In my first article on Midlife Matters, I wrote about making a choice between being a trail blazer or treading water in your comfort zone. You can click here to read the article if you missed it.
In the second article of the series, I would like to discuss, keeping a check on your health in Midlife and the top 12 health checks for women 40+.
Our Health plays a vital part in this choice, because if we don’t look after our physical, mental and spiritual health there certainly won’t be any trail blazing!
So, let’s examine Health Matters and how we can be fit and healthy in midlife.
Midlife, although an exciting time of life,can also bring changes in our bodies which for some of us makes life difficult to deal with. The main offender is Menopause and some suffer more than others. I was a fortunate, but I believe that my symptoms were reduced because I exercise regularly and eat a healthy and well-balanced diet.
I recently had a guest writer Dr Catherine Hansen who wrote a series of articles on Menopause which were helpful and encouraging.

Health Checks for 40+
I’m not sure why but we don’t always think about regular health checks. We make sure our families are healthy and we even make time to have the car serviced, but we sometimes forget to make important health appointments which in some cases could save our lives.
Scheduling appointments at the same time each year or two, makes it easier to remember when they are due.
