Love Your Heart


To keep your heart healthy:

  • Watch your weight
  • Quit tobacco smoking and avoid secondhand cigarette and cigar smoke
  • Control your cholesterol and blood pressure
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation
  • Get active: aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity 5 days a week
  • Eat healthy: challenge yourself to replace at least one meal a week with a healthier version or recipe
  • Talk to your doctor to determine if aspirin is the right therapy for you
  • Manage your stress

Quitting tobacco use is one of the hardest habits to break, but also one of the most important behaviors you can adopt for a healthy heart. Quitting is hard, but it can be done. The sooner you can quit, the quicker your body can begin to heal and the better you will feel.
