Office Walkabout

Name: Jennifer MacLean, Sydney Forks, NS

I'm part of: Heart and Stroke Foundation and Heart&Stroke WalkaboutTM 

#1 Health Goal: Continuing my recovery from a heart attack at age 39, by being active every day.

Biggest Challenge: Staying motivated

Biggest Accomplishment: Walking an hour a day and getting my colleagues more active by starting the Heart&Stroke Walkabout at my office 

I will continue to Live Right Now by: 
  • Making physical activity a priority in my life
  • Watching what I eat and choosing a low-fat diet
  • Taking time for myself to reduce stress

Personal Tip for Canadians: Make the time to take care of your health. Other things wait. The dishes will still be there later. The phone calls and messages will be there.

Starting soon: To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, for all new accounts, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted for existing community members in June.
