Busy mums often put the needs of their families first and I would like to encourage all mums to look after themselves. At the beginning of the year I book in a health check to get all of those necessary annual check ups done. Book in time and have a check up and then treat yourself to coffee and cake. Being a healthy mum is the best thing you can do for your family.

  • Setting a date is a great idea, it is so easy to put things off.


  • True… I had a catastrophic health issue, and now wish we’d caught it earlier.


  • You’re right. We often forget that if we get sick then its much harder on our families.


  • A very good idea. I agree we do often forget to look after ourselves!


  • Great advice. It is very important that we look after ourselves. Thanks for the reminder


  • Yes, it’s easy to avoid doing this when everyone else’s needs are being attended to.


  • Yes you are right . I also think women suffer more mental health issues due to stress and extra responsibilities so thank you for reminding us .

    • I attended a conference and it was quite interesting as women do suffer from more anxiety than men. We all have a responsibility to look after each other, which includes metal health and checking that people are ok, if not, aiding them to get support.
