I recently met a friend so we could go running together. We pushed our babies around the local park and dissected the complexities of life and the myth of “having it all.” We both do our best to balance our kids and our work, to support our husbands and our communities, to take time to enjoy friendships and to nurture ourselves. It’s hard to do.
But it is so much easier to find the energy to put into all those roles if we make the choice – every day – to be healthy. Whether that means an early morning run with a friend or making dinner at home instead of heading through the drive-thru, there are lots of little things we can do every day that can give us the strength to be all that we need to be.
Today – September 25th – is the 12th annual National Women’s Health and Fitness Day – a day that encourages women to take control of their health so they can do just that. All over the country there are health and fitness events geared toward this year’s theme of ”Think Healthy, Eat Healthy, Act Healthy . . . Be Healthy!”
So what can you to do honor the day in your own way? Below are some ideas to get you excited about taking charge of your health.
