Hence, we have a fate to take care of different jobs at a time. Thus, we are bound to encounter with different illness too. We ignore the slightest symptoms of illness – mental as well as physical. But in current situation, these ignorances will only worsen your health. As a women, you should compulsorily adapt to a healthy lifestyle. And here are 10 steps you can take to make your lifestyle a healthy one!

1. Eat A Balanced Diet

Ignore excess of junk food, oily food etc as these are unhealthy for you. It even affects your body shape adversely. We should have a balanced diet which has enough protein, carbohydrates, fibres etc. Green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits, pulses, nuts etc should me made an essential part of your diet.

A balanced diet will help your body to have high defensive power, thus mental health also improves. Women should give more importance to calcium rich food too. Instead of having high amount of food all at once, have small amount of food at regular intervals throughout the day.
Breakfast is very important also. Fruit varieties, fruit juice, egg, milk, bread should be made a part of your breakfast.

2. Drink More Water

A minimum of eight glasses of water is a must everyday. It helps to get the  toxins out of the body. For flawless skin, it is a must that you drink enough of pure water.

Sleep regularly for at least 8 hours everyday. You must have the feeling that your body had enough rest, once you wake up from sleep. Avoid late night parties. You must be keen on your sleeping habits. Don’t have alcoholic drinks before sleep. Long nap in the afternoon is not permissible. If you are adamant that you want to sleep in the afternoon, sleep for about 30-45 minutes only so that your sleep pattern at night does not get affected.

4. Get A Dental Checkup Done at Regular Intervals

Consult your dentist twice a year. For a general healthy body it is a must that you have a dental checkup after every 6 months. Poor oral hygiene leads to various serious gum problems like tooth decay, bad breath, tooth loss etc. If you do not treat them regularly with proper treatment, they can leave negative impacts on your overall body too. Brush twice a day. Floss is also important and we often ignore it.

5. Visit A Gynaecologist

We visit a gynaecologist only when we suffer from any disease or irritation. If we identify the problems soon enough, we could relieve them with proper treatment. Cervical cancer and other serious diseases can be cured easily with the regular checkups by the gynecologist. You can get advice regarding birth control, intercourse and  STDs too.

6. Maintain Self Hygiene

Self hygiene helps you to stay away from various diseases. Your hands and body should be clean every time. Cover your face when you are sneezing. Use cotton underwears only. Wash your private parts and maintain the pH balance using a vaginal wash.

7. Exercise More Often

Without exercise, our body tends to accumulate excess body fats in the body. Hence, we get various diseases too as a result. Exercise also helps you to prevent ageing. Exercise daily for a minimum of 30 mins. Climb steps, walk, swim, dance, join a gym and workout regularly. You can adapt to yoga and aerobics too. Exercising helps to kick out stress from your body along with the excess body fat. Instead of taking it as a boring job, make it enjoyable and seek fun. Play on the music, forget the heavy to-do list for the day for sometime, wear bright and colorful comfortable dresses to gym and enjoy your workout.

8. Keep A Check on Medicines

If you are using any medicines, be regular with it. Do not use antibiotics in excess. Women tend to use antibiotics as they are a quick fix to those pains which keep them from their house/office chores. If you are using oral contraceptive pills, consult your doctor before popping-in any other tablet. Have medicines ONLY as per doctor’s advice during pregnancy. Stick to what your doctor says regarding your health and medicines under all conditions.

9. Protect Your Skin

Excess of sun exposure will lead to skin cancer and other skin diseases. The process of ageing gets paced up due to the ultraviolet rays. Always use a sunscreen whenever you are going to face the sun. Hot weather also adds on to ageing as it makes the skin dry. Make CTM a part of your daily routine and stick with it, just like how you brush your teeth everyday! Eat plenty of fruits and veggies and drink sufficient water. This helps to improve the brightness and softness of your skin.

10. Stress A Little Less Each Day

I know it’s really hard because no one purposefully and knowingly welcomes stress to their lives. But don’t you think we all get stressed even for petty issues? Those unpleasant situations at our home and workplace create both anxiety and stress in our lives. Yoga and meditation will help you to a great extent. Exercising also helps to de-stress. Be a part of some gaming activities, enjoy artistic work, take a walk, watch a movie, go to a spa, have a warm shower – all these help to get relief from stress.

Be a woman with grace, be a woman with all the superpowers!!

  1. Analysed article… Every point is apt for us…. I would recommended every women in her 30’s should take Women Horlicks as it has all the nutrients which we need 🙂

  2. Good article!

    As silly it might sound, along with dental and other health checkups, one should always get the ears checked too. Somehow it takes a back seat and it will create a problem someday when you least expect it. Talking with experience – my ears are blocked for the last 5 days and I’m having terrible head ache because of that. The doctor says it is ear wax and cannot be removed till it becomes a little soft. Medication and blocked ears for a week.

    So, do include a regular visit to the ENT Doctor as well. 🙂

  3. Such nice tips Sana. We all tend to compromise with our health. I’ll be more careful with my health from now onwards. 🙂

  4. We can definitely become more fit if we follow these tips and the fitness will reflect on our skin too. I try to cover most of the points above except the regular dental check up 🙁 May be I should start doing that too. Nice article Sana. And thanks Swati for giving the information about ENT health maintenance. You are absolutely correct about that.
