Happy Women’s Health Week

Did you know that May 11-17 is National Women’s Health Week? While women should be thinking about and celebrating their health every week, it is great to have this week to bring more awareness to women’s health issues and to be proud of the health we do have! 

The campaign asks women to take steps to improve their health by:

  • Visiting a health care professional to receive regular checkups and preventative screenings
  • Getting active
  • Eating healthily
  • Getting enough sleep and managing stress
  • Avoiding unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, texting while driving and not wearing a seatbelt or bicycle helmet

These are behaviors that we should be doing all the time but for this special week I challenge you to do something extra for your health. It could be trying a new workout or eating more fruits and vegetables. Go to that doctor’s appointment that you have been putting off or allow yourself to get 8 hours of sleep each night. 

A little can go a long way! Take some time this week to appreciate your health and say thank you to your body. Image
