5 Health Tips Every Woman Should Know
1. Staying Hydrated.
If you would like to drastically improve your overall health, staying hydrated is your answer and it is a simple numbers game.
In fact, the more water you drink the better your health will improve, and here is why…
Approximately 60% of the body is made up of water. Meaning that drinking enough water is essential for the ideal functioning of the body’s tissues and cells.
Additionally, water has many amazing properties for a women’s health such as controlling and regulating the body temperature, lubricating joints, and transporting nutrients and waste through the body much more easily than a dehydrated body ever would.
Moreover, failure to keep and replace lost water (especially during exercising or being hungover) can trigger performance and safety consequences.
And when it comes to staying healthy, that is why every woman should try their very best to stay hydrated, which means drinking eight glasses of water each and every day!
How to drink more water:
- Drink plenty of liquids that include water such as tea and juice.
- Avoid caffeinated drinks that cause dehydration such as coffee and soda.
- Eat foods high in moisture content such as watery fruits and vegetables.
- Add electrolytes into your diet by drinking sports drinks after intense exercise or after sweating profusely.
- Keep a bottle of water at arm’s length at all times.
2. Eat Colorful Foods.
You likely have heard the old adage “you are what you eat”, especially when it comes to your health.
Moreover, there are a number of reasons why so many health professionals advocate eating a colorfully rich diet — colorful food usually contains high fiber.
For example, dark GREEN fruits and vegetables are colored with chlorophyll, which makes a real difference in destroying toxins in the body.
Additionally, consuming a rainbow of colors in your diet ensures that you’re getting all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs for optimal function.
In addition to being filled with antioxidants, colorful fruits and vegetables also contain essential minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, and calcium.
Furthermore, eating brightly colored food can help boost mood by releasing serotonin (the “happy hormone”) when we are feeling stressed and down.
Furthermore, if you focus on enjoying a variety of fruits and vegetables, you’ll end up eating more of what’s great for you and little of what isn’t such as highly processed foods loaded with refined sugars and so much more.
So add more color to your diet because it’s a health benefit that every woman should know!
3. Have a Consistent Daily Routine.
As women, we are constantly bombarded with information about how we should look and what we should wear and it’s just plain exhausting!
However, there are some things that every woman needs to know in order to maintain her health without losing herself in the process.
For instance, waking up earlier than normal will help give you plenty of time to concentrate on your goals and conquer the day with more focus, attention, and mental clarity.
Eating at the same time each day or going for an afternoon walk will help you eat healthier and be more active.
Taking an hour to yourself in the evening prepping for bed such as reading and writing will help tremendously towards your mental health.
Not only that, having daily regimented routines help lower stress, helps win back lost time, and helps you be less likely to forget important tasks and errands because you had a daily routine that you could count on.
Plus, a lot of women forget the importance of routines and why they were built into healthy lifestyles in the first place.
And this is exactly why creating a fixed routine (day and night) will help tremendously towards your overall health.
4. Be Active for 140 mins Per Week.
No matter how busy you are or what your budget is, there are still some simple and easy ways to remain active.
Moreover, one of the most important things for every woman (who wants to be more healthy) is that she gets active and stays consistent with it.
Studies have shown that women who exercise not only feel better but also live longer.
Furthermore, getting at least twenty minutes of exercise a day increases the chances of staying healthy by a whopping 30%.
Moreover, research has also found that incorporating simple daily exercises (even with low intensity) can be highly beneficial for reducing the risk of developing chronic illnesses while maintaining well-rounded and optimal health.
Plus, when it comes to fitness and getting in shape, fitness doesn’t have to mean doing a sweaty, challenging workout either!
Light gardening, daily walks, or other low-impact activities can offer many advantages such as weight loss, a healthy cardiovascular system, and healthy lungs.
Therefore, being active for 140 minutes a week is a good idea, especially if you’re sitting at your desk for a great deal of time throughout the week.
5. Oral Health.
When it comes to adding healthy habits to be more healthy, did you know that flossing daily is one of the easiest things you can do to keep your general health in good standing?
Not only that but when it comes to flossing, it can be one of those small health chores that a lot of women tend to overlook.
However, a bad oral routine, or even worse a neglected one, has been linked to heart disease. And heart disease is a woman’s number one killer in America.
If that’s not bad enough, studies have also found that gingivitis (which is known to occur from not flossing) can cause premature birth risks because the extra bacteria left in the mouth can trigger an autoimmune response. When left untreated it can cause early contractions and dilation.
That means when it comes to adding more health into your life, ladies, taking care of your oral health is one of those simple things that you can do to stay on top of your health.
