We all know what today is, but this month is all about Heart Health. Thanks to the American Heart Association and CDC, we have a wealth of statistics that tell us how many American are already affected by heart disease. While many of the factors that put us at risk are pre-determined, the list of those we can control is worth some attention. At the top of that list? Diet & Exercise; Lifestyle choices, and behaviors.
For a quick “how-to” keep the ticker strong, these sites should do the trick:

Exercise? New meals on the menu? Stress relief, in whatever form that takes?
Let’s hear it – there’s not one single approach we all take to staying “healthy”, variety keeps it interesting and a little self-imposed challenge can go a long way!
