Wear Red on Feb 2. for National Wear Red Day!

by Rosanne Ullman | January 31, 2018

We asked our Council members: February is Heart Month, and February 2 is National Wear Red Day. Do you wear red, or do you or your company recognize heart health in any other way?

“Cardiac disease—including diabetes, stroke and high blood pres-sure—is one of the leading causes of death. My sister happens to be a cardiac nurse, and I hear daily about the devastation heart disease causes. We can incorporate a few foods to help keep literal heartbreak at bay: Eat a handful of healthy nuts such as almonds or walnuts; try blueberries, strawberries, cranberries or raspberries, which are full of heart-healthy phytonutrients and soluble fiber; and add flaxseeds in ground or milled form to any smoothie and you won’t know they’re there—they contain omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and phytoestrogens to boost heart health. On Heart Day, February 2, Wear your favorite red lipstick and tell coworkers about the changes you’re making for better heart health!" —ANNA MANUKYAN, assistant VP education Matrix and Biolage

“Mario Tricoci offers an annual Healthy Steps program that offers prizes as team members track their activity. Our “Help Yourself to Better Health” wellness program lets team members earn up to $250 in their health savings account by participating in either an annual wellness exam or a wellness coaching program. Another exciting new benefit we are offering this year is the Employee Assistance Program, which offers problem-solving support, work life services, educational offerings and other health and wellness benefits." —LARRY SILVESTRI, president, America’s Beauty Show by Cosmetologists Chicago and senior VP and COO, Mario Tricoci Hair Salons & Day Spas

“Pivot Point International believes in promoting heart health overall. Since ergonomic studies have shown that sitting too much can increase heart failure, Pivot Point employees at our Chicago head-quarters can choose a desk that rises, so they can stand rather than sit the whole workday. Salons could also incorporate a standing desk for their receptionist and guest service providers. Not only is it a health benefit, it also helps the guest service representative make direct eye contact with the client." —PAUL SUTTLES, senior director, education implementation, North America, Pivot Point International, Inc.
