Inspirational Quotes for Heart Health

It's February 12th; the day I was invited to be the Ambassador for The Heart Truth program. Just in case you didn't know it, February is heart month.  We want to get the word out.

Heart disease is the #1 killer of women.  

Too many people consider heart disease to be a man's disease but that's not true. I want to encourage women to take better care of themselves and to know their risk factors.

I was so excited that the theme for today is:

Share an Inspirational Quote!

Now that's right up my alley.  I love to inspire and motivate people to make healthy choices.  I worked as a cardiovascular nurse for 25 years after all.

So I will get the ball rolling and begin sharing:
  • "Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do." John Wooden
  • "You are what you repeatedly do." Aristotle
  • "You must do the thing you cannot do."  Eleanor Roosevelt
  • "Exercise in the morning before your brain figures out what you're doing." Unknown
  • "Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles; it empties today of its strength." Mary Engelbreit
  • "A goal properly set is halfway reached." Zig Ziglar
  • "When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you do not change your decision to get there."  Zig Ziglar
  • "Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try." Zig Ziglar
  • "Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible." Tony Robbins
  • "A year from now you will wish you had started today." Karen Lamb
  • "Don't wait. The time will never be just right." Napoleon Hill
I thought this was a great quote to end with.  I found it on a friend's Facebook page. Thank you Joani!

  1. Good for you Debbie! You are perfect for this job. I have read all of these quotes and they are so good. If it were not so early in the morning, I might be able to think of one to add, my brain isn't awake yet, but I will enjoy reading through all of these again. Have a great day Miss Heart Ambassador! :)

    Love you.

I enjoyed all of these quotes, but especially like...You are what you repeatedly do...so true, and also, Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles; it empties today of its strength. Love that. If I think of a good one to add I will be back, meanwhile, have a good day Debbie!

  3. James 5:12 Above all, my brothers and sisters, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. All you need to say is a simple “Yes” or “No.”

  7. Love all these quotes and especially the one about exercising in the morning before your brain figures it out. Guess that's why I've always exercised in the morning. Wishing you a Happy Hearts Day!!

  8. Dear Debbie
    Yes, there are so many small things we can do to look after yourself. I just love the Eleanor Roosevelt quote. I can relate. Being disabled with Fm/CFS has taught me to do what I never thought possible.
