It’s no secret that February is all about hearts—but not just the candy kind or those found on cute Valentine’s Day cards. It’s also American Heart Month, a time that we turn our attention to keeping ourselves and our loved ones free from heart disease, the leading cause of death in America.
In honor of Heart Month, the theme of this month’s issue is heart-centered living. Managing the health of our heart involves not only caring for our body, but our mind and soul as well. Readers will find plenty of pertinent information regarding the myriad ways in which we can keep this vital organ operating at its best.
Our feature article, “Live a Heart-Heathy Lifestyle,” offers valuable advice from integrative cardiologists on how to prevent and reverse heart disease; our Healing Ways section explores how mindfulness and meditation can boost our health and well-being; our Fit Body section features the best exercises to lower blood pressure; our Inspiration section addresses learning how to inhabit our hearts and the benefits of doing so; and, finally, this month’s Conscious Eating section focuses on the best foods for a heart-healthy diet, and also includes some yummy recipes!
In addition to all this guidance on how best to care for our ticker, our February issue also contains a great article on eco-friendly weddings, a very helpful piece on how to get kids to eat more veggies, an adorable article on the joy of furry little companions, and an interview with Oprah-favorite psychologist and best-selling author Shefali Tsabary on consciously loving each other.
Enjoy reading and have a Happy Valentine’s Day—from my heart to yours!
