Why Every Cyster Should Honor Herself on Labor Day


In honor of Labor Day, citizens of the U.S.A. observe a national holiday. Quite simply, Labor Day honors the contributions of laborers. We are all laborers, whether in business, the home or in conducting our lives and caring for our PCOS. I propose that today, we honor our PCOS-related labors.

To that end, I’m giving myself a little holiday break and writing a very short post for today. Great things to do to honor the hard work you do the other 364 days a year include:


  • Continuing to eat well today, however you define that so that your body doesn’t get thrown off-track by over-indulgence in food treats that aren’t really all that awesome for you.


  • Getting an extra hour or two of sleep – even better, a lazy afternoon nap!


  • Engaging in vigorous physical exercise outdoors, preferably in a beautiful natural setting. Take a hike, play beach volleyball, or hit the tennis court.


  • Spending time with friends and family, and engaging in a massive gratitude exercise for all that you DO have.


Happy Labor Day! See you next week.
