Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and while that is something to smile about, we also wanted to touch base on a more topic situation this month.
Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S. Roughly 1 out of every 4 deaths is caused by this condition.
Strokes come in at number 5 on the list of deadly scenarios, according to the American Heart Association. This can be attributed largely to a lack of commitment to a “heart-healthy” lifestyle.
While these statistics are alarming, we can reduce the risk of heart disease and other heart problems by incorporating healthier lifestyle habits in our day to day lives, like following a healthy diet and being more active.
There are endless ways you can become more active, but walking more is perhaps the easiest step you can take towards healthier living. It is also one of the most effective exercises in terms of improving heart health.
According to the American Heart Association, some of the benefits of walking regularly include:
- Improved mood
- Better sleep
- Reduced risk of serious diseases (including heart disease)
- Improved blood pressure and cholesterol
- Increased energy and stamina
- Improved mental and emotional well-being
All you need to get moving and improve your heart health is a comfortable outfit and supportive shoes. Here at SAS, we recommend the Tour Mesh for women and the Journey Mesh for men. These comfortable active shoes are designed for walking.
They are handcrafted with high quality materials and offer the proper support and shock absorption your feet need. Comfort features include:
- SAS Foot-Shape® Last
- SAS CoolStep™ Footbed
- SAS TRIPAD ® Technology
- SAS Arcfit™ Heel Stabilizer
If you’re inactive now, starting off slow is perfectly okay. Walking just a few minutes a day can add up and make a positive impact in the long run.
With that said, gear up with SAS’ Tour Mesh and Journey Mesh and get moving!
