How Our Family Is Staying Heart Healthy

I like to think of my family as pretty adventurous, we stay active and eat healthy. On nice days we’d rather be outside of our house together then inside and even when it’s pouring rain we always manage to find something to do. This year my husband and I have decided to make a real commitment to doing more as a family and doing it affordably.

This month we teamed up with Bayer Asprin to show off the ways that our family stays heart healthy and active. This past weekend we took our girls to an indoor play place and had fun running around and playing games. Then we went bowling which is an activity we found the whole family can participate in and that the whole family likes to do.

This month we also did cartwheels on the beach.

Ran around looking for seashells.

We like to monkey around.

And we often hike to high peaks.

In my family I believe that eating a healthy balanced diet is important for heart health and eating plenty of fresh fruits and veggies is important. Also staying active and getting plenty of exercise is good for the heart and for overall health. It’s not that we’re just staying heart healthy this month it’s that we’ve made a commitment to making it part of our lifestyle. I can say that my family enjoys spending time together and that’s also just as good for the heart.

In honor of Heart Health Month, Joy Behar and her daughter Eve are working with the makers of Bayer® Aspirin to challenge everyone to take the IamProHeart Pledgeand commit to living a more heart healthy lifestyle.
