Women's Health and Fitness Day: The Three W's for Your Best Health

09-28-2022

Women lead extremely busy lives. Whether you have a hectic job, a family to lead or a household to run, healthy eating and exercise can easily slip down the priority list. That's why we spoke to CaroMont Health Wellness Coordinator Amanda Lee and asked for her best tips for prioritizing wellness. Read more about her Three W’s for Busy Women, and how to best prioritize your health and fitness:

Write it Down:

“Life can get hectic and we are all busy balancing work, family and our social lives. One way I keep wellness a priority is to write it down. Mark those calendars! By writing it down, you’re more likely to follow through. Make a date with yourself to go to the gym, get a massage or take a long, quiet walk. Whatever you choose should boost your mood and bring you peace. But most importantly, scheduling time for yourself will greatly benefit your overall wellbeing.”

Work it Out:

“Whether your goal is to lose weight, tone up or just feel better, exercise should be a key ingredient to your wellness recipe. Don’t forget that ‘working out’ means lots of different things, and can be tailored to your comfort level. If lifting weights is intimidating, there are tons of other fitness options available. I’m a big advocate of group fitness classes like yoga, Pilates, Zumba and Spin. I also think personal training can help you become more comfortable with a variety of different movements and exercises, and introduce them safely under the guidance of a qualified trainer.”

Drink Water:

“Never get too busy to stay hydrated! Hydration is essential to maintaining a healthy body. Drinking enough water improves your mood, helps control caloric intake, energizes your muscles, lubricates your joints and flushes away toxins. Even your skin will benefit from drinking enough water. Women should aim to drink about eight cups of water daily or at least one third of your body weight in ounces. For example, if you’re 150lbs, drink 50 ounces of water a day. Set a daily goal and be consistent!”
