Today (Feb. 5) is National Wear Red Day to support the fight against heart disease. Surprisingly, heart disease (not cancer or diabetes) is the No. 1 killer of American women.  So let’s all show we care today and wear something red!

Go Red Charm Bracelet, $40

Another way to lend support is to make a donation to assist medical research, raise awareness, and  fund education and community programs that help women live longer, stronger heart-healthy lives.

Seven simple steps to improve your heart health are:

  • Stay active
  • Eat better
  • Reduce your blood sugar
  • Manage your blood pressure
  • Control your cholesterol
  • Lose weight
  • Stop smoking

You can also shop the Go Red online store, where you may just find something cute to wear on that other special day to wear red.
