What we hope for.
We know that self-care nourishes, restores, and strengthens your health and well-being; mind, body and spirit. It provides us with quality of life. But we also know that life’s challenges and experiences leave us with obstacles - very real challenges that can be difficult to overcome in order to feel better.
CanPrev Women exists to inspire and ignite real conversations about your health so that at all of life’s stages and ages, you can feel good about yourselves, your health, and your journey.
Developing a self care plan.
We decided the best way to inspire more conversations surrounding self-care is to actually have one. So that’s what we did - we had one big open conversation! We hope it inspires you to start your own conversations.
Below you will meet the incredible women we asked to join us for this day of talking about self-care and related topics. To start, we asked each woman to fill out a short questionnaire relating to their current self-care routine as well as thoughts surrounding their mental, physical, and emotional health.
