Healthy Heart, Happy Living Back
February is the month of love. Love for family, friends, yourself, and especially your heart. That is why February is American Heart Month, a month-long observance to raise awareness for heart disease and to promote heart health. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, so education of all things heart-related is extremely important. Now I won’t go on and spit facts at you or tell you to eat your veggies, but The Pines at Bellaire is a community that strives to ensure you have everything you need to keep your heart healthy and happy!
For starters, our resort-style dining and chef-prepared meals are catered towards all diets and contain all the nutrients your heart loves. Our phenomenal chef at The Pines at Bellaire prepares every meal with fresh ingredients daily. Foods such as eggs, fish, lean meat, nuts and seeds, whole grains and fresh produce are all strategically chosen because of their importance to heart health. Controlled portions and proper serving sizes are also important to making sure you get the right nutrients daily.
The Pines at Bellaire offers plenty of opportunities for fitness and exercise, geared towards seniors in Houston, Texas. From walking around the property to Chair Yoga and Tai Chi, all of our residents have the resources and options for exercise they enjoy. Just fifteen to thirty minutes of low intensity exercise increases cardiovascular function. Whether you can move better than a 20-year-old or need a more modified routine, The Pines at Bellaire has what you need to get your blood pumping.
Everyone is different so discussing your personal diet, weight, and exercise habits with your doctor is the best way to develop a routine that works for you and your body. Being aware of your risk is the best way to improve and prevent heart disease.
Your heart is important. You should be happy and healthy socially, physically, emotionally, and internally. Live your healthiest life at The Pines at Bellaire.
