Everyday Health Tips for Women

Here are everyday tips that women can do to help reach optimal health.

Foster a healthy diet: Try switching to a diet that’s as close to a natural food based diet. Make sure you eat your whole grains, high-fiber foods, choose leaner meats, cut back on dairy and avoid foods and drinks that are high in sugar, calories, fat and salt. Having a healthy diet can help you maintain a healthy weight while reducing your risk for a number of illnesses.

Refrain from bad habits: Refrain from bad habits and people with habits like smoking cigarettes or taking other drugs. If you choose to drink alcohol, only do so in moderation. Most research suggests that it is safe to consume one drink a day.

Consistently check for breast cancer: Despite the American Cancer Society no longer recommending monthly breast exams for women, you should still conduct self-exams starting around the age of 20. Women older than 30 should get yearly mammograms to detect any signs of breast cancer.

Exercise on a regular basis: Were you aware that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 cause of death among women in America? One of the most effective ways to reduce this risk is to keep your heart healthy and get plenty of exercise. Make sure you exercise at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week.

Reduce your stress: Mental health is vital for your well-being and women, regardless of being a grandmother, mother or daughter, all deal with a lot of pressure and stress that can take a toll on their health. Make sure you take a couple of minutes every day to relax and unwind and to let go of the stresses the day has caused you. You can also manage stress with physical activity, meditation and relaxation techniques.

Practice sun safety: We often take for granted the amount of time we spend in the sun. Excessive exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can cause skin cancer and expose us to free radical damage. Make sure you protect yourself by wearing sunscreen and make sure you check for skin cancer on a consistent basis. If you spot any changes in your skin or if you have sores that are not healing, make sure you speak to your doctor.

As a woman ages, her health needs change too. By keeping these tips in mind, you’ll be able to improve and maintain your health for the following years to come.
