Did you know that August 28 is National Women’s Health & Fitness Day? This special day celebrates women each year and encourages all women to take the time to care for themselves, both physically and emotionally. So, with this holiday just around the corner, what will you do to celebrate yourself? We have some self-care recommendations to incorporate into your day not just on the 28th, but throughout the rest of the year as well!
Schedule a Doctor’s Appointment
When was the last time you saw a doctor for a general wellness exam? If it’s been more than a year, now is the time to call your physician and set up an appointment. Annual wellness exams are great for staying on top of your health and being proactive in catching any potential signs of medical problems before they progress into something serious.
Treat Yourself to a Healthy Meal
We get it; you’re a busy lady. But it’s important to make time for healthy, balanced meals. Make an effort on National Women’s Health & Fitness Day to treat yourself to at least one healthy, nutritional meal. This could be something you cook up for yourself or even order at your favorite restaurant. Consider, for example, a simple salad with plenty of fresh ingredients and protein. Or, if salad isn’t your thing, how about a nice plate of grilled salmon (great for your heart health), a side of steamed veggies, and a serving of whole grain rice?
Do Something Fun and Active
Working exercise into your routine doesn’t have to mean slaving away on the treadmill at your local gym for an hour straight. Instead, have some fun with it! If you have children, take them out for a fun day at the beach or local park. Or, get some friends together to play your favorite sport.
Give Yourself a Confidence Boost
Why not use this as an opportunity to give yourself a nice confidence boost? If you have excess fat that you’re having trouble shedding, consider exploring Coolsculpting as a means of getting rid of that unwanted fat and looking your absolute best in your own skin.

These are just a few potential ideas for celebrating National Women’s Health & Fitness Day this year. Whatever you decide to do, have some fun with it and remember that self-care matters for women of all ages and walks of life!
