Heart Healthy Habits

Your heart works hard each day for you. Love your heart in return. 

HABIT 1: NUTRITION. Meet with a registered dietitian to create a simple and healthy nutrition plan developed just for you to help manage your weight, glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure. 

HABIT 2: ACTIVITY. Start a simple workout routine each day to strengthen your heart and help it beat and pump with less effort. 

HABIT 3: GLUCOSE. Check your glucose, as recommended by your doctor, to keep your blood sugar in range and help prevent heart disease. 

HABIT 4: CHOLESTEROL. Keep your cholesterol in check to avoid plaque buildup in the arteries of your heart.  

HABIT 5: BLOOD PRESSURE. Limit your sodium to help you lower or avoid high blood pressure and reduce your risk of kidney and heart disease. 

HABIT 6: SMOKE FREE. Avoid first or secondhand smoke to avoid nicotine, which narrows and restricts your blood vessels.
