Today is Movement for Movement Monday at Aortic Hope!
👣 In 2020 Aortic Hope started a MOVEMENT for MOVEMENT!!!
❤️As we all know, doing nothing is doing something however, many of us need some support to simply get moving (whatever that may be for you)
🛑 🛑 DID YOU KNOW....that as seen in Harvard Health Publishing, "Meditation Offers Significant Heart Benefits". Some might think that mediation isn't doing much however, "It helps reduce stress and anxiety, which can lower heart rate and blood pressure while reducing harmful hormones." For more information, check out the article here.
👩⚕️Following your doctor's orders, do whatever he/she has cleared you to do. This can be sit and fold laundry, walk to the mailbox, walk around the mall, stroll outside, walk around the inside of your home, try the stairs....whatever you do, just MOVE!
✔️ Fear can hold us back, fear that an aneurysm will grow if we move too much, fear we will get too tired, fear we can get hurt. It's time to work through the fear. We CAN do this together!
📸 Post a picture of what type of movement you are doing today or write about it! Inspire someone else to feel inspired to do something as well.
🏆 We will be providing gentle reminders throughout the months and giving away random prizes from those that submit descriptions or pictures.
