  • Females have the reputation of being savvy about what their hearts need—their emotional heart that is. Loving relationships with friends and family often top the list when it comes to matters of the heart. But women's hearts need attention on the physical side as well. Heart disease is the leading cause of death list for U.S. women. Have You Heard visited Ashland on Martin Luther King Day, to ask women "What steps do you take to keep your heart healthy?"

    Physically, I do a lot of working out and physical therapy and occasional running and swimming. Emotionally, I surround myself with people I love and try to stay proud of what I'm accomplishing in life.

    There are three things I do. Take supplements that deal with heart health. Stay in mental and spiritual health. I breathe and remember we're all one. I also exercise five times a week, about a half hour each time.

    I keep my heart healthy by being happy in every moment. Being joyous is a path to good health.

    I try to exercise every day, for almost 30 minutes each time. I try to use fresh fruits and vegetables when I can. My mom lived to be almost 90 years old. She was a positive thinker and I'm trying to follow her example.

    I try and eat correctly, and I eat locally. I reduce stress by yoga, deep breathing and getting out in nature. We're so lucky in this area, nature is all around. I do take vitamins, but nothing else.

    I try to spend as much time as I can with people who make me laugh.

    Good diet and enough sleep at night. I walk two to four miles a day and have lots of activity. I don't sit a lot, except at my computer. I don't sit because when I sit down, I think of things that need to be done.
