Being a Seasoned Woman can be some of the best years of your life, in fact, these are your prime years. So embrace these years and let others see your excitement.
The years between 40 and over can be when menopause hits most women. You can experience bone loss and muscle depletion if you don’t stay fit. It is also the time when you can turn things around for yourself both physically and mentally be adapting better wellness habits. Think of yourself as being in transition with the best years still to come.
Eat to be Fabulous
Healthy eating begins with healthy food choices something that is often underestimated it. Food choices are shown in your skin, and in the levels of energy you have. If any of these areas are problematic, check your food intake where you will find the answers.
Foods lacking in vitamins and minerals can affect the health of your skin which can make you look older. Beautiful clear and healthy skin is wanted by everyone.
Healthy eating begins with uncomplicated foods. That also means adding antioxidants that help fight the signs of aging. There are many raw foods that contain antioxidants: blueberries, strawberries, whole grains, broccoli, green leafy vegetables, root vegetables and yogurt. These foods can be eaten “as is” as they fill your body with vital nutrients that keeps the body repaired and vibrant looking.
Being busy is not an excuse to go out and eat fast foods that are depleted of needed nutrients. Create your own convenient fast foods to be in control of your nutrition. It just takes a bit of scheduling. Make meals ahead of time. Create your own healthy snacks at home and carry them wherever you go.
Work to be Fit
Getting and staying in shape is important at any age and especially during this transition phase of your life. If you don’t have a workout going it’s never too late to start. You can start today and reap the benefits of a healthy body for years to come.
One thing that you will want to do is know how to start and know your limitations. If you haven’t exercised in a while, going slow is the way to start. Taht is, don’t go out and sign up for a kickboxing class and hurt yourself. Instead choose an activity that you like and stick with it. As you get stronger, you can move up to that kick butt kickboxing class and feel confident that you can hang tough.
Don’t forget strength training either. Many seasoned women don’t understand how important it is to keep muscles built up. Muscle burns more fat than just doing aerobics alone. Building muscle also strengthens your bones and your joints which helps to avoid arthritis and other aches and pains. Start slow here again with light weights and maybe a fitness trainer if you haven’t a clue what to do. The goal is to build toned, tight lean muscle not big bulky muscles.
Exercise has the added benefit of lowering blood pressure, decreasing stress and strengthening your heart and lungs. With a strong body you can avoid many of the diseases that usually come with age.
Look forward to feeling fit and fabulous at any age. Get moving and shaking today while you modify your diet to get back to basics. Get your metabolism revved up with exercise. In no time at all you will feel younger and look better than you did when you were younger.
