National Women's Health Week is here! What have you done to participate? Honestly all these reminders keep me thinking about my last OB/Gyn and Well-Woman visits which were unfortunately a while ago. Time for me to get on the phone and start calling...
There is so much going on- sports and other lessons, meetings, family vacations, bills, groceries, date night, meetings with friends, etc, etc, etc... As the caretaker of the family, it's super easy to get caught up in the calendar reminders for everyone other than yourself... Not cool. A little scheduled maintenance goes a long way. It's important that moms take a second and assess their own health. Don't put it off. "Not having time to go" is not a plausible excuse.
Here is a quick checklist for mom:
Things you should do regularly:
Moms we run ourselves into the ground sometimes in order to make people happy and get everything accomplished. Sometimes you've got to stop and assess your health. Look in the mirror and be honest with yourself. How are you right now? Sadly your family can't read your mind, so if you need something... say it! It's your responsibility to take care of your body.
Don't die on me ladies!
