February is American Heart Month.The importance of heart health goes beyond exercising and eating healthy. For many years heart disease has been the leading cause of death in our country.
Keep your heart happy + healthy
Our hearts are written about in poems and songs, diagnosed and treated in the medical field, discussed in podcasts and reviews, and often depicted as the most incredible system of the human body. But with all of the information we know about the heart, heart disease still remains a leading cause of death, and more seriously for women. According to the CDC, there are 1 in 5 women who die from a form of heart disease every year.
We have been told that anxiety and stress are strongly related to heart health and by actively exercising, creating boundaries and treating ourselves with kindness we can change for the better. However, most of the time we need support from others too. We need help from our family, friends, pets, health care providers, and co-workers. And we need to invest and advocate for ourselves when we need this support.
