Heart Health is so important. Women and men both need to think about taking care of their hearts. Exercising, healthy diet, and check ups with your doctor can prevent heart attacks. My father is really healthy and the last time he went to the doctor he was told to start taking an aspirin every day. I hope that he follows his doctor’s advice. Bayer is one of the participating sponsors in the Beautify your heart campaign.
February 6th was the big wear red day in honor of heart health. I forgot to wear red. My husband came home that day and asked me if I wore red, I didn’t. He didn’t either he was just reminding me. Taking care of children and not leaving the house makes me forget what day it is. I can’t believe February is almost over can you?
Cholesterol screening is very important as well. Which leads to a healthier heart. My husband had high cholesterol as a child so we watch cholesterol in my family. He no longer has high cholesterol except maybe around Christmas but we did not have any egg nog like we usually do. We both love it (not good for your heart though, or your waist). I was recently tested because I carried two children back to back and they want to make sure you are healthy enough to do that. I watch what a serve for dinner. My kids eat tons of cheerios. They don’t get a lot of sweet stuff or fatty food so I think we are on the right track for staying healthy.
Metamucil is another sponsor for the Beautify Your Heart. They have formed an on-line community where people can seek support and more information about how to take care of your heart. They are also offering free samples for you to try of their new flavors. I still found it to be a little gritty, but I’m not entirely sure I stirred it well enough. I just wanted to drink it. I did enjoy the taste. I have tried the pink lemonade, I still have the berry burst sample to try.
I’m really proud to be a part of the Family Review Network and getting to know about wonderful campaigns like the Beautify Your Heart Campaign. Taking care of ourselves and our families is invaluable. You can’t put a price tag on how precious life is. Early screening, for your heart and cholesterol is a must.
