Happy Women's Health Month!

Hi There!


It's national women's health month! These days it seems like there's a never ending list of exams, checkups, and screenings all pertaining to a woman's health.


You could spend your entire lifetime in the doctor's office, or at least, in the waiting room.


Fortunately, you don't have to worry about it all right now.


There's a way to condense the amount of tests you have done each year.


See the graphic below. Thanks to Oscar Insurance for providing this cool graphic that helps de-mystify all those yearly check-ups! They are a new type of health insurance provider in NJ and NY, moving into Cali and Texas soon, that offers many services that help their members take better control of their health, for example their Doctor on Call service. Through the Oscar app, their members can speak directly with their doctor with the Doctor on Call service with any health questions they may have, without having to make an appointment or even leave their house!

Okay, so that's a lot to remember! Most importantly, Give yourself a good health foundation by taking charge of your health now.


Be sure to eat nutrient-dense foods.
Energy comes from what you eat, not from energy drinks.


Workout several times a week. This is something that
I love doing and ties in with my third point. Strength training is something that can be done in a gym or at home, using resistance bands and body weight.


Manage the stress in your life. Find a hobby that you love, and no Pinterest is great, but pinning does not count as a hobby. Get alone and pray and read Scripture. Keep a prayer journal


Keep a fitness and nutrition journal. I have pen and paper journal, but I'm also part of an online community that lets me send out a notificatioan whenever I complete a workout, and I post my meals for the week on my fridge.


Set goals for yourself. Having trouble breaking those goals down? Hire a personal trainer or a fitness coach that has experience in areas that you want to work on.


These are all tools I use to manage my health.


Are there any specific tools you've found motivate you or inspire you to take care of your health? Share them in the comments below!
