How to Celebrate National Women's Health & Fitness Day


5 Ways to Celebrate National Women’s Health and Fitness Day

September 27th is National Women’s Health and Fitness Day. Hundreds of organizations countrywide will be hosting a variety of noncompetitive events covering everything from group walks to health seminars. I've gathered just some of the fitness events around Louisville this month to help you get involved!

Louisville Fitness Events During September:

Dashing Diva's 5k /10k Sep 27-30

UofL Morning of Mindfulness

Bike to Beat Cancer

Shirley's Way 5k Sep 30th

Women's Self Defense Class

Fall Labyrinth Walk Sep 17th

Bark in The Park Walk/Run Sep 23rd

Hike at Turkey Run Sep 30th

And, in the spirit of this "holiday", I’ve put together a list of 5 ways you can celebrate women’s health and fitness - regardless if there’s an organization participating near you.

Go inward

Good health starts within. Too often our lives are so busy that we forget to remember ourselves. Spend a little time thinking about what you want for yourself and what fits your wellness goals. Practicing yoga, meditation, and even a daily drawing habit can help push you toward a more healthful and balanced life.

Go outward

If working on the inner stuff is important, it’s just as vital to do things in an outward fashion too. Take a long walk, go for a hike, play a sport, go out dancing or even meeting up with friends can have a major impact on your emotional well being.

Learn something new

There is nothing like stepping out of your comfort zone. It might be stretch and sometimes a little uncomfortable, but those growing pains can pay off. Try taking a new fitness class, learn about ayurveda, tinker with a new craft… anything outside your normal routine has the ability to encourage growth, which opens our eyes and sometimes new doors.

Eat

Eating healthfully might look good on paper, but once you’re in the thick of it, it may be challenging. Be gentle with yourself. Learn a new recipe, take a cooking class, educate yourself on the types of foods you consume. Find out where your food comes from and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Eat because it nourishes your body and find healthy foods that taste good!

Get a Massage

What better way to celebrate a holiday than with a massage? The benefits of massage can’t be overstated. Massage can help everything from an old sports injury, scar tissue, stress relief, headaches, fibromyalgia, sciatica, anxiety/depression or just good ole’ health and wellness maintenance. Reserve your time here.

But really, there is no reason to wait for a holiday to focus on your health and wellness. Each day is a chance to celebrate YOU and your health and good well-being is part of that.

All good things,

Jess
