Steps to Improve Your Health – Reducing Heart Disease

Heart disease causes one in three deaths in the U.S., but you can follow these 5 easy steps to reduce your risk of heart disease. Reducing heart disease saves lives as well as millions in health care costs.

Set a goal to lose 5 pounds. A loss of 5 to 10 pounds not only improves your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar, it also improves your self-confidence.

Be active 5 days a week by simply walking more. Park farther away from the store when doing errands, use the stairs rather than the elevator, and take a 15-30 minute brisk walk.

Eat 5 times a day. By all means, start your day with a good breakfast, including more protein than carbs. Don’t skip lunch or dinner, and add 2 healthy snacks. Don’t forget water as your beverage of choice.

Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Few Americans are eating the recommended amounts of produce. Be creative, knowing many fruits and veggies are great raw or cooked. This is a great way to get more nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber.

Take 5 minutes for yourself each day. Nearly 85 percent of health problems may be stress induced, and to help manage your stress, take those 5 minutes. Still yourself, breathe deeply and be! This may be your time to sip tea, meditate, read your daily message, or listen to music. Be sure to think positive and smile!
