Seven Essential Things Every Woman Must Know About Herself

A woman plays a great many roles in her lifetime. Being an ambitious daughter, beloved lover, multitasking homemaker, a super busy working woman and above all a loving mother defines you. You attend various classes, get all the knowledge about healthy food you can gather up from the internet (counting the WhatsApp ka gyan), eat a fibrous diet and drink fresh juices. You believe yourself perfectly healthy. Well, it might not always be the case. Some other aspects which describe your health too are your overall emotional and mental well being and your hormones.

Sharing with you is a list of things every girl/woman must know which determine your health:

1)  Knowing your family’s medical genetic history:

You might be prone to some diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. if your grandparents or parents had them. It is very imperative to be familiar with your genetic history so that your doctor will accordingly advise you to take on a suitable lifestyle to keep cornered these diseases.

2)  Take good care of your body and mind:

Women’s hormones contrast than men’s; you are more vulnerable to depression as well as in all probability to go to meet your maker from a heart attack in contrast to men. Although, men have more probability of a heart attack, however, women have more probability of dying subsequent to a heart attack. Also, women are twice as probable to experience symptoms of mood swings, depression and anxiety as men. Therefore you must take good care of your body and mind by exercise, practicing meditation (if you can) and proper diet.

3)  Keep a tab on crucial numbers:

I recently saw “I feel pretty”, (spoiler alert!!)it is a story about a woman who fights with notions of inadequacy and insecurity on a regular basis, wakes from a minor head accident considering she is unexpectedly the most capable and beautiful woman on the planet. Later reality struck and she realizes that it was only her all the time!!

The beauty and cosmetic industry give us a lot of stress to be the perfect physical beauty parameters. Post pregnancy too, most women are put under the pressure and advice to lose weight and to get the body back!! God forsake, all the weight loss sweating and diets battle is no significant to the mental stress which you take. Keep Calm, and make peace with your body, exercise to maintain your mind and body healthy. Discipline and consistency is the key. Never let anything else rule YOU! Have regular check-ups, which most women avoid because keeping up BMI, cholesterols, BP, etc at all ages would indicate you better about your health.

4)  Your diet impacts your fertility:

Yes, I learned this before my pregnancy, the food you consume unquestionably makes a variation to your fertility levels. If you cut out important nutrients from your food, then it could negatively affect your hormones. This leans towards lowering your likelihood of conceiving a baby even when you are young. So, keep a check on giving your body with necessary micronutrients like potassium, iron, calcium etc. If you are planning a baby at a later age, afterward it happens to be demanding to stick to a healthy diet to maintain your fertility levels via food as suggested by your doctor.

5)  PMS indicates an imbalance in hormones:

It indicates an unbalance in your progesterone and estrogen levels which could be simply corrected by adopting micronutrients like amino acids, minerals and vitamins via food and supplements. If you are frequently experiencing PMS symptoms like feeling low, breast tenderness, bloating, cramps, pimples and acne etc. then it is not normal.

6)  Body change after puberty, childbirth and menopause:

It is difficult and confusing to accept the fact that your body will never be the same after reaching puberty, after pregnancy as well as after menopause. Your body chemistry change and Hormonal transitions happen. Gaining weight, lose bone density or have skin allergies are all normal. Get your doctor’s advice to deal with them and not follow internet or WhatsApp ka gyan.

7)   Your fertility goes down after thirty:

Your body changes after you hit thirty. You might plan a baby in your 30ies or late, but do remember after thirty your biological clock starts ticking(still no pressure, it is your body, your life and your ways) and after 35 your fertility falls swiftly with each passing year.

So its crucial to prioritize your health and get the mind-body balance as well as to live an active and healthy life!
