Did you know that the month of love is also National Heart Month?
The purpose of National Heart Month is to make people aware that the #1 cause of death in the U.S. is cardiovascular disease AND that this is an almost entirely preventable disease with a healthy lifestyle.
Let’s start reducing these statistics, by loving ourselves, family, and friends with the motivation and support to make healthier lifestyle changes together.
