Women & Mental Health


May is Mental Health Awareness Month! This is the perfect time for women to make their health (mental & physical) a priority.


A great way to start is to schedule appointments for annual checkups - vision, dental, mammogram, pap smear, and any other screenings you may need. This year I made sure to schedule my vision and dental appointments along with the children; that way, I could kill two birds with one stone. Thankfully, my health care provider reminds me of my annual pap smear, and places like Advanced Radiology usually call, text, or email you a reminder of your mammogram. So there are no excuses, ladies!


The CDC recognizes the week of Mother's Day, this year May 14 - 20, as "National Women's Health Week" and their website provides a wealth of information for women on how to take better care of themselves, including mental health. Take some time to view the information provided and hopefully, you will gain some valuable tips. I know I did.


Lately, I have been struggling with many issues and I decided to seek professional counseling. I realized that although we may feel comfortable talking with friends and family, our venting may become burdensome to them, and that's not fair. So, grab your keys, hop in the car, and go talk to your therapist. Or, if telehealth is an option, log on and let it out! Counseling has helped me, and it affords me the opportunity to get away from home, even if it is only for an hour.


Comment and share if you have some tips on how you are managing your mental health. As always thanks for visiting.
