How to Care for your Physical Health

“I recognize the challenges that arise when it comes to taking care of yourself. Here are six areas to focus on when it comes to your health. While none of these will be new to you, sometimes we just need a reminder.”
-Jessica N. Turner, The Fringe Hours1. Get regular check-ups. 

  • Annual Physical and Women’s Checkup
  • Dental Cleanings every six months
  • Mammogram every two years if you are over 50 (or earlier if your doctor suggests doing so)
2. Pay attention to your body.
  • Notice any discomforts or pains you might be having.
  • Don’t ignore these signals your body gives.
  • Respond and get things checked out when necessary.
3. Drink lots of water.
  • Your body is 60% water so your body obviously needs it.
  • You will feel better, and your body will function better.
  • Track the water you drink with an app or in your planner.
4. Exercise.
  • Move your body. Start by taking walks and gradually increase your intensity.
  • Grab a friend, or join a group training class at your gym.
  • Take what you learn in the class, and go do it yourself too.
5. Eat healthy.
  • Eat a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains.
  • Try to minimize foods that are processed and high in fat and sugar.
6. Rest.
  • The average woman should get seven to nine hours of sleep a night.
