Did you know that May is Women’s Health Month? It’s kind of fitting, since I have Celiac’s Disease (which I will be talking about next week because it’s also Celiac Disease Awareness Month) and I try to be health-conscious due to that. May apparently is a fantastic month for health and awareness all the way around!
Not only do I have the Celiac’s Disease, but I was also diagnosed with Hypothyroidism last year. Both of those conditions are autoimmune disorders, which means that my immune system attacks itself when I get sick, instead of attacking all the bad germs.
As you can imagine, these two issues have taught me to be very careful when being around others who are sick, and to be able to recognize my triggers. And my top triggers? Stress and bad diet! So I’m constantly trying to simplify and make sure I eat gluten-free, in order to maintain good health.
As a result, as women go, I’m one who is pretty careful and pretty sensitive to her body. Sometimes it doesn’t work. Sometimes it does. I do the best I can! But it’s definitely a top priority. Because if I’M not healthy, I can’t participate in life with my family and friends like any normal person. And we can’t have that!
So when I was shared this info-graphic on women’s health by Oscar Insurance, I knew it would be perfect for all of us to take to heart! Where do YOU fall into the chart?
I love this! So simple and easy to see exactly what you should be doing to maintain good health! Of course, we all have our health routines, but I would venture to say, if you’re not doing ANY of the above…you might want to give it a thought! If you’re interested in finding more about Oscar, you can check out some more NY and NJ health insurance information here.
So where do you fall in the categories above? What steps have you taken this month to be a healthier woman?
