Heart Month and the Power of Positivity
February is Heart Month! Heart disease is the second-leading cause of death in Canada. To improve our heart health MEDUCOM has started “Feel Good Friday.” Every Friday we meet as a team and everyone shares:
Something they learned that week
A “win” for the week
They can be personal or professional experiences. It’s a great way to spend some time together as a team and end the week on a positive note.
According to the American Heart Association maintaining a positive attitude is a great way to combat stress, which can lead to cardiovascular disease. In one study, after a 6-week workplace positivity program improvements were seen from baseline in employee life satisfaction, blood sugar levels, and some markers of cardiovascular inflammation.
Wishing everyone a healthy Heart Month!
