February is the month of flowers, hearts, and love, right? Many people don’t know February is also National Heart Month! I’m not talking about the big chocolate hearts we eat from our loved ones; I’m referring to the blood-pumping organ inside your body keeping you alive.
The Heart Foundation just released the following heart disease statistics.
Those are some frightening statistics. What can we do to have a healthier heart? 1.) Manage your weight and diet. Instead of indulging in chocolate, grab some fruit and take a long romantic walk. 2.) Don’t smoke, smoking is the leading cause of premature heart attacks. 3.) Get active, getting plenty of exercise is one of the best things you can do for your heart.
The College Of Health Care Professions- Fort Worth Campus has taken the initiative to get heart healthy. On February 5, 2013 CHCP held the First Annual CHCP Heart Walk. Students and faculty will walk on every break to help promote a healthy lifestyle and in return a healthy heart. What will you do to ensure a healthy heart?
