How many of us actually take care of ourselves? These five simple health tips for women should help us get back to track, once again.
How many of us actually take care of ourselves knowing full well that health is of utmost important? These five simple health tips for women should help us get back to track, once again.
It is truly said that “Health is Wealth”; as staying hale and hearty is the key to a fulfilling life. But how many of us really take care of our health? We are inclined instead to ignore ourselves, as it seems to be quite easy, right?
We women are the backbone of our homes; things really falls apart if we are not well so we might as well take care of ourselves if we want our loved ones to be happy. Here are five super cool health tips for women to follow easily.
I am sure no one can withstand food wastage but women tend to take this issue a little too seriously. We tend to eat whatever our children leave on the plate before rushing off to school. We need to STOP doing this. We are not our family dustbins. Period.
Inculcate the habit of healthy eating. Make sure you are eating a balanced diet comprising of protein, carbohydrates and fat.
Also, it is equally important to sit together as a family and have your meals, instead of serving food to the male members of the house while the women folks can wait – that’s the notion everywhere. Change it for good.
Relax and rejuvenate is equally important. Sleep, go for a weekly body massage, exercise, meet your friends – do whatever that makes you feel good from within and helps you to de-stress and detox. If you are not happy from within, it will never reflect on your face. Remember, your children will not like a dull faced and depressed mom.
Again, this is very important. You deserve this. Go for that regular health check up that you have been delaying all this while. Women who falls in the age group of 30-40 are at greater risks of getting breast cancer, osteoporosis, thyroid etc.
Research says that Indian women are sleep deprived all the time. Sleep needs differ from person to person, but if you have trouble getting out of bed, or if you feel tired easily and frequently, you probably aren’t getting enough of sleep. Consult your doctor immediately.
It is very easy to take ourselves for granted and lose in the regular humdrum of domestic chores. But, it is necessary to take care of ourselves and be in the ‘list of things.’ Because if we don’t value ourselves, no one else would do that for us. Hope these health tips for women would be the harbinger of change in our lives.

Life is a journey and I have a long way to travel… I am a nomad at heart, a non-conformist of many rules, a hopeless romantic and I mostly look for self-motivation when read more...

If you want to get back to work after a break, here’s the ultimate guide to return to work programs in India from tech, finance or health sectors - for women just like you!
Last week, I was having a conversation with a friend related to personal financial planning and she shared how she had had fleeting thoughts about joining work but she was apprehensive to take the plunge. She was unaware of return to work programs available in India.
She had taken a 3-year long career break due to child care and the disconnect from the job arena that she spoke about is something several women in the same situation will relate to.
More often than not, women take a break from their careers to devote time to their kids because we still do not have a strong eco-system in place that can support new mothers, even though things are gradually changing on this front.
A married woman has to wear a sari, sindoor, mangalsutra, bangles, anklets, and so much more. What do these ornaments have to do with my love, respect, and commitment to my husband?
They: Are you married?
They: But You don’t look like it
Me: (in my Mind) Why should I?
Why is being married not enough for a woman, and she needs to look married too? I am tired of such comments in the nearly four years of being married.
I believe that anything that is forced is not right. I must have a choice. I am a living human, not a puppet. And I am not stopping anyone by not following any tradition. You are free to do whatever you like to do. But do not force others. It’s depressing.
