As women, you know that your busy schedule doesn’t always afford you time to focus on yourself. Whether it’s working long hours, taking care of the home, or caring for an aging loved one, the list of demands never seems to end. Set aside a few hours to attend Women’s Night Out, and you’ll be renewed, re-energized and refreshed to handle all that life brings your way.
The 6th annual Women’s Night Out will be Oct. 3. Starting at 4 p.m. at Mauston High School, you can enjoy a night of entertainment as you visit health and wellness exhibits, participate in interactive sessions and see what area vendors have to offer. You’ll also get to try scrumptious snacks and desserts, and receive free gift bags. You and your friends will also be able to win fabulous prizes. This dynamic event will enlighten, educate and encourage you to live life to its fullest, as you have fun with hundreds of other women from your community.
This year’s event is sure to be inspirational for all who attend. Everyone will enjoy hearing from Eliz Greene, this year’s keynote speaker. Her goal is to encourage all women to improve their heart health in order to work well, feel better and stress less.
“Balancing the demands of work and home leaves most women feeling worn out and stressed at the end of the day,” said Greene. “The constant pressure just to keep up, challenges our ability to maintain our health and sanity. At Women’s Night Out, we’ll laugh and explore ways to manage stress, set priorities and feel better.”
Greene draws from her experience of surviving a massive heart attack at the age of 35, while seven months pregnant with twins. Her life changed. Not only did she survive a 10-minute cardiac arrest, the cesarean delivery of her daughters and open-heart surgery (all in the same day), but she also gained new perspective and a renewed passion for life. Greene’s heart attack forced her to slow down and pay attention to what was important. She has since developed strategies to fit activity and healthy habits into her life, and she loves sharing her story with others.
Greene encourages everyone to attend this year’s event. “Women who maintain positive relationships with other women are 30 percent less likely to develop heart disease. Events such as Women’s Night Out are great ways to connect with wonderful women and do something good for your health.”
Greene is a published author, award-winning speaker and a national spokesperson for the American Heart Association. Check out her website, embraceyourheart.com, to learn more.
Tickets for this event are $10 each, and will be sold at six area locations, including Mile Bluff Medical Center and Phillips HealthMart in Mauston, and Elroy Family Medical Center.
