February is American Heart Month!

7 simple steps to a longer, healthier life

By AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION NEWS

Taking care of yourself can lead to a longer, healthier life. There are seven simple steps that research has shown can make a difference. Each involves making good choices and require some discipline, but all are doable.

Dubbed “Life’s Simple 7” by the American Heart Association, they involve:

  1. Eating better, that can stave off chronic disease. Steps include increasing your intake of vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.

  2. Maintaining a healthy weight because this can reduce the burden on your heart, lungs, blood vessels and bones.

  3. Exercising, that can help with your cholesterol levels, weight and muscle tone.

  4. Quitting cigarettes because even one can hurt you.

  5. Managing blood pressure. Unhealthy ranges strain the heart, arteries and kidneys.

  6. Controlling cholesterol to give your arteries the best chance to stay clear of fatty blockages that reduce blood flow.

  7. Reducing blood sugar. This can lower the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease.
