Happy Heart Health Month!

Happy Heart Health Month!

February is Canadian Heart Month, a time to raise awareness about heart disease and how to prevent it. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Canada, and a sedentary lifestyle is a major risk factor. Sitting for long periods of time has been linked to a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.

Valentine's Day is a time to show love and appreciation for our significant others, but it's also a reminder to take care of ourselves. One way to do this is by promoting office fitness and the use of standing desks.

Standing desks have been shown to have numerous health benefits, including reducing the risk of heart disease. They allow you to move around and stretch throughout the day, which can help improve circulation, burn calories, and reduce the risk of obesity.

Promoting office fitness and the use of standing desks is a simple way to show love and appreciation for yourself and your co-workers. Encourage your office to take a stand for heart health and wellness by setting up standing desks and promoting regular movement throughout the day.

In addition to standing desks, try to incorporate other healthy habits into your workday such as taking regular breaks to walk or stretch, drinking enough water, and bringing healthy snacks to work.

By taking small steps to promote office fitness and wellness, we can show love and appreciation for ourselves and our loved ones, and help reduce the risk of heart disease. Happy Valentine's Day and Canadian Heart Month!
