As February dawns upon us, so does National Heart Month – a dedicated time to raise awareness about cardiovascular health and encourage individuals to take proactive steps towards a healthier heart. In 2024, the significance of this month has only grown, considering the escalating prevalence of heart-related issues worldwide.
Cardiovascular health is a concern to many of our clients at Arosa, which is why this National Heart Month, we’re encouraging folks to embark on a journey of self-care and awareness. Cardiovascular diseases remain a leading cause of global mortality, making it imperative to prioritize heart health. The emphasis this year is not just on identifying risk factors but also on preventive measures and lifestyle changes that can lead to a stronger and healthier heart.
National Heart Month serves as a reminder to pause, reflect, and adopt heart-friendly habits. Simple changes can significantly contribute to a healthier heart:
- Maintaining a balanced diet
- Regular exercise
- Stress management
Communities and healthcare organizations worldwide are coming together to organize events, webinars, and health screenings throughout the month. These initiatives aim to educate individuals about the importance of heart health, offering valuable insights into prevention, early detection, and management of cardiovascular diseases. The American Heart Association has a wide variety of informative videos on their website. Click here to check them out.
National Heart Month this year is a focus for Arosa as we keep our Caregivers and clients updated about the latest developments and treatments in heart health.
