They say life begins when you clock 40 years but your health isn't getting younger and taken very serious.
Scheduling regular appointments with your doctor is vital to stay healthy if you’re in this age group.
Common Health Challenges Women face:
1. Deteriorating Vision: Annual eye checkups is very necessary. However, at age 40s, your vision may not be as good as it once was. Many women at this age are using reading glasses or experiencing common eye issues, such as dry eye, that never appeared before. So, if it’s been a while since you visited your eye doctor, it’s time to schedule that appointment.
2. Risk for Major Health Issues: Unfortunately, as women continue to age, their risk for many serious diseases increases. Examples of this include colon cancer, breast cancer, diabetes, and skin cancer. With all of these issues, prevention and early detection are vital. That’s why it’s important to stay on top of regular screenings and ask your doctor for new health screenings.
3. Changes in Bones: As you grow older, your body slowly begins to change and deteriorate. This is especially true for your bones during this age. That’s why ensuring you spend time getting plenty of Vitamin D, and exercising regularly is essential for keeping your healthy. Doing so will lead to fewer health issues down the road.
4. Change in Lifestyle: You’re not as young as you once were, and, while that may not be impacting much right now, you may notice changes in your lifestyle habits.
For example, maybe you’re not as sexually active as you once were, maybe you don’t workout as much or eat as before, Keeping track of how things are changing for you—and if you enjoy those changes—is extremely important.
If you want to have more intimate time with your partner, you might consider going to sexual therapy.
Either way, staying vigilant to your lifestyle is key to remaining happy and healthy.
