National Women’s Health Week – “It’s Your Time”

Posted Mar 05 2010 9:27am

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!
