February is Heart Health Awareness Month
Stay healthy and 'Go Red'
Go Red for Women is a campaign the American Heart Association has kicked off for the month of February to be designated as Heart Disease Awareness Month.
Heart disease - better known as cardiovascular disease - is the number one leading cause of death in woman. It has been proven that more women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined.
Just because you are young does not mean you can not be affected by this disease. Heart disease can develop at any age, so it is crucial that you make health-conscious decisions now that will benefit you in the long run.
Being young and on the go, busy with college, work, and balancing a social life can easily make it seem as if you do not have time to plan out healthy meals. It Seems easier most of the time to just grab something quick while your on the go like fast food.
The importance of living health is unfortunately easily overlooked. A healthy and active routine can be hard to stick to even when you make you best effort to eat well and exercise. It can be difficult to make sure you get your fruits and veggies between class or after work, but it is vitally important to start your healthy habits now, because the older you get the harder it to maintain your health. So try to spare at least half an hour a day to exercise and make the best effort possible to start a healthy diet - that includes your fruits and veggies.
It is also import to know your family history and know your health history such as blood pressure, blood cholesterol, weight issues, physical activity, exposure to tobacco smoke, if you have diabetes, and the use of birth control can all of which can increase your risk.
February 3rd is National Wear Red Day, so Go Red for Women and fight the number one killer of women!
