Women are often taught how to care for children and men, but when do you learn how to take care of yourself as a woman?

There are many ways to take care of yourself as a woman that goes far beyond this list you’re about to read, but these are the things that have helped me from my teen years and far into womanhood. Hopefully, they’ll help you too.

These simple health tips and more will leave you feeling good, looking good, and being happier overall. The better you take care of yourself, the better everyone is.

  1. Sleep for at least 8 hours overnight.

Recent research has suggested that sleep plays a crucial role in cleaning out the brain each night. While these toxins can be flushed out during waking hours, researchers have found that clearance during sleep is as much as two-fold faster than during waking hours

So this is a more important part of self-care so go to bed early enough each night to get this amount of sleep.

Turn off your phone, tablet, computer, and TV at least 30 minutes before you turn in and do something relaxing to wind yourself down.

Try taking a warm shower or bath before you put on your pajamas (My favorite). Have a cup of caffeine-free herbal tea, such as chamomile or peppermint. and try to listen to some relaxing music or read a book in bed.

2. Drink plenty of water to stay well hydrated.

Staying hydrated is vital to your health. Your body can go for periods of time without food but not without water. Your body is comprised of around 75% water and forms the basis for metabolic processes, blood, body, and digestive fluids, as well as being the main component in lean muscle, fat, and bones. Caffeinated and alcoholic drinks tend to dehydrate so these should be limited within health and wellbeing guidelines for optimum nutrition.

3. Nutrition

Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote your overall health.

Instead of reaching for junk foods when you’re hungry, go for more fruits, fruit juice, smoothies, veggies, salads, whole grains, and lean proteins. These foods will nourish your body, keep you feeling full for longer, and help you to have more.

And also try to cook your meal more healthy. You can get more ideas for Pinterest or on websites about healthy foods.

4. Exercise

Many people think of exercise as just being for weight loss but it does far more than that. It helps combat diseases such as high blood pressure, depression, certain types of cancer, stroke, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. It boosts certain brain chemicals which leaves you feeling happier and more relaxed than before. Exercise boosts your energy, improves your sex life, and helps you get better sleep.

Try to do a workout at least 30 minutes per day. and you can get cardio by doing things like dancing, running, ice skating whatever you want.

Every time we all are so busy, there is always something to do: work, go grocery shopping, do laundry, pay bills, etc. But make sure you are carving out some time for the things you love to do.

Reading, painting, cooking, writing whatever it may be, don’t put it on the back burner. This is something you enjoy doing, therefore it makes you happy. Self-care is about more than health, it is about your overall wellbeing. So do everything you can do to enjoy every minute. Before I finish this article, I want you all to remember these two great quotes.

“your body is precious. it is our vehicle for awakening. treat it with care.” -Buddha.



“To love yourself right now, just as you are, is to give yourself heaven. Don’t wait until you die. If you wait, you die now. If you love, you live now.” — Alan Cohen
