Spring has sprung and most of us have completed our spring cleaning. May is here and it’s mental health awareness month. Let’s take a time out and make sure that we are OK. Check in with that one person you know who is the “strong one.” Call your family and friends to make sure they are doing alright mentally. Yes, even children should have mental health checkups! There is no shame in seeking help for our mental health. If we don’t care for ourselves we can not be available physically or mentally for others that we love ❤️.
Please contact your primary care provider or specialist if you are in need of help. There are also crisis hotlines available via text or phone. Please don’t suffer in silence. #mentalhealthmatters
Put your pink on and join in the fight against breast cancer! Call or visit a loved one and make sure that they are up to date on their yearly mammogram. Are you completing your monthly self-breast exams? Not sure how to complete them? Go to https://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/breast-self-exam for more information.
Just dropping a friendly reminder that tomorrow February 7, 2020, is National Wear Red Day! We join together tobring awareness and to help fight against heart disease and stroke.
Cardiovascular disease is prevalent in women. Did you know that cardiovascular diseases kill a woman about every 80 seconds? That’s mind-blowing!! Ladies, I know that we are busy with our careers, being mothers, and wives, but when will you make time for you? If we don’t take care of ourselves both physically and mentally, how can we be there for the ones that we love?
High blood pressure and cardiovascular disease are hereditary in my family. To help reduce my cardiovascular risks I have stopped eating meat (besides lean/ heart-healthy fish), reduced stress, and started exercising regularly. What will you do to prevent your risks?
