B.A.F.F.L.E.D. Health


Wear Red for the Cure!



We hope you are wearing red today, as February 3rd is the day to commemorate the fight against heart disease.  February is Heart Health Month, and no better time to make sure yours is as healthy as possible. Heart disease is America's #1 cause of death, making heart health a seeeerious matter!

Anyone can suffer from a range of heart conditions. The heart is the core of the circulatory system and obviously a driving force in keeping us alive. As strong as the heart must be, it can be so easy to weaken it. 



Here are some great ways to protect your heart! 


-Regular visits to the doctor (yearly)
-Cardiovascular activities to keep the heart working at its best (walking, running, even jumping jacks in front of the TV if you must!) 
-Eating right. Apples, breads and pastas in moderation, and controlled amounts of red meat are important in keeping your heart healthy.

Check out these links to make sure you are up to speed and loving your heart as you should.
