Did you know that September is Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Month? Don’t worry if you didn’t. I didn’t know this either. But turns out it’s a great time to raise our awareness about heart health whether or not we know someone directly affected by heart disease. After all, Atrial Fibrillation is responsible for 1 in 4 deaths every year. And, as usual, prevention is the best remedy for heart health.
Want more information? Check out this helpful infographic below. Then join me in making healthy-minded decisions (such as deciding to eat less fried food and take more walks) that will benefit our hearts (and all of our body parts).
Help spread the word by using this hashtag throughout this month and even during future months: #RhythmicResolutions. The heart you save may be your own! (P.S. Sending a special shout out and thank you to Judy C. who wrote to me about this important issue!)
