Developing habits is a part of life and something everyone does, but you really should be focusing on the healthy habits. These are things you should do on a daily basis that are good for both your physical and mental health.
Here are some healthy habits that are great for everyone, especially women.
Get More Exercise
If you don’t have a regular fitness routine, now is the perfect time to start. Exercise is wonderful for anyone, male or female, but it has some unique advantages for women. Exercising can help you lose weight and manage your weight, fight diseases like heart disease and diabetes, and prevent conditions like arthritis and osteoporosis as you age. It is also great during any phase of your life, whether you are a teenager, in your childbearing years, or even as a senior adult. This is a great healthy habit to start developing now.
Focus on Your Nutrition
In addition to exercise, you should also develop a habit of eating better. Don’t try to find some fad diet just to lose weight but choose a new way of eating that becomes a part of your lifestyle. Think of longevity and choose foods that are good for you, provide superior nutrition, and are foods you can eat and cook easily. Pick and choose based on what provides the most nutrition, but also what is manageable for your current lifestyle.
Don’t Neglect Your Mental Health
Now is also the perfect time to start developing habits that are good for your mental health as well. Far too many people, women especially, neglect their mental health. Your mental health can also have an impact on your physical wellbeing, so it is very important. Some things that can help your mental health include doing regular self-care which includes getting regular exercise and eating right, writing in a journal, getting your nails done, get out in nature, get a massage. “Me time” is super important for your overall health.
Spend Time With Loved Ones
It is easy to become a hermit and just work and sleep, but it is important for your health and well-being that you make a habit of visiting others. Make plans with friends, spend time with family, and reach out to people you don’t spend a lot of time with, such as co-workers or neighbors.
Your body is made of mostly of water and drinking enough is essential to function properly. When your water intake does not equal your output, you can become dehydrated. Fluid losses are hightened in warmer climates, during strenuous exercise, in high altitudes, and in older adults, whose sense of thirst may not be as sharp. Water helps maintain the balance of body fluids, helps control calories and energize muscles, keeps skin looking good, helps kidneys rid your body of toxins and helps maintain a normal bowel function.
Who is up for drinking more water, starting now? Comment below and let me know. Do you drink water plain or do you add anything to it? Like fruits or veggies? I like mine plain and with fruits and veggies.
