Heart Health Awareness


February is diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables

  • Get your cholesterol checked at least once a year
  • Exercise 30 to 60 minutes a day, four to five days a week
  • Avoid cigarette smoking and tobacco use
  • Limit alcohol intake
  • Monitor your blood pressure
  • Watch your waistline
  • Take prescribed medication as scheduled
  • Meet regularly with your healthcare providers
  • Don’t skip medical appointments and screenings, including your 6 month dental check-ups

As you embark on your journey for a healthier heart, bear in mind the following to make the process more manageable:

  • Partner up. Ask friends and family to join you. Keep one another motivated and you’ll achieve better results.
  • Don’t become overwhelmed; remember to take it one step at a time.
  • Choose fun things to do to decrease your stress levels.
  • Reward yourself often, to keep from becoming discouraged.

The American Heart Association recommends that the best course of action is to get regular check-ups and know your risks. Women often neglect getting themselves checked, as they tend to be the caregiver, but self-assessment is imperative for prevention. If you are concerned about your heart health, contact your physician today and start making the necessary lifestyle changes as soon as possible.
