Life in your 20s and 30s

It’s not always easy to establish and build a healthy lifestyle but your efforts now will bring rewards.

A good diet, regular exercise, reduced alcohol and drug consumption, caring for your sexual health, building healthy relationships and solid friendships will build a solid foundation for good health into the future. You have the opportunity in these years to extend your life as a ‘young’ woman and to improve the likelihood of being an active and vital mid-age and older woman.

For many women relationships and children are an important consideration at this time, as is work and career. Conception and pregnancy is an issue of great importance to some, while for others, contraception remains a minefield. Some women will compromise their professional ambitions for family duties or vice versa and often feel, or are made to feel, dissatisfied with the choices they have made.
