HAPPENINGS

February is American Heart Month

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the US. Your heart is a muscle and it needs exercise to keep it healthy! The American Heart Association  recommends that people under the age of 20 years get at least 6 0 minutes of moderate to vigorous aerobic activity every day. Anything that gets you and your kids moving that you enjoy is the perfect way to exercise your heart. Stay "heart healthy" with the whole family by following all of the Simple 7 Aspects of Heart Health:
    1. Avoid smoke and tobacco products
    2. Be physically active every day
    3. Eat a heart-healthy diet
    4. Keep a healthy weight
    5. Keep your blood pressure healthy
    6. Keep your total cholesterol healthy
    7. Keep your blood sugar healthy
