Things to do for Mother's Day
Mothers & your health. Name a better duo.
Moms are the ones who made you eat your veggies as a kid, cleaned up your scrapes and bruises & took care of you when you were sick.
And so on Mother’s Day, I want to flip the script. Instead of your mom focusing on your health, let’s focus on supporting our moms’ health.
What should I know about my mom's health?
Well for starters, let's look at the top 5 health issues facing women in the US according to WebMD:
- Heart disease
- Breast cancer
- Autoimmune diseases
That's a scary list. But don't worry — there are some things your mom can do to keep up with her health. Here's what the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services recommends:
- Routine screenings and checkups
- Add physical activity in their day
- Healthier eating habits
- Nixing bad habits, like smoking
- Reducing stress
- Getting quality sleep
These are a few ways you can encourage your mom to stay healthy this Mother’s Day. But you probably want a few things you can do today.
How can I give my mom a healthy Mother’s Day?
There's plenty of ways to make Mother's Day both happy & healthy. For starters, you could make a healthy brunch. Instead of going out to eat & racking up calories, stay in and make some healthy alternatives.
Or you could simply take a stroll through the neighborhood or even work in the garden? Getting out in the sun & doing physical activity is a great way to keep mom happy, healthy & wise.
Check out the video below for some ideas on what to gift Mom on her special day.
Whatever you do, make sure to tell your mom a Happy Mother’s Day from me.
And if you’re a mom reading this, Happy Mother’s Day. Thank you for all you do.
