Thirty, flirty, and thriving!
That’s one of the most remarkable lines from the movie, “13 Going on 30”. We couldn’t agree more though. Most women in their 30s are killing it. They have that confidence that the younger generation does not have. But we all know that as we age, our health deteriorates. You might think that this age is too young to think about health issues, but let me remind you, it’s the decade where you have to start exerting effort.
In this post, we will share with you some of the health tips that women in their 30s should consider.
Health tips women in their 30s should think about
Start strength training
If you must know, people who already reached their third decade start to lose muscles. Even if you are active, this is a reality that you cannot escape. Thus, there is a need for an extra effort to delay this natural ageing process. If you do strength training, you are creating microscopic tears in your muscle tissues. As a result, it rebuilds your muscles.
Treating your skin the wrong way
Your skin is far more different from what you had when you were a teenager. That is why you have to reassess the products you are using. Are they still age-appropriate? Or do you need to change it? Of course, the best way is to consult a dermatologist most especially if you have a special skin condition. Or you can always try the natural facial solutions which are generally safe and effective.
Avoid processed foods
When we reach 30 years old, our metabolism slows down and that is why you would notice a lot of people gaining weight. Apart from strength training, it is necessary that you choose healthier food to maintain your weight. You should stay away from processed foods and go for lean proteins. Vegetables should also play a major part in your diet.
Go seek an appointment with your doctor
We encourage you to have a regular appointment with your doctor. Even if you don’t feel anything, you can’t be so sure if something is happening from within. By age 30, you should monitor your blood pressure, your cholesterol level and whatnots. In addition, get a PAP and HPV test every five years. Seeing a doctor doesn’t mean you are sick. You are just preventing the worst to happen.
Stop your vices
If you smoke or if you drink beer regularly, you might want to stay away from it. We don’t have to emphasize what these things can do to your health. You have probably read it a thousand times, right? While we understand that it’s hard to break a habit, you need to be determined and motivated to stay healthy, most especially that you are already in your 30s.
Lastly, even if you are already older, this doesn’t mean that you have to stop having fun. It’s just that you have to choose the ‘cleaner’ ones. Instead of getting drunk over the weekend, you can try hiking or biking. Think of activities that can release your happy hormones and will not be detrimental to your health.
