On this last Friday of February and in the last full week of American Heart Month I cannot urge you enough to be mindful of your personal Heart Health! If you do not know your family history, search it out; if you are not active everyday, start a little at a time; if you aren't a healthy eater try changing things a few meals at a time. Heart disease is the #1 killer in America! I was reading online just this morning about an 8 year old boy suffering a heart attack yesterday while at his school located in North Carolina. All I can say is WOW. Reading that made me just pause and think #1 how lucky I am and #2 that I need to get on the ball with my own health. I hope as the DES PE teacher that I can be a role model for my students. I do not want to stand idling by, teaching one thing to my students and then doing something else on my own time. I am really going to try as hard as I can to always do as I say and not just tell kids to themselves do what I say and not what I do. Are any of us always going to be perfect, no. Can we strive to be our best, Yes! Please join me in trying to lead a healthy and active life! Below are links to articles concerning heart health:
