I don’t know what it is about the month of February, but for some reason I find it to be a month of high energy for me. Maybe it’s because I’m so tired of being indoors all winter that I just have to start moving any way I can.
Or maybe it’s the early energizing effect of spring fever creeping up on me. But whatever it is, it leaves me wanting to make positive changes, especially in my diet and exercise regime.
And I have a feeling I’m not alone, since February is actually National Heart Health Month! Other people are experiencing that same motivation and desire to change that I have, and what better goal could there be than improving heart health!
Heart disease is actually the number one cause of death in Canada, so being proactive about heart health is always a good move.
But on the other hand, it’s still winter. Especially here in Saskatchewan. So while part of me is craving fresh fruit, light meals and exercise, another part is reacting to the cold with a desire for hearty, comforting fare to help fight back winter’s chill.
