Celebrate Your Heart Health in February

Love is in the air! Not just for Valentine’s Day, but more importantly, the self-love of taking care of your heart by making choices that support your good health and well-being. Being heart healthy does not happen by coincidence–it is a result of intentional commitment to living well. What you put into your mouth, whether you engage in routine physical activity, and how you quiet your mind all contribute to your heart health. Generally speaking, if your lifestyle supports a healthy heart, then your overall health will be optimized.

There is a lot of information available about the benefits of eating healthfully, staying physically active, and taking a few moments each day in reflection and relaxation; the “how to’s” in terms of incorporating those healthy behaviors into your life–now that’s another topic entirely! It is definitely possible to integrate small-step daily changes that will lead to optimal health. The research shows that a systematic approach to behavior change will bring successful goal attainment. It’s not just about willpower!

The American Heart Association celebrates February as  American Heart Month. The AHA website is filled with information about the incidence of heart disease, risk factors modification, and much more. It’s a fantastic resource.

How are you going to celebrate your heart health?

“When I began to work with Robin as a client, she immediately recognized that my success involved more than treating issues relating to my heart. Her knowledge and caring has given me the opportunity and confidence to improve my overall health and mental outlook for the future. I have received excellent care from many doctors but what may be more important is that Robin has made me want to do more for myself.
