During the month of May here at Violet we are celebrating self care for all the mom’s out there and honoring the achievements and contributions you continue to make to our world. It is no small thing to be a mom, but oh the impact it has on us all! What you do creates change, elevates love, and binds families together. We thank you!
Sometimes in all we do, we can lose site of our own selves. That’s why this month we are celebrating self care for mothers – we want to focus on self-care for YOU! We know that breast pain is no laughing matter, and dealing with monthly hormonal issues can put a big kink in our daily routines as moms. Violet is here to help.
Most of the time it is YOU who is giving the care to your children, your families and husbands, your work, and your community. Now is the time to step back and take a moment to think about how you can better care for yourself.
Violet exists to support women. Our mission is healthy breasts for life. That means we want you to be free from breast pain so that you can move confidently and pain-free into your life every day. The first step in self care is to be AWARE of your body, to notice the signals, and know what they mean. The second step is to have the tools available to address those issues, like Violet daily, an Iodine supplement that is built for women suffering with breast pain.
There is relief for breast pain in Violet’s unique formula of Iodine and Selenium. It comes in the form of a small pill you take daily. Violet is designed for women suffering from fibrocystic breast condition and/or the symptoms of menstrual-related breast discomfort – such as aches, heaviness, tenderness and swelling. Be sure to stop by our website at violetdaily.com and see how you can save 25% on your first order.
As busy women, it’s important to proactively take care of our breasts! Violet’s daily iodine supplement has been proven in *studies to eliminate breast pain within 30 to 60 days. That too is no small thing! It means you are conquering the obstacles in your life to help you be the best you can be.
Does self care mean you have to become a high maintenance gal? Book spa treatments and massages, get your nails and toes done and have weekly facials? Well, that all sounds good, but there is more to self care. We strongly believe that self-care begins with body awareness as mentioned above, but also it’s about not being afraid to touch yourself and understand what’s going on in and on your body. That sounds simple, but, in our busy lives most of us do not take the time for a good old fashioned self-breast examination. Now is the time. If you need a reminder and something to help you track your self-examinations, visit the Keep-Your-Breast Check Yourself program and download their convenient app.
Body awareness is always going to be the first step towards self-care and that’s not just for your breasts but for your whole body! Learning to listen to cues and recognizing changes and signs of distress in your body can very well keep you from harms way.
The next step from body awareness for self-care is to mind awareness. *Heart disease is the #1 killer of women, and stress is a major risk factor. Manage your stress levels and find healthy ways to lower it. It has never been more important in our history for women to find a place of peace and rest from daily stresses – what goes on in our minds will affect our bodies.
This month as we explore more ways for self-care, let’s start with a daily routine of becoming acutely aware of our minds, our bodies, and our spirits. Find that place (or those places) where you put away the devices and take a moment of self care to refresh your mind and to keenly sharpen your awareness of the very moment you are in. There’s nothing better for our bodies than that.
