february is here, and you know what that means! it’s allllll about the heart - heart health, that is! did you know that february is National Heart Health Awareness Month? more than 44 million women in the U.S. alone are affected by cardiovascular diseases, which is why we’re teaming up with the American Heart Association to GO RED all month long, to help spread the word and raise awareness for heart health.
heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing one woman every 80 seconds – more than all cancers combined. the good news? lifestyle changes, such as cleaning up your diet and regular exercise, may prevent 80% of cardiac and stroke events. aside from lowering your blood pressure and kicking stress straight to the curb, physical activity helps you maintain a healthy weight, one of the biggest factors in avoiding heart disease.
