mum's thoughts, women, women's health

Mothers are the most hard-working people around, they keep a 24/7 job, all-year long, with no vacation leaves or under time privileges and mums do this without salary. They double as a chauffeur, a playmate, a nanny, a cook, a laundrywoman and an all-around wonder woman who gets every job done. Needless to say, there is really no room for mum to fall ill lest no one will take her numerous place or the world will become one chaotic place to live in.

Unfortunately, in the midst of all the things mum has to do and all the many roles she has to perform, her needs and concerns almost always become the last priority.  There seem to be too much on her plate that she will put off her dentist appointment and routine check ups for the more pressing concerns. Truth is these concerns will simply keep on cropping up and mum must really set aside a day in her busy schedule to go to all her medical appointments. After all, making sure that mum is in tip top shape is the best way she can be sure that she can perform all her duties and responsibilities as long as she can.

So mums make sure you visit the dentist and your OB-Gyne and make sure to finish that physical examination you have been eyeing to have since this year started. Get an updated prescription glasses and make sure you stock up on your vitamins, too. Remember that it pays to put premium on your health. It also pays to be abreast with the latest on women health issues and read the news, health journals, or  these breast cancer facts online. Apart from going to your doctor, knowledge is also one important factor in keeping you fit and healthy.
