Women have madestrides in educationand careers, yet stillsometimes neglecttheir own health. Hereare some simple, yeteffective tips to boostyour sense of wellbeingtoday.
Stop Eating Diet Food
Tired of avoiding carbs and constantly eating non-fat diet foods? Remember, eating weight loss foods doesn’t necessary mean these are good for your health as these are often highly processed, have more sugar, but less fat content, and can be very expensive. Instead, consume healthy foods in the proper portion sizes to help make huge improvements in your overall health.
Get More MUFAs in Your Diet
Think all fats are bad? Think again–monounsaturated fatty acids or MUFAs are fats and oils. Found in foods such as olives and olive oil, canola oil, nuts and nut oils, seeds and seed oils, grape seed oil, soy bean oil, and avocados, MUFAs can help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood.
Now is a good time to slow down and learn to listen to your inner voice to transform and correct imbalance in your body. By meditating/praying, you observe yourself; physically, mentally, and emotionally and learn to understand, acknowledge, accept, surrender, and trust what you are currently experiencing is for the moment only.
Take a Deep Breath
Breathing practices enhance and revitalize our body in the physical and mental plane. Once we consciously direct our awareness to the incoming/outgoing breath, we can see how the breath changes with the fluctuations of the mind.
Get a Good Night’s Sleep
It’s during our deepest sleep known as Delta sleep that our heart rate and respiration rate slow down and the body becomes immobile. The brain waves slow down to Delta brain wave frequency which is when growth hormone or hGH levels increase, and result in the rejuvenation of the muscular, immune, and skeletal systems.
Take Care of Your Bones
As women achieve maximum bone mass around the age of 30, it’s crucial to have enough intake of vitamin D and calcium during that period.
Get Your Vitamin D
Experts stress that the only reliable natural source is exposure to the sun for about 30 minutes every day or alternatively, taking a good multivitamin with 400 IU of vitamin D is
a practical way to get enough of it.
