As women, we often have the tendency to look after everybody and ignore our own health and well-being. This behavior could stem from seeing our mothers put the whole family first, or feeling guilty for taking time out to look after ourselves. Whatever the reason, now more than ever, we need to make sure we are looking after ourselves and leading a fit and healthy lifestyle.
Making our health a priority should, in my opinion, start from a very young age.
In fact, I believe it should be ingrained in every human being. No-one should feel guilty for taking time out, whether it’s from the workplace or from being a homemaker, to ensure they have a yearly general check up with their GP.
Moreover, this should be followed up with regular exercise, healthy eating and relaxation. Our physical and mental health are just as important as each other. These two crucial factors should not be left on the back burner, only to find out later that had we taken time to make our health a priority, we would have been looking after those we love.
