It’s time to put the focus on your health and well-being and what better way than participating in Women’s Health Week – September 3 -7.
Promoted by Jean Hailes for Women’s Health, an Australian national not-for-profit organisation, the campaign has been a part of the Australian health calendar since 2013.
“By signing up you’ll receive free health tips, recipes, videos, podcasts and more, aimed at inspiring you to live a healthier life,” says Jean Hailes director Janet Michelmore AO.
Most women spend much of their adult life putting family first and forget about their own health. We need to remember to put our own oxygen mask on before we help others. That includes making time for health appointments as well as keeping active and eating a well balanced diet.
Did you know that the two biggest barriers for women not maintaining a healthy lifestyle are ‘lack of time’ and ‘not making health a priority’?
The Women’s Health Week wants to change all of that and encourages women to join with their friends to put the focus back on their health.

Self-investment is the best investment we can make. This means investing in our health and well-being and making this a priority in our life.
Part of Women’s Health Week is the social media campaign #MyHealthFirst which encourages women to start putting their health first and make positive changes.
Join women of all ages and share your selfie on your favourite social media platform and show that you are putting good health first. Use the hashtags #MyHealthFirst, #WomensHealthWeek and tag @JeanHailes
Over the next few weeks I will be writing about ways we can all improve our health and well-being. It’s time to put yourself and your health first.
After all we only have one body, so we need to look after ourselves.
Will you sign up to be part of Women’s Health Week and make your health a priority?
