American Heart Month

February is American Heart Month.  According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the #1 killer of Americans.  They offer seven areas that we can improve to reduce our risk of heart disease:
  1. Get Active
  2. Control Cholesterol
  3. Eat Better
  4. Manage Blood Pressure
  5. Lose Weight
  6. Reduce Blood Sugar
  7. Stop Smoking
I think that everyone who is reading this is a non-smoker, so one down, six to go! :)   I'll be updating with more information in each area throughout the month.

For more information now, you can visit this link:
