Do you know that today is World Heart Day? Oh no, you don’t? Well, you’re not alone. lol. All the while I thought hearts day is only celebrated in February and it’s just about chocolates, flowers, and cute cuddly bears. Tsk tsk.
Thanks to #PledgeYourHeart campaign by United Medical, I learned that today is more special because it’s about making our hearts feel loved – health wise!
From World Heart Federation website, “Join us on 29 September 2014 and take part in the biggest intervention against cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the world. This World Heart Day, our focus is on creating heart-healthy environments. By ensuring that people are able to make heart-healthy choices wherever they live, work and play, World Heart Day 2014 encourages us all to reduce our cardiovascular risk, and promotes a heart-healthy planet for those around us. There are many ways to get involved, from signing our petition to planning your own World Heart Day event. Please help us to give everyone the right to make Heart Choices NOT Hard Choices.”
Here in Dubai, United Medical has launched a campaign called #PledgeYourHeart to encourage women to take better care of themselves. The aim is to spread awareness about women’s heart problems/issues and how to lower the risk(s) for heart disease. This is to empower women to make heart health a priority in their daily lives.

Here’s mine: I pledge to keep my heart healthy not just for my loved ones but specially for myself.
As mentioned in an Arabic proverb, “He who has health has hope; and he who has hope has everything”
