Every day should be Mother’s Day! This month, celebrate being a mom by committing to better health.

By May 26, 2022 No Comments

You always put others first – your baby, the other children, your own parents, and other family members, maybe even your friends and coworkers too. But prioritizing your health – both physical and mental – has never been more important. Take a few moments to focus on your own health, and commit to at least one of these suggested steps this month:

  • Continue to protect yourself against COVID-19
  • Schedule your annual physical and other health appointments
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Get moving and stay active
  • Eat well-balanced meals and snacks
  • Practice self-care for your mental health
  • Find healthy ways to manage stress
  • Create good sleep habits
