I am always on the hunt for easy, fun ways to live healthier. I’m not the healthiest person I could be, but at least I’m making an effort.
One cool healthy event I discovered a few years ago was Speaking of Women’s Health. This nonprofit organization educates women through conferences, a Lifetime TV show, newsletters, books, and community outreach.
A few years ago, I went to a Speaking of Women’s Health one-day conference event in Cincinnati, and it was truly inspiring. I heard a variety of interesting, nationally recognized experts talking about how I could live healthier. I tried all kinds of fun samples, health assessments, and fitness activities. Best of all, I got lots of free stuff! The SOWH goodie bag is unrivaled in its quality and quantity: makeup and skin-care products, food samples, pens, books, magnets, t-shirts, and so on.
So you can imagine my disappointment in being denied access to the event two years in a row. Why is it so hard to get tickets?! I sent in my completed paper application and credit card information months in advance (you can’t order online), only to receive a rejection letter in the mail saying try again next year. I feel like I’m applying to a prestigious college or something, and SOWH is telling me they’re too good for the likes of me.
I’m still hoping I can snag some tickets before the big event–maybe from one of those scalpers with an “I Need Tickets” sign? Or there’s always eBay. See if there’s a SOWH conference near you. But good luck getting a ticket–you’ll need it!
