Have a seat, put your feet up…..your heart will thank you

February is all about hearts. There’s Valentine’s Day on the 14tn and it’s also heart awareness month.

Keep your heart healthy by monitoring your diet, tobacco use, blood pressure, physical activity, weight, cholesterol and diabetes. If your heart cannot pump enough blood to the rest of your body, your heart will fail. Symptoms of heart failure include shortness of breath, fatigue, frequent urination, sudden weight gain and swelling in ankles or feet. One way to relieve the swelling is by wearing compression stockings and elevating your feet. So sit back, relax and put your feet up.  Take care of your heart…. You only have one!!image
