Life’s Simple 7

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer!  One needs to live a healthy lifestyle involving daily exercise and a healthy diet to reduce heart disease.

The American Heart Association has identified seven health and behavior factors that impact health and quality of life. We know that even simple, small changes can make a big difference in living a better life.

Known as “Life’s Simple 7,” these steps can help add years to your life:

don’t smoke;

maintain a healthy weight;

engage in regular physical activity;

eat a healthy diet;

manage blood pressure;

take charge of cholesterol; and

keep blood sugar, or glucose, at healthy levels.

So follow them as much as possible and be healthy!
