Why should I take special care of my health in my later years?
Just as a girl's body changes when she becomes a woman, so a woman’s body changes when her childbearing years end. Menopause and aging cause changes in bone strength, muscle and joint strength and flexibility, and overall well-being.
A woman can make a big difference in living her later years with energy and good health by:
- eating well
- drinking a lot of liquids
- getting regular exercise
- treating illness early
- staying active
