I’m in need of some Namaste myself- Yoga was packed this AM, and there wasn’t room for my mat. UGH. I’ll try again on Sunday morning.
In the meantime, I’m going to chill out in one of these comfy mindful graphic sweatshirts! These sweatshirts are the perfect comfy piece for any wardrobe!

If the cost of tickets is preventing you, or someone you know, from attending, the Mommycon ladies want to help. Please apply for the scholarship program here.
If you are a military mama, or military dependent, check out this awesome complimentary/discount ticketing program here.
It’s only fitting that Women’s Health Week starts on Mother’s Day. While not every woman is a mother, everyone has a woman they care about in their life. National Women’s Health week is May 13- May 19, 2018.
The Women’s Health Week website has all sort of great guides and resources all about how women at any stage of life can care for themselves. And they are SIMPLE STEPS!
Here are just a few daily choices that women can make to live a little more healthier:
A few other helpful hints that are good for your body & mind as well as your wallet…
If you have health insurance, don’t forget to get your annual check-up/exam (it’s covered for free under all health insurances in the US)! You can take that time to address health questions with your PCP. If you don’t have health insurance, many Planned Parenthood Clinic offer annual exams (in addition to annual reproductive health exams) for free or very low cost.
If you don’t belong to a gym or health club, many employers offer discounts or work with gyms to offer discounted memberships. If you aren’t a gym person, check out your local parks. Lots of parks in our local area have special walking loops and even fitness stations (Mast Park in Santee has both!). Other parks in San Diego with fitness/exercise stations include: Mission Bay Park, Embarcadero Parks North & South, Tidelands Park near the base of the Coronado Bridge as you arrive in Coronado, Hilton Head Park in Rancho San Diego, Chollas Lake Park, and Morley Field (near Balboa Park). If your local park doesn’t have a fitness course, play on the jungle gym or go for a walk!
Taking care of your skin is a great way to practice a little self-care and relax. Here is my DIY Frugal Facial.
And the easiest step I can recommend to better your health: Have a glass of water! We have all sorts of water bottles at home, including infuser bottles like this one. The kids each have a water bottle too!
And if you are a budget, don’t forget to check out freebie sites for health and beauty freebie- I’ve gotten free SPF, skin care products, a pedometer, and vitamins!
I’d love to hear from you: What simple steps do you incorporate into your life to improve your health? Guys, you can comment too! Better health is for everyone, not just ladies!
