This month’s PATH newsletter is dedicated to Women’s health. Despite the fact that women are more likely than men to seek help when their health is affected, many women today are sooooo busy that their daily health and fitness goals are often sacrificed to fit everything and everyone else in. For some golden tips and inspiration to help ‘get it together’ don’t miss Mel’s “Move it Baby” article, as well as Dr Nicola Gates’ “5 Simple Steps to Manage Menopause”. I feel particularly inspired after Nicola’s recent presentation at Golden Door. As a peri-menopausal woman myself, it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom, in fact I learnt that a healthy attitude in accepting and managing each menopausal symptom is key. So is self-care every day, just like cleaning your teeth.
On the women’s front, I’m also excited about our upcoming activities throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Golden Door supports a number of community-funded organisations to help raise important health messages and one in particular is the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). The NBCF raises funds for research that supports individuals and their loved ones living with breast cancer. This October 17-19 Golden Door will be hosting our first ever Pink Weekend featuring a healthy cooking master class with our Executive Chef David Hunter, a pink breakfast, special guest speakers and much more.
