Raise Heart Health Awareness during the month of February... and beyond!
1. High blood pressure
2. High cholesterol
You are in control of your heart health starting at day 1. These steps can help you be heart-health conscious:
- Do not smoke, or kick the habit of smoking. Just by quitting smoking, you will improve your overall quality of life and add years back.
- Maintain regular physical exams with your healthcare team. Keep aware of your health and take the steps necessary to mitigate health risks as they arise.
- Eat heart-healthy foods such as a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, skinless poultry and fish, nuts and legumes, and non-tropical vegetable oils.
- Stay active. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity (or an equal combination of both) each week.
