nordic-walking-1369306_1280-1024x732From our friends at Move It Monday:

We’re so happy you’re keeping it moving for your health! Did you know that heart disease is the biggest health threat to women? That’s why we’re promoting American Heart Month all throughout February!

Friday, February 2, is Wear Red Day, a date chosen by the American Heart Association to come together and promote heart health in women. Women are especially at risk for heart disease, which tops the list as the biggest health threat to women. But even moderate physical activity every day can help prevent heart disease. This Monday, before breaking out a great red outfit, get your body moving and your heart beating!

Experts recommend getting 150 minutes of moderate physical activity every week to stay healthy. The same amount of activity is also an excellent way to prevent heart disease. Not only is it great for your cardiovascular system, but any form of exercise helps to ease stress, build your immune system, and benefit your overall health. Plus, people who start a new routine on Monday report being more likely to keep it up all week. Give yourself more reasons to celebrate on Wear Red Day this Friday. The best part is that pretty much any physical activity counts towards those 150 minutes! Read more here on our blog.
