About National Women’s Health Week
This week is set aside as a reminder for women to take charge of their health and build healthy, long-term habits. This year, we celebrate the 19th annual Women’s Health Week beginning on Mother’s Day and extending through the 19th. The US Department of Health and Human Services leads this initiative and seeks to encourage women all over the country to take steps to be as healthy as possible.
What You Can Do
National Women’s Health Week is an ideal time to get involved in your health and to set an example for any other women in your life. Some great ways to observe the week include:
- Visiting your doctor for a physical and preventive screening tests
- Starting a regular exercise routine
- Improving the quality of your diet
- Getting plenty of sleep, managing your stress levels, and otherwise caring for your mental health
- Choosing an unhealthy habit to quit, such as smoking or texting while driving
- Show your support for National Women’s Health Week on your social media pages to raise awareness and encourage the other women you know to do the same
Taking these steps can help women of all ages lay the foundation for a lifetime of good health. Whether you are 18 or 90, making healthy choices can help you feel your best every day.
