Navigating through a busy life is a challenge to every woman. Staying healthy is important for every woman as it will affect her life going forward. Before thinking about everyone else, a woman must think of herself first. On this International Women's Day let's understand the need for women to stay healthy and active and how following some simple healthy habits would allow a woman to achieve their health goals.
Our diet plays a crucial role in a woman's daily life. A woman should consume a balance diet rich in important nutrients and minerals, as women often suffer from a deficiency of essential nutrients such as iron, folic acid and calcium.
Following a daily exercise routine does wonders for your health. It releases endoplasm in the body keeping stress under check and also decreases the risk of diseases such as diabetes and hypertension and cardiac diseases. Exercise also improves your quality of sleep.
Make Healthy Life Choices
Self-care differs from person to person, but there are some healthy choices that a woman can make that will keep her healthy. Smoking is one such habit; it causes an increase in oxidative stress in the body posing a risk for cancer such as lung, ovarian and cervical cancers. Women should also avoid eating a lot of junk food as it can cause some changes in the body which negatively impact their health.
Limit Your Screen Time
Spending too much time in front of a screen can affect a woman's health, especially right before bed. It can seriously affect your quality of sleep, which is important for the repair and rejuvenation of your cells. It is also bad for your eye health.
Don't Take Sleep Lightly
Taking a 6-hour sleep is essential for a healthy life. Incomplete sleep can lead to irritability and moodiness. Sleep deprivation can also lead to apathy, slowed speech and flattened emotional responses, impaired memory and an inability to multitask. A good night's sleep recharges your batteries and keeps you fresh throughout the day.
Keep Your Immunity Strong
It's increasingly important to keep your immunity strong by getting the right nutrition and vitamins. Strong immunity will protect you from falling sick regularly. It will also boost your chances of fighting against unknown bacteria and viruses.
