Heart Health Month- February 2021

How To Observe American Heart Month

1. Take up a heart-healthy habit

Staying active, eating healthy, and watching our weight are all important parts of maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system. Pick a new heart-healthy habit like jogging or substituting sodas with water and try to stick to it for a whole month.

2. Educate yourself

Learn about the risk factors for heart disease, the ways you can prevent them, and the lifestyle choices that can help you stay healthy.

3. Get your cholesterol tested

If you’re worried you might be at risk for heart disease, ask your doctor to perform a simple cholesterol test to let you know if you’re at risk and should make an adjustment to your diet.

4. Check your blood pressure regularly

Make sure your numbers are within the normal ranges.
