A Woman’s Guide to Boosting Her Health

It’s all a woman asks for. As she ages, she simply wants to look and feel like the best version of herself. No sallow skin, no signs of wrinkles and aging, no aching joints or illnesses that come with old age etc. – it can’t be too much to ask for right? But as the trials of life wear on the body and mind, maintaining this can be quite the feat. Luckily for you, we’ve prepared a guide that will help you eat, live and breathe healthy, reducing your chances of all of the above!

Dieting

You are what you eat- what a powerful saying. Maintaining a proper diet has a direct effect on how healthy we’ll be in the long run. From that glowing skin to reducing risk of diseases like osteoporosis, it can all be handled with the right diet. As your first step you’ll want to get access to a BMI calculator for women. This will give you an idea of how healthy your weight is according to your height and then you’ll know how to plan your diet, quantity wise. In general, incorporate plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, high-fibre foods and leaner cuts of meat into your meals. Don’t shy away from those multivitamins as well. You’ll find that the success of this step and the steps to follow depends purely on your determination and commitment. So, stay focused and do this daily so that it becomes a routine and your good health will be guaranteed.

Exercise

Finding the time and energy amidst the schedule of a working mum or a working woman alone for that matter is probably going to be your toughest problem but it’s worth remembering that exercising will keep you lean and fit, and not to mention it’s a leading combatant against heart disease, which is a prominent disease across the globe. Try incorporating at least 30 minutes of exercise each day. Consider taking up something de-stressing as yoga, make your runs/ bicycle rides a family exercise or a daily activity with friends. We all know it’s easy to lose motivation when exercising alone.

Avoiding risky habits

Need anything really be said of smoking and doing drugs? These are extremely hazardous for your health and there’s enough and more research as to why that’s so. If you want to boost your health, you’ll definitely have to drop these habits. As for drinking, this is yet another risky habit. But if you find that you cannot drop it altogether, various studies have shown that a woman can consume at least one drink a day safely. So, if you do drink, make sure to do it in moderation.

Safe sunning

People are just now realizing how deadly the sun’s rays can be. It can have devastating effects on the skin and can also give way to skin cancer. So, apply sunscreen if you happen to be going out into strong sunlight for more than even a couple of minutes. If you also notice any change in the size, colour or shape of any birthmarks, moles etc. or new, large red skin areas, make sure to consult a doctor as this is a symptom of skin cancer.

Following this guide on a daily basis will ensure that you have a lifetime of good health. Make sure to go into this with a committed mindset or you’ll find yourself relapsing!
