As a leading voice on improving the nation’s health, we urge everyone in the Greater Cleveland community to take important steps to make sure they are heart healthy so they can lead longer, healthier and happier lives.
To keep bodies moving and hearts healthier, the Y offers many wellness classes and chronic disease prevention programs that help people of all ages get on a path to healthy living. Check out your local Y’s group exercise schedule here.
Once you’ve gotten moving, take another easy step to maintain a healthy heart: start giving.
You know the feeling – the warm, fuzzy one you get when you do something good? Turns out: it’s good for your health. A growing body of research shows that giving a gift, as well as volunteering or donating to a good-cause, has a positive impact on your physical and mental health, and can contribute to a longer life.
At the Y, you can practice both all at the same time. Your membership dues don’t just provide you with workout equipment. It provides a safer, stronger and healthier community. So, make sure to #ShareTheLove
Strengthen your heart. Strengthen your community. Strengthen yourself.
