Happy Women’s History Month

Happy Women’s History Month! Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987. Women’s History Month 2023 takes place from Wednesday, March 1 – Friday, March 31, 2023. Fun fact, today is actually International Women’s Day! I’d like to dedicate this blog to the most impactful women in my life. I’d like to shout out and express my gratitude to my hard working mother, my loving sisters, and most importantly, my endearing grandmother– this one’s especially for you. 



Here are a few ways you can express your gratitude towards the women closest to you:

  1. Buy them flowers

As cliche as it may seem to some individuals, flowers will always make someone feel special. 

  1. Write them a personalized letter

A personalized letter is something that will never wither, it will be kept safe and will be cherished. Even a simple, “I appreciate you,” goes a long way. 

  1. Do an act of service

Something I’ve grown a habit of doing is warming up my moms car before she leaves to go somewhere, especially during these past cold months. It seems like a small gesture, but she is always very appreciative of it. 

  1. Give them a hug 

I am a huge hugger and when I feel like someone needs a hug, I ask to give them one. Hugs cause a decrease in the release of cortisol, a stress hormone, and other research indicates that hugs decrease your blood pressure and heart rate in stressful situations. Additional research has found that giving and receiving hugs can actually strengthen your immune system. 

  1. Tell them you love them 

Hearing ‘I love you’ is a big reinforcement that everyone needs to hear. Be sure to do this more often, the women around you need to hear it. 

I challenge you to hug at least 3 women in your life today. It could be your mom, aunt, sister, best friend, grandma, partner, anyone! I promise it’ll make their day 10x brighter.
