Love your heart

In the United States, someone suffers a heart attack every 40 seconds. Many factors impact your risk for heart disease. Some, such as age, gender, ethnicity and family history, you cannot control. Others you can control.

By focusing on these, you can actively work to lower your risk of heart disease:

  • Control your blood pressure
  • Don’t smoke or use other forms of tobacco
  • Lower your cholesterol
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Choose healthy food options
  • Exercise regularly
  • Manage stress
  • Limit alcohol use
  • Manage your diabetes
  • Get enough sleep
