A DIFFERENT MONTH FOR THOSE IN LOVE – A MONTH DEDICATED TO THE HEALTH OF THE HEART
Traditionally every year in the past decade, the hospital’s team has been making sure to mark the month of February as a month dedicated to the health of the heart. This year’s celebration included numerous activities. A group of parents of children with cerebral palsy had the opportunity to participate in an experiential workshop led by Frosina Ristovska – psychologist and psychotherapist, titled “Take care of your heart, don’t let it fall apart” by means of which the parents had the opportunity to dedicate some time to themselves and to self-reflection. For the youngest patients who have undergone an intervention or a heart surgery, a creative workshop and a tour through the Museum of Illusions were organized, titled “We are all the same in the game #for good health’s sake, run, jump, and shake”. It was impressive to see the laughter and joy of all present and see how friendships that are created in different conditions last for a long time. This month we were also active on Facebook live and we were guests in TV shows, and through these activities we tried to convey the message about the importance of active and healthy lifestyles that help us preserve our health. Until the next activity which we believe will happen soon, don’t forget to be active, choose healthy food, control the level of blood fat, control blood pressure, reduce sugar intake, stop smoking, and most importantly do not forget to laugh and enjoy the nature of the people who care about you.
