Be Heart Healthy All Year
February is National Heart Health Month, with the days winding down, remember your heart health every day! When making the choice to begin Tae Kwon Do to strengthen your body, don’t forget that your heart is a muscle that will gain benefits from this cardiovascular activity as well.
When you begin the road to a healthy lifestyle and better heart health, keep these things in mind:
Try not to become overwhelmed. Every step brings you closer to a healthier heart, and every healthy choice makes a difference!
Partner up. The journey is more fun—and often more successful—when you have company. Ask friends and family to join you.
Don’t get discouraged. You may not be able to take all of the steps at one time. Get a good night’s sleep—also important for a healthy heart—and do what you can tomorrow.
Reward yourself. Find fun things to do to decrease your stress. Round up some colleagues for a lunchtime walk, join a singing group, or have a healthy dinner with your family or friends.
