Adult – 30s and 40s
Your 30s and 40s are possibly the busiest time of your life. But just as you are coming into your own and feeling stronger in your identity, your body begins to show some of the first subtle signs of aging.
With multiple roles, such as mom, breadwinner and all-around domestic goddess, you are being pulled in many directions that can leave you open to chronic fatigue syndrome and depression.
Don’t push aside your own needs. Find time to focus yourself and commit to maintaining a lifestyle that benefits both your physical and mental health.
Maintaining Healthy Habits
You will need to develop a consistent exercise schedule now as it will become easier to put on weight, which can contribute to future health problems. You also need to eat healthy, balanced meals and avoid fad diets.
Other important health challenges to be aware of in your 30s and 40s are loss of bone calcium, less elastic and regenerative skin, and possibly a shift in hormones that can cause some changes to your menstrual cycle, including the possibility of uterine fibroids.
Pregnancy past the age of 35 can also increase risk of birth defects, pregnancy difficulties, and miscarriage.
