28 Tips to Celebrate Heart Health Month





Just in case you haven't heard, it is Heart Health Month. It is never too early to start taking care of your heart and SparkPeople.com have created a great calendar of tips to guide you on your path to a healthy heart.

Here's a few highlights:

  • Get a check - Doctors don't just treat disease, they can perform screenings and tests to figure out what area in your diet and health that need improvement.
  • Slow down - chronic stress leads to high blood pressure, which puts you at risk for heart disease and strokes.
  • Eat 6 to 8 ounces of baked or broiled fish a week for Omega-3 fatty acids which promote heart health.

It is a great resource and in a PDF file. So you can print it out easily and put it on your fridge to remind you of why you shouldn't be eating another helping of ice cream.
