We women often put the health & happiness of our family way before us.
While that’s what we as super mommies, wives, sisters, and daughters do, neglecting self-care is also incorrect.
In fact, if you are in the best of health, you can only provide better care to the most important people in your life, from your kid to your husband and even your parents.
Regardless of your age and overall health status, in this article, we share simple yet effective health tips that you can easily incorporate into your life.
#1 Exercise Regularly
In the past few years, exercise has been a hot topic in health circles. It’s no wonder: A new study shows that people who exercise regularly are more likely to live longer and healthier lives than those who don’t.
Exercise also helps keep your bones healthy and reduces the risk of osteoporosis, a condition in which your bones become weak and brittle over time. It is also good for your heart, breathing, and circulation. It helps keep your blood pressure low while improving your circulation throughout the body.
However, certain exercises or overexertion can sometimes lead to muscle and ligament sprains, strains, tears, and even lasting knee pain. Do not ignore it; otherwise, with every passing day, the problem will worsen, and pain will accelerate to a level causing inconvenience to your daily life. If it does happen, scheduling an appointment with a knee specialist immediately. They will prescribe a proper treatment plan for your full recovery.
#2 Screening for Diseases
It’s important to have a regular check-up with your doctor. This can include blood tests, an ultrasound, mammography, and other tests to look for cancer and heart problems.
Many women as they cross their 20s are at risk of developing certain diseases because they have not yet had children or have had children at an older age. For example, they may be more likely to develop osteoporosis than men or women who haven’t had children. Women with breast cancer may also be at higher risk of developing another breast cancer later.
#3 Take Your Vitamins & Minerals
The best way to get the nutrients you need is through food. But if you don’t eat enough of it, supplementing can help.
You should take a multivitamin that contains all the B vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients you need each day — even if you already eat a healthy diet. A good multivitamin should also have folic acid (a B vitamin) or iron to boost energy levels.
If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, make sure your multivitamins contain folate (found in many foods, including broccoli and citrus fruits) or B12 (from animal products).
Multivitamins are available over-the-counter (OTC) at pharmacies and supermarkets or online. They are also available in many different forms, including chewable tablets, soft gels, liquids, and tablets with added nutrients to help you absorb the active ingredients better.
#4 Manage Your Stress
Stress is a normal part of life. But it can also be harmful if you let it take over your life.
Stress is your body’s response to an increase in demand. The body responds by increasing blood pressure, heart rate, and blood flow to the muscles, which increases energy requirements for the body.
The key to managing stress is recognizing when you are feeling stressed and then taking steps to reduce or eliminate it. You can do this through physical or stimulating activities such as listening to music, taking a bath, or meditating.
In The End…
There is no quick fix for a healthy body. However, by taking your nutrients, exercising daily, regular visits to your doctor, getting enough sleep — taking self-care — you can get in shape both mentally & physically.
