Women – Take Charge of Your Health

Even though health care is such a politically explosive issue, we can’t deny that today’s health care and medicine is more diverse and effective than ever. Even so, too many women take their health for granted. Don’t be one of them! You can take control of your personal health. Taking charge of your personal health will keep you active and happy no matter what age you are. How can you do it?

Think ahead

Today’s choices determine tomorrow’s success – or failure! If you’re thinking about making healthier lifestyle choices, now is the time to take action. Set goals that are realistic and attainable so you won’t give up. The more specific your goals are, the easier it will be to plan towards reaching them.

Make yourself a priority

What stresses you out the most? When faced with so many demands and so much pressure – both at work and at home – it’s easy to place your own needs on a back burner. If you want to attain your health goals, however, you’ll need to set aside some time and mental energy for yourself.

Knowing yourself: What risk factors should you be watching?

Taking charge of your health means more than making healthy lifestyle choices. If you want to stay healthy throughout your life, you’ll need to pay attention to the medical side, as well. Not only do women as a group have unique health care needs, but your individual health and family history can drastically affect the decisions you need to make. Make sure you stay up to date on all your checkups and preventative screening, especially for conditions for which you are at risk.

Find a provider you trust

Taking control of your health doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. In fact, your journey can be much more comfortable and fruitful if you team up with people you trust. It pays to shop around at the beginning, but working with the same provider long term helps you build confidence and intimacy. In addition, your care provider will come to know your personal needs and health history, helping them make decisions that respect your needs and wishes.
