It Was Just A Little Heart Attack

Last Friday, 2/3,  I stumbled upon a National Go Red Day event at Macy’s Herald Square. I  was glad that I got to participate because it made me realize how we often neglect taking care of ourselves because we are taking care of others.

Did you know that heart disease is silent, hidden and deadly?

It is the #1 killer of  women!

More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined!

Ladies learn your family history and change your bad habits before it’s too late!  Raise your awareness!

At the event, they featured the debut of this film short outlining the atypical warning signs of a heart attack in women such as neck, jaw, or arm pain, and fatigue and shortness of breath with activity.  The video paints a picture of symptoms in a light-hearted way, but it is definitely is not a light-hearted matter.

Check out the video and please share your thoughts.

Please pass along to any women that you know and care about!

Top 4 Questions You Need to Ask Yourself

It’s Super Bowl Sunday! What are you doing today? Are you going to take part in the festivities centered on camaraderie and the sport?

Before you do indulge for the day, take some time to reflect on the past week. Perhaps this is something you can do each Sunday. You’ll develop strong resilient muscles and will be able to go about the days in your week on purpose and be able to handle anything that comes up.  

Try not to be bound by worry and fear. This often paralyzes us from taking action on important things that we need to face. Avoiding things, people, circumstances, and events do not change what’s presently happening.

So in order to prepare yourself for the upcoming week ask yourself the following questions about the prior week:

  1. What went well?
  2. What could have gone better?
  3. What was within your control? What wasn’t?
  4. How can the coming week be even better?

Despite the challenges we face daily, weekly and over the long term, we must continue to work towards bringing our lives into a sense of balance and positivity. Our days go the way we choose to perceive them!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Oh by the way Go Big Blue!!
