10 Best Women’s Wellness Ideas

Updated on June 10, 2016

Know the Women’s Health Issues

Here are some of the common health concerns every woman should know about.
Breast problems: Breast lumps are a common health issue for women. Many lumps are noncancerous, but all of them deserve medical attention.

Heart disease: Heart disease is the number-one cause of death for females in the United States and the leading cause of death worldwide.

Osteoporosis: Women are much more likely to suffer from osteoporosis than men. Initially, this disease occurs without symptoms. Estrogen deficiency following menopause is one of the strongest risk factors for developing it.

Depression: Signs and symptoms of clinical depression include changes in sleeping patterns, feelings of tension or anxiety, low energy, problems concentrating, feelings of hopelessness, loss of interest in things you used to enjoy.

Luckily, adopting healthy lifestyle choices can be very helpful in reducing women's health risks. Positive mental health is associated with improved wellness. Schedule your well-woman visit, get active by exercising for at least 30 minutes a day to boost bone health and avoid osteoporosis, eat healthy and reduce intake of processed foods, maintain a proper weight for your height, manage stress, get enough sleep, stay away from cigarettes, cut down on alcohol, and avoid unhealthy and risky habits, such as texting while driving and not wearing a seat belt.

Purpose of Women’s Health Week

National Women's Health Week (NWHW) was started by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health to encourage and remind women to make their health and wellness a priority. The week involves educational programs, events, fundraisers and more. It also helps women understand what they can do to improve their health. You can celebrate National Women’s Health Week by organizing or attending an event in your area; spreading the word through social media; sharing info with friends, family and colleagues; or posting the NWHW web buttons to your blog or website.
