How Is Your Heart?

February is American Heart Month- the perfect time to assess your risk for heart disease and learn the necessary steps to stay well. 

These are just a few of the important questions that we as women should be able to answer in terms of fully assessing our heart health.  For some reason, matters of the heart seem to find their way around our doorstep more often than we care to admit.  From heartache to heart disease, we as women tend to be more at risk.  Heart disease remains the leading cause of death among women and continues to challenge our health and wellbeing.

If you’ve ever experienced a broken heart, you know how damaging it can be.  The intense feelings and sadness seem so unbearable that you vow to protect your heart at all costs.  The same measures should be taken to protect our heart from physical damage.  Proverbs 4:23 states “above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it”.  Let’s start treating our hearts like our life depends on it; because it does.  There’s no time like the present to get heart smart!

Be well, Sis.
