The article presents information on the lifestyle of French women. They have a certain savoir faire when it comes to life, health and looking after themselves. Known for their sophistication, trim figures and appreciation of the good things in life, they ensure each day is not just another round of work and chores in the home by placing high priority on their health. They exercise by running up and down stairs looking for things, pushing a child on a swing, walking their kids to and from school, and going on foot, said British author Helena Frith Powell.
