February is Heart Health awareness month, which encourages people to be cognizant of the risk factors of cardiovascular disease. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, but it’s also the most preventable. Heart Health month pushes for people, families, and communities to make changes in their life that leads to a heart-healthy life.
What can you do to improve your health this month?
Be physically active.
Track your heart health stats.
Manage stress, sleep better, and quit smoking.
Make a difference during this month for your loved ones and your community by spreading the word about heart disease risk factors and by modeling a heart-healthy lifestyle. Encourage those around you to know their family history and have their hearts checked by a health professional. Together we can save lives not just in February, but all the time.
