In the US, the leading cause of death is heart disease. People of all ages and backgrounds can suffer from this. I watched family members struggle with heart disease, so it is particularly important to me, not only to support the American Heart Association, but, also, to do what I can to keep myself and my family healthy. I do believe that education can be a wonderful tool for change. The more we understand about how to decrease our risks and eat well, the better our quality of life can become.
We try to stay heart healthy here by cutting down on fats and sodium, by not overeating, by doing cardio workouts and going for long walks. Not only does this help with our cardiovascular system, it also can increase our enjoyment of life.
There was a time that my Mom and I would take a daily walk around the neighborhood and down to the beach. Stopping to see the new flowers, the frog fountain she loved, being out and about, and having wonderful conversations are memories I cherish.
I still keep this routine and include yoga in the mornings to get my body, mind and spirit moving. We eat more veggies, fruits and lean meats. I’ve also added some really wonderful vegetarian meals to my repertoire.
