Don't Break Your Heart This Valentine's Day

It is the season of love, chocolates, and flowers. Imagine this: dressing up in your favorite outfit, spraying on perfume or cologne, clutching a gift that you know your lover will go ecstatic about, and sauntering over to your significant other's place. Just when you clutch their hand and gaze into their eyes, you feel a peculiar throb in your chest. Excited palpitation? Perhaps not! When the pain fills your chest you collapse onto your lover's chest. Not your idea of a sweet Valentine's Day right?

Valentine's Day is not meant to be spent rushing to the ER. The heart that you want to give away to your special someone needs to be healthy and beating. Save your heart this month.
