    Stay Well, Stay Safe

    Stay Well, Stay Safe

    Every day you learn something new. I was not aware that the last Wednesday in September since 2002 was designated National Women’s Health and Fitness Day.  The day is a public/private health partnership organized by the Health Information Resource Center (HIRC), a national clearinghouse for professionals who work in consumer health fields.  The goal of this day is to encourage women to take control of their health, learn the facts they need to make smart health choices, and to make time for regular physical activities.  The theme this year is to Stay Well, Stay Safe.

    What can you do to mark this day?

    1. If you have not seen your gynecologist and/or your primary care physician in over one year, please schedule your appointment.
    2. If you have not been exercising, consider doing something today.
    3. If you are exercising, try something new.
    4. To help reduce stress, start to meditate.
    5. Make an effort to get to bed on time so that you can get your  7 – 9 hours of sleep and see how you feel.
    6. Add an extra fruit or vegetable to your diet.
    7. Avoid processed food today and see how you feel.
    8. Add an extra glass of water to your routine.
    9. Continue to wear your mask when you leave your house.

    Secure Your Copy of Letters to My Sisters by Dr. Ngozi Osuagwu.

    The book discusses common gynecological and women’s health issues in a series of witty and entertaining letters. These letters, all educational, offer suggestions on what approaches to take in tackling the medical problems that typically bring women to an ob/gynecologist. The letters are spiced with art, a poem and quotes. Although its emphasis is on gynecology and women’s health, it touches on some other medical issues that make women visit their doctors.

    The second half of the book briefly discusses the most common gynecological conditions and also provides an overview of sexually transmitted infections. A list of annotated websites dealing with the different topics in the book is provided for the reader who wants to pursue each subject in depth.
