When it comes to making health a priority busy moms often forget about themselves. We are programmed as caregivers and tend to put our husbands and children ahead of our needs. Packing a gluten-free sandwich, apple and carrot sticks into our child’s lunch is fantastic, but what did Mom have for lunch? A typical busy mom will eat a grab and go snack or finish their child’s breakfast for lunch. Is that really healthy? How about exercise? Did you get out and go for a walk, run or lift weights today? Our lives are crazy and taking care of our health first can get pushed aside when we are busy taking care of others.
During Breast Cancer Awareness month this October, we have teamed up with BabbleBoxx to let women know that October is the perfect time to discuss women’s health issues including stress management tips and skin care. The products discussed below will help encourage women to take care of themselves first.
Too much stress on our bodies can cause much worse health conditions. It can lead to insomnia, obesity, and depression to name a few. Deep breathing exercises are proven to help reduce stress. Studies have shown that slow, deep and consistent breathing can lower blood pressure, reduce stress and increase the flow of endorphins in the blood stream.
The creators of Spire worked with leading experts on the respiratory system and digital health and medical/wellness devices to create the only wearable that increases mindfulness and productivity by tracking our state of mind. This simple little device can be clipped to your bra and stay hidden. The wearer connects it to their smart phone with an app to track breathing patterns. The Spire platform will learn to anticipate stressful events before they are likely to happen and alert the user with actionable insights on how to prepare an experience more calm in their life. Healthy Moms Magazine readers can get $10 off their purchase of Spire. Visit this link to learn more.
As women age their hair can also start to thin. I am glad that I am still young enough to have a healthy head of hair, but some women are not as lucky.

Aging also takes its toll on our skin. As I am nearing 40 I have noticed more and more fine lines on my forehead, by my eyes and around my mouth.
