National Women’s Health Week is here! This annual celebration encourages women and girls to prioritize their health. This year, you’re invited to celebrate National Women’s Health Week with Wellbeats.
National Women’s Health Week
National Women’s Health Week begins each year on Mother’s Day. During this time, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health (OWH) encourages women and girls to reflect on their individual health needs and take steps to improve their overall health.
“Whether you continue your current activities or find news ones, now is a great time for all women and girls to focus on better health, especially those with underlying health conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular and respiratory conditions, and women 65 years and older,” according to the OWH.
Bring Awareness to Women’s Health with Wellbeats
Fitness, nutrition, and mindfulness are three areas that women and girls can focus on to improve their overall health and wellbeing during National Women’s Health Week and beyond.
- Get active. Wellbeats’ fitness classes range from gentle yoga to HIIT cardio and everything in between. Try Seven HIIT Wonder with Becky for an intense class that will raise your heart rate, or use small movements to make a big difference in Barreless Barre with Libby L.
- Prioritize healthy eating. Wellbeats’ expert-led, on-demand nutrition classes include nutrition education, cooking demonstrations, and delicious recipes. Take a crash course on nourishment in Whole Food Detox with Christina S., or boost your immune system by trying our Citrus Oatmeal Parfait with Chef Marshall O.
- Practice self-care for mental health. Wellbeats provides an approachable and accessible way to relax the mind and body through classes focused on meditation, breath, and movement. Focus on the healing power of gratitude in Gratitude Meditation with Chance Y., or realign the connection to your mind, your body, and your energy in Raise Your Vibration with Katie H.
Other Ways to Act Now
The OWH advises that National Women’s Health Week is a great time for family, friends, and the greater community to support women and help them achieve the best health possible. Here are a few ways you can act now:
- Make an appointment. Schedule your annual physical, and talk to your doctor, nurse, nurse practitioner, and/or physician assistant about any concerns or preventive care.
