Earth Day and Your Heart

Happy Early Earth Day! 

April 22nd is our official earth day celebration, are you going to do anything special?

I plan on getting outside and enjoying our precious earth!

There are some things to do in Austin and you can find them on Austin360.   I recommend planting a tree, riding a bike, or going for a walk.  Just getting outside is great, but add some exercise and you are helping your heart!

WikiHow  tells where the idea of Earth Day came about.

The celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd began in the United States in 1970 and was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson, who had long pondered about finding a way to “put the environment into the political ‘limelight’ once and for all” (his words). There are actually two Earth Day celebrations (the other one is held in March on the equinox, see “Tips”) but this article focuses on the April 22 Earth Day, which is now celebrated in most countries of the world. Earth Day is a perfect time to reflect about what you are doing to help protect the environment. There are many ways that you can celebrate alone and with others.

They also have some great ideas about how to celebrate it; such as plant a tree, recycle all day, have children recycle toys (excuse for spring cleaning), ride your bike, and of course wear green!

I think it would so great to change your Facebook profile pic to something earthy!  I plan on changing mine for the week!

If you are a teacher of any kind there are some great ideas on Edutopia’s Earth Day Challange!

I would love to hear what you plan on doing for Earth Day!

Have a Heart Healthy Day!

cpr instructor certification

Alert the Press!

Heart Smart CPR is now a training site!

As of November 21st Heart Smart CPR is accepting new CPR instructors through our new CPR instructor certification.  This is a huge step forward for our company.  It has been quite a year and it all came together with this step in the right direction.  I plan to expand further in the future, but for now we will focus on training Heartsaver CPR and AED instructors and BLS for Healthcare providers instructors.  Austin CPR is vital to so many different fields, and there is so much room for the American Heart Association to spread life-saving knowledge; and I am so excited to be a part of the expansion.  If you have every considered becoming a CPR in Texas, give me a call and we can talk about if our CPR instructor certification is right for you!

Have a heart healthy day!
