There are ways that you can help to prevent heart disease in your family. Some very simple steps can be taken that include maintaining a healthy weight, controlling diet with foods that are good for you, managing stress and staying active. And these are all things that you can do at Barefoot Landing.

Next time you're visiting Barefoot Landing, walk around and enjoy the scenery and the wildlife. Bring the whole family including your dog, as we are pet friendly and love to see all family members enjoying the healthy benefits of wandering around Barefoot Landing as well. Stroll along the Intracoastal Waterway, along the boardwalks and over the lake. You will find that you can be very relaxed as you enjoy everything that Barefoot Landing's surroundings have to offer. And the exercise will keep the whole family active, which is one of the steps to prevent heart disease.

Stop at your favorite shops. Doing things that make you happy also can help with your stress levels. Wander into the shops and see what they have to offer. You may discover a new place that you find has unique products that interest you. Beach House has items that will take your mind and body to the beach in spirit. Earthbound Trading Company has apparel and home furnishings that will remind you of the outdoors and nature. Bud 'n Belle has calming bath soaps and other pieces that help ease your mind and soul.

Make a plan to have lunch or dinner at one of the many restaurants or eateries. TBonz, Flying Fish and Joe's Crab Shack have gluten free menu items for those with gluten allergies. At most restaurants, if you ask your server if they can prepare your meals without certain items, they will be glad to accommodate your dietary needs. And you can sit on the water at most of our restaurants, whether it's on the lake or the Intracoastal Waterway, just one more way to de-stress and enjoy the scenery.

Such simple things that can make a big difference and make you happy, which again, in turn, lowers stress, your heart rate and your blood pressure, can be simple and easy. Barefoot Landing, not only a great place to shop, eat and be entertained, but also a great place to relax and unwind for Heart Month and good heart health!
