With the day-to-day stresses of life, it’s easy for many of us to forget our own health. Without realizing it, women often neglect themselves as they care for others.
In honor of Women’s Health Week, we encourage you to take a moment to check-in with yourself. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you put yourself and your health first:
#1: Feed and fuel your body well
It can be very easy to choose convenience over health, especially when it comes to diet and exercise. Instead of driving into the fast food chain, try taking some time on Sundays to make your lunch for the week.
Move it or lose it! Get your heart pumping with a 30-minute walk between meetings or right after work. Ask a friend to join you, and you’ll benefit from quality time that refuels your body and your mind.
#2: Stay on top of health care appointments
It can be hard to remember to reschedule preventative appointments, but these check-ins are an important part of managing your health! Our team can help you stay on top of routine screenings, like annual women’s exams and seasonal physicals. We can also answer questions about prevention and your family health history to head off health challenges that may come up later.
#3: Harness those thoughts
Emotional and mental wellness are a crucial part of your health care. We have a qualified team of Behavioral Health Specialists at Broadway, who offer both counseling and, if needed, medication therapy management services. Whether you’re experiencing depression or navigating other types of challenges at home or at work, our team is here to help.
