Enough ink has flown over the topic of women’s health and fitness.

Breast cancer, ovarian cancer, PCOD, and cervical cancer are only a few of the many that have the potential to claim the lives of millions of women across the globe. Therefore, with centuries of history that shall corroborate the fact that the world has never made survival easy for women, it only makes sense that women know about the potential threats to their health and visit a doctor before the conditions exacerbate.
One of the major factors of death in women, breast cancer affects at least 1 in 8 women every year in the United States. The rates keep changing every year with the geography, but one thing that remains a constant is the monstrosity of this fatal disease. It is, therefore, imperative that women are made aware of the symptoms to be able to understand the onset of the disease and reach out for immediate medical intervention.

Being a mom is hard work. Whether you are a stay-at-home or a working mom, having to juggle multiple responsibilities and knowing that your offspring’s life highly depends on you can absolutely be dreary. Most of the time, moms need to make personal adjustments too just to cope with such situation. Once you become a mom, you tend to put your little one’s needs first before yours. And that’s where it gets a little too overwhelming.
But when you stop caring for yourself, your ability to care for your child will also be affected. “I am a mom of four and as far as I remember, I spent most of my adulthood caring for my children,” shares Tina, a 43-year-old mom. “I start my day at 5:00am, fixing my kids’ baon and preparing them for school. Once they leave the house, I go on with my usual routine- clean the house, do the laundry, check their assignments, prepare dinner, wash the dishes and then put them to bed. Sometimes my husband jokes that I don’t time for him anymore as I am too focused on being a good mom! But funnily though, that is true. We don’t get to spend quality time anymore,” she quips. “Don’t get me wrong but I love being a mom because it is really fulfilling. It’s just that by being too focused on being a good mom, I have neglected other
important things as well” she added.
