National Women’s Health Week

My top 5 tips for women’s health, as we celebrate National Women’s Health Week this week:

  1. Eat healthy, bottom line you must consume a healthy, balanced diet for overall good health. Study after study proves that this time and again. You can’t argue with sound, medical science.
  2. Achieve/maintain healthy weight, in order to reduce diseases including certain cancers, heart disease and type II diabetes, it’s best to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
  3. Stay active, what this means to you and your physical abilities may differ from others, but the key to longevity is ‘using it or losing it’ or so they say. This applies to mental challenges and keeping your mind active too.
  4. Positive, healthy outlook, it’s good to also focus on mental health and understand challenges help you keep your mind healthy. Have goals, and reach them. Be sure to have time for family, friends and hobbies. Giving back and volunteering is also good for your health too.
  5. Don’t abuse your body, for good health women (and men) need to remember not to abuse their bodies. If you smoke, quit. If you drink in excess, quit. Limit your alcohol and caffeine consumption too. All things in moderation.
