Health areas we should be paying more attention to
If you're a busy woman (let's be real, most of us are!) you might have limited time to look after your health.
While we try to eat healthy and exercise, there are a couple of areas that are often neglected. We can miss yearly check ups or simply forget to pay attention to parts of our health that require maintenance.
So here's your reminder to put yourself and these parts of your health first!!!
When was the last time you visited the dentist for a checkup? It is easy to neglect your oral health when you have a hectic lifestyle. I'm guilty of only visiting the dentist when I chip a tooth or if I'm in pain.
If you keep on putting off the visit, you might need to take a step in the right direction now. Small issues today can turn into huge ones later in life, and it will cost you much more to get them fixed.

Getting the right vitamins & minerals in
If you don’t look after your body’s immune system, it cannot protect you from cold and viruses. It might be a good idea to get some multivitamin and mineral tablets and increase your intake of fresh fruit and vegetables, so you don’t end up missing important events and meetings due to illness.
If you're an active person, you have to make sure that you are not putting too much pressure on your joints and are able to protect yourself from injuries. Make sure that you get sport supplements that will protect your joints and muscles, so you will not have to face mobility issues later in life.
She Does This is a huge supporter of mental health awareness. You might be thinking that you'll never be affected by the problems around one fifth of the population is facing. Whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressed, you might want to take a step back from your busy lifestyle and do something that you enjoy. The best way of preventing mental health issues is looking after number one and reflecting on your feelings. Always seek help when you feel you need it.
If you are an office worker, chances are that you are sitting in front of the computer most of the day.
Screens can damage your eyes, so it's crucial that you get an appointment with your optician regularly. It is better to wear glasses when you are working or reading something than allowing your vision to deteriorate and later needing surgery or stronger glasses. Medicare helps with optometrist bills and most private health funds have fantastic benefits surrounding eye care.
