Screen Shot 2013 02 08 at 2.10.28 PM resized 600While many may view Valentine’s Day as a day of flowers, chocolates, cards and teddy bears, it is much more than that. Valentine’s Day is truly a time to celebrate the importance of relationships; with our parents, children, family, friends and significant other.  It is a time to tell those you care about and those who have made a difference your life how much they mean to you.

Think of Valentine’s Day as a day to remember how to love yourself and others, how to help other people love others, how to be grateful and live in peace. On this day, think in terms of love and focus on your heart’s needs; medical, physical, spiritual and emotional.  A happy and healthy heart is key to a long, stress-free life. Take the time to truly enjoy the relationships you have with others in your life.

Make sure you spend this Valentine’s Day enjoying the company of others and making your heart happy. It is easy to find peace participating in activities you love most.

It may be a coincidence, but February is also National Heart Awareness Month. Not only is it important to keep your heart healthy in a spiritual and emotional sense, but also from a medical standpoint. It is important to get routine checkups and pay attention to your current health conditions. Being educated on heart disease and prevention is important for you and loved ones, especially as one ages.

United Methodist Homes hope this Valentines Day is filled with an immense amount of love for you and your loved ones. If you are interested in learning more about taking care of your heart health and heart disease prevention click the photograph below for more information.

About Elizabeth Bemis

In 1998, I drove past an assisted living community construction site, learned that it was part of United Methodist Homes and realized the next stop on my professional journey was to work for a mission driven organization. Soon after, I joined the team as Executive Director of our Middlewoods of Farmington community and later served as Regional Manager for the Middlewoods properties before accepting my current role as Vice President of Marketing, Promotions, and Assisted Living Operations. I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, reading, walking, and love working alongside our staff, residents, and families to build strong communities that reflect the mission, vision, and values of United Methodist Homes.
