As a heart attack survivor, I want to bring awareness to heart healthy life choices so the people I love, live, and work with can make tweaks to their lives while still living a full and happy life, with as little risk of a catastrophic episode as possible. Like many of you, I have gone through life with a work hard play hard attitude with only phases healthy living. I am learning now how to live a full life, continue working on things I love, enjoying life with my wife, friends, and family, but doing it in a way where I can sustain a healthier life.
Much of the change starts with a reframing of life from a mental state and surrounding yourself with resources and people who can be a positive influence in your life. The people I have met at American Heart Association have been a great group of people to help me access education and support.
But there is so much more that needs to be done to bring awareness to the broader audience...
Will you be an advocate and supporter? Will you join the walk?
More importantly, will you join me in learning about healthier living and start making better choices for you and your loved ones?
