Being a woman itself is a superpower, juggling multiple roles at the same time, for which different set of responsibilities are designated.

Today, as we celebrate International Women's Day let’s pledge to gain better health and a healthier body. Here a few ways women can boost their health. 

Work out regularly

Find a workout that you enjoy, stick to the regime and achieve smaller goals. Exercise is the best thing that you can do for your health. It has been shown to lower the risk of getting cardiovascular disease, endometrial cancer, and other serious health conditions. Research says women who weight train to gain strength can get the best results by simply doing it regularly.


Follow a well-balanced diet

Include a lot of veggies, fruits and whole grains in your diet. They are rich in fibre, protein, and other essential nutrients that are helpful for health. Studies say that 32 is the best age for a woman to start dieting. Avoid added sugar as that can increase the risk of chronic conditions like obesity, heart disease, etc.

Practice mindfulness

Practising Mindfulness Meditation provides several health benefits. It helps lower stress and anxiety levels, improves focus, and manages chronic pain. It also helps to lose weight and boost your overall well-being.

Protect your bones 

Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones become weak and brittle and has become a common condition found in women. Many women won't even feel any symptoms until they break a bone. However, this shouldn't be the case, as breaking a bone is not a natural part of the ageing process. Therefore, it’s important to be protective of bone health. A combination of good exercise and supplementation of calcium and vitamin D3 or a prescribed bone therapy can help prevent osteoporosis.


Find a healthy hobby

Hobbies are great distractions from worries and troubles. It gives your brain a break, leaving you to focus on something that makes you happy. Hobbies are said to be the best stress-reliever that can increase your productivity. There are plenty of fun activities such as cooking, dancing, gardening, reading and others.
