Where would you be without your girlfriends? On National Girlfriends Day, we take a moment to step back and appreciate these lifelong friends.
You can always depend on your girlfriends. Whether you call on them to share exciting news, to have a shoulder to cry on, or to just hang out, your girlfriends are always there for you. That’s why today is a day to celebrate these women—friends, sisters, mothers, and daughters. They are all essential parts of our lives!
There are many things that you can do with your girlfriends today to celebrate. Head to the beach, go to a wine tasting, or spend a day in the park. Whatever you decide to do, enjoy the time you spend with each other!
Being a girlfriend is a choice! Being healthy is a lifestyle
Girlfriends share a lot, from meals and clothes to laughter and the latest information. Be a healthy girlfriend, and help a girlfriend live a safer and healthier life. These tips will help you be the best you can be for yourself and your girlfriends.
Eat healthy at gatherings. Whether you’re at home or gathered for a book club, birthday celebration, or a girls’ night out, make healthy choices in what you eat and drink. Don’t drink and drive; be sure to designate a non-drinking driver.
Be active while having fun. Enjoy each other’s company while you walk, bike, bowl, swim, dance, play tennis, and more. Regular physical activity is important for good health, and it’s especially important if you’re trying to lose weight or to maintain a healthy weight. Adults should be active for at least 2½ hours a week.
Face the facts, manage stress, and be supportive. A friend in poor health, an abusive relationship, with mental illness, or who serves as a caregiver may lead a complicated life for a period of time. Maintain your own mental and physical health so that you can to be supportive of her and help find services she may need.
Be a great role model. Get exams and screenings, vaccinations, and other care you need. Get enough sleep. Keep safety in mind. Eat well. Be smoke-free. Take these steps to live a safer and healthier life and encourage her to do the same.
I would like to thank all of my girlfriends for being supportive of me. Many of you I have not met and only know through the Internet, but you are as important to me as someone I see face to face.
Sending love, light, and blessings,
