Who do you go red for and why?
We go red for Piper and all our family members with heart disease. We feel it's important to live a healthy, active lifestyle, and enjoy being active together - including coaching and playing soccer!
How do you prioritize self-care?
I (Misty) have found over the years that I am a happier, more relaxed, better version of myself if I am able to get outside every day for a walk. I make it a priority to go on a two mile walk every morning after dropping off the kids at school. After my walk I feel energized and ready to take on the day!
What do you want women to know about heart disease and stroke?
I want women to know that heart disease and stroke can be prevented in part by practicing self-care. As a mom, I understand that our needs and wants often comes second or third to the needs and wants of family members. However, it is so important to practice self-care so we are around to take care of our family. Go on a walk, get some exercise, eat healthy; these are all ways we can care for ourselves to better care for our family.
