American Heart Association recommends forming healthy habits to replace the bad in 2018

SADDLE BROOK, NJ — A new year brings new commitments, new ideas, and most of all New Year’s resolutions. While diet and exercise are usually top of mind, making simple changes to your lifestyle can help you reach that goal and continue to create good habits in your everyday life. 

Substituting healthy habits for unhealthy ones rewards you with more stamina, better quality of life—and a healthier you. This may be easier said than done but with access to information such as Life’s Simple 7 and online workouts, creating a healthy lifestyle is something we all can do at our own pace.

There is no better time than a new year to look forward and make the changes that lead to a better you.  This is also a great time to explore new hobbies and learn more about yourself to ensure a better future for you and your family.

Here are some small changes you can make in your everyday life that can create a big impact on your overall health:

Stop Smoking. Bad habits are hard to quit. Educate yourself on the benefits of quitting smoking to help motivate you and make a plan to stop. Try replacing your cigarette breaks with a hobby or something that inspires you.

Set Goals. February is American Heart Month. Start the month by setting goals for yourself each week and celebrate your wins.  Break a big goal into smaller, short-term goals to help ease you through it.

Have a Cheat Day. Be sure to allow yourself a break and enjoy your favorite treats in moderation.

Get Educated and Get Involved. Not sure what your blood pressure is? Visit your doctor and know your numbers to help create your overall health plan.  Learn more by joining the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement, a national awareness campaign that educates the public on women’s heart health and stroke.

A Special Thank You For Helping Us Weather The Storm

June 18, 2018

About a month ago, on May 15, 2018, something happened to me and my family that changed our lives. An act of God, apparently a “microburst,” tore through our front yard, and uprooted an approximately 19,000 pound tree. The tree fell into my 8 month old’s bedroom destroying the entire structure of our home.

My husband, with what I call divine intervention, told us to go ...
