Tips for Women
Every year on the 8th of March, the social, economic and health achievements of women are acknowledged and celebrated through International Women’s Day. The overall health needs for a woman differ from that of a man. Even when they share the same risk levels for certain health conditions, the outcome would still differ for a woman. Four healthcare professionals from different departments within Mahkota Medical Centre share their best health tips in light of International Women’s Day.
Dr Nur Anis binti Md Hilmi, Medical Officer
Stress Management: Prolonged and unchecked stress is harmful to both physical and emotional health. Reduce your stress levels through healthy activities such as mindfulness and meditation
Dr Sharmini Arumugam, Aesthetic Medical Practitioner
Getting Adequate Sleep: Sleep is essential for both physical and mental well-being. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night for adults.
