Spreading good energy to others is a little like jam. You can’t help but get some on yourself! Be purposeful in your living in March! I look at this as a kind of job but more a way of life that the Universe pays me for doing.
Peace & Blue Skies, Donna Bennett

February is heart heath month. Canandaigua The Medicine Shoppe continues sharing impressive, fun, helpful and maybe even shocking facts about the Heart.
Heart Health Fact # 12- Keep calm and …. Stay Heart Healthy? Studies suggest angry outbursts can boost the chance of heart attack and stroke.
Heart Health Fact # 13 – Healthy Heart, Healthy Mind. Good heart health when you’re young may increase your chances of staying mentally sharp as you age. (American Heart Association).
Heart Health Fact # 14 – Researchers think Beethoven had irregular heartbeat and that the condition may have inspired his greatest music. What is your favorite Beethoven piece? (A History of the Disorders of Cardiac Rhythms by Luderitz).
Heart Health Fact # 15 – A beating heart puts out between 1 and 5 watts of energy – about the same amount of electricity your DVR uses when on standby. (National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute)
Heart Health Fact #16 – Your heart pumps 1 million barrels of blood in an average lifetime. That’s enough blood to fill more than 1500 Olympic sized swimming pools! (George Washington University Heart and Vascular Institute).
Heart Health Fact #17 – Did you know that an octopus has three hearts but a jellyfish does not have a heart at all? Two of the hearts in an octopus pump blood (it happens to be the color blue) to the gills while the third circulates it throughout the body (NOAA).
We hope you have enjoyed learning more about the most important muscle in the body – the heart.
