September 2020 | National Cholesterol Education Month

Resolution to Lifestyle

No Matter The Day - It Will Be Music2YourFeet!
-Denise Bryant, Founder

***

September is National Cholesterol Education Month, a good time to get your blood cholesterol checked and take steps to lower it if it is high. National Cholesterol Education Month is also a good time to learn about lipid profiles and about food and lifestyle choices that help you reach personal cholesterol goals.

What is cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance found in your body and many foods. Your body needs cholesterol to function normally and makes all that you need. Too much cholesterol can build up in your arteries. After a while, these deposits narrow your arteries, putting you at risk for heart disease and stroke.

How do you know if your cholesterol is high?

High cholesterol usually doesn’t have any symptoms. As a result, many people do not know that their cholesterol levels are too high. However, doctors can do a simple blood test to check your cholesterol. High cholesterol can be controlled through lifestyle changes or if it is not enough, through medications.

It’s important to check your cholesterol levels. High cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States.

If you have high cholesterol, what can you do to lower it?

Your doctor may prescribe medications to treat your high cholesterol.5 In addition, you can lower your cholesterol levels through lifestyle changes:

▪ Low-fat and high-fiber food (Eat more fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, and whole grains).
▪ For adults, getting at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate or 1 hour and 15 minutes of vigorous physical activity a week. For those aged 6-17, getting 1 hour or more of physical activity each day. Join Music2YourFeet virtually on our YouTube channel or at one of our outdoor dance classes (must wear your mask and practice social distancing).
▪ Maintain a healthy weight.
▪ Don’t smoke or quit if you smoke.

CDC Programs That Address Cholesterol
National Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program
Since 1998, CDC has funded state health departments’ efforts to reduce the number of people with heart disease or stroke. Health departments in 41 states and the District of Columbia currently receive funding for these activities. These programs promote policy and system level changes at the state and community level to support heart-healthy and stroke-free living and working conditions.

WISEWOMAN
The WISEWOMAN program helps women with little or no health insurance reduce their risk for heart disease, stroke, and other chronic diseases. The program helps women aged 40 to 64 years quit smoking, improve their diet, and increase physical activity. WISEWOMAN also offers tests for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. CDC funds 21 WISEWOMAN projects in 19 states and two tribal organizations.

Lipid Standardization Program
CDC’s Environmental Health Laboratory serves as the world reference laboratory for measuring cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoproteins, and low-density lipoproteins. Doctors require accurate measurements to diagnose and properly treat people with high cholesterol levels. The laboratory helps ensure the quality of about 35 million cholesterol measurements made annually in the United States.

Stillness In My PPE Press Release General

Denise,
I want to share with you and your beautiful community my recently published prompt journal, Stillness In My PPE: A Guided Journal of Praise, Prayer, and Enlightenment During Pandemics. I feel it can be a help to your dance ministry members as we navigate these turbulent times. For it was in the stillness of my own pandemic season of Covid-19 and racial injustice, this prompt journal was placed very explicitly on my heart. Hence this journal was born and I am compelled to share it with the world. For more of the backstory about my journal publication, please see my interview post on YouTube.

The journal is available for purchase at Lulu.com.
