Cheerios calls for Canadians to think with their hearts
With over 2.4 million Canadians suffering from some form of heart disease, the month of February can offer a moment to reflect on heart health and how to implement new diet and fitness choices. For generations, Cheerios has been a household name as well as a breakfast and snacking staple for Canadians of all ages and lifestyles. Made with whole-grain oats and delivering essential vitamins and minerals, Cheerios has always been crafted with heart health in mind.
Tips for Your Ticker
Whether it is simply integrating heart healthy breakfast options into your morning routine or doing 30 minutes of physical activity daily, all it takes is one small change to start building healthy habits. Setting realistic and targeted goals is the best way to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
Here are four simple ways to incorporate some heart minded choices into your everyday routine.
Take a Walk on the Healthy Side
Going for daily walks to get fresh air and exercise helps keep your blood pumping throughout the winter months when it is difficult to find the motivation to get outdoors.
Eat Well, Live Well
Having a well-balanced diet with heart health in mind aids in preventing and managing high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Good quality sleep causes your blood pressure and heart rate to lower, putting less stress on your heart.
Learning to manage stress provides a sense of well-being and lets you take on every day with confidence in body, mind and spirit.
