National Women's Health Week

National Women's Health WeekThe week following Mother's Day is National Women's Health Week, May 10 - 16, 2009). Coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office on Women's Health, the goal is to get women to make their health a priority and take some simple steps to improve their health such as:
  • Getting at least 2.5 hours of moderate physical activity, 1 hour and 15 minutes of vigorous physical activity, or a combination of both each week
  • Eating a nutritious diet (for help with this, we like the resources our friends at NutriInfo put together http://www.nutriinfo.com/)
  • Visiting a health care professional for regular checkups and preventative screenings
  • Avoiding risky behaviors, like smoking and not wearing a seat belt
  • Paying attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
  • If you're over 40, get a mammogram
