6 Ways to Celebrate National Women's Health & Fitness Day

Set for September 28th, Women's Health and Fitness Day is nearing! Celebrated nationwide, females of all ages and generations are encouraged to participate. And with more than 500 groups across the country hosting events, joining in on the fun can be easily achieved and enjoyed!

6 Ways to Celebrate Women's Health and Fitness Day

1. Join the Coordinated Health Events
Establishments are already committed in the celebration of Women's Health and Fitness Day. Local organizations include senior centers, hospitals, health departments, colleges and much more! Do not hesitate to reach out to these groups for more information within your community.

2. Utilize Media
Facebook and mobile apps such as Meetup are excellent resources to further identify locations and people participating in Women's Health and Fitness Day. Go to these events with close friends and family or go unaccompanied to meet new people!

3. Search for Fitness Classes
Fitness deals and coupons are frequently offered via the internet, mobile apps or in the local paper. Search throughout the deals and choose an adventurous activity you normally may not try! For instance, break out of your comfort zone and try a spinning class or hot yoga session!

4. Meet with Girlfriends
Meet your close girlfriends for a couple of hours or make it a full day's event! Gather for morning coffee and cultivate meaningful, stimulating conversation. After coffee, go for a walk or hike and pack a nutritious picnic lunch. Prepare dinner together or go to the new local restaurant and try new foods! End the day with a relaxing yoga session. Regardless of the activity chosen, disconnect from mobile devices and live in the moment!

5. Female Family Time
Make a family girls day! Getting the younger generation exposed to a healthy lifestyle is valuable not only for their growth, but instills healthful choices and decisions they can for a lifetime. Go to the park, prepare a nutritious meal or any sort of activity that promotes health. Getting grandmothers involved is an additional way to include all generations!

6. Go Solo
Make time for yourself - it is certainly okay to enjoy a little "you" time. Since mental health is just as important as physical health, use this time to decompress and reflect on personal goals. Go to your "happy place" by reading your favorite book, meditating, running to your favorite music or own thoughts or simply take a warm bath.
