Make today, World Heart Day, the day you start making heart health a priority—incorporating a few healthy practices into your routine is all it takes.
- Get moving and stay moving. Whether you’re training for a marathon or taking a brisk walk, find a way to incorporate exercise into your daily life. Getting your heartbeat up for 40 minutes three to four times a week can help fight off heart disease and stroke, as well as reduce blood pressure and stress levels.
- Fuel up and eat mindfully. You are what you eat! Make sure your body is getting the nutrition it needs to keep you going.
- Stop smoking and stay tobacco-free. Smoking increases your disk of a cardiovascular disease, as well as makes it harder for you to reach the rest of your health goals. Use American Heart Association’s resources to help you quit.
