Disclosure: I received complimentary samples of Colgate and Colgate Total products as a thank you for posting. All opinions are strictly my own and were formed through personal testing of the product(s). You results may vary from mine.
As a mom, I often tend to take my own health for granted. I’m so wrapped up in my kids and their health and well being that I forget to take care of myself. That is something that I, personally, need to work on. I have high blood pressure and while I DO stay on top of that, the rest of my overall health could probably use an overhaul as well as checkups to make sure I’m a-ok.
One other thing I’ve been working on staying on top of is my smile. I’ve mentioned before that I love to use the Colgate Total® regimen to keep my teeth and gum health as healthy as possible. ( Advanced Whitening Toothpaste, Gum Health Mouthwash and 360 Total Advanced Floss-Tip Bristles Toothbrush ) These products are fantastic, taste great, work great and make my smile look great! So I’m very excited that this year, Colgate Total is supporting National Women’s Health Week (NWHW) by helping getting the word out and reminding women to put their health first. Go Colgate Total!
I know that I’m not the only mom out there that doesn’t get the health care check-up as timely as needed though. Many of us are like that. That’s why I’m so glad there are actual weeks devoted to reminding us to take care of ourselves. Weeks like the National Women’s Health Week.
What is National Women’s Health Week?
National Women’s Health Week 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.
When is National Women’s Health Week?
May 10 – 16, 2015
Mother’s Day kicks off the 16th Annual National Women’s Health Week. There are several things that we, women, can do to improve our physical and mental health including:
- Visit a doctor or nurse to receive regular checkups and preventive screenings.
- Get active.
- Eat healthy.
- 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.
Ladies, I invite you to join me in taking the National Women’s Health Week pledge and joining the National Women’s Health Week Thunderclap.
