We do all these things, but are you guilty of bad habits that pose a health risk — without even realizing it???
Here are some bad health habits that many women make:
|Carry the flats for long distance walk|
Solution: Wear those beautiful stilettos on special occasions only and if you know you are going to be walking a long distance wear a pair of flats or sneakers, and change into your heels when you arrive to your destination.
Solution: You are going to have to learn to travel light. Pack only the essentials. If you must carry around a large purse or a gym bag, choose a backpack with lots of pockets to help you distribute the weight as evenly as possible. A backpack? Yes! we know is not fashionable, but it will help your back neck and shoulder.
|Juggling Too Much|
Solution: Add strength training twice or three times a week to your workout routine, using resistance bands or free weights. Don't be afraid you will look nicely toned.
|Your Stilettos might be killing your feet|
Solution: Prioritize — and realize you can’t do it all, at least not everything at the same time! Ask your spouse and kids to pitch in.
6. Putting Everyone First - Do we really need to explain this? We are sure you understand this one. Women tend to put ourselves last. We forget that we are vulnerable too and that if something happens to us, your loved ones suffer too. This neglect leads to physical as well as emotional health problems.
7. Cutting Out All Snacks - You might think you’re helping to manage your weight by cutting out between-meal eating. But snacking on good foods is not bad. In fact, you can have more weight loss success when you eat two or three healthy snacks a day — low-fat yogurt, almonds, carrots, or berries, for example.
Solution: Eat two or three small 100 to 200 calorie snacks a day to fight hunger in between meals and this will prevent you to overeat.
Solution: Make your sleep a priority by going to bed at the same time each night, if possible. Try to keep your bedroom cool, dark, and quiet; and reserve your bed for sleeping and sex only, not watching TV or working on your laptop.
