Tip of the Week

The 20th annual National Women’s Health Week kicked off on Mother’s Day and is celebrated through Saturday, May 18. It’s a great reminder to all women to work on their health. The week’s goal is to encourage all women to be as healthy as possible and was created by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health.

The steps that build a foundation of good health for women are actually the same as for everyone:

-- Visit a health care provider for a well-woman visit (checkup), preventive screenings, and vaccines.

-- Get active.

-- Eat healthy.

-- Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.

-- Practice safe behaviors, such as quitting smoking, not texting while driving and taking steps to protect oneself from STDs.

Health isn’t one-size-fits-all, so it can be hard to take steps for good health. But, experts suggest working on finding what small changes work best for you. From those changes you can help you build healthy habits — habits you’ll be more likely to stick to for a healthier, happier you.

One step is to use the Office of Women’s Health online tool to uncover customized tips to help you take the next step on your health journey. Get started at womenshealth.gov/nwhw/find-your-health
