February is American Heart Month. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Exercising and making healthy choices are just two simple things you can do to prevent such a fate. Nature Bridges wants to encourage everyone to get up, get out, and go outside!
Want to start engaging in a healthier way of life? Here are some steps you can take to jump start your new lifestyle.
1. Call your friends!
Grab a group, pick a time and place, and enjoy a fun walk. Aerobic exercise helps your heart become more efficient, reduces your risk of a heart attack, lowers bad cholesterol, and even elevates your mood. Here are some of our favorite trails:
2. Make the switch!
Choose spices and oils to flavor food instead of salt and butter. Cutting out excess fat and sodium in your diet will give you the energy you need for your afternoon exercise.
3. Spread the word!
Encourage friends and family to begin the healthy lifestyle challenge with you. Take action and hold each other accountable. Help your heart and get outside today!
