Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women. Our language suggests how strongly we believe in the emotional impact on our hearts. We use phrases like “staying young at heart”, “She died of a broken heart”, “The Lonely Hearts Club” and “She is so warm-hearted”. Research clearly shows that how we “feel in our hearts” plays a major role in our well-being. The message of “connection creates balance” inspires women to take good care of their hearts – in every sense of the word.
