Consistency. Consistency gets results. Persistence gets the ball rolling but consistency keeps it going. I listen to some type of personal development every day. Twice this week I heard the same analogy in regards to consistency and it stuck with me. If I've heard it twice then I thought I definitely needed to share it with you. The story was about an old well pump. You had to really pump the handle over and over again for a period of time before you finally get a trickle of water. If you keep pumping you'll eventually get a steady stream. Now if you continue to pump the stream just keeps coming and is actually easier now. If you stop pumping you lose the stream. You then have to start all over again pumping and pumping just to get it to start. Moral of the story: stay consistent and you don't have to work as hard starting over each time. This can be in many aspects of life. Business, work, parenting, nutrition, workouts, etc. How many of you have started and stopped something too many times to count? Let me help you with consistency. Trust me, it makes things a whole lot easier! #consistencyiskey #hearthealthmonth #persistencepaysoff #noexcuses #healthandwellness #columbiamo #nursemom #healthcoach #newyearnewyou #nursepractitioner #dontgiveup #persistenceiskey

HEART HEALTH TIP OF THE DAY: Take a 10-minute walk. If you don’t exercise at all, a brief walk is a great way to start. If you do exercise, it’s a good way to add more exercise to your day. #hea#heartthtips #hearthealthmonth #healthyhearts #heartmonth #heart #healthylifestyle

Did you know it's #HeartHealthMonth? While #veggies can get boring, I do my best to put my health first and incorporate them into every meal. I love roasting veggies because it's so easy and the end result is simply delicious! Simply drizzle olive oil, sprinkle salt and pepper and cook at 400 degrees. This method is very flexible and works every time. So, go ahead... buy a veggie you've never tried before! . . . . . #startingfromscratch #homemade #startingcookbook #eas#easyrecipe> #easyrecipe #learntocook #inthekitchen #sim#simplerecipes #simplerecipe #roastedveggies #Roastedvegetables #hostesswiththemostess #bridetobe #bridalgift #newlywedgift #cookbook #eeeeeats #infatuation #f52grams #feedfeed #huffposttaste #eater #eaterdallas #zagat #bonappetit #eattheworld #lefooding

Higher intensity = better heart health! When you work out at a high intensity, the blood starts to pump a lot harder, which strengthens your heart. #hearthealth #hearthealthmonth #healthyliving #fitness #circuittraining #hiit #highintesityintervaltraining #highintensity

Let's talk about coconut oil! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ February is Heart Month, so there is no better time to talk about this "miracle food" that has been growing in popularity in recent years with claims that it can help with weight loss, digestion, immunity, and most importantly, a healthy heart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While coconut oil is made up of almost 90% saturated fat (shown to increase risk of heart disease), it has been touted as heart-healthy based on the suggestions that it: • raises HDL ("good") cholesterol, and • is high in "medium chain trigerlycerides" which are processed more favourably by the body than "long chain triglycerides" in the saturated fat found in most other plant-based oils. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Still, there is little reputable evidence to prove that coconut oil is a healthy alternative to other oils - for heart health and other benefits. The results of human studies have been conflicting, and much of the evidence comes from animal trials. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My suggestion? Let's step away from the notion of individual "superfoods", and instead, focus on overall dietary lifestyle habits that are established contributors to health. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Want to lower your risk of heart disease? Try there proven heart healthy tips: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • incorporate sources of omega 3 fatty acids (found in fish, nuts, flax) into your diet⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • up your fiber intake - oats, whole grains, fruits and vegetables are good choices⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • watch out for salt, and focus on sources of potassium instead, such as sweet potato, winter squash, broccoli and bananas⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • get active - aim for at least 150 minutes of activity per week ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For more info about heart health, visit www.heartandstroke.ca ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #phy#physiotherapyeyond #por#portcreditiotherapy #portcredit #physiotherapy #occupationaltherapy #massagetherapy #nutrition #registereddietitian #holistic #hearthealthmonth #coconut #coconutoil

The Science of Observational Art: Scientific inquiry and observational drawing as a tool to study the structure and function of the heart. I like to emphasize drawing in order to enhance children's observational skills and scientific awareness. A century ago drawing was taught as an essential skill for scientists. Reaching for realism is a stretch unless it's honed, nurtured and practiced with engaging natural subjects (i.e. A heart, a leaf, a flower, an insect). . . . Here's a great quote from The Scientific American: Creating a high-quality scientific illustration requires a thorough understanding of biological processes, anatomy, and structural diversity. A major part of learning to identify birds, insects or plants is knowing the key structures to focus on. Comparing limb bones among vertebrates requires an understanding of skeletal anatomy and evolutionary shifts. Biological illustration requires biological knowledge.

Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (a hardening and thickening of the walls of the arteries which may lead to a heart attack) claimed my mom's life and empowered mine. Causes: High blood pressure. High cholesterol. High triglycerides, a type of fat (lipid) in your blood. Smoking and other sources of tobacco. Insulin resistance, obesity or diabetes. Inflammation from diseases, such as arthritis, lupus or infections, or inflammation of unknown cause. Common Symptoms: Chest pain or angina. Pain in your leg, arm, and anywhere else that has a blocked artery. Shortness of breath. Fatigue.confusion, which occurs if the blockage affects circulation to your brain. Muscle weakness in your legs from lack of circulation. Ways to reduce plaque in the arteries: Eat a Mediterranean diet. It can reduce heart disease risk by 30%. Kick the habit. Smoking damages the lining of the arteries. Exercise. Aerobic exercise can raise HDL, lower blood pressure, burn body fat, and lower blood sugar levels. #N360LIFE #HeartHealthMonth #BeyondtheHeart #YourLIFEisBIGGERthanYOU
