Equalizing Health Outcomes and Eliminating Health Disparities

Family Wellness Month 

 

May is Family Wellness Month. This is a very important topic, family wellness; it is something that impacts every single of us in the world. During this month take the time to help spread the word about the importance of this holiday. During Family Wellness Month it is also a good time to reevaluate your own medical wellness, as well as your family’s wellness.
 
Having your own health under control is of the utmost importance because the healthier you are as an individual the healthier the family as a whole will be. Wellness is something that we should all practice year round, do not just wait until May to take time to get healthy and think about life style changes to improve the overall wellness of our family. Visit your doctor for a checkup to make sure everything is fine with your health, have some blood work and a physical.
 
Each parent should start their children on a healthy start in life. Many parents let their children sit in front of the TV all hours of the day, when instead they should be outside playing, or playing inside. When your child is ill then you should take them to the doctor and just let them get as much rest as possible. When you start your child off on a healthy lifestyle chances are that they will continue those routines as they get older.
 
In May you should definitely take a look at your own personal health, but also your family as a whole. In each family it takes each individual being healthy, because if there is one unhealthy person, then they could bring down the whole family. If one person gets sick, then usually every person in that household gets some form of the bug, but if you keep everyone illness free then you don’t have to deal with that.
