
A multivitamin is one of the best supplements anyone can take on a regular basis. These products contain all the essential vitamins plus important minerals to maintain good health.
