February Heart Healthy tips!
It's FEBRUARY... which means LOVE is in the air, and chocolate and desserts. Heart health is SO important, it's the key to longevity and vitality. Heart health goes a long way to preventing cardiovascular disease, High blood pressure, high cholesterol and can be kept under control with SIMPLE Lifestyle changes!
Watch salt and sugar: People are so concerned with calories that they often over look sodium and sugar in foods! Limit sugars to natural sources like fruits and steer clear of sodium laden foods like fast food, processed and frozen foods.
Get those Omega-3's in!! Salmon, oatmeal, walnuts are great sources. Or you can take Udo's oil, flax oil or fish oil daily to cover it, either way it's heart healthy!
Get your heart pumping with at least 30 minutes of activity a day for general health. Keep active, moving and breathless when you are working out and you increase your capacity to use oxygen. The more your heart can use, the more fit you are!
Reduce stress in your life! Eliminate obligations and situations that keep you under unhealthy pressure, limit time with strenuous people and toxic relationships! You can clear your schedule as fast as you filled it and your heart will thank you.
Walk in forgiveness. Holding resentments will only hurt you and have been linked to stress related illness. Don't drink poison hoping someone else will die, walk in love and forgiveness and HEALTH for your heart, LITERALLY!
Happy HEART Month!!
