We know women are leading busier lives than ever before and we have a tendency to let ourselves slip low on our priority lists. The two biggest barriers for women not maintaining a healthy lifestyle is ‘lack of time’ and ‘health not being a priority’.
However, the health of those we love starts with us. By investing more time in ourselves, we are better able to look after the ones we love and care about.
In 2013, Jean Hailes for Women’s Health ran the very first national Women’s Health Week. Now in its 6th year, Women’s Health Week is the time to put yourself first and get talking about women’s health.
The event continues to gain groundswell nationally and Jean Hailes provides health information and free resources to support thousands of subscribers and hundreds of local events organised by communities Australia-wide.
The Jean Hailes website has a variety of resources available, tackling a new women’s health issue each day. The program for this week is:
- Monday 3rd – Silent Topics
- Tuesday 4th – Happier Hormones
- Wednesday 5th – Mental Wellbeing
- Thursday 6th – Pelvic Power
- Friday 7th – Wired & Tired
