How To Lead A Heart Healthy Lifestyle

The Inside Scoop On A Healthier Heart

If you are like many Americans, you may have written at least one New Year’s resolution centered on improving your health and well being this year. What better way to become healthier than by making lifestyle changes that will serve one of your body’s most important organs- your heart? Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States; so keeping your heart healthy should be one of your top priorities. Use these tips to keep your ticker going strong in 2015 and beyond.

  1. Track Your Eating:Your diet is one of the key components to keeping your heart healthy. Keep an eye on what you put into your body to fuel it. Are you getting the nutrients you need? Are you taking in copious amounts of processed food? Start small, but work towards creating a healthful diet for yourself.
  2. Get Moving:Exercising each day does not mean you have to sprint or bench press. Fitting just thirty minutes of cardio into your day—even a walk—will go a long way towards strengthening your heart. After all, your heart is a muscular organ and it needs to get worked out just like any other muscle.
  3. Stop Smoking:Did you know that cigarettes can make you twice, or even three times, as likely to die of coronary heart disease. Put down the pack, and your heart will thank you. You will see improved health right away, and just a few years after quitting your risk of stroke and heart disease is comparable to that of someone who has never smoked.
