Making your health a priority is challenging when there is so much to do before year-end. Have a look at these 2021 wellness holidays that put you first!
This is a friendly reminder that YOU are important and deserve some care! So, in honor of making space for our own health, we bring you these celebration-worthy health and wellness holidays this fall. Put these dates on your calendar and a reminder (and permission!) to indulge in some TLC.
Missed one? Makeup days are for grown-ups, too!
Research supports that positive thinking can have the power to reduce stress levels, boost your immunity, and even improve heart health. Now that's a reason to see the glass half full! Start a gratitude journal today to train your thoughts to the positive.
This holiday promotes exercising and staying active with your family. After all, exercising with others is fun and boosts your happy hormones. Climbing a mountain, running a family-friendly trail, or going for a bike ride together is bonding when you all accomplish a shared goal.
Show yourself some love by taking care of your heart! Here are a few things you can do today to reduce your risk of heart disease:
Show your boobies some love by going for your annual exam or mammogram this October. Learn how to do a self-exam, too, so you're familiar with your bosom.
It's a fact: smiling every day can make you happier. Studies show that turning a frown upside-down can help relieve stress, reduce pain, and improve your immune system. Why not share some joy on this day by doing a random act of kindness, sharing jokes with others, and making sure that everyone around you gets in on your joyous mood?
Check in with yourself and your loved ones. If your mental health is taking a dip, schedule an appointment with a therapist on this day. Emotional health can promote success in your everyday activities and relationships.
The best way to love your skin is to keep it cancer-free and nurtured. This month, take some time out to get your skin checked, buy some natural products appropriate for the season and your skin type, and identify steps to take to get your skin glowing, healthy, and radiant.
Did you sneak some Halloween candy? We sure did! Get that gorgeous smile sparkling by scheduling a visit with your oral hygienist or trying some DIY teeth whitening tips. Brush day is perfectly timed to remind your kids (and yourself) of the importance of dental hygiene.
Drizzle chocolate over everything you love and indulge in some chocolate-covered candy, fruits, donuts, or pancakes. If you want to up the health factor, remember that dark chocolate provides your body with vital minerals. It's rich in antioxidants that can lower cholesterol levels and improve heart health, among other things. When your family catches you indulging in more chocolate dipping, tell them you're doing it for your health!
