Women, we do a lot of things for a lot of people, every day, day in and day out.
But there are a few things we have to do for ourselves to take care of our health and well-being, and it’s time they became mandatory.
It’s staying healthy.
Living full out means living with a little care. And here’s a few things you can do to ensure it.
- Visit the Doctor
Depending on how sexually active you are, visit your doctor for a routine pap smear every 1-3 years.
- Go on birth control
And it’s not just to help you avoid pregnancy. Birth control pills can help you lower risk of uterine and ovarian cancer while helping regulate your menstrual cycle.
- Get some sleep
Sleep can help you de-stress. Sleep can help you function at optimal levels. A lack of sleep can put you at greater risk of heart disease…so give it a little rest, please?
- Exercise well
Working out shouldn’t just stop at cardio. Mix in some resistance training and weight training to help fight diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis.
- Don’t go overboard with the calcium
Too much of it can increase the risk of kidney stones and. If you’re under 50, shoot for 1,000 milligrammes per day. If you’re over-50 women should be getting 1,200 milligrammes per day mainly through diet .
- Say no to diets
Because it’s time we said hello again to a good old-fashioned balanced meal. Eat everything in moderation, and absorb all the goodness your body can take in. Don’t skimp out.
- Genetic Testing
Get genetically tested to identify any health risks you may face, and take necessary preventive measures.
