With a busy lifestyle and multi-tasking roles to fulfil, women often tend to overlook their own well-being and health. With an increasing number of women spending less time pampering themselves or focusing on fitness and mental health, it is important to address holistic wellness to reduce risks and protect the cornerstone of the family. It is essential to balance the health triangle by focusing on 3 major wellness areas, viz, physical, mental, and social. There are no shortcuts to attain good health and mental wellness. Popping OTC pills may not be an ideal solution to fulfil the nutritional deficiencies or get rid of menstrual cramps, nor is the cup of caffeine loaded with white sugar a good response to uplift mood, or calories loaded junk food an answer to replenish energy levels.
Thankfully the age-old Indian wisdom has simple solutions that can help you take care of your health naturally. Check out these 7 Health Tips for Holistic Well Being with Good Lyfe's #dailydoeofhappiness to care for yourself and share the same with women you care for.
Health Tip 1
Kickstart Your Day – The Healthy Way
