It is Heart Month – What Can You Do?

We love February, and not just because of Valentine’s Day. Rather, it is because February is heart month. We use February as an opportunity to commit to a heart healthy lifestyle and promote ways to make changes that can lead to a lifetime of heart health. As it is heart month, what are some ways you can make small changes that will make a big impact?

What is Heart Month?

Heart month was created to shed a light on heart disease and promote prevention. The fact is, heart disease is the leading cause of death in America, accounting for 1 in 4 deaths. Sadly, more than half of all Americans have at least one risk factor for heart disease. These factors include obesity, high blood pressure, unhealthy diets, and physical inactivity.

Changes You Can Make for Heart Month

This month is a great opportunity to commit to making changes that can make a big difference. And, while you are making changes, help spread awareness! Here are some small changes you can make, and encourage your friends and family to do the same.

How to Use this Information
Since it is heart month, we do encourage changes to prevent heart disease. And, we encourage you to promote awareness of this deadly disease and what people can do to prevent it. Have conversations with your friends and family. In fact, you can encourage them by doing changes with them. This can be as simple as taking walks with them or enjoying heart healthy meals together. Or, you can take some of our classes together!
