In 2013, Jean Hailes for Women's Health (a national not-for-profit organisation) ran the very first national Women’s Health Week - a week dedicated to all women across Australia to make good health a priority.
The two biggest barriers for women not maintaining a healthy lifestyle are ‘lack of time’ and ‘health not being a priority’. Women’s Health Week is the time to put ourselves first, for just one week, and start making simple, positive changes that can be implemented daily, to last a lifetime.
So what will we do this month to prioritise our health?
- Tanya: "I'm going to stop drinking so much coffee and keep it to one cup a day."
- Karla: "I'm going to get out for more walks with Xavier in the pram now that the weather will improve".
- Tahlia: "I'm go to challenge myself to take my Glow powder everyday for 30 days, and drink more water."
- Eliza: "I'm going to make some time for me every day to relax, reflect and refocus."
- Tory: "I'm going to try to go to bed earlier and get more quality sleep."
- Tayla: "I'm going to create more balance in September so I can feel more content with every aspect of my life."
- Nicole: "I’m going to set up a bed time routine which includes tech free time, to improve my sleep."
- Macy: "I’m going to start drinking plenty of water, go for a daily walk, and go to the gym! "
- Chiara: “I’m going to start walking again and enjoy the Spring sun on my skin!”
- Amy: "I’m going to try daily meditation to help relieve stress and anxiety naturally."
