🫀Let’s change our HEART HISTORY❤
🖤As we celebrate Black History Month, it is fitting that this is also Heart Health Month. There are some elements of our HEART history that we want to eliminate from our present so that we are writing a new history of Health and Wellness🤎
🫀cardiovascular disease, including heart disease, is a leading cause of death for African Americans affecting us disproportionately.
😳About 40% of African Americans aged 20 and older have hypertension. Hypertension tends to develop earlier in life for African Americans compared to other ethnic groups.
💣Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a leading risk factor for heart disease and strokes worldwide.
🌡 Uncontrolled hypertension can damage arteries and lead to serious health issues, including heart failure, kidney disease, and stroke.
BUT we can DO something about it!
It first starts with raising awareness by putting “Bells on Hyper Tension” so that it is no longer the silent killer in our community.
👊🏾I’m on a mission to TAKE DOWN the Hyper Tension monster and I hope you will join me.
⏸ Take a PAUSE to prioritize your heart health and stop and get your blood pressure checked sometime today ❤ Remember, small lifestyle changes can make a big difference. Check your blood pressure regularly, stay active, decrease salt, take #POSITIVITYPAUSES to decrease stress and make heart-healthy choices for a longer, healthier life. 🏥🍏
