NATIONAL WOMEN’S CHECKUP DAY

National Women’s Checkup Day on the second Monday in May each year focuses on the importance of regular routine visits for women.

As part of National Women’s Health Week, the observance provides ways to help women take steps to maintain better health. Routine health checkups provide an opportunity to catch problems before they become unmanageable. Speaking with your physician about risk factors, early signs and symptoms and concerns can help to alleviate minor daily issues and identify issues to watch. Additionally, your physician can recommend screenings and order baseline tests that can be used for comparison at a later time.

Yearly well-woman visits are important and should include discussions of your health habits and family history, setting health goals, and scheduling or receiving screenings or necessary exams. Screening would include blood pressure, cholesterol, cervical cancer, and others.

HOW TO OBSERVE #WomensCheckupDay

Schedule a checkup if you haven’t had one recently. Make a list of concerns before you go as well as any family history important to note. Include on your list questions to ask your physician, too. There are simple ways to improve your health, too. Ask your doctor what is best for your lifestyle.  Use #WomensCheckupDay to post on social media.

LOST SOCK MEMORIAL DAY

May 9th recognizes a fun and unique holiday, National Lost Sock Memorial Day. It is time to say “good-bye” to all of the single socks, the ones where their mates have been lost to the unknown. Where do all the missing socks go? Is there a washing machine heaven? This is a question people have been trying to solve for many centuries. An answer may never be found to this problem, and life will go on. How sad to have lost such a close-knit friend!

Of course, since before the dawn of Tupperware, inventors have attempted the prevention of such separation anxiety. Alas, if they had succeeded, mismatched socks wouldn’t be popular today. And, we there wouldn’t be pausing to remember them every May 9th.

HOW TO OBSERVE #LostSockMemorialDay

National Lost Sock Memorial Day reminds you that it’s time to move on. Let go of those lost socks. Clean out all of your left behind socks. Some ways to celebrate this unusual holiday include:

  • making sock puppets
  • turn them into dust rags
  • chose to never wear matched socks again
  • turn them into chew toys for pets 
  • make wrist warmers
  • make sock monkeys
  • fill them with beans and use them for your corn hole game
  • fill with rice and make a door stop
  • open up both ends of a long sock and make a plastic bag holder

To me, # 3 on the list makes the most sense.
