Wear Red for Valentine’s and for Women! February 11 2015, 0 Comments

February is the month for red. From red hearts and red roses to red lipstick and red dresses, the bright color helps cheer us all up on these dreary cold winter days. Most of us associate that passionate color with the love and romance of Valentine’s Day. But wearing red in the month of February isn’t just for Valentine’s Day anymore. Thanks to the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign, wearing red signifies your awareness that heart disease isn’t just a man’s disease. One in three women die of heart disease or stroke, and through education and raising awareness the AHA is communicating that there is a way to prevent those deaths and hopefully lower the numbers.

This is a message we totally get behind here at Go Free Pants. After all, being healthy and feeling good is the first step in feeling sexy and having confidence in yourself.

Take the advice of the AHA, and make some changes in your lifestyle to reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. Here are a few small ways that make a big difference:

  • Get more active. Whether it’s parking farther away from a store’s entrance so the walk is longer or setting up a regular date at the gym, getting your body moving is important for good heart health.
  • Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables and low in saturated fats.
  • Control your blood pressure, especially if it is already high.
  • Get a good night’s sleep.

Let the world know you’re aware of the risk factors and ways to prevent heart disease by wearing red often this month. People will definitely notice you in that bright color! Pick out your favorite red sweater or blouse and pair it with our comfortable Lindsay cords. You’ll not only feel sexy, but you’ll also be supporting a great cause!
