One cannot fully understand what it would entail to become healthy if they would not know what health means in the first place. Health as defined by the World Health Organization is the state of complete physical, mental and emotional well being and not just merely the absence of disease.

It doesn’t mean that if you’re thin, you are healthy. It doesn’t mean that if you may look physically well, you’re healthy. There are a lot of factors that have to be considered in order for a woman to be physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy.

These are the following tips one must look into to stay physically, mentally and emotionally healthy.

Staying Physically Healthy

Eat a well balanced diet. Do not skip meals

Do not skip the most important meal of the day – breakfast. Remember, your stomach has been empty for about 11 to 12 hours. You have to eat breakfast before you start your day.

It doesn’t mean that you have to undergo starving yourself to death just so you can achieve the weight you desire (the thin look). A healthy height and weight proportion. Should be maintained. Meaning your weight has to coincide with your height.

Drink plenty of water every day. Every single day we lose fluid. We call it sensible and insensible loss. As we breathe in and out, we lose fluid, we sweat, we eliminate. Hence, we need to replenish our body on a regular basis. We don’t want our cells to shrink and die.

Exercise. Do regular exercise, be it isometric or aerobic. Rather than using the remote, get up and walk towards the television to turn it off. Take a brief short walk early in the afternoon, or take your dog for a walk. Exercise increases circulation and improves health.

Perform regular breast self-examinations. It is best to perform this after your menstrual period.

Avoid alcoholic drinks, smoking, and other vices that would harm your body.

Staying Mentally Healthy

Practice your memory. Try this from time to time. Memorize a few words and make sure you still remember those at the end of the day.

Meditate and from time to time release all the bad energy and focus on one’s self.

Stay positive.

Staying Emotionally Healthy

If you are at the brink of emotionally breaking down, cry. Don’t keep your emotions inside It is healthy to cry.

Have a support system where you can share what you are feeling. Don’t let it all get bottled up inside you.

Smile rather than frown. You age less if you smile. You age more if you keep frowning and getting mad.


Before anything else, the major point women should watch out for is the four Fs (female, fertile, forty, fair). Hence, if you fall into this category then you should be meticulous and be cautious with your health. As health is defined, it is the overall state wherein you are healthy. Physically, mentally and emotionally, you have to be healthy.
