February is American Heart Month. Did you know that no matter your age there are simple things you can do TODAY to help improve your heart’s health?
- Move more – even the most inactive couch potato can do chair exercises during commercial breaks.
- Eat for your heart – eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, eat less fatty, salty and fried foods
- Reduce your stress – make time to do things that you find relaxing, like listening to soft jazz if that’s your thing.
- Get regular checkups – do see your family doctor for regular visits and talk with them about health changes you are noticing
