Wow, this month just flew by! The good news is, we’re moving into one of the most romantic months of the year…traditionally known for chocolate, valentines and at least one romantic date.
Or, maybe not. :-)
For those of us not expecting to get a dozen roses or a big box of chocolate covered cherries this year (and even if we do), here’s something else we can get behind. The start of National Women’s Heart Health Month! Not as sexy maybe, but what could be more important than having a healthy heart? All the better to love someone with…
American Medical Women’s Association states that heart health can be greatly improved with awareness of heart disease risk and our willingness to reduce those risks. Like most things regarding healthy lifestyle change, the earlier you start, the greater the benefit. So, why not start today?
Lifestyle improvements each of us can follow include finding pleasurable physical activity that you enjoy and will continue to do regularly – because you love it . Efforts made toward reaching and then maintaining your own healthy weight, which features normal eating (while paying attention to low cholesterol, low saturated fat diet, eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables) and managing life stresses and positive thinking. Nothing, new there!
In honor of our hearts, this coming month we’ll try to focus some of our posts around tips, news, resources and best practices, in relationship to your heart health…and maybe even a little bit on romance, just for fun!
