Self-care Is Not Selfish

In the midst of raising children, working, caring for parents and so much more, women tend to put their own needs aside, including healthcare. For today’s modern woman, there are never enough hours in the day to accomplish it all. Remembering to take time out each year to get a well-woman exam is one of the best ways to maintain and improve your health.

Well-woman exams are an important part of preventative care and are the first step in detecting disease. Other proactive care, such as monthly breast self-exams, is equally important and should become a part of every woman’s lifestyle. Your doctor should also provide guidance on diet, exercise and contraception care.

When you care for so many, remember to fit in care for your own health and wellbeing.
