What are three things women can do to improve their health?

Making steps to better your health doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Taking small steps in a variety of areas can add up to big improvements.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), three things women can do to improve their health include:

  • Eat healthfully – Eat a diet full of fruits and vegetables, grains, fat-free or low-fat dairy, fish, lean meats and beans. Limit the amount of saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium and added sugars.
  • Be active – Start with activities like cleaning your house and parking farther from your office so that you have an opportunity to walk more. Seek to do a variety of physical activities: aerobic activities, strength training and stretching.
  • Take care – Be committed to regular wellness visits with your doctor and to getting the screenings needed for early detection of health conditions.

For more information about things women can do to improve their health, talk with your physician.
