Celebrating Women's Mental Health Month with Actionable Wellness Strategies

By Melissa Brown | Health Science Solutions Practice Lead

Working on the Health Science Team at Logisolve I have been fortunate to work on meaningful and rewarding e-health delivery projects that make a positive impact on the daily lives of patients dealing with chronic and acute illnesses.  Because of this, I am frequently reminded of the importance of making my own health and wellness a priority. Unfortunately, for many women, balancing work, family life, and taking care of aging parents, personal health and wellness ends up taking a backseat to the urgent demands of our daily lives.

In today’s fast-paced world, women face unique challenges that can significantly impact their mental health. The American Psychological Association (APA) reports that women are more likely to experience anxiety and depression than men, yet many do not seek treatment. For instance, only about half of women with mental health conditions receive treatment.

The struggle to balance work and family responsibilities often leaves little room for self-care. A survey by the Pew Research Center indicated that 40% of working mothers feel that they do not spend enough time on self-care due to these demands.

Sleep, an essential component of health and well-being, is another casualty of the stress and multitasking that women often endure. The National Sleep Foundation reports that nearly one-third of women suffer from insomnia or other sleep disorders, frequently stemming from stress and the juggling act between work and home life.

Moreover, the role of caregiver, often assumed by women, can further exacerbate the neglect of their own health needs. A survey by the AARP Public Policy Institute found that female caregivers reported not having time to take care of their own health, resulting in women neglecting preventive care and screenings.

These statistics highlight the pressing need for greater awareness, support, and resources to address the mental and physical health challenges women face every day.

Because May is Women’s Health Month, we must take the time to prioritize our own well-being and learn how we can support others on a path to wellness. By taking a proactive approach to health and wellness, women can enjoy several benefits that enhance their quality of life, improve their relationships, boost their careers, and contribute to a healthier society.  As we observe Women’s Health Month at Logisolve, here are some of the key benefits to making health and wellness a priority in our own lives and the women we care about.

Physical Health Benefits

  • Disease Prevention: Regular check-ups, screenings, and healthy lifestyle choices can prevent or detect early diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
  • Improved Fitness: Regular exercise enhances cardiovascular health, strengthens muscles and bones, and improves overall fitness and energy levels.
  • Weight Management: A balanced diet and regular physical activity help maintain a healthy weight, reducing the risk of obesity-related conditions.
  • Enhanced Immune Function: Good nutrition, regular exercise, and adequate sleep boost the immune system, making it easier to fight off infections.

Mental Health Benefits

  • Reduced Stress and Anxiety: Practices like mindfulness, meditation, and regular physical activity reduce stress and anxiety levels, promoting mental clarity and emotional stability.
  • Improved Mood: Physical activity releases endorphins, which can improve mood and act as natural antidepressants.
  • Better Sleep: Good health habits, such as regular exercise and a balanced diet, contribute to better sleep quality and duration.
  • Enhanced Cognitive Function: A healthy lifestyle supports brain health, improving memory, focus, and cognitive function.

Emotional and Social Benefits

  • Increased Self-Esteem: Taking proactive steps towards health can boost self-esteem, body image and reduce anxiety.
  • Stronger Relationships: Better health and well-being can lead to more positive interactions and stronger relationships with co-workers, family and friends.
  • Greater Life Satisfaction: Overall well-being and the ability to enjoy life activities contribute to greater life satisfaction and happiness.

Professional Benefits

  • Increased Productivity: Good health leads to higher energy levels, better focus, and improved efficiency at work.
  • Reduced Absenteeism: Healthy employees are less likely to take sick days, leading to more consistent attendance and productivity.
  • Career Growth: Enhanced mental clarity, energy, and productivity can positively impact career growth and opportunities for advancement.

Long-Term Health Benefits

  • Longevity: A proactive approach to health and wellness can increase life expectancy by preventing chronic diseases and promoting overall well-being.
  • Aging Well: Healthy habits contribute to better physical and mental health as one ages, reducing the risk of age-related diseases and maintaining independence longer.

Financial Benefits

  • Lower Healthcare Costs: Preventive care and healthy living reduce the need for expensive medical treatments and hospitalizations.
  • Financial Stability: Better health can lead to fewer medical expenses and more consistent work attendance, contributing to financial stability.

Community and Societal Benefits

  • Role Modeling: Women who prioritize their health can inspire their friends and family to do the same. We model our kid’s behaviors
  • Reduced Healthcare Burden: Healthier individuals contribute to reduced strain on the healthcare system, benefiting society.
