GUEST BLOG: Heart-Healthy Summertime!
Summer is one of the best times of the year, and it typically comes with more freedom and opportunity to be outside, especially for our kiddos! However, it can also become easy to lack motivation or become overwhelmed by the summer heat when we aren’t paying direct attention to how we can prevent things like heat stroke and exhaustion.
Happy Minds. Healthy Hearts.
Did you know your four-legged friend could help boost health and well-being? Heart disease and stroke are the world’s top killers. Studies show that pets are good for your health. They can help you get more exercise, may lower blood pressure and cholesterol, cut stress and boost happiness.
