Physical Things Women Want


Congress recently held hearings about women’s health issues. A respected panel of “experts” was convened to provide our diligent legislators with the information they need to make the laws that concern us. And by us, we’re not talking about the population in general. We are speaking about women, specifically.


Regardless about how you feel, as a women, about congress dictating what we can—and can’t—do with our bodies, you might at least be tempted to believe that they sincerely have our best interests at heart and that all of this concern for women’s health isn’t just a charade of political theater.


Yes, you might want to believe this, until you find out that the panel of womens’ health experts didn’t include any women. That’s right—not a single women was asked to be on the panel to discuss our personal health issues. It’s little consolation to note that a number of women who hold positions of power in Congress boycotted the hearing.


The point is that when it comes to our bodies and our health, it should be our choice. Most of us understand the need to serve the greater good—as long as it doesn’t come at the expense of our own physical health and well being.


That’s what this section is about—the physical things that women want, specifically relating to their health and fitness.


We have lots of things to talk about when it comes to our health, our bodies and our appearance. We are all very familiar with the challenge of growing older, which of course some of us handle differently than others. Sometimes it helps to discuss those challenges and to understand the strategies that different women use to address them.


But there are other, more important issues than aging that women need to be informed about. Health and wellness are probably at the top of the list, for obvious reasons. The pressures of kids, work, home and relationships can take a toll on a woman’s body. You need to eat right, exercise properly, and get enough sleep in order to be a healthier, happier you. Unfortunately, most of us just don’t have the time, patience or knowledge to do all of that right, so we want this section to be a place to come for solid information on how to stay healthy.


When it comes to our bodies, the physical things that women want are the most important things of all.
