A Culture of Health
The American Heart Association is a science-based organization and during this challenging time. We want you to know we continue our work in fighting heart diseases and stroke, the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of all Americans. We are doing so with everyone’s health and safety in mind as we carry out our mission of being a relentless force for longer, healthier lives.
Feelings of stress, anxiety, uneasiness and lack of sleep can make it difficult to function normally. Mental health and physical health are closely linked, so finding ways to combat and manage stress in the (virtual) workplace and exercise while working remotely.
With school and gym closings, our exercise routines are no longer routine. Use this time as an opportunity to switch up our workout regimen, which can help to boost our immune system, help relieve mental stress and improve overall health.
We know that many of you may be cooking more at home right now. While some may find the thought of cooking stressful, making healthy meals is a great way to protect your heart. The American Heart Association has resources to fit all skillsets starting with How To Cook Healthier at Home. For those wishing to improve their abilities, there’s an entire section dedicated to culinary techniques. Here are a few easy recipes that use pantry staples.
