“All of us are challenged in one way or another to stay healthy. But making smart choices doesn’t have to be difficult and, in fact, can be fun,” LIAT KOBZA, wrote in the Stanford Medical School’s SCOPE blog. “That’s what Stanford Hospital & Clinics had in mind when it launched a month-long heart health challenge,” she added.
“The 28-Day Heart Health Challenge focuses on simple changes people can make to their diets and exercise routines that can have a big impact on their heart health. Each day of the week features a different theme with a related challenge. For example, on Stress-less Saturdays you will be reminded of how detrimental chronic stress can be to heart health and be challenged to give meditation or yoga a try. On Meet a Doctor Monday you’ll be introduced to a Stanford physician who will describe what he or she does to keep the heart healthy and then be challenged to try out a similar strategy.”
