Wellness Reminders:

Keep your health in check

“I’m busy.” “I’m in great health.” “I’m afraid I’ll get bad news.” Have you used these excuses before to delay appointments or skip checkups? You’re not alone.

But getting regular checkups and exams can help you stay healthy and catch problems early ― when they’re easier to treat. They’re one of the smartest things you can do for your health. Plus, most health plans cover preventive care services 100% at no extra cost to you. Don’t have a regular primary care doctor? You can visit Anthem’s Find a Doctor feature to locate one near you. Your primary care doctor can help you stay up to date on all your preventive health tests and exams. Regular checkups and exams can save lives and give peace of mind. They’re that important. Check out this guide to learn more and see a list of recommended preventive health guidelines.

Finish Summer Strong

Take advantage of the season and plan activity—along with a new small wellness goal—to make your health and wellness an August priority! Here are a few ideas for wellness goals to get you started. https://theblissfulmind.com/2015/11/09/personal-goal-examples/

April Update

April 14th - Save the Date -  Join the LSHRM team for the Best Buddies walk @ the Brown Forman Amphitheater

The Best Buddies Friendship Walk is the number one walk in the country raising awareness and funds to support inclusion for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). When you walk with us, you can also expect to dance, laugh, smile and make a new friend. It will be one big party! But the best part? You’ll be growing your local Best Buddies programs dedicated to one-to-one friendships, leadership development, and integrated job opportunities for individuals with IDD. Every walk is the chance to show our communities how far we’ve come. It’s also the perfect way to celebrate the abilities and uniqueness within of us all.

Congratulations to Patricia Williams, Ludmilla Plenty & Tiffany Cardwell who helped LSHRM step up to the challenge and climbed 38 Flights – 780 Steps.

Our efforts are not yet done. We’ve raised $500 thus far, but we are still striving to reach our goal of raising $1,000. Every dollar counts so please consider donating what you can. We have until March 9th to reach our goal and we hope that all of you will consider participating in this very worthy event.

Until next year…
