HSE supports Men’s Health Week 2014
Men’s Health Week (MHW) runs this year from June 9 until June 15, supported by the HSE and a wide range of organisations nationwide. The aim of Men’s Health Week is to encourage men in Ireland to be aware of their own health and wellbeing, and to take action to take care of it.
Finian Murray, Men’s Health Development Officer with the HSE, said: ‘Men on the island of Ireland experience more ill-health than women, and have lower life-expectancy – male life expectancy (LE) is 75.1 years, approximately 5 years younger than that of females and, for certain groups of men who experience greater social deprivation, it is likely to be younger still.’

Encouraging people to be more active should be just that, increasing activity levels. It is not all about doing an exercise session a couple of times a week its about finding ways to be less inactive throughout the day. Stand up while you are on the phone, take a little break every hour to get a glass of water, climb the stairs etc. Do whatever you can to break up your periods of inactivity.
We are now offering a couch to 5km team competition for you and your employees to become more active. Its not about who runs the fastest but about who puts in the most effort. A team of walkers could beat a team of runners if they put in the effort. Everyone will learn more about themselves, try new things and make a few changes that will become long term healthy habits.
