Women’s Health in One Important Infographic

Women’s Health in One Important Infographic

With work, home and a vibrant social life, women almost always miss out on the one aspect that allows them to do so much, i.e. their health. Women’s health often comes at cost and by the time we are 50, we have a plethora of issues that only medication can solve. Sometimes not even that. Women’s health must be an important issue for everybody concerned because at least in some communities, they form the backbone of a healthy social fabric. Some of the major issues that come up when you’re 50 include osteoporosis and diabetes. In the last decade or so, breast cancer and cervical cancer have been on a rise.

This infographic, presented by Be Independent lists the various diseases that can rack you and the preventative measures you should be taking to come up on top of ‘em. Women’s health requires regular visit to the GP and vaccines that can prevent diseases such as Hepatitis A, B and chickenpox. One must obviously include regular exercise and living a healthy lifestyle to progress the work done by medication. Fresh market colours can make you feel better inside and out. Routine exams for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases are a must, especially if one is at risk.

We often forget when stuck in our daily rut that only we can take care of ourselves. Women’s health almost always suffers when one has too much to do and too little time. So when you are out relaxing, try to put down that alcohol and maybe focus instead on that fresh, juicy tomato salad. Women are at high risk from alcohol misuse and obesity. We often see the most industrious leading a most unhealthy, sedentary lifestyle. Without that run, you can be sure of that osteoporosis coming back to haunt you. Brittle bones were never a good idea in the long run.

    How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

    How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

    As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

    “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

    When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

    Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

    We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

    But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

    So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

    It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

    1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

    Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

    2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

    This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

    You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

    3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

    This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

    4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

    How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

    So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

    If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

    And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
