National Wear Red Day!

“The sweet spot = when your personal and professional worlds not only intersect, but exist symbiotically.”

This has become my mantra lately, and it’s even scrawled on my Facebook page.

At work recently, I’ve been able to combine my off-the-clock passions for healthy living/fitness/nutrition and social media as I’ve become involved in our work for the American Heart Association.

You might recall a few weeks ago I did a post about American Heart Month. Have you become a fan of the American Heart Association on Facebook and/or are you following AHA on Twitter @American_Heart) yet? (Pretty please?!? 🙂

Well, tomorrow is National Wear Red Day! And since I know I have a captive audience of (mostly) women here who are likely concerned about their own heart-health (and overall health) I thought I’d use this “reach” for a good cause today.

Too many women die each year because they are unaware that heart disease is their No. 1 killer. So if you’re on Facebook, please make your profile picture red and Speak Up for women’s heart health.  You can learn about the cause here.

And if you have a blog, would you consider linking to this post, or doing a post about women’s heart health?! Thank you for all your support!

Let’s Go Red For Women! We’re worth it!

  1. It doesn’t matter in what way you are involved you are doing wonderful by spreading the word! I like you started to get involved with the AHA through work (I worked at a hospital), and being a heart disease survivor myself every event that I get involved with for the AHA brings me great satisfaction and pride. I am now going on my 3rd year as a volunteer for the AHA San Diego.

    Well anyhow just wanted to say how great it is to run into people that feel so passionate about the same thing as I do. Also great blog and congrats on your pregnancy!!!!
