February is “Heart Month.” You’ll hear a lot of information on how crucial it is to stay heart healthy. Look for heart healthy programs in health organizations or hospitals your area. If you are in the Philadelphia area, check out Lankenau Hospital’s Heart Institute – Women’s Heart Initiative.
Heart disease is a serious issue especially for those over 40. Make February the month to take charge of your health by having a check-up, eating a diet with less meat and lots of fruit and veggies, drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day, and walking/exercising/meditating daily. A side benefit to doing these things for your heart is that your skin will be glowing as well.
The heart is also where we “feel” love. Valentine’s Day reminds us how important it is to “love and be loved.” Valentine’s Day gives us permission to openly express our LOVE. Love is the ultimate emotion and it truly does conquer all. Love eliminates all negative emotions from your spirit when you choose to genuinely feel and express it.
Romantic love is magical and amazing but expressing your love for family, friends and even pets can enrich your world. Most importantly take time alone to contemplate your blessings, treat yourself well and shed a bit of love on yourself . Treat yourself to a new outfit, haircut, massage or skin care routine. You’ll look great as well as feel great.
Giving to others can lift your spirits too. Consider giving a small gift of love to someone who may not have a special person in their life.
No matter your circumstances you can make 2017 into an amazing year by:
- Remembering the dreams that excite you
