20s is the time to enjoy life, 30s to work and earn and 40s is the age to pay attention to your health before it’s too late! Here are a few tips to help you take care of your body and health in your 40s!
Jump start your metabolism
Start strength training to give a quick start to your metabolism. Strength training for 6 months can increase your resting metabolism, so you’ll burn more calories even while you’re sitting.
Boost calcium and vitamin D
40s is also the age when you should pay attention to your bones. So have foods rich in calcium as well as Vitamin D. For this, have milk, broccoli, spinach, and onions.
Practice stress control
Stress can be linked to mood, back ache, head ache and even long term heart diseases. Stay active, happy and stress free! Take long walks, have time with your pets, talk to people around you like your neighbors or colleagues, and don’t let anything disrupt your mental peace.
Get essential checkups
During our 20s and 30s, we are so busy making something worthwhile of our lives that we tend to ignore our health. But we can’t afford this in our 40s. Get all round bosycheck up once a year. Also get your Blood pressure and Blood Glucose levels checked at least twice in a year, and more often if you have any health issues. It’s time to be healthy and stay healthy!
