Happy National Women's Health Week!

This week (May 15-19th) is National Women’s Health Week, a wellness initiative coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  


 “The truth is, being a healthy woman isn’t about getting on a scale or measuring your waistline—and we can’t afford to think that way...instead, we need to start focusing on what matters—on how we feel, and how we feel about ourselves,” says First Lady Michelle Obama (womenshealthmag.org). 


Get the family moving!
Here are the 5 pillars of National Women’s Health Week:


1. Get Active 
2. Eat Healthy 
3. Pay Attention to Mental Health, Stress Management, and Sleep 
4. Avoid Smoking
5. Get Preventative Screenings

  2. Excellent stuff--I love that this movement is getting attention in the blogsphere. There are small things we all can do to help the other women in our lives make healthier choices.
