Make every month Heart Month

February was American Heart Month, and the Katz Institute for Women’s Health, along with the American Heart Association, encourage you to learn more, get involved and take action when it comes to the very important topic of heart health.

Northwell Health is a sponsor of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement. On Friday, February 2, women across New York and the United States wore red to make a statement to help prevent heart disease and stroke. We encourage you to participate in one or more of our upcoming events on the topic of heart health, including heart health screenings, lectures and more.

Prevent kidney stones

One in 10 individuals will experience a kidney stone over the course of a lifetime, and these numbers are on the rise, according to the National Kidney Foundation. Yet, you can greatly minimize your chance of developing this painful condition by staying hydrated. By drinking plenty of water, especially during physical activity, you can overcome water lost due to sweating and keep yourself sufficiently hydrated.

Try a new sport

Are you stuck in a rut with your exercise routine? It might be time to venture beyond the tried and true and experiment with a new sport. From indoor climbing gyms and Frisbee golf to social dancing and trapeze, there’s no shortage of options to try. With a growing array of sports and activities open to grown-ups, there are plenty of ways to infuse some excitement to your workout.

Reduce salt in your diet

The National Kidney Foundation says the average American consumes 50 percent more than the recommended daily quantity of sodium. Diets high in sodium can increase blood pressure levels, which can impact cardiovascular health, as well as your kidneys. Making some simple dietary changes can reduce your salt intake. These include choosing fresh cuts of beef, chicken or pork over processed deli meats, and reading food labels to check the sodium content of packaged foods.
