Movember: 5 things to do right now

1. Spend time with people who make you feel good.

Stay connected. Your friends are important and spending time with them is good for you. Catch up regularly, check in and make time.

2. Talk, more.

You don’t need to be an expert and you don’t have to be the sole solution, but being there for someone, listening and giving your time can be life-saving.

 

3. Know the numbers.

At 50, talk to your doctor about prostate cancer and whether it’s right for you to have a PSA test. If you are of African or Caribbean descent or have a father or brother with prostate cancer, you should be having this conversation at 45. Know your numbers, know your risk, talk to your doctor.

 

4. Know thy nuts. Simple.

Get to know what’s normal for your testicles. Give them a check regularly and go to the doctor if something doesn’t feel right.

 

5. Move, more.

Add more activity to your day. Do more of what makes you feel good.

Take a walking meeting

Park further away from the station

Get off the bus a stop or two earlier

Instead of the lift, take the stairs

Cycle to work instead of driving
