National Wear Red Day is an annual American holiday created to support and raise awareness of women with cardiovascular disease. On this day, it is customary to wear red clothes, use red lipstick. Perhaps someone even wants to dye their hair. The holiday is celebrated annually on February 3rd.
The history of the holiday begins in 2002, when The Heart Truth magazine suggested using a red dress as a national female symbol of vascular and heart diseases. The holiday soon became firmly established and gained many fans. The establishment of the National Wear Red Day was of great importance. Awareness of the problem and prevention of the disease is an excellent approach to maintain health into old age.
In the modern world, women quite often suffer from diseases of the heart and blood vessels. This is primarily due to a hard working day and a lot of stress. After all, women often have to give all the best at work, managing everything on time, and also devote their free time to raising children. Busy days, going one after another, are fraught with chronic fatigue and overwork, which in the end can result in diseases associated with cardiovascular disease.
- The overwhelming cause (more than 70% of cases) of heart attacks in women under the age of 36 is smoking.
- Overweight women should stop wearing heels and high-soled shoes, as the load on the vessels and ligaments increases significantly.
- Stress and depressed emotional state several times increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease in the future.
