February 2014 is American Heart Health Month, and a fantastic time to reevaluate your health and consider your insurance needs. Cardiovascular disease has become a major health threat in America over the past few decades, but through awareness and research funding the risk has been slowly reduced.
What Can You Do to Increase Your Heart Health?
Start exercising regularly — aerobic exercise is best for your heart.
Get a check up at the doctor — especially regarding your cholesterol levels.
Eat healthy foods — nuts contain good fats, as do fruits such as avocados.
Try not to be stressed out — stress can contribute to heart issues.
Consider quitting smoking — smoking can greatly increase the risk of heart disease.
Reduce your blood pressure — a low sodium diet is one of the fastest ways towards heart health.
