Even though the end of February is near I still would like to take the time to appreciate the month for what it truly symbolizes. February is American Heart Month, allowing the human heart to symbolize love. Not only should we love others, but we should take the time to love ourselves. We need to remain “heart healthy” and encourage others around us to be as well.

Cardiovascular Disease including heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke are the #1 killer of most Americans. Despite genetics most of these diseases can be prevented through diet and exercise. It’s extremely important that you keep an eye on other conditions as well, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. All of which are huge risk factors for Cardiovascular Disease.

With patience, determination, and support from friends and family this process can be accomplished. What are you waiting for?! Go for the gold!!

Until next time!
