AUBURN _ Many people began the New Year with intentions of incorporating a healthier way of living into their lives. In the United States alone, 44 percent of Americans (the same percentage as 2014) made resolutions to make a change to their current lifestyle, according to a poll by the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, in Poughkeepsie, New York. Interestingly, but not surprisingly, a large percentage of those people who made resolutions to engage in a healthier lifestyle did not keep their resolutions.

On Wednesday, February 11, 2015 beginning at 8 a.m. (registration begins at 7:30 a.m.) at the Auburn/Webster Lodge of Elks, 754 Southbridge St. in Auburn, Cathy Hoover-Smith, CEO and Founder of South County Physical Therapy (SCPT) will present a program detailing simple steps on how to live a healthier lifestyle at the Auburn Chamber of Commerce’s February Networking Breakfast.

Hoover-Smith has dedicated her life’s work to the betterment of human health through her exemplary work as a top physical therapist, and through her mission of promoting a healthier lifestyle to those patients she has worked with and inspired. An individual who “walks the walk,” Hoover-Smith exemplifies the benefits of purposeful healthy living in her own life through her adept knowledge of nutrition and the benefits of exercise.

“Very often, a fast-paced lifestyle can make us feel like we’re running on empty. Because our daily routines consume so much of our time, our health and well-being will often take a back seat. This vicious cycle can take a serious toll on our health mentally and physically,” said Hoover-Smith. “Fortunately, with knowledge of a few simple steps, you can positively improve your overall health, well-being, and most importantly, your happiness.”

A perfect way to celebrate American Heart Month in February, Hoover-Smith’s presentation demonstrates how attendees can achieve healthy living by getting a good night’s sleep; having  proper posture; and choosing foods that will increase energy and exercise. In this compelling program, she will demonstrate numerous ways people can realize results by making the changes necessary to achieve improved physical health and well-being that will not only create positive life changes, but can also impact a healthy heart.

For 30 years, Hoover-Smith and her team of experts have demonstrated her passion and commitment for healthy living by presenting relevant seminars, participating in health expos, and hosting numerous health educational programs and lectures across the region.

As we look forward to February as American Heart Month, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reminds us to learn the risks for heart disease and stroke and to take steps to achieve a healthier lifestyle. By incorporating a healthier diet, and exercise program, along with the knowledge provided by numerous organizations supporting prevention and recovery, you can achieve a higher level of healthy living one step at a time.
