Have you or someone you know and love been affected by heart disease, heart attacks, or other heart related problem. I bet you have because heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. My grandma and grandpa have both had heart attacks and it is very scary!
Well, February is American Heart Month and it is such a great cause to be aware of because heart disease is preventable and controllable!
And if you are a woman, this month you should be supportive and aware of the Go Red for Women initiative! To dispel the myths and raise awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women, the American Heart Association created Go Red For Women, a passionate, emotional, social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health.
Go Red For Women encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease, and also action to save more lives. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. It challenges them to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk. It also gives them the tools they need to lead a heart healthy life.
Go Red For Women's mission is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. That single purpose drives all that they do.
In order to show your support this month for the American Heart Association and Go Red For Women movement, make sure to check out and wear their super cute clothing, bags, and fitness items to show your support!
I REALLY love this Heart and Torch Furry Fleece Ladies Jacket. It is SO SOFT and comfortable and my children just want to snuggle me when I wear it! Plus, I am proud every time I wear to show my support for the AHA!
I also love the American Heart Association Step-in-Tune Pedometer. It helps me be aware of how many steps I am getting everyday and keeps me keeping my heart healthy with exercise!
As an athletic trainer, I really know the importance of proper exercise, diet and nutrition to keep your heart healthy, especially for us women! Make sure to become knowledgeable about your heart health, especially this February, American Heart Month!
