Gender in today’s modern age has been widely expressed in different ways, preferences and feelings. In celebration of Women’s month, we remind everyone that gender equality is an effective way to build healthier, progressive and inclusive communities.

We at Evergreen Rehab & Wellness would like to take part in this movement in helping people – especially women – to build a future where everyone could reach their full potential through health and wellness services that we can offer.

Importance of Women and their Health in the Household and Society

Women play an essential role in the lives of many families. They are often regarded as the chief medical officer of the household and they are the gatekeepers of the family’s overall well-being. However, they usually forget to look after their own.

Women’s role doesn’t only end in the household but also in the bigger scale as they also play a great role in the economy and communities. Leaders who prioritize women’s health accelerate progressively for future economic growth and in health equity.

  • Women’s health when improved gives a positive improvement overall population health: Studies show that the healthier the women in the community, children contribute productively and they become better-educated communities. On the other hand, when a mother dies, her family and community experience a decline in their overall wellness which ripples its effect on economic stability and is made a priority by leaders across different platforms and industries.

With some of these facts that we can observe about women, they are really the bedrock and foundation for healthy families and communities without disregarding the role of how men support women healthily.

Challenges of Women’s Health

Since gender has hierarchical inequalities and influences especially to people’s access to health care.  Inequality and discrimination is usually encountered by women and girls which puts their health and well-being at risk. The health of women and girls is one of the particular concerns in many societies as they have been experiencing too many disadvantages and discrimination rooted in sociocultural factors. Consequently, based on the World Health Organization, women and girls face greater risks in health such as:

  • Unwanted pregnancies
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections
  • Malnutrition
  • Respiratory Infections
  • Cervical Cancer

How Do We Make Women Healthier?

Progressive Health for Women at Evergreen Rehab and Wellness

As governments, organizations and different communities join in the movement to create progressive change in terms of women’s rights and healthcare, there is also an essential step to take to fully achieve the goal of creating this world a better place for everyone.

Woman, you have to take good care of yourself in spite of the adversities and challenges this particular gender may face. How? Here some healthy activities that you may do (at any age) to take part in achieving a healthier life:

  • Be Physically Active

Find time in the day to do 30 to 60 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise that can help you have better sleep at night, gives you more good energy to last throughout the day, control your hormones and your unhealthy food cravings, keep you at a healthy body weight and help you increase your happy hormones. You may simply take the stairs, get up and take a morning walk or you may try fitness and health programs in wellness clinics near you.

  • Make this your top priority: SLEEP

The demands of this modern life can make it hard to sleep at night. Being worrisome and thinking of what should be done for your child’s school activities, or to the very simple food for the next day makes you think all the way to bed. Yet, we all know that having a good quality of sleep is an important factor in all stages, ages and genders. It helps us in our body’s restoration and recovery and decreases the risk of diseases such as heart problems.

Start creating a good routine of sleep habits in the simplest ways:

  • Do not consume caffeine after 2pm
  • Avoid screen time 30 minutes before going to bed
  • Put your phone in silent or sleep mode
  • Have a good touch of massage from your therapist
  • Read a book
  • Listen to relaxing music
  • Schedule an Annual Physical Exam

More often, women (or mothers) go to the doctor when they feel unwell. Given that women have higher pain tolerance than men, but usually, women miss out the opportunity to guard their long-term health by skipping these doctor visits which sometimes gets too late to prevent or cure the disease.

Preventive care is a good foundation of long term good health. So take time to visit your doctor regularly or at least a once a year complete physical exam so that serious health concerns won’t go unnoticed. This is also a good time to evaluate your need for women specific exams like pap test, mammogram, HPV screening and osteoporosis screening.

  • Improve Your Diet

At any age, you have to pay attention to what you are eating. Healthy food doesn’t mean that it’s not good in taste or boring. It can just mean fresh and fun flavors, colorful and appetizing plates and a whole new world of fresh and natural ingredients that you may have not tried before.

  • Choose better food with whole, fresh foods as possible.
  • Pay attention to sugar and carbohydrate intake even if it’s labeled as “low fat”.
  • Put more fiber in your menu which is found more often in plant-based foods like vegetables, legumes, fruits, whole grains.

In this way you could maintain a lower body weight and avoid illnesses that you may develop from choosing wrong food nutrition.
