Why is women’s health so important? Women represent the cornerstone of a family’s overall health, ensuring they have access to quality care also can lead to improved health for children and families. The health of families and communities are no doubt, tied to the health of women.
Living a healthy lifestyle through healthy eating, exercising, avoiding junk, will not only extend your life, rejuvenate your skin and hair, but it will also improve your overall well-being. This in turn helps you to feel better physically and mentally.
Healthy habits can be hard to develop and require you to change your mindset. However, a strong willpower and target goals can help you to follow a healthy lifestyle. The most common health issues are overweight, mood swings, diseases, low stamina, and dull appearance. Healthy living plays an important role in overcoming all of these issues.
The Connection Between Health and Wellness
The relationship between health and wellbeing is not just one-way – health influences wellbeing and wellbeing itself influences health. There are various correlations between wellbeing and physical health outcomes, such as improved immune system response and increased longevity. The following points will help you to understand how your health and wellness are connected:
Regular exercise and a nutritious diet will help you to stay fit and healthy. Being physically active and eating nourishing foods are key to boosting your immunity system and increasing your energy levels. Try to maintain at least 20 minutes of exercise daily to stay active and fit. Along with exercise, make sure to have the right balance of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, in order to boost your energy levels throughout the day.
A healthy lifestyle will lead to a relaxed mind, which helps to overcome any stress.
Focusing on your health and how you treat your body will help you to prevent certain diseases, such as heart diseases, blood pressure, and depression. Ultimately, regular exercise and a balanced diet will increase your metabolic rate and an improved health condition.
Unhealthy foods can cause us to feel lethargic and lazy. On the other hand, eating nutritive foods will give fuel to all body functions. A good combination of exercise and a balanced diet leads to a good night’s sleep, helping you to feel fresh and energetic when you start the day.
The Importance of Self-care and Wellness
Overall physical wellness encourages the balance of physical activity, nutrition, and mental well-being to keep your body in top condition. Obtaining an optimal level of physical wellness allows you to nurture personal responsibility for your own health.
We review the seven pillars of wellness, to provide an overview of the important role that each pillar plays:
Sleep – The First Pillar of Wellness
Poor quality sleep, or a limited amount of sleep on a regular basis is linked to poor immune system function. If you go through a short period of reduced sleep due to work and life demands, but have a healthy immune system, then this will not be a problem. However, poor quality and/or a limited amount of sleep over time, is something that needs to be addressed to support this wellness pillar.
Movement – The Second Pillar of Wellness
Regular movement and exercise are not only great for your heart, but they’re great for your immune system too. Balance is key, start with a small amount of daily exercise.
Environment – The Third Pillar of Wellness
The air we breathe, the water we drink, our personal hygiene, the quality of our food are all important environmental factors that have a huge impact on our immune system.
Nutrition – The Fourth Pillar of Wellness
Now more than ever, it is key to use food as medicine to support all of our 11 body systems, including our immune system. Our bodies need whole-food nutrition and clean water.
Mindfulness – The Fifth Pillar of Wellness
Fear and stress tend to shut the immune system down, and the body goes into fight or flight mode, thinking that real physical danger is right in front of you. Give yourself five or ten minutes every morning just to be still, to set the intention of your day, and then choosing whichever mindfulness techniques work for you and enrich your life.
Body Balance – The Sixth Pillar of Wellness
Our skeletal and muscular systems are pivotal to our health. Your posture and skeletal systems must be in order to allow enough space for your organs to work effectively, thus supporting your overall health and immune system. Physical therapists and reflexologists can help to ensure your skeletal system is strong.
Supplementation – The Seventh Pillar of Wellness
Over-farming has decreased the nutritional value of the food that we eat. Historically, farms and farmlands would have more space and the soil would be given a rest every six or seven years; crops would alternate, and the soil would have time to rest and increase the nutritional value it could add to the particular crop. Supplementation gives you the nutritional support you might be missing. It also supports overall gut health, provides immune support, boosts energy, and enhances the appearance of healthy skin and stronger hair and nails.
