National Wear Red Day and American Heart Month
On February 3, the Resilience Home Health office administrative support team joined the nationwide effort to raise awareness about heart disease by wearing red on National Wear Red Day and helped to spread the word about preventative measures everyone can take to improve their heart health.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women. National Wear Red Day is part of American Heart Month and the American Heart Association’s signature women’s initiative, Go Red for Women. By increasing women’s awareness about the importance of heart health and taking care of your own heart, everyone can be part of making a difference in women’s lives everywhere. Additionally, learning how to do hands-only CPR can help save a life if you’re ever in a situation where someone collapses.
To fight heart disease and stroke, you can implement small changes to your daily routine that can have a big impact on your heart health:
- Add more movement to your day.
- Choose healthy nutritious foods.
- Manage your stress.
- Be aware of your blood pressure, cholesterol, weight, and blood sugar level and how they impact your risk of heart disease.
