February Calendar Offers Heart Healthy Tips

Download now for daily exercise and nutrition challenges

Join The Rapides Foundation Get Healthy Cenla Challenge, a daily challenge designed to encourage people to improve their nutrition and physical activity. Our goal is for everyone to eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day, and get at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity a day, five days a week. 

The February Challenge Calendar helps you learn the benefits of a heart healthy lifestyle. February is National Heart Health Month, and the nutrition and exercise tips included on the calendar support heart healthy habits. The calendar encourages eating a balanced diet of foods such as fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, lean protein, low-fat dairy, whole grains, nuts, and seeds that provide your body with the nutrients it needs to function properly. Activities like walking, swimming, dancing and biking can play a part in reducing cholesterol levels. Like all muscles, the heart benefits from regular physical activity so it's a good idea to find activities you enjoy and get moving for 30-60 minutes at least five days a week. Use these monthly challenge calendars for inspiration and motivation for your healthy lifestyle goals.

Links to all of these resources are also in the "More Links" section below this article. 

The challenges on our calendar are prepared by trained staff in our CMAP Healthy Lifestyle Program. They are designed to be simple and realistic. If you find the challenges too easy, try doubling the amounts. If they are too hard, don't worry. Do what you can, and have fun! 

The Get Healthy Cenla Challenge is a component of the Healthy Lifestyle Program, a lifestyle coaching program. The purpose of the Healthy Lifestyle Program is to provide demonstration and education on proper nutrition and physical activity for good health aimed at fighting chronic disease in Central Louisiana.
