This month is a great time to zero in on some of the ways we can keep our hearts healthy. This month, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute has launched #OurHearts, an initiative to encourage everyone to adopt heart healthy behaviors, together. Studies show that if you join forces at home, at work, in your community, or online, you have a better chance of staying motivated.
Start with small steps:
Remember - Some physical activity is better than none.
Aim for a healthy weight.
Choose - Heart healthy foods and regular exercise help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
Eat healthy foods.
Try - Find an eating plan that is successful for you and supports your diabetes management.
Ask - Your family and friends can support you in your efforts to become a non-smoker.
There is a lot you can do to prevent heart disease. Work with your family, friends, or neighbors to meet your heart health goals! Learn more at:
