Benefits news: October is national Women's Health Month

Sep 23, 2015

Make today joyfully fierce!

Daughter, sister, friend, mother, breadwinner, wife, partner, homemaker, family "doctor." With the many roles you play, it's not always easy to find the time and energy to take care of yourself. You give your best when you're feeling your best, so put yourself on top of your to-do list. 

Making sure to get all of your recommended health screenings and living a healthy lifestyle can reduce your risk of preventable diseases - and help keep you feeling and looking your best at every age.

This month, celebrate you, prioritize you! Along with eating right and exercising regularly, make time to unwind and savor your favorite pastimes.

  • Let it out - after a rough day, blow off steam with a walk around the block, or work out your feelings through journaling.
  • Recharge - Restore your energy and focus on sleeping at least 7 hours every night.
  • Tune in - Give yourself a healthy boost with music. Studies have shown that music can reduce depression and anxiety.  And if you get up and dance around a bit, you'll feel even better.
