Now more than ever women need to take care of themselves, both mentally and physically. In 2017 there are so many current events and political pressures that can take a toll on a person emotionally and perhaps even mentally. In addition, the excess distribution of processed foods, fast food, and the lack of access to fresh foods can be troublesome for a woman’s physical appearance as well as mental state. This article will provide some healthy secrets that women can try in 2017 to help them live a healthier lifestyle.
Posture braces. If you have an office job you may find that your posture is being affected by sitting in a chair all day long. It is a good idea to try wearing a posture brace while sitting at your desk for 8 hours or more a day. It is true that women need posture braces more often than men as women are more likely to have a desk job or spend a great deal of time working in a position that can cause trouble to your posture. A posture brace can help straighten out your spine as well as take pressure off of your shoulders and neck.
Drink water. This is not really a secret but it is a health choice that many do not pay enough attention to. If you do not hydrate your body enough on a daily basis you may feel the effects of being dehydrated. Signs may occur in the form of headaches, migraines, or dry mouth. Drinking at least 64 to 72 ounces of water can greatly impact your health in a positive way. Drinking enough water will help you stay focused, make you feel more energized throughout the day, and can eliminate headaches or migraines.
Get enough sleep. Sleeping can greatly impact one’s life. If you do not get enough sleep you can feel cranky, nauseous, and it can impact your ability to perform in school or your job. Lacking sleep can also result in heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or stroke. Not getting enough sleep also increases the chances of becoming obese. Many are unaware that sleep is so important that it can affect your body’s intake of insulin which is the hormone that controls your blood glucose levels.
Sugar. Have you ever noticed having a headache after eating a bunch of sugar in a day? Perhaps you have noticed the need for a nap in the middle of the day after you eat lunch. Sugar is a substance that can have a great impact on your mood, energy, and overall well-being. There is research that states that those who consume sugar in excess are highly likely to gain weight and suffer from obesity and other health risks. Limited your sugar intake can greatly reduce your chances of gaining weight and getting sick.
