Turning 30 is a milestone. You are almost half-way through your life and possibly settled with a decent and stable job, already own a home and have a family. All the rush and indecisiveness of the 20s are way behind you and it is time to face the adult life. The first thing to take stock of is your body. Your body is changing and slowing down. Time to listen to it and respect it. So, here are a few tips to make your life and health post 30 easy.
How to take care of Health post 30?
Keep an eye on your Bone Health and Muscle Mass
Though it is projected for women more, the bone density of men also suffers once they hit 30. So, man or woman, it is time to increase your calcium intake and exposure to sunlight. Keep an eye on those vitamin D levels to keep stress and fatigue away, and to ensure proper absorption of calcium.
Just like your bones get old and frail, so do your muscles lose their mass by almost 5% every decade. Health post 30 is not exactly a cake walk so make sure to would include physical activities and variance in your workout routine every 4-6 weeks, so that your muscles do not get used to the same movements and go through a little variation now and then.
Do not get too Obese
Obesity is the most dreaded side-effect of becoming “settled”. Chaotic lifestyle, lack of time for yourself, excess work pressure, round the clock office work, health post 30 declines to coming home to sofa and bed every evening. You barely have the energy to move on the weekends. The result is a big paunch even before you realize it. It also happens to women often after childbirth.
A big abdomen is a signal for everything wrong with your body right from fatty liver to heart working too hard to keep up. Get serious and tone your body. Go for fun workouts as a couple or family, if you cannot spend time alone.
Time to Bring Change in Eating Habits
It is high time for you to adopt healthy eating habits. A binge once a month is fine but your body and health post 30 can no longer take the stress of eating junk every day. Either it will constipate you which is a problem for everyone around you or you will end up with lifelong gastric issues which are way more serious than they sound.
I would like to use this post to bring a very serious issue into the limelight. Mental health post 30 is just as important as physical health and you have to be aware of how your spouse or family or even close friends are doing on this count. If you feel you or they need help, please do not hesitate in getting a professional opinion. It is not easy to speak up for those suffering from any sort of psychological issues so patience and love are necessary.
