Women’s health encompasses a wide range of physical, mental and emotional aspects that are unique to the female body. It is crucial for women to prioritize their wellbeing and take steps to maintain a healthy lifestyle!

Physical Health

Regular exercise – engaging in physical activity not only helps maintain a healthy weight, but also reduces the risk of chronic disease. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week, a good mix of both aerobic, cardio and strength training.

Balance nutrition – a well-balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grins, lean protein and health fats is essential for women’s health. Be sure to pay attention to portion sizes and limit the consumption of processed foods, sugar snacks and beverages – but don’t completely cut out what you enjoy! Everything in moderation is fine.

Mental Health

Stress management – limit stress (easier said than done!) practice stress management techniques such as deep breathing exercises, meditation, yoga and just generally engaging in hobbies that bring joy and relaxation.

Prioritize self-care – make sure for self-care activities that promote mental and emotional wellbeing. Activities like reading, taking long baths, spending time with loved ones or engaging in creative outlets!

Talk – be sure to talk to friends, family, work colleagues or look to the more professional side with therapists, councillors and support groups. Talking about your feelings and concerns can provide emotional support and health alleviate stress.
