February is National Heart Month and it is a time to raise awareness about heart disease. In case you didn’t know, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. This is a very scary statistic and I think it would be difficult to find someone who has not been affected by heart disease, either directly or indirectly. The good news is that you can change many of the factors associated with the development of this deadly disease.
What can you do to prevent this heart disease?
- Schedule regular checkups with your primary doctor to check your blood pressure and cholesterol.
- Eat a heart healthy diet.
- Exercise regularly. Aim for at least 30 minutes a day.
- If you smoke, quit.
- Reduce stress.
- Maintain a healthy weight.
To honor National Heart Month some of my fitness blogger buddies and I decided to host a giveaway for a Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker. I love my Fitbit Charge because it helps me to stay motivated to move every single day. I try to get in at least 10,000 steps a day if not more. This is a great tool to get someone motivated to get in the activity necessary to help prevent heart disease. Be sure to enter via the rafflecopter form below.
