Women And Their Bodies As They Age

A Women’s health differs from that of men in many unique ways. This happens due to unique biological, social and behavioral conditions. If you are a woman and constantly suffer from body pain, head ache, worries constantly about your health – then this is the post for you. I’ll try to explain as much as I know about Women And Their Bodies As They Age in this informative post. 

Women And Their Bodies As They Age

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. In this article, a list has been compiled as to how a woman’s body changes as she ages

1.Slower Metabolism

Most women notice that their metabolism slows as they age and that more ‘work’ is needed to maintain your body. There was a time, when you could binge all you want, but after about 30 years old, this changes. The metabolism slows down, which means you have to be careful about what you eat. Working out becomes all the more important as we start losing muscle mass and our bodies tend to become weaker.

2. Low on Energy

After you turn 25, or after you deliver a baby, you will notice a shift in your energy levels. It will take you more energy for doing the same things which you were able to sail through easily before. 

3. Hair Loss

Well, this needs no introduction. Women and hair loss is a common problem. About one-third of women experience some kind of hair loss, whether minor or serious, at one point or another. A number of things can contribute to extra strands leaving your head, such as medications, medical conditions, and stress. This is one of the major challenges that people find depressing as women and their bodies as they age.

4. Dry Patchy Skin

Have you noticed how your skin which was radiant and supple has dramatically changed? It’s normal at even a young age of 25 to start seeing the signs of aging and it’s mostly a function of sun damage over the years. It is a good thing to start working on a skin care regime that suits your skin.

5. Musculoskeletal system

Muscles in the body so much more than make you strong. They actually hold every organ and every bone in place. Over time muscles lose strength and flexibility much like a used piece of elastic. The combination of muscle and bone deterioration results in restricted movement and lack of coordination. 

6. Digestive system

The entire process of digestion slows as you age. The intestinal area diminishes and the flow of secretions from the stomach, liver, pancreas, and small intestine decreases causing digestion to slow and bowel function to change.

7. Hormonal tsunami

If you thought your PMS was bad before, welcome to your 30s: By age 35 your fertility also starts to drop off and you may even begin entering early menopause, which can cause mood swings, sleep disturbances, and/or anxiety.

So, what can be done about all the above?

⇔ Start a workout routine – walk, run, Zumba, yoga, strength training – anything that appeals to you. this is important as you age.

⇔ Make healthy food choices – Be mindful of what you eat.

⇔ Drink water – drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day.

⇔ Get plenty of sleep – Sleep is important for overall well-being. Insufficient sleep increases hunger and stress and impairs metabolism

⇔ Sharpen the mind – read or do crosswords.
