February is American Heart Month

Did you know that February is American Heart Month?
Since Feb. 14 is valentine’s day I guess it kinda makes sense and…
dark chocolate is good for the heart after all!

But I also think this makes February the perfect excuse to get out and do some exercise. Okay, for you canuks, just walking to the bus stop in the middle of winter is probably enough work, but did you know that over 90% of women have more than one risk factor for developing heart disease? And if you want to talk about us guys… oh… scarry… very scary.

So no matter where you are, try to do a little more this month. Go out for a few extra walks, eat less red meat and more fish and chicken, get a massage or simply indulge in something that can give you a little relief from everyday stress – that indulgence doesn’t include eating red meat of course!

Every little bit counts towards a happier and healthier heart.
