Are you a woman? Have you given much thought to your health and wellbeing lately?
If not, now is your chance – it's Women's Health Week from September 2 to 6!
Organised by Jean Hailes, this national event is all about prompting Australian women to make their health and happiness a priority.
According to the official website, each day of Women's Health Week will focus on a different aspect of wellbeing.
Today's (September 3) theme is 'Ourselves,' and women across the country are being encouraged to put their hectic lives on hold for a moment and take a little time out for themselves.
It's common for women to forget about their own needs with so much going on – but this can lead to stress and other health problems.
Other theme titles include 'Move,' 'Eat' and 'Networking,' which encourage women to stay active, keep an eye on what they're consuming and enjoy some time with family and friends.
You can receive tips and advice on how to improve your health by checking out the Women's Health Week website.
This is the first time such an event has ever been held, reveals Dr Elizabeth Farrell, ambassador of Jean Hailes Women's Health Week.
"As women, it's so important we are active in the decisions we make about our health because everything we do relies on us maintaining good physical and emotional health," said Dr Farrell in an August 17 statement.
She said the best part of Women's Health Week is that, because it's online, people from all over Australia can take part.
There are a variety of events happening around the country, too. So get on the website and get involved.
You have to register to be a part of Women's Health Week, but it's absolutely free.
And it's absolutely worth it!
As Dr Farrell says, "no matter what stage of life you're at, you'll be sure to find something interesting to learn more about."
If you want to make your wellbeing a priority, you may want to consider your private health insurance options.
With a comprehensive health insurance policy, you should be able to get the medical treatment and procedures you require if and when you need them.
