Here’s an important question: How is your heart?
How about that of your significant other? Your mom’s and your dad’s? Your best friend’s?
February is American Heart Month, and considering heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in the United States — causing one in four deaths each year — it’s a topic worth our attention.
Luckily, there’s plenty of great information available on heart health, including this episode of Total Health Radio: “How’s Your Heart? Understanding Your Risk.”
Looking for more information on how to show your heart some love? Check out this piece on Five Easy Steps for Taking Care of Your Heart. Or this infographic illustrating five ways to be both sweet and healthy on Valentine’s Day.
And finally, if you are looking for ways to promote heart health in your own workplace or organization, healthfinder.gov’s American Heart Month toolkit may be just what you need.
Let’s take care of our hearts — not just on Valentine’s Day, but all year long.
