Self-care, self-love, and empowerment are key words for 2020 health and wellness trends for women. The American Medical Association is committed to leading our nation in making changes to prevent and reduce chronic illnesses. “With too many holiday sweets and not enough exercise likely in the rearview mirror, now is the perfect time to consider your personal goals and how you can make positive health choices in the coming year. The good news is that there are a few easy steps you can take that will set you on the right track for a healthier 2020.” -AMA President Patrice A. Harris, MD, MA
The AMA recommends taking the following steps to increase health and wellness in 2020:
Know your blood pressure numbers. Patients can go to loweryourHBP.org to better understand their blood pressure numbers and take necessary steps to get their high blood pressure under control. This will reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.
Take antibiotics exactly as prescribed. Antibiotic resistance is a serious public health problem. More than 2.8 million antibiotic-resistant infections occur annually in the U.S. and kill more than 35,000 people each year, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Antibiotics will not make patients feel better if they have a virus such as a cold or flu.
If consuming alcohol, do so in moderation. Women should only drink up to one drink per day, and men should only drink up to two drinks per day, as defined by the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Only adults of legal drinking age should consume alcohol.
Trends come and go, and what may have been popular one year can be cast to the bottom of the pile another year. But one thing is always true when it comes to women’s health and wellness trends in 2020, and that is that there will be a continued advancement in all self-love practices. A woman’s wellness is directly tied to finding peace within herself and celebrating what it is to be a woman.
