In case you’re wondering, yes I am alive. Yes I am finished my exams. I spent the weekend enjoying my time off with a trip to High Park, Blue Jays game, and an afternoon at the Stop’s beer garden.
So you know that trusty pedometer I’ve been using for my weight loss efforts? You can have one for your self. BUT first you have to have the S-talk. And lucky for you we don’t mean sex … we mean stroke.
A simple conversation could save lives. Protect the ones you love by having a talk about stroke. Help them know the signs, and to call 9-1-1 if it happens.
The first 3 1/2 hours are the most important after suffering a stroke. However only 35% of stroke survivors actually seek treatment within that time.
Here are the signs of stroke:
- trouble speaking
- vision problems
Visit the Heart and Stroke’s website for more information about how you could have the S-talk. Hint – use the nifty e-cards!
We are going to help you have the S-talk with this super healthy prize pack.
Contest open until 11:59pm Tuesday August 21st. Winner will be randomly drawn.
To enter, just comment below with who you need to have an S-talk with, or someone who you should have a heart health talk with.
