From playing numerous roles; as daughter of someone, to being wife and a mother, ensuring a happy family, to leading a professional career as a business leader, entrepreneur, and a creator!  And in this everyday hustle-bustle, women often overlook their health until it’s too late; thereby compromising on their overall health and well-being, and most importantly their nutritional needs.

On this Women’s Day we urge women to take small steps towards a healthier future by following simple guidelines to keep up with the health and fitness.

Make Sure To Fill A Quarter Of Your Plate With Protein For Every Meal

We all know nutrients are essential for good health, and none should be missed to maintain a healthy balance in the body. But did you know every meal must have adequate protein? Yes ladies, make sure to fill a quarter of your plate with protein-rich foods like fish, chicken, eggs, or cottage cheese, lentil, soybean, or tofu to ensure you are consuming enough proteins for the day and meet your daily requirement of protein. As protein helps build tissues, foster growth, build immunity and is a storehouse of energy.

It is a free tool wherein you simply add details such as your age, sex, lifestyle, and it generates your daily protein requirement. Hence, this women’s Day make sure to focus on consuming enough proteins not just today but everyday!

Kick-Start Your Day with A Healthy And Heavy Breakfast

You may have heard this multiple time, eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper. And often due to busy schedules, and multiple things on plate women overlook eating our most important meal of the day:breakfast. And skipping breakfast by no means the right thing to do, no matter what diet one follows or how busy one is. A healthy breakfast is important for multiple reasons. Not only does it help reduce cravings through the rest of the day but also helps in maintaining a healthy digestive system. Women must ensure to take out some time to eat a good and healthy breakfast full of proteins such as eggs, milk, handful of nuts, or nuts to keep yourself energized throughout the day.

Stay Hydrated

Water is often called a ‘magic potion’, and for good reason! After all, it helps flush out toxins produced in the body due to binge eating, sedentary lifestyle, and increasing pollution. Make sure to stay hydrated by drinking a minimum of two litres a day. You can also start your day with a glass of warm lemon water with honey to detox your body. In no time will you notice your skin glowing too!

Move Your Body And Keep Yourself Active

While a balanced diet is important, one needs to squeeze in some time for exercise. Take out about 30 minutes a day and indulge in some movement. Whether you like a sport or love to burn calories in the gym, the choice is all yours! Exercise also releases endorphins, which means you’re going to feel good and uplift your mood after a great workout.

Keep Yourself Active

Sign Up For Health Checks

Regular health check-ups help one identify any early signs of health issues. It is a good idea to visit a doctor regularly, even if you feel healthy. The purpose of these visits is to take some time out and get your body checked every six months before a problem gets out of hand. As they say, Prevention is better than cure! Certain tests that women should regularly get checked for are: Cholesterol, BP and Blood sugar levels, Mammography, Pap smear, Teeth and Breast checkups.

Keep Stress At Bay

Our lives are filled with stress, all because of pressure in our personal and professional lives. Try to eat brighter colored foods or unwind and give yourself some time every evening. Whether it’s listening to music or reading your favorite book, spend some time doing what you like, to de-stress. It will liven up your mood in no time!

This Women’s Day, it’s time to follow these tips and take charge of your health not just today but Everyday!
