Self-care is all the rage these days and more and more women are coming to the realization that we need to pour into ourselves before we can pour into anyone else.  When you say you love and honor yourself, do you really love and honor yourself enough?  That’s where Judith Dials comes in; she founded Mature Enough (M.E.), an organization that teaches ladies how to love themselves ENOUGH, which will help them receive the benefits of self-love and a life of pure inner happiness and better relationships.

Self-Care in the Summertime

by CLS

Summer is officially here!  Time for lazy lounging by the pool or at the beach, barbecues, picnics, flip flops, long walks, and fun in the sun!

Aside from maintaining summer haircare and skincare, getting enough rest and indulging in nutritious foods, take the time during these beautiful summer days to pep up your mental and emotional health as well.

The sun is a natural producer of Vitamin D, one of the many nutrients essential to boosting your mood and warding off the blues.  Get creative – and take some of your indoor activities outside!  Given the longer hours of daylight, there’s lots more opportunity to get some sunshine!

Mental Health First Aid USA, a division of the National Council for Behavioral Health lists 15 activities to keep you feeling your best this summer.

  1. Ditch the couch and relax outdoors.
  2. Go out for a stroll.
  3. Explore your local farmer’s markets.
  4. Join a community garden – or start your own!
  5. Tidy one small space at a time.
  6. Make a summer feel-good playlist of your favorite music.
  7. Try a new exercise (swimming, anyone?)
  8. Dine al fresco – have a picnic!
  9. Look for interesting things going on in your community.
  10. Start or continue a journal.
  11. Reconnect with a relative or friend.
  12. Practice mindfulness – take a yoga class or begin meditation sessions.
  13. Do an at-home spa day.
  14. Explore new places in your town.
  15. Do a weekly personal needs assessment.

Self-care is important; and when you are intentional about taking care of yourself – mind, body and spirit – you tend to feel more connected to yourself and others.

Self-care is all the rage these days; with women at the forefront of this revolution.  With all the roles women play on a daily basis, it’s important that we take care of ourselves so we can effectively participate in all of these roles – truly without health, we can’t do anything!

Enter Dr. John Lipman, MD of the Atlanta Interventional Institute.  Dr. Lipman is world-renowned for his experience and skills in the Uterine Fibroid Embolization technique (also known as UFE), which is a non-surgical, outpatient procedure that has improved the life of thousands of fibroid patients over the last 22+ years.  He is a highly sought-after lecturer and also volunteers his time: as Volunteer Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Ob/Gyn Department at Morehouse School of Medicine and for Good Samaritan Health Center.  Read more about Dr. Lipman and the amazing services he provides on Classy Living Society’s official blog, the Chronicles Too!

Obesity is a disorder involving excessive body fat that increases the risk of health problems.  A few facts about obesity:

  1. More than 1/3 of adults in America are obese.
  2. Obesity affects 1 in 6 children in the United States.
  3. Obesity is linked to more than 60 diseases.
  4. Overweight children are more likely to become overweight adults.
  5. Your waist size increases your risk for diabetes.
  6. Obesity causes more deaths than being underweight.
  7. Obesity is costly; people with obesity pay over $1000 a year more in medical costs
  8. Ethnicity can affect your likelihood of obesity.
  9. Obesity is most common in middle age.
  10. Older women are more likely to be obese than men.
  11. Americans are eating more calories than ever before.

The health risks associated with obesity are many; they include an overall increased risk of death from all causes, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, osteoarthritis, and mental illness.

Because obesity is associated with such a wide range of health issues, understanding the numbers behind this trend is more important than ever.

Currently, about 36 percent of American adults are obese — more than 1 in 3. And, globally, more than 1 in 10 humans are obese.

*Medical News Today: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/319902.php

According to Everyday Health’s website, here’s what you can do to lose weight or avoid becoming overweight or obese:

  • Eat more fruit, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains.
  • Exercise, even moderately, for at least 30 minutes a day.
  • Cut down your consumption of fatty and sugary foods.
  • Use vegetable-based oils rather than animal-based fats.

So walk a little more, eat a little less — and do what you need to do to maintain a healthy weight.

During a meeting of legislators, a congressperson asked the question – “Who represents patients who are affected by obesity?” It was then that a legislator pointed out a serious need – a group whose only focus is on those affected by obesity. With this, the Obesity Action Coalition was formed in 2005 with the goal of building a national coalition of those who are living with and/or affected by obesity.

The OAC is a more than 58,000 member-strong 501(c)(3) National non-profit organization dedicated to giving a voice to the individual affected by the disease of obesity and helping individuals along their journey toward better health through education, advocacy and support. Their core focuses are to raise awareness and improve access to the prevention and treatment of obesity, provide evidence-based education on obesity and its treatments, fight to eliminate weight bias and discrimination, elevate the conversation of weight and its impact on health and offer a community of support for the individual affected.

For more information on OAC, visit their website at https://www.obesityaction.org
