February is National Heart Month!

Pay extra attention to your heart health this month.  According to the Center for Disease Control, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women.  Some things to do this month (if you haven't already) are:

  • Schedule a visit with you doctor specifically to talk about your hearts health.

  • Add exercise to your daily routine (after consulting with a doctor first, of course)

  • Eat out less; cook heart healthy meals at home

  • If you've been prescribed medication by your doctor, please take as prescribed

  • Quit Smoking

Here are a few links that will get you on the road to a healthy heart.
