Listen Up Ladies!
Hey Ladies! Make time for YOU!
Because you are so good at taking care of others, your own personal health and wellbeing often becomes a lesser priority. But by doing this, you can put yourself at risk for developing health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. So starting now, during National Women’s Health Week, take control of our health!
- Exercise more! Shoot for at least 30 minutes daily, or at least a total of 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate physical activity weekly
- Build a better plate! Include more fruits and vegetables in your daily eating habits. One easy way to do this is by filling half of your plate at lunch and dinner with fruits & vegetables.
- Stay on top of annual health screenings, and talk to your healthcare provider frequently about any changes you may notice with your body.
- Avoid risky behaviors, such as smoking and not wearing a seatbelt
- Pay attention to your mental health. This means making it a priority to get enough sleep, and finding healthy ways to manage daily stress.
