American Heart Month is our nation’s annual reminder to take care of the perhaps most neglected organ in the human body. However, we believe that a heart-healthy lifestyle should be a year-round, life-long effort, this month, next month and always. And it’s not too late to start helping someone else take care of their heart and to do the same for yourself.
Although some risk factors can’t be changed, such as age and heredity, many factors—including cholesterol, blood pressure, obesity, and inactivity—can be modified. Thus can significantly lower the risk of heart disease. And because lifestyle habits can strongly influence these modifiable risk factors, here are 10 lifestyle strategies you can consider to promote a healthy heart.
Ten Lifestyle Strategies for Promoting a Healthy Heart:
1. Make more healthful food choices.
2. Lose the belly fat and keep it off.
3. Get more of the “sunshine” vitamin.
4. Go fishing with omega-3 fatty acids.
5. Protect your body against free radicals and oxidative stress.
6. Boost your phytonutrient intake.
7. Fill up on fiber.
8. Find a friend in Coenzyme Q10.
10. Take time to De-stress.
I hope you will take action on at least one or two of these strategies that you are not already doing.
