National Women’s Health Week, May 10-16, 2015, is an observance led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health.
The goal is to empower women to make their health a priority. The week also serves as a time to help women understand what steps they can take to improve their health. The 16th annual National Women’s Health Week kicks off on Mother’s Day, May 10, and is celebrated until May 16, 2015.
What does it mean to be a well woman?
It’s a state of mind. It’s being as healthy as you can be. And, most importantly, it’s about taking steps to improve your physical and mental health:
Visit a health care professional to receive regular checkups and preventive screenings.
Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, texting while driving, and not wearing a seatbelt or bicycle helmet.
