Ladies – let’s focus on you! After all, it IS Womens Health Day so let’s learn how to lead a healthier life – whatever your age. Here are a few things you can focus upon to help keep yourself in tip top condition:

Promote Womens Health and Get Active

Exercise is a no-brainer. It releases endorphins to help elevate mood, improves the cardiovascular system and builds strength whilst toning the body. With so many plus sides to exercising, don’t forget to add some time in your busy daily schedule to workout and feel great!

Promote Womens Health and Eat Healthily

Firstly, drink plenty of water. This is will help keep you hydrated as well as help wash away daily toxin build-up within the body. This should also help keep skin clear, hydrated and supple, as well as the body functioning optimally.

Eat a range of foods including all food groups and their recommended daily allowances. This will ensure your body receives all the nutrients it needs to function daily and to help maintain overall health. Nutrient deficiencies can lead to conditions such as brittle bones, fatigue, hair loss, digestive issues not to mention bad skin.

Diet is especially important during and after the menopause, as decreased levels of oestrogen can result in low bone density and incidences of osteoporosis are high amongst menopausal and post-menopausal women. This is another reason why it is important, as a woman, to eat a nutritionally balanced diet.

Promote Womens Health and Pay Attention to Your Mental Health

This includes promoting good sleep patterns and managing stress. We have previously mentioned the importance of mental health though our other blogs, but in case you missed the references, here is why good mental health is important.

Women juggle many aspects of life including home and work. Pressures from both can cause stress.

Stress is detrimental to overall health. It raises cortisol levels in the body which can have an adverse effect upon health including high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and osteoporosis, weight gain and tiredness to name a few.

Developing good sleep habits is the first step to helping reduce cortisol levels in the body. So in order to sleep better at night do exercise daily and make a set time to go to bed every night to encourage a sleep pattern. We recommend 9pm, and from that time – no screen time, do some relaxation techniques such as meditation or read a book, then lights out by 10pm. We sleep best during 11pm-2am so you want to be sure to be in a deep sleep by then.

Learning the art of meditation or other relaxation techniques that appeal to you, can help you learn to manage stress, allowing you to simply get on with your day.

As a woman, you have a lot to do and even more to think about during the day, but if you find time to focus on you and your needs daily, you should remain a healthy, happy woman.
