The 19th annual National Women’s Health Week kicked off on Mother’s Day, May 13, and is celebrated through May 19, 2018. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health leads National Women’s Health Week to encourage all women to be as healthy as possible.
The week serves as a reminder for women to make their health a priority and build positive health habits for life.
What steps can you take for better health?
- Visit your doctor for a check-up and pre-screening exams.
- Exercise, exercise, exercise.
- Eat healthy.
- Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, texting while driving and not wearing a seatbelt.
- Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
- Plan for the future. Prepare for illness, incapacity, and end of life.
If you do not have an up to date estate plan, including a Will, Medical Directive, and Living Will, now is the time to put your affairs in order. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
