In Matters of the Heart . . .

The heart is the center of our cardiovascular system and it also represents our emotional/spiritual essence.
Caring for our hearts is a two-fold task then. We should properly nourish, exercise, and rest our hearts and we should care for our emotional well-being through positive thoughts and actions including cultivating and nurturing loving relationships.
With Valentines Day and the Million Hearts Campaign going on, February is an ideal month to focus on Heart Health. I encourage all of you to think about ways you can improve your Heart Health every day.
