Did you know that National Women’s Health Week is coming up, May 8-14 – or is this the first time you’ve heard of it? For many of you, it will be the first time, and that’s why this post was so important to write! As women, moms, daughters, sisters, etc, we tend to put other people first in our lives and while being selfless and generous with our time and energy is a wonderful thing, it can often mean that our own basic needs are put last… even our health. When it comes to making doctor’s and dentist’s appointments, our children never miss a routine exam, and we rush to the doctor’s or dentist’s office immediately when they aren’t feeling well, yet we often stall in making appointments for ourselves because of our busy schedules. This needs to end! That is what National Women’s Health Week is all about – ensuring that women take proper care of their health.
A happy, healthy woman is much more productive and helpful to others when she’s feeling her best, and there are so many simple things we can change in our daily lives that will help to improve our overall health!
In honor of National Women’s Health Week, Colgate Total® is inviting women across the country to pledge to Refresh, Restore and Repair our health, and it all starts with a simple switch to the Colgate Total® Daily Repair regimen. You can join Colgate Total® in celebrating women’s health by sharing a healthy selfie on social media using the #MyColgateSelfie hashtag. Your healthy selfie can be anything you like that helps to improve your overall health.
Here are a few ideas if you’re having trouble getting creative with your selfie!
- Enjoying a nutritious snack or meal
- A gym selfie or yoga pose
- Taking a walk or spending time outside in the fresh air and sunshine
- Using the Colgate Total® Daily Repair regimen
This is the #MyColgateSelfie I am sharing on social media to promote awareness, what do you think? It incorporates two of my favorite things: swimming in the ocean, which is a fantastic full-body workout, and soaking up a little sunshine…aka Vitamin D.
You’ll notice that I included using the Colgate Total® Daily Repair regimen as a way to show your healthy selfie – that’s because following this regimen can help provide a range of oral health benefits.
The Colgate Total® Daily Repair regimen includes Colgate Total® Daily Repair Toothpaste and Colgate Total® Daily Repair Mouthwash, which is a new product that helps kill bad breath germs (for me, it helps combat my coffee breath!), while helping to repair daily damage to your teeth. The Colgate Total® Daily Repair Toothpaste also helps repair early teeth and gum damage, freshen your breath and whiten your teeth too!
