This is an open letter to all moms everywhere, whether by birth, adoption or inspiration.
With Mother’s Day upon us, we’re inundated with ads for products to show our appreciation. And certainly, you should have them all. You should be showered with flowers or chocolates or whatever makes you happy.
But we want to talk with you about something that we can’t really give you, but that is the most important gift of all. It’s something you have to do for yourself. It’s taking care of your health. And, it matters to us.
You do so much for everyone else. You spend so much time getting us to our appointments and making sure we have what we need that sometimes you may feel like you don’t have time for what you need. But if you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t be able to take care of everyone else.
Also, keep in mind we’re watching you. One of the best things you can do for us is to set a good example. When you take care of yourself, we’ll notice. And, we’ll be more likely to take care of our own health.
Of course, what really matters, is that we want you to feel your best. Eating well, exercising, taking care of routine appointments will help with that.
On Mother’s Day and every day, you deserve the best. Don’t feel guilty about taking the time that you need. And, if it helps you to get motivated, remember that we’re here cheering for you.
The ones who appreciate all that you do
At Ella Health, we treat all of our patients as if they were members of our own family. We want them to be able to relax and feel comfortable so they will want to take care of themselves.
