Womens Health and Fitness

Womens health and fitness are important issues no matter what stage of life she is in. Whether preteen or octogenarian, it is vital that a woman maintain her health and remain fit. Not getting standard tests and screenings or enough exercise can be detrimental to a woman's health – both mental and physical.

What areas of health should a woman be concerned about? Teens may have questions about menstrual cycles. This stage is the beginning of their womanhood and is often confusing and stressful. If you have a teenage daughter, talk to her about issues like premenstrual cramps and mood swings. In fact, you can even be proactive and begin discussing these issues and how they are a normal part of life before your daughter starts her menstrual period to help relieve the stress of the situation. If your daughter is of a certain age and has not started her period, you may want to consider taking her to your primary care physician for a check up, just to make sure things are all right.

Womens health and fitness may change as they age, but it is always an important part of life. In their 20s, women may find they are working on their career or starting a family. The 20s and 30s is a time when women often neglect themselves for work or family. It is important to maintain good nutrition, get plenty of sleep, and exercise to help maintain your health. Remember, if your health fails because you are neglecting it, you will not be of much help to your work or family.

As we enter our 40s, womens health and fitness issues before more important than ever. Even if you have not been maintaining proper nutrition up to this point, now is the time to start. By exercising and eating right, you can help ward off disease and illnesses such as heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes, and osteoporosis. Many women start to experience the onset of menopause, which can be a stressful time in life. But, if you maintain your health, exercise, and talk to your physician about issues as they arise, it can be much easier to go through.

As women continue to age, they continually face new health obstacles. Osteoporosis becomes something to which women need to pay close attention. After menopause, women experience a deficiency in estrogen, which results is a reduction of bone mineral density. To help prevent osteoporosis, women are often treated with vitamin D and calcium supplements.
