I’m wearing red today in observance of National Wear Red Day®—Friday, February 5, 2010 along with millions who will help spread the critical message that “Heart Disease Doesn’t Care What You Wear—It’s the #1 Killer of Women.” Heart disease kills five times as many women as breast cancer, yet most people probably do not know this startling fact.
Simply being a woman puts us at risk for developing heart disease as well as breast cancer. Some risk factors we have to live with and cannot change (gender, ethnicity, or our family history); some we can change (diet, activity level, finding ways to de-stress such as writing in a journal, even our attitude). According to the American Heart Association (www.americanheart.org), Americans can lower their risk of heart disease by as much as 82% just by leading a healthy lifestyle. In other words – tap into your creativity, learn ways to de-stress and take care of yourself before a health crisis forces you to make changes. Simple shifts create curative change.
What does this have to do with copywriting? Learning to make changes in my life after my two breast cancer episodes had a tremendous impact on my healing process. I can bring that flexibility and creativity to your writing project.
