Feb 5: Wear Red Day

There are a lot of different “days” and “colors” for various organizations or causes. True Health Diagnostics supports National Wear Red Day, which is part of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign.

As a woman, I understand the scared feeling you may have when reading the statistics on women and heart disease.

Fact: Heart disease isn’t just a man’s disease. Did you know that 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke?

According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the#1 killer of women, and yet 80 percent of heart attacks and strokes can be prevented with simple lifestyle changes. It’s time for women to put this fear behind them, learn about what puts them at risk for heart disease, and take action toward fighting it.

Here are some heart-healthy habits to prevent heart disease in women:

  • Quit smoking & stay smoke free
  • Exercise regularly
  • Manage stress
  • Follow a healthful diet

We encourage making small changes and setting SMART goals for creating good habits that will maintain your heart health. SMART goals are:

Specific. Measurable. Attainable.Relevant, Time-bound.

Talk to your True Health Clinical Health Consultant to make your own SMART goals and get on the path toward better health!
