It's A Movement for Movement!
Today is Movement for Movement Monday at Aortic Hope.
Let's make this message simple.....IT'S TIME TO MOVE!!!
To all of those with a newer diagnosis or survivors of surgery.....whatever your doctor has cleared you to do....IT'S TIME TO DO IT!
🍁It's that time of year when the leaves are starting to fall. In the Cleveland Clinic article "How Fall Yard Work Can Cause Heart Problems", Nicholas Ruthmann, M.D. says that "It may be a simple task, but raking leaves is one of the autumn chores that can have the biggest impact on your heart. In fact, it’s considered to be aerobic exercise because of all the twisting and bending involved."
🍂Yardwork in general can be deceptively challenging so it's important to do it slowly, pace yourself, stay hydrated and listen to your body.
