									Modern day women are required to play many roles, both in professional
and personal lives. Handling various responsibilities simultaneously is
not easy. It requires the body and mind to be in a perfect condition.
Therefore, women should make smarter health and lifestyle choices to stay
healthy.

 Though the body processes of women are slightly complicated, a few
simple and healthy changes in regular lifestyle can help them maintain
proper health and stay away from health problems. In this article, we
will look at a few healthy tips for women.

 Women's health concerns are different from those of men
 Physiologically, women's body differs greatly from men's body. Women's
body is more sensitive than the men's body. Though many of the health
problems in women and men are same, the way they affect women can be
different. The risk factors experienced by both men and women are
different for some diseases. For example, women are more prone to heart
diseases and osteoporosis, while men are more prone to prostate cancer
and developing stones in kidney. Hence, few health tips designed for men
may not suit women.

 Simple tips
 All a woman needs to do is to take some time out of her busy schedule
and follow few simple tips regularly to make her life healthy. Below are
few of them.

 Eat healthy: It is always necessary to have right diet in order to stay
healthy. It is recommended for women to have plenty of natural food to
get all necessary vitamins. Natural food includes fresh fruits,
vegetables, grains and cereals. Every day diet should contain right
amounts of whole grains, high fiber foods, low fat dairy products, nuts,
legumes, leaner cuts of fish, meat and poultry and raw vegetables like
carrots, cucumber, celery, broccoli, etc.

 In addition to the above list, you should also drink lots of water. You
should avoid food which is high in sugar, salt, fat and calories, besides
avoiding processed foods.

 Exercise regularly: Exercising regularly will help you stay physically
active, which may help in preventing many serious diseases like cancer,
heart diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis, back pain, etc. Exercise is also
found to improve life expectancy. At least 30 minutes of regular exercise
should be done for five days a week. Regular exercise regime may include
aerobic activities like, walking, jogging, swimming, bicycling and
dancing. You can even do Yoga.

 Manage stress: Women are found to suffer more from stress and
depression, which may give rise to many serious health problems. Women
should understand that mental health is very important for physical well-
being. It just takes few minutes to relax and then you can actively get
back to the normal daily routine. You can also manage stress by
practicing few relaxation techniques like meditation or by doing physical
exercise.
 Get enough sleep: Sleep plays an important role in improving one's
health, especially women's health, as they handle various roles in their
everyday life. A womans body should get at least seven to nine hours of
good sleep to wake up refreshed. Sleep generates lot of positive energy
which is very much essential for increasing productivity and overall
sense of well-being. Good night's sleep is found to increase life
expectancy too.

 Stay away from drug abuse: Today, many of the women are getting into
unhealthy habits like substance abuse. Women suffer more from the ill
effects of drug abuse compared to men. Hence, some of the serious bad
habits like drug abuse, smoking, alcohol consumption should be avoided at
any cost to stay healthy.

 Get regular check-ups: Taking time out for regular weekly or monthly
check-ups shows your willingness to stay healthy. As already said, women
are easily prone to health problems, they should go for regular check-ups
to keep themselves well informed about their body's condition. Women
should regularly go for tests such as, mammography, bone density test,
blood pressure check, cholesterol screening, skin cancer screening and
diabetes test, etc.

health also changes, but the basic health needs remain the same. Hence,
