Heart to Health Challenge

heart to health

I just looked at the calendar and guess what?!  It is exactly 1 month until Valentine’s Day.  Since Valentine’s Day is all about hearts and chocolates, I can’t stop thinking about our real hearts.  I mean, our hearts tick for us EVERY SINGLE SECOND OF EVERY SINGLE DAY.  Did I emphasize that enough?!? Our hearts allow us to enjoy each moments with our loved ones.

In honor of your heart and mine, let’s kick off the next 30 days with a little challenge.  I love a good challenge, especially one that is good for me!  This challenge is not hard at all.  Anyone can do it. And it will get you to focus on that heart of yours.  It will bring awareness to just how important your heart is.

Did you know?

  • Heart disease is THE leading cause of death for both men and women (about 1 in every 4 deaths)
  • Every year, about 715,000 people have a heart attack

Ouch!  And most are preventable through an overall healthy lifestyle and/or changing bad habits like quitting smoking, reducing sodium/salt intake, etc.  So that is what the Heart to Health challenge I created is focusing on.  Over the next 30 days, create a specific goal for yourself.  Take a look at how you are going to achieve this goal and even break it down if you need to.  Focus on how happy and healthy your heart can and will be.

Invite others to do the same!  Share on your favorite social media platform with your goal!  Show your heart some love and then celebrate it on Valentine’s Day by cherishing each moment.

My personal goal for the next 30 days will be to practice 1 healthy habit daily to reduce stress.  I will be choosing from the following each day: 20 mins meditation/yoga/stretching, bubble bath, reading a magazine, going for a quick walk, or watching a girly show on TV.

From my heart to yours!

  • I found this post today (I confess – I stalked your blog a little after visiting from the Sunday Social link-up) and I think this is such a great idea! My husband and I blog together and I’m going to talk to him about doing this. I will link back to you if we decide to make the commitment. 🙂
