Want to Feel Your Heart-Throb?

Published Friday, February 25, 2011 4:59 PM

February brings more than cupids and Valentines; the month also ushers in heart-health awareness with the American Heart Month.

Do yourself a favor and spend as much time this month learning about a heart-healthy lifestyle as you do shopping for Valentine's treats for your loved ones. Taking care of your heart is the best gift you could give the people you love.

Did you know?

  • Heart disease is the number one killer in the U.S.
  • Women are particularly vulnerable because too many assume that heart attacks and disease are a male affliction.
  • One in three women will suffer a heart attack.
  • More than 42 million women are at risk of debilitating heart disease.

What Can You Do?

  • Reduce stress
  • Exercise
  • Eat a balanced, nutritious diet
  • Eliminate cigarettes and alcohol
  • Watch your cholesterol
  • Watch your weight

Heart-Healthy Resources

Go Red For Women, an education campaign sponsored by the American Heart Association. Provides heart-healthy information by age category, a heart healthy tool box and PSAs from a host of celebrities including beloved (and spirited!) octogenarian Betty White.

WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease A clearinghouse of information on living with heart disease. Provides advice on recognizing symptoms of heart attacks, how to monitor cholesterol, advice on finding support groups and more.
