February is American Heart Awareness Month

Do you take care of your family? Goes without saying. Do you take care of your home? Of course. Do you take care of your heart? Probably not. It may not be at the top of most women’s to-do lists, but caring for your heart through a healthy diet and regular physical activity is the secret weapon to prevent heart disease. While many may assume that popping a few pills that your healthcare provider prescribed is enough to control symptoms or prevent a heart attack, the real preventative power lies with real changes to your lifestyle – which can reduce the risk for heart disease by as much as 80 percent.

Caring for your heart through a healthy diet and regular physical activity is the secret weapon to preventing heart disease.

  • Physical Activity
    When you exercise regularly, you reduce your risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease while increasing your chances of sleeping better and living longer. Plus, physical activity can help you manage your weight. If you haven’t been exercising at all, talk with your doctor about ways to start slow. Go for a walk with a friend or try a beginner exercise class. If you start slowly and keep going, you’ll reap health benefits and reduce your risk of injury or burnout.  Find ways to make exercise fun. Meet up with a friend, join a gym class, or find new places to explore. The possibilities are endless! What works for you?
