August marks National Women’s Month in South Africa and at Medshield we want this month to serve as a reminder for women and girls, especially during the outbreak of COVID-19, to make their health a priority and take care of themselves. It is extremely important for all women and girls, especially those with underlying health conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular and respiratory conditions, and women 65 years and older, to take care of your health now.
Medshield encourages women and girls to,
Take care of your body and mind
Talk to your healthcare provider if you have concerns about COVID-19;
if you are sick;
if stress is getting in the way of your daily activities; or,
if you have a health condition, such as asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure or obesity, to develop or maintain a plan to keep it under control.
Maintain a healthy weight
Get and stay active regularly at home with the #MedshieldMovement – www.medshieldmovement.co.za
Eat heart-healthy well-balanced meals and snacks.
Take care of your mental health
Stay connected with family and friends.
Find healthy ways to manage stress
Practice good sleep habits to improve your mental and physical health, and boost your immune system:
Follow a routine for going to sleep – be consistent going to bed and getting up – even on weekends.
Try to get at least 7 hours of sleep
The below (alcohol and cigarettes) are currently unavailable during lockdown but once it does become available,
Monitor alcohol intake and avoid illicit drugs, including drugs that are not prescribed to you.
Look out for your lungs
Try to quit smoking and vaping
Smoking weakens your lungs and puts you at a much higher risk of having serious complications.
Slow and stop the spread of COVID-19 while protecting yourself. To get the most up-to-date information on COVID-19, visit accredited sites and our website www.medshield.co.za
It’s not always easy to take steps for better health, and every woman has her own approach. The key is to find what works for you.
