A well-known fitness expert once said – “A woman’s relationship with her own body is the most important relationship she will ever have”. As a woman, do you keep a close check on your health and well-being at all times ? Do you know of women who undergo a feeling of being overwhelmed constantly (the “unable-to-unwind” syndrome), experiencing low self-esteem, not being mindful of self-care ?
Women need to be cognizant of minor symptoms such as constant allergies, and headaches or hair and skin breakouts, to larger health disorders that they do not fully understand – such as reasons for infertility, and how to keep mentally fit through fluctuating hormonal cycles.
Women experience some unique health issues – from menstruation, pregnancy and menopause to gynaecological conditions, such as uterine fibroids and pelvic floor disorders.
Menstrual irregularities can trigger a host of related challenges in a woman’s physical and mental wellness. Urinary incontinence and urinary tract disorders can be a hindrance to the everyday functioning of a woman’s life.
Loose abdominal muscles well past the post-pregnancy period, mood swings before menstruation (commonly referred to as PMS), and peri-menopausal symptoms that range from irritability to sleeplessness, are health issues that plague women at various stages of Life – oftentimes, a simple understanding of the life cycle you are in, the lifestyle that you are currently leading, the food that you are consuming, the mindset that you have adopted, can independently or together lead to an optimal state of being.
Keeping body, mind and spirit in alignment is of prime importance as we weave our way through Life – impacting all those around us.
Haphazard and start-stop methods of staying fit are common – from going to the gym to google up healthy recipes to learning how to calm our minds with breathing exercises – we do it all
It’s only when our bodies start throwing up serious warning signals that we seek professional help.
What if we start off from a position of knowledge and sound information – understanding our bodies at various stages through the eyes of an expert? Fully comprehending what to expect when we choose a particular lifestyle, dietary habit, or mental construct. Understand that from Menstruation to Menopause, our bodies will act and react based on internal and external triggers. Understand that it is possible to be in top form – by following simple, easy-to-adopt changes.
The world is more aware than ever before – and health experts have more knowledge and information than ever before – to guide and lead the community towards total health and wellness.
