I couldn’t let the day pass without reminding everyone that National Women’s Health Week kicked-off today and will be celebrated through May 16. With the theme ”It’s Your Time,” the nationwide initiative encourages women to take simple steps to live a longer, healthier, and happier life. Isn’t that what we all strive for? So I encourage every woman out there to take a few minutes to visit http://www.womenshealth.gov/whw/ and pass it along to a friend. The site offers tips and important steps to help women improve their physical and mental health and lower their risks of certain diseases, including guidelines on physical activity, eating a nutritious diet, a list of necessary preventive screenings and regular checkups, and tips for managing our mental health, including getting enough sleep (I’m still working on that one) and managing stress.
Visit www.womenshealth.gov/whw/ and commit to take small steps today that will improve your health tomorrow. While you’re at it, encourage a friend to join you!
