First established in 1964 by President Lyndon Baines Johnson, Heart Month highlights the fact that heart disease is the number one cause of death in the US.

You might also want to use the tape measure as a tool to encourage event-goers or staff members to measure themselves as part of your heart health promotions. Many of us focus on our weight when it comes to measuring our health. But, where we carry fat on our body can often be a better marker for potential health problems.
Fat focused around the abdomen is a sign that your organs are surrounded by body fat. As such, belly fat is linked to heart disease, high cholesterol, stroke, and diabetes. Men should measure no more than 40 inches around their belly while 34 inches is the maximum for women.

If your company or organization is considering an activity-related event as part of your heart promotions, this pedometer is surely one of the best heart giveaway ideas. And, since it’s such a handy gadget, people are sure to get a lot of use out of it, meaning more exposure for your brand.
