Goodbye 2020, hello 2021! If you are like us, you were more than happy to bid adieu to this past year. Why not make this year the best yet for your body, by making your feminine health a priority? Whatever stage in your life you are currently in, it is never too late to take control of your health.
Whether it is getting out for a daily walk, having a dance break in your kitchen, or tackling that goal to run a marathon, make the time to fit in exercise every day. Even small changes like parking a little further away when you go to the store or opting for the stairs will make a difference.
Choose Smarter Eating Habits
The holidays are over, but we all know they aren’t the only time we are all guilty of making poor food choices. Altering your eating habits doesn’t mean having to go on a strict diet or abandoning your favorite treat. Try substituting out your chips for carrots or that sugar-filled latte for a nice hot tea with honey.
Choosing better foods can help you increase your energy and concentration as well as aid in weight loss. Avoid fad diets and focus on nutrient-dense, delicious foods.
Practice Self Care
Stop feeling selfish about wanting to take some time for yourself to relax. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Try taking time each day to relax with a good book, take a relaxing bath, or do a mud mask. You’d be surprised how good you will feel throughout the day when you start taking time to breathe and focus on yourself.
Get a Physical
This is a big one. Stop putting off your next trip to the OB/GYN! Whether you are overdue for your annual exam or it is time for a mammogram, there is nothing more important than your health! A physical may not seem like very much fun, but it gives your doctor the chance to catch any potential health issues you may be experiencing. After all, early detection is always key.
