National Women's Health Week

12:00 AM

I don't normally post on weekends, but I just realized that today is the final day of National Women's Health week and I just needed to share this with my readers!  Health isn't just not being sick.  It's about taking care of yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally.  Of course it's important to eat healthy and exercise regularly, but that doesn't always happen.  Sadly, neither does taking the time to really make sure we're healthy.  There are so many different ways women can work to be healthy besides going for a run or eating your vegetables (although that's something we should all do).  It's so important to make sure we get enough sleep, take a daily vitamin, or take time to relieve stress.  When we don't do these things, we aren't able to fully be the women we can be.  It takes away from all of the wonderful opportunities and talents we have when we're unhealthy, stressed, or exhausted.  We have beautiful minds, but they can't function properly unless we take care of our bodies.

Yes, I am connecting women's health to women's empowerment.  I think we should be the healthiest women we can be so we can live up to our full potential, and teach younger women how they should treat and appreciate their own bodies and minds.  Being healthier means we will be happier, which will lead to more positive images of ourselves.  Images of ourselves won't just be based on our physical characteristics, but also our personality and genuine happiness.  This positivity is contagious, and it becomes easier and easier to sustain as you actively practice it.  After a while, it becomes second nature.  Think of how wonderful it would be for women to have a positive image of themselves because they are physically healthy and mentally ready to take on the world.  This decision to be healthy doesn't just impact ourselves.  It impacts the people around us and the people looking to us for advice or inspiration.

Even though National Women's Health Week is over, I encourage you to take some time to really consider how healthy you are.  Not just physically, of course.  Take a look at your sleep schedule.  Find a way to relieve some built-up stress.  Use just a few minutes of your day to pamper yourself.  Just do something that makes you feel like the best possible version of yourself.  I know this sounds cliche and easier said than done, but I promise you it is worth it.
