Think about your eating habits.
Making a few changes in your eating habits can make a difference. Control your portion size, think about whole grain options, eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, and limit your sodium and fat in-take.
Think about your activity level.
Adding physical activity with healthy eating habits can assist in weight control, lowering high blood pressure and high cholesterol. It is also a great way to relieve and reduce stress. Thirty to sixty minutes of moderate physical activity most days of the week would benefit your heart health. Taking the stairs or walking the dog can also help.
Think about regular screenings.
Having high blood pressure and high cholesterol can affect your heart, so it is important to have regular screenings. Visit your doctor to know your blood pressure and cholesterol numbers or be on the lookout for free health screenings in your community.
