If you have a family then chances are that their health is important to you.
Not only do you set a great example but healthy mums are better able to care for their family too - there are many benefits to the family when mum takes care of her health! Image courtesy of Wikimedia commons.
Managing this isn't easy. Nutrition, physical activity, medications, vaccinations, check ups - and that's before you even have to deal with any illness or injury!
Healthy mum = healthy family!
It's hard to care for your family if you feel run down. Looking after yourself ensures that you are better able to look after your family.
Added bonus: You will set a good example! Look after yourself so that your children see that making healthy choices is a great skill to have and value their wellbeing.
