We truly believe that modern spirituality and healthy living starts from the center of our being – in the heart. The heart chakra bridges our more physical lower chakras with our spiritual upper chakras.
To bring the heart into balance, we combine practices that promote our wellbeing on the earth and that fuel our Divine soul.
It’s common to associate the month of February with our hearts since it’s the month we celebrate love and connection on Valentine’s Day.
While spending time nourishing the energetic resonance of our hearts is important, there’s another aspect we need to pay attention to – our cardiovascular health. National Wear Red Day helps us recognize women’s unique struggle with the threat of heart disease.
Bringing Awareness to Women’s Heart Health on National Wear Red Day
As we all know, heart attacks are sudden, unexpected, and often fatal. This special day aims to reduce the likelihood of fatal heart attacks, especially among women.
What’s Unique About Women’s Heart Health?
We recognize a heart attack as sharp chest pain, called angina, the type that makes us grab at our heart. Pains and sensations shooting through the arms might also signal a heart attack, but it turns out women often overlook important indications that something is wrong.
Heart disease is the number one health-related killer of American women. Many women don’t realize when they experience a heart attack until it’s too late.
Symptoms can include a feeling of general discomfort, pain radiating through the lower back, headache, and chest pain.
For women conditioned by society to grit through the pain of womanhood, they ignore these sensations as something that will pass, which can have a severe impact on their health.
The Role of Awareness & Prevention
In 2004, the first National Wear Red Day was recognized in February, which was deemed the month American Heart Month, raising awareness about heart health. It lands on the first Friday – that’s February 4 this year.
Its intention is to put the focus on women and teach them how to prioritize their cardiovascular health.
It turns out that we can prevent at least 80% of the different kinds of heart disease that contribute to heart attack. Adopting a healthy lifestyle that balances physical and mental wellbeing goes the distance to give us a healthy heart.
How to Observe the Day
The most obvious way to celebrate is to wear red! Go all out, head to toe! It’ll spark a compliment and the opportunity to bring up its meaning. Spread the awareness.
At Karma and Luck, we have an entire collection of jewelry that speaks to the heart of this holiday. Red String meaning ties perfectly to heart health. We all need a little luck in life to get through, and Red String jewelry helps us manifest dreams, like maintaining an active lifestyle.
It brings protection of our auras and unlocks our purpose and potential. Intentional living reduces stress that wears on our hearts.
Let’s take a look at some of our favorite styles to help you celebrate. Gift one to someone you love to let them know you value their heart for the love and life it gives.
