slides: RI’s Go Red Day 2013: 10 Ways Women Can Keep Their Hearts Healthy

Friday, February 01, 2013

 

On the first Friday of each February, The American Heart Association (AHA) urges Americans to wear red to raise awareness about women’s heart health. Each year, women from all walks of life heed the call, donning red outfits and accessories, or sporting the AHA’s Go Red for Women pin.

Yet after Go Red Day, many women (including those in Rhode Island) once again forget to take action for heart health. This dangerous lack of awareness is behind a new initiative--Healthy Monday--urging Rhode Islanders to go beyond Go Red Day today and sport something red every Monday.

Why Monday? Evidence suggests that the start of the week may be the most effective day to reach people with health messages. A nationwide survey conducted by FGI Research found that most of us see Monday as the day for a fresh start: it’s when we’re most likely to quit smoking, start a diet or begin an exercise regimen. What’s more, recent investigations found that Google searches for health information consistently jump at the beginning of the week.

According to the AHA, nearly half of American women do not know that heart disease is their No. 1 killer, and less than half know the best blood pressure and cholesterol levels for cardiovascular health. Making red visible on Mondays could help sound the alarm and keep heart health ever present in the lives of American women. Below are the first 10 tips for Healthy Monday, in honor of Going Red for Women.
