Get Healthy this American Heart Month

Learn how you can care for your heart.

February is American Heart Month, an annual health campaign that asks Americans to take a more vested interest in their heart.  With cardiovascular disease still the leading cause of death in the U.S., it’s more important than ever to take care of your heart.  Here are some of the things you can do to make your heart health a priority this month.

Schedule an Appointment

This February, make sure you schedule an appointment with your physician.  Ask them to run the necessary diagnostic tests so they can get a good understanding of your current health.  After the examination, work with your doctor to create your long-term health plan.  Make sure you ask your doctor any questions you might have; it’s important that you understand the reasoning behind the advice that they offer.

Establish Healthy Habits

Another way to take better care of your heart is by making healthy lifestyle changes.  For instance, you should avoid eating fatty, cholesterol-heavy foods.  Instead, load up on heart-healthy food like fish, nuts, oats, and fresh produce.  Additionally, you should make an effort to step up your exercise regime this month.  Getting the recommended 30-minutes of aerobic activity a day will keep your heart strong and healthy.

Break Bad Habits

If you are a smoker, then you are placing your heart at risk every time you light up a cigarette.  Keep in mind that smoking can also cause health problems for the people around you.  Additionally, if you often overindulge in alcohol, then you are placing unnecessary strain on your heart.  This February, renew your efforts to break these bad habits for the sake of your heart.

Try out these suggestions to take better care of your heart.  Want another way to make your health a priority?  Then speak to the professionals at Lloyd S. Berkett Insurance Agency in Los Angeles to secure the right health insurance coverage for your needs and budget.
