Look After Each others Hearts This Valentines

By 12th February 2019 No Comments

Your loved ones may have the key to your heart, but you have the control of its health by your food choices and being physically active. If you have delayed or have lapsed in the new years’ resolutions, then why not make the most of valentine’s day by caring for one another’s hearts, literally.

With age comes wisdom, and when you realise time is life’s most valuable commodity, then giving time is one of the most meaningful gifts you could give your loved one. Perhaps take a long, romantic walk and try to make it a regular habit. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderately intense physical activity each week to stay healthy. You can reach this goal by walking briskly for at least 30 minutes five days each week.

Prepare a healthy romantic candlelit dinner. Home cooking is not only cheaper, it is also an excellent way to control what, and how much you eat. If your cooking skills are not up to scratch, then perhaps have a date to a cooking class to improve your knowledge and your skills.

Use this day as an opportunity to tell your loved one how important they are to you, and share ways that you can support each other’s health and wellness. Get started by getting a health assessment together and have the piece of mind you are both healthy, or at least have the knowledge of any health implications you need to work towards in improving.
