29 Sep 2021: How to celebrate National Women's Health and Fitness Day
National Women's Health and Fitness Day falls on the last Wednesday of September. This day highlights the importance of woman's health and around 10,000 women, of all ages, gather to take part in fitness programs in local health clubs in the US. In India we hardly see it getting celebrated, but it is high time such a day gets its due significance here.
Tip #1: Give all your support when your daughter hits puberty
Puberty is when the real transformation happens for a girl. She undergoes several physical and psychological changes. This is also when menstruation begins. In the initial few months, your daughter will face issues like mood swings, have body pain and other associated PMS symptoms. Hence, you should give her support at that time. Incorporate a fitness regime to have her hormones under control.
Tip #2: Make a resolution to give priority to your health
As a mother and woman, teach your girl to prioritize her health. You should also push your aging mother to do the same. And follow that for yourself too. Doctors say that three hours of physical activity in a week is enough for a woman. Go for regular check-ups and sketch out a diet plan. Do yoga, meditation to boost immunity and reduce stress.
Tip #3: Take care of your emotional and mental health as well
Apart from physical health, emotional and mental health is also important to lead a good life. Indulge in your favorite hobby. If you sense something is amiss in your life or your instinct says that something is wrong, take it seriously. Seek professional help if you are not able to manage things all by yourself. Please remember that there is no shame in it.
Tip #4: Men should take care of their pregnant partners
Pregnancy is another milestone for a woman. During the entire gestation period, they undergo several changes. It is important to look after yourself in that period. Take care of your diet and do yoga. The men of the house should especially go out of their way to comfort their partners.
Fact: Tip #5: A woman needs support during menopause
Menopause marks the end of a woman's reproductive cycle and that is when some women undergo stress. She may feel deficient in many ways, so it is imperative for her family members to emphasize how important she is to them.
