- Explore topics and themes around women's health!
Women’s Health Week is a nation-wide campaign of events and online activities – all centred on improving women’s health and helping women make healthier choices. For women across Australia, it’s a reminder to set aside time for health and wellbeing; make an appointment for a health check, get active, join an event or simply connect with other women.
This year on Baha’i Blog we’re taking the week to explore topics and themes around the event, across all our channels. You can check back on this post throughout the week to find posts, images and videos in celebration of the week!
Here’s what we’ve shared so far:
- An inspiring article from Sonjel about the Lessons on Encouragement She Learned from At-Home Workout Videos
- Quotes about the effect of happiness on health, material and spiritual healing, and the equality of women and men.
- A beautiful animation from Baha’i artist Esther Maloney inspired by the words of Abdu’l-Baha about the coming feminine age
