February is National Heart Month

love-you-heart_mcsIt’s National Heart Month and your heart probably needs a little love! Just think of what it does…. beat after beat it works tirelessly to sustain us from the womb to our very last breath. It gives us so much and it asks only one thing of us in return: love. However too few of us truly love our hearts. We take for granted that it will serve us dutifully and we don't give it the kindness, care and adoration it deserves. Here are some steps to help you love your heart!

Empowerment: love yourself enough to want to take care of your heart.

Communicate effectively: get to know your heart by learning your risk and your family history.

Create date nights: treat your heart to fresh veggies, fruits, nuts, whole grains, fish and a glass of red wine.

Share fun activities: get your heart pumping with activities to build endurance, foster bonding and family time

Be vulnerable: listen to your heart and make seeking medical care for symptoms a priority.

Show commitment: prioritize your heart by monitoring blood pressure, cholesterol, weight and blood sugar.

Protect: keep your heart safe by avoiding tobacco.

Radiate positivity: train your mind to speak kindly to your heart, de-stress and express gratitude.

Demonstrate trust: believe in your heart's devotion to you.
