Health Questions for Women: Simple Solutions to Troubling Questions/How to Schedule and Keep Track of Health, Exercise, and Diet As a woman, you have a tendency to multi-task irrespective of whether you are a working mother or a home-maker. There never seems to be a dearth of chores for you to get done. Among the pertinent health questions for women is how to factor in a schedule for exercise and diet for your own well-being. Scheduling time to plan out a healthy existence for yourself may sound a bit difficult, but it is necessary considering the frantic pace at which we lead our lives.

Convenience eating, skimping on hours of sleep, over-packing one’s day to complete more, seems to be a part of everyday life now. If you still hesitate to alter your lifestyle, think of this – chances are your health will not be able to cope and soon you will not be able to achieve even half of what you are doing now. The best way to start is to slow down a bit and take stock. Where are you going wrong – bad diet, lack of sleep, too much of mental or physical work each day, or all of the above?

Take the time to cook meals at home rather than get takeaway. Get the family involved as well, helping you all spend some meaningful time together.

This will give you the exact picture of where you stand and you will know how to plan your diet and exercise. Get expert advice on the kind of exercise and diet patterns you need to follow.

Get together with family or friends and plan out physical activities that you can have fun with. Treat yourself to a spa occasionally or do things that relax you, reading, baking, music, painting, anything at all that interests you. Exercises should be simple enough to keep you toned and not try to qualify you for the Olympics. Fit in some yoga or meditation for good measure. Early mornings are a good time for exercise and will energize you for the day ahead.


The lack of time may catch up to you occasionally, but do not let that be discouraging. Once a comfortable pattern of giving quality time to yourself is in place, you will find alternate ways of fitting them in with a few minor adjustments to your lifestyle. Since the benefits are tangible, the motivation to stay dedicated will be strong. This article was written by Ruth D'Souza Prabhu a Content Writer for Adoley Odunton’s Wellness Revolution.
