The wonderful people at Tieks reminded me that February is American Heart Month. I know I've heard that heart disease is the number one killer of women in the past (more so than all cancers combined) but I feel like I've never really considered looking into how to prevent heart disease (which I should because not only have I lost loved ones to heart disease, but this means it also runs in my family). If you're curious if you're at risk, the American Heart Association has posted the risk list here. You can find tips to prevent heart disease here and for the list checkers, there is a prevention list here.
Last thing- Not sure if you knew this, but Feb 7 is "Wear Red Day" to help spread the word on this silent killer. I will definitely be wearing my Cardinal Red Tieks to support & I'm not trying to push you to do anything you don't want to, but feel free to rock your red if you feel so inclined ;)
