“When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.”– Helen Keller
We, women always take high responsibility. We should look after the home, we should take care of the children and moreover if you are working you have to take care of the job too. 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. Don’t have the artificial drinks available in the market take over your health. You can also have green tea. Dont indulge yourself too much in coffee or tea.
3. Sleep Well
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.
