National Women's Health Week
During National Women's Health Week each year, millions of women take steps to improve their health. The week serves as a reminder for women to make their health a priority and build positive health habits for life.
What steps can I take for better health?
To improve your physical and mental health, you can:
Visit a health care provider for a well-woman visit (checkup), preventive screenings, and vaccines.
Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
Practice safe behaviors, such as quitting smoking, not texting while driving, and taking steps to protect yourself from sexually transmitted infections.
How can I take these steps?
It's not always easy to take steps for better health, and every woman has her own approach. Health isn’t one-size-fits-all. We’re all unique! We all have our own reasons for wanting to be healthy and ways of going about it. It can be hard to take steps for good health. But discovering what works best for you can help you build healthy habits — habits you’ll be more likely to stick to for a healthier, happier you. A great way to do that is to reflect on your health goals, what motivates you, and what's holding you back from being your healthiest you.
