5 Ways to Celebrate National Women’s Health and Fitness Day

Tuesday 26th is National Women’s Health and Fitness Day.
In the spirit of this day, we’ve put together a list of 5 ways you can celebrate women’s health and fitness.

Go Inward
Good health starts within. Too often our lives are so busy that we forget to remember ourselves. Spend a little time thinking about what you want for yourself and what fits your wellness goals. Practicing yoga, meditation, and even a daily drawing habit can help push you toward a more healthful and balanced life.

We can definitely recommend the 1 Giant Mind app. Super handy for anyone starting. http://www.1giantmind.org/

Go outward
If working on the inner stuff is important, it’s just as vital to do things in an outward fashion too. Take a long walk, go for a hike, play a sport, go out dancing or even meeting up with friends can have a major impact on your emotional well being. A perfect opportunity would be The Mornington Running Festival on this weekend with a health expo on the Saturday and Race Day on Sunday.

Get out there and have some fun! There’s a 1km kids dash, 5 and 10km fun run/walk or the Half Marathon 21.1km distance. http://www.morningtonrunningfestival.com/

Learn something new
There is nothing like stepping out of your comfort zone. It might be stretch and sometimes a little uncomfortable, but those growing pains can pay off. Try taking a new fitness class, learn about ayurveda, tinker with a new craft… anything outside your normal routine has the ability to encourage growth, which opens our eyes and sometimes new doors.

Eating healthfully might look good on paper, but once you’re in the thick of it, it may be challenging. Be gentle with yourself. Learn a new recipe, take a cooking class, educate yourself on the types of foods you consume. Find out where your food comes from and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Eat because it nourishes your body and find healthy foods that taste good!

Get a soft tissue treatment
What better way to take care of your health? The benefits can’t be overstated. It can help everything from an old sports injury, scar tissue, stress relief, headaches, fibromyalgia, TMJ, anxiety/depression or just good ole’ health and wellness maintenance.

But really, there is no reason to wait for a day to focus on your health and wellness. Each day is a chance to celebrate YOU and your health and good well-being is part of that.
