A message from the heart: move more, sit less

Today is World Heart Day, and the Heart Foundation Australia is urging you to know the facts about Cardiovascular Disease (CVD).

CVD is a leading cause of death in Australia, with 1 in 3 people dying each year from various diseases and conditions involving the heart and blood vessels.

The main types of Cardiovascular Disease are coronary heart disease, stroke and heart failure/cardiomyopathy.

Heart Foundation Australia want you to know how to get heart healthy and why you should make it a priority in your day-to-day life.

According to the World Heart Federation, it only takes a few small changes to switch direction and begin on a path toward a healthy heart: “Just a few simple steps such as eating more healthily, cutting down on alcohol and stopping smoking can improve your heart health and your overall well-being.”

So get behind this great cause and start sharing your Healthy Heart Selfies in support of #WorldHeartDay.

Find out more about World Heart Day, and some helpful facts about Cardiovascular Disease here.
