Women’s Health Week 2018
Women are great at caring for others, but often put themselves last when it comes to health. Grampians Community Health celebrated Women’s Health Week 2018, with an event designed for women to enjoy the company of friends, and relax. The ‘Girls Night In’ event was packed with activities for women to learn how to take care of themselves and have fun. We had health check, a beauty corner, love languages survey with information about relationship, personality test, fun and laugh. We also had the pleasure to have a Dietitian from Stawell Regional Health, who talked about the difference between dieting and creating mindful eating habits, and a representative of NGS Sports and leisure services with an open invitation to all, to take action and be proactive about physical health.
“It is vital to have the support of local business. We had the support of Stawell Toyota, Stawell Amcal Pharmacy and Solace Beauty Lounge and Wellness Spa, this support enables opportunities to promote the importance of women taking care of their physical, mental health as well as personal relationships, and how they can seek help when a problem arises” said Corrina Graham Manager at Grampians Community Health.
According to the Jean Hailes 2018 survey:
50.8% of women said they are overweight or obese, 34.3% does not get time to themselves on a weekly basis, and 23.9% cannot afford to see a health professional when they needed one.
