1. Staying hydrated
Staying hydrated is a simple numbers game, the more water you drink the better you will feel.
This is because it is one of the most important factors to improve your health.
Approximately 60 percent of the body is made of water, meaning that getting enough is essential for the ideal functioning of the body’s tissues and cells.
Water has many duties for a women’s health; it controls body temperature, lubricates joints, and transports nutrients and waste through the body.
Failure to keep and replace lost water (especially during exercising) can also trigger performance and safety consequences due to dehydration. So it’s best to stay fueled and try to get those 8 glasses of water each day!
2. Eating colorful foods
There are a number of reasons why so many health professionals advocate a colorfully rich diet.
If you focus on enjoying a variety of fruits and vegetables you end up eating more of what’s great for you and little of what isn’t (like highly processed and refined sugars).
Also, GREEN fruits and vegetables are colored with chlorophyll, which makes a real difference in destroying toxins in your body.
The list does not stop there, which means that you want to eat certain distinctive colors of natural foods and vegetables to activate all the nutrients that your body needs daily.
Pack your plate full of color and you’ll be doing your body a real service in health!
3. Enjoying a healthy morning routine
Building a healthy morning routine is key to a successful healthy life.
Waking up earlier than normal will give you plenty of time to concentrate on your goals and conquer the day with more focus, attention, and mental clarity.
You’ll also have more time to eat healthier food and maybe write down all the things that you are grateful for in your gratitude list.
Morning routine lists of benefits are really endless.
It lowers stress, you win back lost time and you’ll be less likely to forget important tasks and errands.
Plus you are going to take care of yourself way better when you have the time to take things slow and think things through.
4. Active movement for 20 mins a day or 140 mins a week
Getting in 20 minutes of exercise a day should be your top priority if you want to increase your chances of living longer and staying healthy.
Research has found that even simple daily exercises with low intensity can be highly beneficial for your health and well-being, like reducing the risk of developing cancer and other chronic illnesses.
That means fitness doesn’t have to mean a sweaty, challenging workout.
Light gardening, walking or other low impact activities can offer many advantages if you’re sitting at your desk for a great deal of time.
5. Taking care of her oral health
Flossing, it’s one of the easiest things you can do to keep your general health in good standing but it’s often overlooked as an unnecessary chore.
A bad oral routine or even worse, a neglected one, can be linked to heart disease which is a woman’s number one killer in America.
If that’s not bad enough, studies have found that gingivitis can cause premature birth risks, as the extra bacteria left in your mouth can trigger an autoimmune response that causes contractions and dilation to start early.
Taking care of your oral health sounds needless but it really is one of those simple things that every woman can do to stay just a little bit more healthy!
