In the United States, heart disease is the #1 cause of death, while stroke is the #4 cause. This includes both men and women, young and old, no matter your ethnicity. These are scary numbers, but I have great news! Not only is death from heart disease 80% preventable, but there’s a big way you can help encourage others in Palm Beach County to live a healthier life and support medical research and education at the same time- join the Heart Walk!

On November 17th, 2018, The American Heart Association Heart Walk will take place at Meyer Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, and your friends at Waterfront Properties & Club Communities would like to invite you to join in on the fun for a cause!

Leading up to the Palm Beach County Heart Walk, participate in the #30daysofheart challenge! Each week leading up until November 17th, we'll be bringing you a weekly plan of healthy lifestyle changes on behalf of the American Heart Association. Hopefully this will inspire you to live a longer, healthier life!

If you need to catch up, view Week 1 first! Here is your daily plan for week two!

Day 8- Say no to sugary drinks. Most Americans consume almost 20 teaspoons of added sugars each day; triple the recommended daily limit for women, and double for me. Sugary drinks are the top source of added sugars, so give up that sweet drink- including “fruit-flavored” drinks- and say yes to a healthier heart!

Day 9- Keep it positive. Today, force yourself to smile- even when you don’t feel like it. Take deep breaths when your blood pressure starts rising. Step away from frustrations and exhale. Negative self-talk creates stress, which can weaken the heart. A simple shift in perspective can make all the difference. SMILE!

Day 10- Try a new fruit or veggie. There may be something you have never tasted before – or haven’t had in years- that could wake up your taste buds to new favorite snack!

Day 11- Take a 15-minute walk. Busy day at work? Walk around the building, or have a walking meeting. Going to the store? Park a little further, then keep moving for 15 minutes before browsing. You’ll feel great afterwards!

Day 12- Call a time out. At some point today, you may get frustrated, stressed, or anxious. When your heart rate rises, call a time out! Count backwards from 10, take a few deep breaths, go on a walk, call a friend, listen to music, or mediate for a few minutes to collect your thoughts.

Day 13- Go vegetarian for a day. Did you know cholesterol is only found in animal bybroducts, including eggs and dairy? It’s possible to stay nourished while limiting or eliminating meat. Check out the produce section, and stick to whole grains, beans, fruit, veggies, and leafy greens for a nutritious knock-out!

Day 14- Rest, reflect, and share with someone you love. Share this article, and go to our team page to donate for the cause!
