In your 20s | In your 30s | In your 40s and 50s

With every passing decade of our life, our body adapts—it may nurture life, recover from an illness or achieve athletic milestones. It demands little in return—a healthy diet, plenty of rest with consistent exercise, and regular health checks. We spoke to Dr Bana Rupa, Obstetrician and Gynecologist, Apollo Health City Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad and Dr Ranjana Sharma Senior Obstetrician and Gynecologist, Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, New Delhi to create this guide to healthy living for women in their 20s,30s, 40s and 50s.

In your 20s

The roaring 20s are all about pushing your limits and setting a healthy base for your life. While you hardly notice the late nights and skipped meals, develop good habits now for a healthy life later. Increase your intake of greens, exercise at least for 30 minutes every day, and stick to a consistent bedtime to help keep your menstrual cycle regular and hormonal headaches at bay. Don’t forget to hydrate.
