There are many hormones in your body as a woman that you need to work on balancing properly. These range from estrogen and progesterone, to testosterone, and your thyroid hormones. Simple daily tasks can help improve your health overall and balance your hormone levels at the same time. I shared a few of these last week LINK, and here are a few more!
Eat More Healthy Fats
You may think the words ‘healthy’ and ‘fats’ don’t go hand-in-hand, but that isn’t at all true. While you may not want to just eat unlimited fats all day long, there are healthier fats that are great for you. These can help to balance your hormones and actually help you lose weight. You want to avoid man made and processed fats like margarine and vegetable oil, and instead go for healthier fats like grass fed butter, coconut oil, nuts and seeds, and avocados. Try to add these to your diet and you will notice all the amazing benefits.
Improve Your Sleep
If you haven’t been getting 6-8 hours of sleep a night, it is time to rectify that. Missing out on sleep affects your body and mind, and yes, your hormone levels. If you want to balance your hormones, start focusing on getting better sleep. Try changing your sleep routines, drinking a cup of tea before bed, and not keeping your phone near you while trying to sleep.
