Buddha once said that “every human being is the author of his own health or disease,” and that is something that each woman should take to heart — both literally and figuratively.
To look and feel your best at any age, it’s essential to make smart lifestyle choices. There are many simple ways a woman can get into—and stay in—excellent physical condition. Here are 10 of the best tools in your daily arsenal that can make a difference in your life and well-being.
Take time for yourself and let go of the things that are nagging at you. Replaying a past discussion or action over and over in your head will not change what happened. It is also not beneficial to overthink a scenario before it happens. Most of the time, the conversation you have in your head never comes to fruition — it simply wastes time and stresses you out for nothing.
The following things can help you learn to relax:
- Mindful thought
- Listening to soothing music
- Sitting in nature – the beach, parks, your backyard, by water
Eat for your health and emotional well-being. Nature provides an abundance of healthy options that aren’t made with ingredients that you cannot pronounce. Return to natural foods in their purest form, including organic and pasture fed products whenever possible.
Enjoy the following foods for heart and whole body benefits:
- Raw nuts and seeds
- Fresh fruits and vegetables
- Lean proteins
- Heart healthy grains
Drink half of your body weight in water each day. Stay away from toxic beverages such as soda, diet drinks made with artificial sweeteners, and coffee concoctions full of chemicals. Make your own healthy coffee beverages at home and use seltzer and organic fruit juices to make natural sodas, if desired.
Drink wine in moderation — it has many benefits for the heart. If you love chocolate, get a good, high-quality, organic cacao and make yourself hot chocolate with turmeric, black pepper, coconut milk, and ginger. Not only is it delicious, but the benefits to your body will be superior.
Exercise by finding the forms of cardio and weight bearing exercises you enjoy, and do them every day. 10 to 15 minutes is essential for women’s health and will make a big difference in your daily life.
Get 8 hours of sleep each night. Your body needs this to produce enough growth hormone, progesterone, testosterone (yes, women need this, too), and other essential hormones. Sleep allows your body to process the day’s activities and restore and replenish energy levels.
Be in the moment. Be mindful of what you are doing at any given moment and do not let distractions pull you away from your thought process.
Every person can create something. Whether your creations take the form of food, art, song, poems, stories, dance moves, clothing, or anything else, be creative. Allow your mental inspiration to guide you in some way.
Avoid toxic people, chemicals, foods, and situations whenever possible. Remove people from your life, social media websites, etc. if they are getting you down. Learn about how toxic chemicals in food, cleaning supplies, make-up, and other products are making you sick. Find better alternatives to toxic products.
Restore your health if necessary. Visit the doctor, have blood tests, eliminate medications that are not helping. Find a new doctor if the one you have is not listening to you. Prevention can help you avoid illness in the future.
There are times when supplementation is required. No matter how clean of a lifestyle you lead, your body may still be missing out on important nutrients. Hormone levels also tend to decline in later years, especially around the time of menopause. It is essential for women to be mindful of adverse changes in their lives that could require treatment with bioidentical supplements such as human growth hormone, testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen.
Treatments such as HGH injections for growth hormone deficiency work from the inside out, providing women’s health benefits for memory, bones, muscles, weight, hair, skin, heart health, and more.
