A Woman’s Journey To A Healthy Lifestyle
When asked, “what is your most important answer?”, my answer is, “my health!” Health affects every aspect of my life.
I have made a commitment to live a healthy lifestyle, implementing disciplines into my daily life such as physical exercise, consuming whole food nutrition, drinking several glasses of water per day, and spending quiet moments in meditation and prayer.
Optimal health is when the body and mind are in perfect sync and all internal organs are performing effectively.
Many women struggle daily with health issues; not just physically, but emotionally as well. Stress is the number one contributing factor to poor health. Other major factors include a lack of physical activity, nutrient deficiency, high consumption of sugary and processed foods, and sleep deprivation. Living this lifestyle can potentially lead to stress on the function of internal organs which, in turn, will increase your chances of developing certain diseases such as some cancers, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
I empower women over 35 to adopt a healthy lifestyle and help transform lives!
What To Look Out For
In your 30’s, there are a number of things you need to start addressing and focusing on:
Your heart is the organ that pumps blood to the rest of your organs. Ensuring you’ve got a strong and healthy heart can do wonders for the rest of your health. At Susan Hunter Lifestyle, you’ll learn all about heart-healthy foods and ways to help prevent heart problems in the future.
YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
Your blood pressure is definitely something you’re going to want to keep an eye on if you’re 30 years old or older. High blood pressure can lead to all sorts of diseases including heart disease and cancer. Thankfully, a nutritional diet and active lifestyle can help prevent and even counteract the effects of HBP.
After about 40 years old, your hormones will start to noticeably change. Symptoms of hormonal changes may include night sweat and an inability to sleep. Exercise can help the transition of menopause and enhance your quality of life.
You need to know about your good and bad cholesterol. Good cholesterol clears your body of bad fat. Bad cholesterol does the opposite (clogs arteries).
Needless to say, your weight has a direct impact on your overall health and way of life. After you reach 30 or older, it becomes even more of a concern. Losing belly fat and other unhealthy fat from your body can assist in boosting your overall health.
YOUR BONE HEALTH
For women over 40, bone health is something you’re definitely going to want to pay close attention to. Many women who develop Osteoporosis can begin a whole food based diet and exercise plan that works for them and helps to reverse and relieve some of the symptoms.
