Monday 6th September marks the start of #WomensHealthWeek , a nation-wide campaign by @JeanHailes that promotes the health and wellbeing of women and girls across Australia.

After the events of the past year, it is more important than ever that we take the time to look after our physical and mental health by moving, staying connected and allowing ourselves the time to unwind. Although this can prove more difficult with current lockdown restrictions, it is important to remember that there are plenty of ways to get a good (and fun) workout in your own home or at your local park. Even 30 seconds of star jumps can make a difference!

To kick off #WomensHealthWeek @JeanHailes have created “Move It Monday” a day dedicated to getting active and moving your body. Whether it be 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 30 minutes (or even 30 seconds!) any extra movement you can do goes a long way to boosting your physicality, your mind and your overall wellbeing. So, turn up the music, dance, sing, skip, or just wiggle the way through the day! Every little bit counts!

Every day this week we will celebrate a new element of women’s health and wellbeing, you can follow us on our instagram @sspc_physio to keep in touch with the daily activity!

As always, we at Southern Suburbs Physiotherapy Centre are here to assist you in any way we can to keep you as active and healthy as possible, especially during these difficult COVID times. So if you need help, guidance, advice or even just a little bit of motivation please do not hesitate to contact us on (03) 9570 8538.
