National Women's Health Week - May 9-15th

Posted: Friday, May 7, 2010 by Kelli Barrett in

Next week (May 9th - 15th) is National Women's Health Week!
The theme for 2010 is "It's Your Time"!

Think about that statement for a minute.....IT'S YOUR TIME! Your time to decide to get healthy, your time to do something for you, your time to love yourself unconditionally, your time to do what you need to do to change your life!
What are you waiting for?

As a wife and mother, I know that I can easily get caught up in the day to day routine of taking care of everyone else but me. We, as women, wear so many different hats - cook, housekeeper, chauffeur, sex machine (hee hee), referee ( if you have kids), accountant, counselor, etc - and many many times we ask for nothing in return. It is just in our DNA to be that way - right??

I say this all the time in my classes and to my clients - "You will be a better mother, wife, sister, daughter, athlete, employee, etc, etc, etc - just a better human being, when you are taking care of yourself as well as you take care of others!!"

So, I challenge all of you beautiful women out there to embrace the thought of putting you on your "to do" list everyday. Take the time to get to the gym, or take a walk with your friends in the park - make your favorite meal for dinner - take a nap in the middle of the day or go to bed an hour early - or whatever else you can do for YOU.

Talk to you soon,
