Get a cholesterol test

Many women worry a lot about breast cancer, when, in fact, heart disease is the number-one killer of women. Find out if you’re at risk.

Up your calcium

Many people don’t get enough calcium—which helps prevent osteoporosis—through diet alone. Women ages 19 to 50 should get 1,000 milligrams or eat three to four servings of foods high in the mineral (taken with vitamin D for absorption) daily.

Boost your mood with exercise and yoga

Exercise has a host of health benefits and can lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and other conditions. But the best news is that it can improve your mood. One study found that for depressed people, exercise was as effective as antidepressant medication.

Minutes 0:00-0:59: Climb stairs (walk, run, or sprint)

Minutes 1:00-1:29: Do reverse lunges with overhead presses (lunge backward, lifting arms overhead with each lunge; alternate sides).

Minutes 1:30-2:00: Do squats.

Repeat the circuit 4 more times. Beginners may want to incorporate 30 seconds of rest between each cycle.

Stay Connected

Just be sure not to overdo it, and if you have risk factors or a family history that suggests you shouldn’t drink, don’t use it as an excuse to start. (And excess alcohol intake is associated with a higher breast cancer risk.)

Hang out with healthy people

Yes, their good habits might rub off on you. Social networks matter, studies suggest, and a number of seemingly personal factors—such as happiness, obesity, smoking, and even loneliness—are strongly influenced by the people around you.

Spot stealthy salt

Up to 75% of the salt in our diets comes from packaged foods. This simple trick can keep your sodium intake in check: “Look for a 1-to-1 ratio of calories to sodium or less,” says Prevention advisor David L. Katz, MD, MPH, director of the Yale Prevention Research Center.

Test your posture

Stand up straight and count how long you can hold the pose at left before you have to put your foot down.

Repeat on the other side. If you can’t balance on each leg for at least 20 seconds, you aren’t standing as straight as you think you are, or your muscles are too weak to hold you in place.

Get the sleep you crave

A good cardio workout, such as a 30-minute jog, can help you snag more slow-wave sleep, the deep restorative kind you need to feel refreshed, according to sleep expert Michael J. Breus, PhD. (That’s not all.
