In our May issue, actress Cheryl Hines, spokesperson for Go Red for Women and a star of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, shared some of the best health advice she’s gotten from her mom, Rosemary Harbolt. Her mom’s healthy wisdom: “If you’re stressed, take a deep breath and let it go.” Good advice! (We fact checked it: Mindful breathing helps people gain a healthier perspective on repetitive negative thoughts, a recent study found.)

Cheryl is a fit-minded lady we love because health is a topic close to her heart. After her father suffered a massive heart attack, Cheryl has been building a more heart-healthy lifestyle for herself and her daughter, and making it her personal mission to spread the word that heart disease is the number one killer of women in America.

We think Mother’s Day is the perfect time to join Cheryl in getting the message out to all the amazing moms and women we know. Click here to Tell 5 Friends how they can fight heart disease.

And visit the Go Red for Women Facebook page, where you can Tell Mom “Thanks” with a free Mother’s Day card through their sponsor, Macy’s.
