#OurHearts is an inspiring way for The Heart Truth® to encourage and motivate everyone to adopt heart-healthy behaviors, together. Research shows having social support and personal networks makes getting regular physical activity, eating healthy, losing weight, and quitting smoking easier.
Learn about heart disease and ways you can protect your heart — such as moving more, eating a healthy diet, quitting smoking, reducing stress, and sleeping better.
Studies show that having positive, close relationships benefits your heart health. Find #OurHearts resources to share with your community to help motivate each other to get heart healthy.
When we take care of #OurHearts as part of our self-care, we set an example for those around us to do the same. Watch this video and get inspired about ways you can work on your heart health with the support of friends and family.
This #HeartMonth, @TheHeartTruth is focusing on how self-care protects #OurHearts from heart disease. Small acts of self-care, like taking walks and getting quality sleep, help your heart. Share how you’re finding ways to show your heart some extra love!
Devoting some time every day to care for yourself can go a long way toward protecting your heart. Taking a moment to de-stress, preparing a healthier meal, and getting quality sleep, all help. Use #OurHearts to share how you're prioritizing your ❤️.
Self-care helps protect your heart health—and encouragement from others can help! Feeling connected helps your blood pressure, weight, and overall health. Even if it’s virtual, social support makes self-care for #OurHearts easier and more effective.
The bigger the heart the more #OurHearts activity in that community.
