Pass the Pink Penguin!

I've been tagged by Crystal to pass on The Pink Penguin in conjunction with the ‘Breast Cancer Awareness’ month of October. In doing my bit to help spread awareness on the issue of breast cancer to women, here are several tips I'd like to share with you on how you can avoid breast cancer and remain healthy.

• Maintain a positive mental attitude
• Do aerobic exercise 3-4 times a week
• Practise breathwork and deepening body-awareness such as yoga
• Express your feelings to keep your energy flowing
• Ensure healthy eating habits and complement your food intake with the right supplements
• Avoid toxicity

I'd like to pass this Pink Penguin to the following friends that I believe feel strongly enough about this issue to help spread the word.


How you can help raise awareness on breast cancer:-

1. Spread the word. Announce the event on your blog. You could write a blog post (like this), or a little note about it. Whatever you choose to do, just go ahead and tell your readers about it.

2. Go pink. Modify your theme if you know how to, or get yourself a pretty pink theme. If you run a website, turn your website pink. But if you don’t like pink, you could still participate by putting up a badge on your sidebar.

3. Design badges and banners. Design a couple of “Pink for October” badges or banners for other participants to use (for free) and to publicize the event. Some of the existing badges and banners can be downloaded from the Official Pink for October Site.

4. Design blog themes. There are a lot of bloggers (me included) who can’t even do simple designing, so if you are good at it, perhaps you could design and release a few pink themes? So, I am hoping that whoever happens to read my post, please do something to spread the awareness. It only takes a moment of our time.

Thank you!

Thanks so much, Marzie...this is indeed a really important issue.I shall post it up just after the award post I am going to do...or perhaps even before the award post...this is a great way to remind women all over about how important a mammogram can be!
Take care...and I trust that you are keeping the 2nd award in a very safe place ( for me)

Yes Marzie. The truth is, Breast cancer is no laughing matter. I just made a joke because all these posts about death and having to go to a funeral and all. Not much happiness here:(

I'd love to participate in the fight against this dreadful disease that inflicts so many women:)

Have a great day my dear!!!!
