Celebrate Your Heart During February

Celebrate Your HeartWe take meticulous care of the engine in our car, because a failure not to means replacing one of our most expensive possessions. Frequent oil changes, not revving too hard, and even letting it warm up in the cold winter before driving, all of this ensures the engine is well maintained. So why don't we give that kind of care to our body's engine, our heart? Unlike a car's engine, a heart is nearly irreplaceable, and far more costly if you do.

February is American Heart Month, a time for us to learn more about the number one killer in our country, cardiovascular disease, and make important changes to live longer, healthier lives. The leading killer of both men and women (more than breast cancer), in most cases it's almost completely preventable.

Treat your heart, and the rest of your body, like one of your most expensive possessions. Exercise, make smart food choices, and get regular check-ups to know your numbers, all to ensure your heart is well maintained.
