Valentine’s Day isn’t the only thing you should be focused on this February. Love month is also American Heart Month, which is the perfect time to re-center yourself regarding heart health. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, but luckily, there are many steps you can take to prevent it. Here at Progressions Salon Spa Store, we prioritize both your beauty and your overall well-being! We’re here to empower you with simple yet powerful tips to keep your heart happy and healthy.
Zzz’s for a Happy Heart
Skimping on sleep can disrupt your hormones, impacting blood pressure and inflammation, both of which are risk factors for heart disease. Take the time to adjust your nighttime routine to ensure the best sleep possible! Whether that means making the viral sleepy girl mocktail or spraying magnesium on the bottom of your feet, aim for 7-8 hours nightly to keep your heart rhythm healthy! Hot tip: charge your phone across the room instead of bedside to resist the temptation of browsing instead of snoozing.
Move Your Body, Love Your Heart:
Embrace the love of movement! Even small changes like taking the stairs, parking further away, or dancing in your kitchen can make a big difference. Regular physical activity strengthens your heart muscle, improves blood flow, and keeps your weight in check – all contributing to a healthier, happier you.
Fuel Your Heart with Love (and Lean Protein):
Shower your heart with love in the form of delicious, lean protein choices like fish, chicken, beans, and lentils. These protein powerhouses are packed with nutrients that help build and repair tissues, regulate blood sugar, and keep you feeling satisfied, preventing unhealthy snacking that can harm your heart health. Choose foods that love you back!
