February is National Heart Health Month
"Leading cause for death for Women"
The Heart Truth is heart disease and stroke is a leading cause of death for women in Canada, but most don't know it. Heart disease is not a "man's disease": women are more likely than men to die of a heart attack or stroke. The good news is that if women put their own health first by making lifestyle changes, they can reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke by as much as 80 percent.
February is heart health month to empower us nationally to End Stroke through education and awareness campaign that encourages us all to make smarter healthier choices, managing your fitness, and educating each other on the warning signs. It unites people to help make an impact on the high incidence of stroke within their communities.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation's The Heart Truth campaign calls on women to put their own health first by assessing their risk for heart disease and stroke, talking to their doctor, and making heart healthy lifestyle choices in order to enjoy a long and healthy life with their loved ones.
We encourage you to explore this site for the tools and resources you will need to help protect your heart health.

Having a busy summer? Here are some easy ways to squeeze in your workout in and have plenty of time to enjoy the sunny season!
High Intensity training can burn 47% more calories in a fraction of the time of traditional exercise.
JUMP ROPE for 10 minutes = 30 minutes of running
CIRCUIT TRAINING for 15 minutes = 90 minutes of leisure swimming
Perform 60 second each of the following exercises: push ups, plank (in hold position), bicep curls, squats, lunges with arm raises.
KICKBOXING for 15 minutes = 60 minutes of leisure swimming
Kickboxing uses the entire body during the workout and pumps blood to all extremities.

High bursts of training combined with low intensity fatigues muscles to the point they need to revoke and repair
MIND AND SPIRIT:
Earthing is a "barefoot technique" to curb stress! It is a sunny day and you are enjoying the sun, you slide your polished pedicure toes into the lush green grass and say "ahhhhh."
Instinctively, this is good for you, lifting your spirits in a therapy called Earthing. This therapy improves health& well being. It is based on the theory of the earth's connection to ourbodies "circadian " rhythm.
In good health,
